Another layout....

So I created this layout for two different challenges.... First I found the most amazing site... it called The Paper Treehouse.... the is basically a ministry for a lady named Nana.... Everything is centered around God and what He is doing in our lives.  I love scrapbooking and since God wants to be part of all we do I love the encouragement to show my relationship with Him through scrapbooking.  There are challenges every week as well as local classes that are held.  She also has a kit club and other fun stuff.  It really is worth checking out!!!!
The challenge that this layout was created for was to think about God and who He is in your life.  I know that God is always there and sees the full picture.... I gotta live by faith and trust that He has his reasons.  I may never know why something happens the way it does but as long as I am following Him I know that he has a plan. The picture was taken the first day Lars worked at New Mexico Airlines.  He loved that job but was forced to quit after only 3 months when the management were doing immoral and cruel things to their staff. At the time it was hard to understand why God was leading us away from that job and back to flying cargo but He had his reasons.

Second the Hippity Hop Blog hop is going on this weekend.... Basically it is a hop featuring some of the best challenge blogs out there....You start at Sassy Little Sketches and hop your way from there.... Each stop will give you another element that you need to add into your layout.  In the end you have to use a sketch, lace, mist/paint/ink, texture, and three of the same thing.  I used mist on the layout... my texture is at the bottom where I used flocking over the hearts..... the three of the same thing is the rub on dots on the picture....and of course there is a little lace under the picture.  

I included an upclose picture of the flowers so that hopefully you can see that the flowers have some dimension to them.... thanks for looking and have a great day!
