SEM - A New Chapter Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  Hope you are enjoying the hop and getting to know the new design team!!!!  I really like the theme of this blog hop but like with many of the challenges at SEM  I start thinking so deep and trying to come up with a really meaningful moving project.  But then it just hit me like a ton of bricks... these every day miracles dont have to be serious or move mountains that is not what they are really about... it is the little things, the fun things that make you smile, that bright ray of sun light.  I realize I dont have to search hard to find these moments...  

So then I started thinking about the challenge again and realized I was looking for some big new chapter in my life but truly isnt each new day a new chapter or every time I meet a new friend or when my daughter learns something new?  Life is always changing no matter what!  Suddenly the challenge that seemed to think sound so hard became easy, fun and all kinds of moments and experiences started coming to mind!  I just became so aware of all the new chapters that God had and was giving to  me in my life and my family!



Here is a layout that I created from one of our visits to Disneyland where my daughter and niece posed with Minnie. I love Disneyland and as a kid looked forward to going each year with my family.... when I was in college I was so blessed to have a annual pass along with many of my friends that we used to go sometimes a couple times during the week.  The excitement of being there never wears off!  Each time I walk in I am just filled with excitement.  Now that I have my own family  I get to give my daughter that gift of excitement of being at this special place... it is now her turn to see her dreams come true as she meets Mickey, Minnie and all her favorite princesses.  It is a new Disney chapter and one that I feel so blessed to be able to share with her and my nieces!
So now you have a chance to create your own New Chapter project just make sure you link it up on SEM by October 5th, 11:59 PDT!

Of course we have prizes...
