Slowly but surely...

my mojo is returning.  I lifted a layout from Jen Armentrout from the "Lift the person above you" Studio Calico CHA Challenge and that helped tremendously!!  Thanks to Jennifer Armentrout for providing the inspiration.  
I just love this picture of my sweet dear daughter.  Don't you just want to pinch her cheeks?? Those were the days that I dressed up my sweet girls in frilly homemade dresses and bonnets.  I used to sew my heart out in those days.  Of course, that was before I started scrapbooking.   I have always seemed to have some kind of craft to pour myself into.  Crafting is definitely theraputic and I am so thankful I have found scrapbooking.  These old pictures stir my heart, and I take that emotion and pour it into each and every page!  I love my kids more than my words can express, and I hope my pages convey that emotion!

I hope you have a great day and I hope to return with more pages in the days to come!  I have several projects in the works!!

May the Son shine in your heart today!
Kristii
