Before I go any further with this post, I'd like to ask everyone to stop for a second and pray. Pray for all of those who are sick, just not feeling well, going through some sort of valley/struggles/temptations, or WHATEVER!!! As Christians/Believers, we don't have to know exactly what someone is going through. Only that they have a burden that requires our intervention of prayer. We may not always be able to physically do something for someone else. But prayer works WONDERS! Therefore, that's the least we can do.
Specifically, I ask you to continue to pray for my MIL. She came home from the hospital on Saturday and is doing much, much better. She will still have to go see a cardiologist to follow up with the hospital visit. But we're pretty sure, things will be fine. Secondly, please say a quick prayer for Adrienne. Most of you know her and have probably read her blog today. If not, check it out and let's keep her lifted up. Lastly, pray for me. Pray that I make it through another day with Jayla at home :-), lol. She goes back to school tomorrow and she can't WAIT!!! As I've told you before, she absolutely LOVES school and isn't too happy of a camper when she's not there. Therefore, she's worrying me to death about when she's going back. (Note: I realize this last prayer request is probably a little misplaced, considering the seriousness of the ones it follows. But I thought I'd try and lighten the mood a bit.)
OK...now, back to my original post. I recently read a post by Leah, where she listed 10 of her most favorite scrapbook layouts of 2007. I actually thought about doing the same thing. However, I realized that I'd be hardpressed to find TEN that I even completed last year :-). Then, last night, I was reading Cheryl's blog...and she went and did the same thing (she's been reading Leah's blog too, lol) So now you know what that means...the pressure is ON! Well, I'm feeling it anyway. So last night I went through all my LO's and I did in fact find 10 that I could say were my favs...or at the very least, some I really liked and could stand to see again in a public forum such as this, lol.
Alrighty, in no particular order...here are 10 of my favs from 2007. WARNING: there may be a little bit of a Jayla overload here, LOL. Remember, she is the last one still at home. So I just work with what I have, TEE HEE. Hope you enjoy.
This is a LO I did of me and my hubby. I actually saw the idea of the holes on another LO somewhere and thought it would be beautiful with colored paper behind it. Then I thought of the song, "Color my world" by Chicago and I knew it would all work perfectly with the B&W photos.
Not too much to say about this one. As the title says it all...BEAUTIFUL!!! I simply LOVE these pics if Jayla. Such a sweet & innocent face. LOVE it!
Here is a LO I did for my friend and fellow blogger, Veroncia. Her daughter, Ava was another beautiful subject to work with. V and I swapped photos and these are of her daughters dance recital.
It's not often I get to do a LO of my DH. Probably because he doesn't like taking pictures :-). But this one, I LOVE of him. And being that purple is my favorite color, finding the perfect papers to use was bunches of fun. I love how it turned out.Yet another rarity...a photo of me and my dad. This is the LO I did for my dad for Fathers Day last year. I think I saw a tear in his eye when he saw it. I sure hope it was because he liked it :-).
Now here's a fun LO of me and my hubby. I really love these pictures of us. And as much as I thought we didn't "match" this evening. I do think we complimented eachother well. Therefore, it made the choice of colors & papers come together well. The balance of the B&W helps, I think.
Okie dokie, that's my long post for the day :-). I hope you enjoyed the pictures. And for those of you who feel "led" to do this same type of post, I'd love to see your work.
Ya'll have a great day...I'm off to try and entertain my 6 year old, LOL.
