His Faith Grows

Praise God! It seems that I just might have overcome my scrap funk and emerged on the other side! I guess I need to unload on y'all more often! LOL! I said some prayers and sequestered myself in my scrap room last night and was finally able to get the layout that I had been working on for weeks done! Yay! I was so happy that I went right into another layout of our son that I had started over the weekend and finished it. Then, I even made a card! So not only did I get out of my funk, I was on a roll!!

This layout is of my hubby when we went to the Wichita Mtns. on Memorial Weekend. We had so much fun and I was able to take some great photos. This one is one of my favorites from that day.

The cardstock used for the project is Bazzill, while the stripe patterned paper is Basic Grey, and the orange patterned paper is Miss Elizabeth. I inked the edges of pretty much everything and then used some scrap crochet ribbon, which I sewed onto the layout with yarn. The flowers I made using a new technique I learned about over at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot. Instead of using glimmer mist though, I just inked the creases heavy for a more grungy looking effect. The buttons are from my stash. The chipboard parentheses are by DCWV and the chipboard bird is Basic Grey. I used the Opposites Attract & Home Accents cart for the title.

I really liked this layout and how it turned out in the end even though I need to find a way to add some journaling to it. My husband has come a very long way in his faith journey from the first time I met him. I couldn't be more proud of him and look forward to watching his faith grow stronger day by day, year after year. God blessed me profusely when He brought Andy into my life and I am so grateful each and every day. I went for the grungy, distressed look on the layout because for me, faith isn't always an easy or pretty path to walk. It is filled with struggles and sometimes ugliness that we have to face in order to come out stronger in the end. Our trials in life make us stronger and it is our faith that brings us through them.

I am just so happy that I have my mojo back! Can't wait to get home, finish dinner tonight and scrap some more!!!

Happy Scrapping!
