My Beautiful View (Artful Delight)

I made another layout with the Artful Delight November kit a few days ago. I used a picture that's very special so I kept the page pretty simple in order to let it shine. I think it worked because I just adore how it looks, and since that's what matters most, I'm a very happy lady! :)

Supplies Used From The Artful Delight November Kit: Fancy Pants Lilac House Paper - Lavender Leaves, Chamomile, English Garden & Strips; Tattered Angerls Glimmer Mist - Juneberry Wine

Additional Supplies: Craft Smart Ink - Chocolate Brown; Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punches; EK Success Scallop Photo Corner Punch; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Stickers - Brown; Recollections Pearls
*Inspired by Helen Croft's Sketch #28

I took this amazing picture last year when we went to the beach. I absolutely LOVE it. When I look at it of course I see the gorgeous ocean, but what really catches my eye is my beautiful family. I am SO thankful for them and pictures like this are the ones that really mean the most to me. Moments that I will always remember and that will forever capture how blessed I am. God has really been good to me. ;)

I hope you don't mind my mushiness, but I've really been thinking alot lately about how lucky I am and I want to be sure that I don't ever take what I have for granted. I want to be thankful each and every day, and making layouts like this one will really help me to do that...

So anyway, this is the second layout that I've made from the kit so far, as well as a card and another project I've already started working on, and I haven't even made a dent in what was in it yet! It's such an amazing value and if you get yourself one (available for purchase here), I promise you won't regret it. :) Thanks for stopping by today!

Just a note: I receive the Artful Delight monthly kit for free because I'm a DT member, but please be assured that my opinions are my own! Anything I say about these kits is how I truly feel. ;)
