My quiet time...

I have found the last couple of days to be very stressful..... It is what it is. So in the midst of all the crazyness, I have found my quiet place. I have shared before that my 6x8 walk in closet in my bedroom is my scrappy place. Well now it is my quiet place too. I have done a little reorganizing. Whenever I am feeling overwhelmed I just step into my "closet" and take a moment.... All the stuff in there inspires me. I can pray, read my bible or another good book, listen to the radio and just create.

Do you have a quiet place?

So last night I was able to scrap a little.... One I will share in a couple of days when our challenge for Fave Things goes live... You have just a day left to get your Fave Toy submitted, If you need inspiration go check out the blog....our design team has posted all our favorite toys...

Here are 3 little bits of inspiration for you!!!!

This is my friend Thuy {twee} and I. She is the friend I stayed with in Texas. Such a sweetheart for opening her house to my daughter and I. We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
Thank You again Thuy! P.S. Thanks for the fabulous BBQ. I want some more Brisquet Tacos.

There are so many butterflies flying around. I took these pictures the other day and I love them. The black rub on words and butterflies are a Jenni Bowlin kit exclusive but it was all one big piece. I cut out what I wanted to use and the words I wanted to use and made it perfect for me. That is the cool thing about rub ons. you only have to rub on what you want on your page.

Jaxon loves to swim... I know you probably think I am crazy for always putting pictures with their eyes closed.... But I love this picture... He loves to just jump in the water... no fear at all. I love the drop of water coming off his ear. To me it is a perfect shot and perfect timing!!!! The "stuff " I used on this layout is from the project kit for Jenni Bowlin. The only thing that did not come in the kit is the pom pom ball ribbon. The sun in the bottom corner is actually a star, I just used 2 and layered them.

Hey.....You gotta go check out My Paper Tree House.... It is a new blog...Not only do they have fabulous paper crafting kits but they also have tutorials and challenges with prizes....And so cool on Saturdays they share a little faith with us. The girls on the team are super talented I am so excited to be a part.

So hope you all have a wonderful week...It is a new day. Seek happiness, have fun, enjoy life....LIVE!
