Fairy Fun Fridays "Anything Goes" Challenge!

Okay. Just to let you know, I am several days late posting this layout! I should have had it up Friday, but did not. Why, you may ask? Well, because when it rains, it pours! In the past week my car had to go into the shop (grand total of nearly $900), my hubby has been laid off until February, our son had to go to the ER (he is okay!), and I took on some freelance work editing/laying out a friend's new magazine, which kept me very busy several evenings last week. However, my faith is strong and I am keeping my head up! I am trying to let God have total control and realize that everything happens for a reason. The wonderful Roberta helped me with that this very weekend with kind emails and understanding words. I am so appreciative to be on her DT. It is definitely a blessing because not only do I get to play with her wonderful images, but I also get to work with someone so patient, sweet and understanding!

So, this layout is for Fairy Fun Friday!! The current challenge going on is "anything goes!" So, I went with a layout of our adorable cousin that I was able to compliment with some beautiful digital images from Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps. The flowers and leaves can be found in Roberta's store and are really fabulous to work with! A lovely vine comes with this set too, but I just decided to use the leaves. I colored the images with Prisma pencils and use pop dots for the dimension. The buttons in the flower centers are antique ones from my stash and the thread is Bazzill. I am not sure who the kraft cardstock is by, but the black cardstock is Bazzill. The polka dot paper is by Junkitz and the leaf paper I made by using a SU wheel stamp. The border punch is SU, the chipboard letters are by K&C0., distressing ink by StampCraft, the adhesive paper ribbon trim is by Flair Designs and I used a Sharpie for journaling.

The photo was taken when we were doing family photos for Christmas. Casey was having such a good time and if you can get him to slow down long enough for a photo, it is a miracle! He has so much energy! I just happened to click several shots of him and got this one, which we loved, hence the title, 'Still.' The journaling is Psalms 46:10 and reads, Be still and know that I am God. I just thought that went so well with this layout!

I hope you will take the time to hop on over to Fairy Fun Fridays and see the amazing work by the other DT members, and take part in the current challenge! Roberta is offering some great goodies for the winner! And, don't forget to visit her store HERE! She has several new releases that are just too cute! Happy Scrappin'!
