The Best of Me

A little while back I posted about ideas for scrapping about myself on the Club Ck message board, which by the way, if you aren't a member of you should be, those ladies over there are absolutely wonderful! Every week they have a one hour challenge, and when I saw what the one hour challenge was for this week, I knew right away what I wanted to scrap.

This layout doesn't have a picture of me, in fact, the picture I used has been handled so much, the colors don't really go with the layout, its from my old camera so its pretty grainy, but I took it with me when I went on a retreat and truly gave my life to Christ, so I knew I wanted to use it because it was such a profound moment for me, and I recieved the spirit while praying over it, at least the first time for me in private, I had felt the spirit before, but always in group prayer. This layout is not really about that moment, but what I felt God was telling me at the moment.

This layout is very special to me, and I hope that when my girls and husband read this they truly realize how special they are to me, and that without them, I wouldn't be any where near the person I am today.

I am also submitting this for a challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, which is a wonderful faith based challenge should definitely check it out as well!!

Hope everyone has a blessed week!!

Sometimes the blurry, imperfect snapshots are my favorites! Beautiful story, beautiful layout!

Hi Amanda,
Wanted to leave you a note that the punch I used on my card on my blog is from EK Success. You can get it at JoAnn's, that's where I got it.
Thanks for commenting on my blog! :)

That is a great layout and it doesn't matter if the photo isn't perfect. What matters is that you've wonderfully commemorated a special time. On a side note, I like how you folded the strips of paper down the sides. It really gives it dimension and texture!
