Scrappin' all weekend long!

If you have a chance to go to a scrap booking retreat I recommend you jump in your car and go. This is the 3rd time I have been able to go to Arbor Oaks Retreat house in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I have not laughed this hard in a long time. The ladies we went with I have grown love in just a few days. We made memories that will last a lifetime and we plan on going back.

Since I began my Faith 365 scrap booking crops, So many wonderful stories of life triumphs and words of encouragement have been shared. So many meaningful friendships that bring me joy have been made. I am truly blessed.

I recently came across this quote,

" When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me".
Erma Bombeck

I just pray everyday we use our talents to inspire ourselves and others. Seek the Lord our God with all your heart. Have Faith 365 days a year....Even when you are walking through the valley always look on the bright side.

Here are the layouts I made this weekend. I realized I have so much catching up to do.... But for now I will just take it one layout at a time!!!!

I made one other layout but you will have to check back on the 15th, I made it for the What is Your Fave Thing Challenge. Check out all the fabulous inspiration on this blog.

Have a great week. Hugs to all!
