A Scrappy Kind of Challenge at A Crafty Little Place!!!

I am so happy to announce that A Crafty Little Place is now holding a SCRAP CHALLENGE! We have several of our fantastic DT members on our brand new Crafty Scrappers Team. Every other week you will find a new sketch challenge made just for all of us scrapbookers!

The best part of this is that YOU can play along too! Get out those photos and dust off those scrappy supplies that you've been hoarding. With our sketches we are taking most of the obstacle out of the way for you...all you need to do is add the final touches that will make this layout creatively yours.

To get all of the deets on the challenge please click HERE.

Here is the sketch for the current challenge:

The Crafty Scrappers worked with the Lush DP from MME. You can find it at DCRU
I also worked with the following products from the DCRU line up...

Lush Pink Damask(flocked and GORGEOUS)

Here is what my project looks like...

"Sisters in bloom"

These are some of the pictures of my little sweet, Bekah getting used to the new little sister that had come home from the hospital. Doesn't she look just smitten with little, Aubrey? They are fantastic buddies now and I sincerely hope that their special relationship carries on with them throughout their lives.

I just can't believe how much they have both grown since these moments were captured. Each day I look at these precious little faces and I see less of the little babies and more of a growing independent individual with ideas, tastes and preferrences of their very own. I remember as a new Mom hearing people say that it will go too fast. I remember thinking, "Oh, if I hear that one more time...". Well, they were all right. It does go too fast. If you aren't looking in the right direction you might actually miss the grandest and most spectacular adventure of your lifetime...

Your Children!

Hugs to all of the little ones in the world right now. I wish they could all have families to hold them tight and love them each and every day. I pray that in the end my own children will look back and know that they were loved greatly, albeit, imperfectly by their Mommy.
They are each the greatest loves of my life!

Anna, Bekah, Aubrey and Brooke...I love you!
