A Thankful Heart and LRS Reveal

Hi there dear friends!!  I hope all is well with you!  I am writing this post with a thankful heart this morning!  Yesterday my son was involved in an accident that totaled his car, but I am so happy to say that everyone involved was ok!  He has a scratch and a bruise and his neck is sore, but he is ok!  I can't even begin to tell you the depths of thankfulness that abound in my heart this morning!   Thanks be to God, who I am certain was watching out for all involved!

Times like this make me very thankful that I have a creative outlet too.  I pour my heart and soul into my creations and it is so therapeutic for my soul!  It was my turn to create a sketch for the Little Red Scrapbook blog this month and I made a very basic sketch for all to play with:

I love getting out those old photos of my kids and think back to the good old days!  I chose an Easter picture from 1992 for my first layout for the Little Red Scrapbook May kit.  I used to make matching dresses every year for the girls and these dresses were two of my favorites!  For the layout, I punched the edges of the patterned paper with a Martha Stewart edge and corner punch.  I just love shaped background papers!!

I just loved all the chipboard stickers included in the kit!  So much fun to play with!
The bow was strategically placed so that it covered up the "cute" on the circular tag.  I liked using the Pink Paislee alphas as the main title.
 The yellow tissue paper in the kit was perfect for a little layered sunshine.
 In the next layout, a momma robin built a nest in a wreath hung by the back door.  We could see her perfectly by opening the back door just a bit.  Such sights warm my heart clear through!
I colored the Pink Paislee Alphas with a Light Prawn Copic Marker and I loved the results!

I just love the photo of Heidi in this next layout!!! Isn't she the cutest?
 I made a sweet little scrunched flower with the tissue paper in the kit and added a sweet little bow.
I was really into all the banners included in the kit and decided to make one of my own with my Papertrey Ink Banner Dies, so fun!!!
 Don't you just love this sticker combination?  Bee Happy?  Gives me a smile just thinking about it!
 I wanted to make some quick and easy cards out of these cute little stickers.  I stamped the sentiment onto the card and onto another sheet of paper.  I used the sentiment stamped on the paper to mask the sentiment on the card and then I stamped a dot background over the middle third of the card.  Such a quick and easy way to cheer up a friend!!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog!!!  I appreciate you letting me share my heart with you!
Have a wonderful day,
