Most Incredible Man and Speed Scrap
Have I mentioned lately that I'm married to the most incredible man in the universe? Now, I know that many of you will argue with me, but he's really the most incredible man FOR ME! Today, I made lunch early and we got most of our schoolwork done, because I wanted to participate in the Speed Scrap at Scrapmatters. We had a lunch of yummy totally from scratch chili with beans. After lunch we were able to have a great Biblical and theological discussion with our big kids, which was absolutely wonderful. We even got to practice our verses of James 1:1-11 with Dad. Then the big kids cleaned up while I nursed Aiden. Big P put the little boys to bed and then we had about 30 minutes to sit and talk, with just the two of us! He helped me get ready for the speed scrap, because he knew it was important to me!!! I just love that about him!
And the speed scrap, which was my first by the way, was soooo much fun! You are giving 7 instruction 10 minutes apart. Then after the last instruction is given, you have 1 hour to complete your layout. Your are to be working on gathering your things as the instructions are given. Today's instructions were to pick a piece of paper using 1 color from your country's flag to commemorate 9/11. You could only use 1 photo, but had to use it twice on your layout. You had to use 4 flowers, frames on each photo, fasteners (I used the tape), some bling (I used the glittle swirly and the beads), and have wordart, but no journaling. It was a fast paced race, because you were trying to anticipate where she was going with the layout. Above us what I came up with and I'm so excited about how it turned out. It was a challenge and took me outside my box.
And it happens to feature my #1 fan and THE MOST INCREDIBLE MAN IN THE WORLD!
The wordart reads: Having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
