I'm So Lucky........Blog Hop

Jen over at Honeybean Creations  decided to do this awesome Blog Hop with the theme 'I'm So Lucky....."
Our inspiration to you is to create two projects showcasing a blessing in our lives. Our hop will go from midnight 3/17 to midnight 3/20. The hop is also a challenge for a prize. In order to enter the challenge, you must leave a comment on each blog stop 'and' enter a creation in the challenge on Jen's blog. Now if you got here from Cheryl-Pink and Paper then you are in the right place. Can we say WOW!! What awesome creations!!! If you just happen to visit me and want to do this awesome hop, just start at Jen's here For my first project, I made a card. The Blessing that my card represents is the 'Love' that my DH and I share. We have been married for 38 years. Now, I'm not going to say they were all wonderful, we have had our trials and hardships, but since we are still together, I think that speaks volumes!! I wouldn't trade him for another for no amount of money!!! For my card I used the Sweethearts Cartridge to cut the couple and the sentiment. The heart paper is from my stash. My card isn't fancy, just represents our love for each other.

Now, for my second project, I did a double layout. Now I don't usually do double ones. And I really wasn't
going to this time either, but once I got the right side page done, I just thought I needed to do the left side page. My layouts represents the Blessing and how Lucky were are to own our home. We rented for the first eleven years of our marriage before we were able to buy our home. It was the perfect size when we bought it. Our children were young. Then as they grew, it seemed to shrink. Then when they moved out, it is now the perfect size for just us two!!  I used ZooBalloo to cut the house, tree and grass. The clouds were cut from Hello Kitty Greetings. The sentiment 'home', the flowerpost journal card, flower circle, flower sentiment and home sentiment are stickers. The flower pot, top and bottom borders are cutouts. These are from Bella Blvd-Honey I'm Home- sticker sheet and cut out sheet. There was no place that I wanted to put photos on the right side page so I need the left side page to put photos on. When I decide which ones from
the huge stack that I have from when we first bought our home, I will add them to my layout.
God has blessed us so very much. Not just our love and home, but our two wonderful children and now our nine awesome Grands. He just continues to bless us in amazing ways. We are two of the richest people in the world!!

Awww. Very sweet. I really like the card. Isn't Sweethearts the best cartridge? I just got it recently and have found so many uses for it! BTW, I'd be happy to take that blog cany off your hands! Zig glue pens are the BEST!
