Scrappin' Friends

Monday, September 27, 2010


Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by. I haven't been around much lately. Several things have been happening. One of which is I lost my scrappin' drive. I don't really know what happened but the darn thing just disappeared. Either that or it just feel and broke into a million pieces. Well, some of it came back and I'm going to share two LOs that I created for Scrap U assignments.

This LO is dedicated to my daughter who battles autism. We try to remember to say battle instead of has. We believe that one day, God will heal her of the disorder. Also, when people hear she has autism, they focus on the disability versus her ability. There is so much she can do and we want to share it with the world. Everyday, we see the improvement and know that it is a ongoing process but that God is faithful to His Word. The work that He has begun, He is faithful to complete it.

The second LO is of me and my youngest son, Caleb. I had to pick a picture that described three different words - one for each word. I'll share the other pictures too. They are not placed into a LO but it's just the picture. I enjoyed making this LO.

SILLINESS - Do I really have to explain? I call him my Butterball Ham and he corrects me and says he's my Chunky Monkey. Gotta love this kid!

REFLECTION -This scene causes me to take pause and reflect on how good God is and how much He loves me.

LOVE - Not only do I love this picture but it displays the love between myself and my youngest.

Lovin' your layout. My daughter has a condition that mimics some of the symptoms of Autism. I love your attitude. Yes, God will heal our children:)

I love this post! I'm glad you Scrap Mojo is making a comeback since we don't quite feel like ourselves without it. Love the layouts too. Your kids seem amazing :)

Wow these are wonderful pages.
I know your little girl will one day help others with this disorder and you will be amazed but it will be because of your positive attitude. I just retired from teaching and I wish I had more parents who supported their children they way you are.
I look forward to working with you at SSDS.
Welcome aboard,
