Absolute Blessing

Hi there friends!! I'd like to share this layout I created earlier today with you. It all started when I saw a new sketch posted over at Helen Croft's blog (Scrap A Little) that is just awesome! I really love working with Helen's sketches so I knew I wanted to create something with it...






Supplies: My Mind's Eye Love Me Do Paper - Forever In Plaid, Rock & Roll Heart, Heart Of The Matter; Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Scattered Straw, Fired Brick; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - This Is The Day; Fiskars Flit On By Butterfly Punch; EK Success Double Heart Punch; Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly Punch; Martha Stewart 3-in-1 Classic Butterfly Punch; EK Success PSN LE Circles Border Punch; Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter; Basic Grey Button; CK Jot Computer Font

Isn't that so pretty?? I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out and the colors are amazing. This is such a precious picture to me because it's the first one taken of us after Madison was born. I had just become a mommy of 2 and we had become a family of 4 so we were all very happy! It was such a special day and one I'll definitely never forget. :)

There are a couple of other things that I'm working on right now so hopefully I'll be back soon to share those with you. Thanks so much for stopping by tonight!!
