Serenity :):):):):):)

Hi all.....

Today the latest challenge went live on The Studio...and this time we want to see a layout of a place that is special to you! :):):):):):) I chose the Catholic church that is built into the mountain in Sedona, Arizona! :):):):):):):) I personally don't practice this religion, but when I go there, I feel at peace :):):):):):):)

I made this using Crate Paper's new line "Portrait" that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :):):):):):):):):)




I learned this FUN little circle trick from the fabulous Lisa Andrews! :):):):):):):):):):)






And I made a card for a friends baby using Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe that I also got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :):):):):):):):):):)

And tonight, the grandparents and Brookie painted Easter decorations together... :)





And here is their end results :)






Ohhhhhhhh and then we had cake... ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh did we HAVE CAKE! lol :)




Thanks sooooo much for stopping by.... I appreciate it! :):):):):):):)

  22. Hi Julie!
    I've visted that church before, on our trip to check out the Grand Canyon. It is beautiful!
    So is your layout! Love all the colors smack dab in the middle of the neutral bg and the pop-up circles! I've seen those circles on Lisa's layout too and I also want to "borrow" that
    idea! Love those pics of Brookie wearing, I mean, eating the cake! LOL!
    BTW she seems to be looking more and more like you everyday; beautiful! Take care! :0)
