Lucky Me! *Upsy Daisy Designs*

Happy Friday everyone. Today my goal is to go do some window shopping at the mall before the rain/snow falls. For some strange reason, I'm dying to shop! I guess it's because I'm feeling good at my running/yoga routine that I think....I think ....there's some results that I can celebrate with. I'll let you know how that goes.

Anyways today I want to share a layout I made for Upsy Daisy Designs. We were given free reign on products/paper line this month for our assignments and since it's March where we celebrate St. Patrick's day, I decided to play on the "lucky" theme and here's what I cam up with....

Lucky Me!

These photos are of me and hubby last Easter. I decided to use these phtoos because of the green in my outfit. Mitch doesn't like the photos that much because of how he looks when he kissed me on the cheeks but I still like them and smiled when he commented about them. He asked me if I'm going to be posting these photos in my blog and I said yes. After that he just shook his head. Hehehehehe.

Anyways, I used a bunch of green colored items here to emphasize the theme. I used papers from the Home Sweet Home, Vogue and A walk in the park lines.

I hand cut flowers from the Vogue line to create my own floral embellishments. I added some brads in their centers for a finished look.

The journaling was inspired by the quote strip that I added here. It says "life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain....". I love how it has given me the springboard to talk about how lucky I feel to have a husband to strong and courageous and how he helps me be strong amid the challenges as well. I journaled about the struggles we went through before moving here in Colorado. If you've followed my blog for sometime, you'd know that it we were separated for about four months because he had to start his job here while I and the kids waited for our home in California to finally close. It was definitely one of the hardest things I had to go through and I'm so grateful for a supportive and strong in faith husband.

So that's it. Make sure you check out the UDD products here.

Oh and before I go, I wanna say thanks for all the congratulatory comments about my Clear Scraps DT announcement. I have truly been in cloud 9 since then.

Have a good weekend.

Till next time,
