Creative Challenge!

So it is a new year and then some already. I have missed my crafting time! I really need to do more crafts. The creative process has helped me so much in the past whenever I needed a little ME time or Therapy as I call it. I just celebrated another birthday and althought I don't feel a day or year older than a month ago, I still see that I am putting myself last again on my priority list as I reflect on the past year. So I want to set a new goal for myself. I NEED my craft/Me Time! So I am going to make myself a sticky note and do my best to complete ONE project a week. Be it a card or a layout or a home decor item or something using my craft supplies that are sitting in my corner of my basement living room.

Here is my first project, a layout, long overdue of my precious little miracle girl who is turning three next month. This photo is of her on her first Sunday all dressed up in her first dress ready to go out into public for the first time and attend church with us as a family. (sorry, lighting is bad, so need a new camera, should have asked for it as a birthday present... oh well..)

 A closer look at the definitions Precious and Miracle

I used a Creative Challenge from Susan K. Weckessar as my inspiration for my layout.  

Susan gave us this picture to use as inspiration in any way for our creative projects for the month of February.

I used the overall picture Susan gave as a template for my layout design overall, the title blocks copied in my title, the colors of red, pink, blue, green and cream behind the letters were in my title too and the background paper, and the floral theme in some buttons, brads, silk flower and the background patterned paper.

Thanks Susan for being an inspiration in my creative attempts!

One week done in my new goal... :o)
