Thanks for visiting my blog. I began journaling about my daily life when I was eleven. Over the years, this has grown to become a way for me to share my thoughts rather than my daily life. I’m pretty open with sharing all the beautiful chaos of life with six children. I have to remind myself to extend grace to myself each and every day! It is my hope that my writings will help others to learn to extend grace to themselves too. After all, if it weren’t for the Grace of God, life would just be messy. I’m so glad that life can instead be a Beautiful Mess and is covered by His Beautiful Grace.

Another layout from Challenge #1
In this layout I used chalk to color the stamped images. This is very easy to do with eye shadow applicators, available at any drug store/discount store in the cosmetics department. The grass at the bottom is a 1 inch strip of card stock that I used scissors to cut tiny slits in it. Once I had the slits cut, I ran ink across it to give it a bit of dimension. I then folded a bit of it out and ran a strip of Tombo adhesive along the bottom of my back ground paper to adhere the grass.
