Why Scraps of Grace you ask??? Primarily because it is through God's grace that I am able to do what I love...scrapbooking, cardmaking, basically anything that has beautiful paper and embellishments involved. This is also a place to share my work as well as whatever is on my heart. A creative outlet for the mind, body, and soul.
I encourage you to relax, read, and browse a while and I hope that your day will be brightened and blessed by what you encounter.
So the roof is done...it looks great and we all survived the pounding and rattling yesterday. Seriously my two youngest sons didn't even seem phased by it. How is that possible??? We did escape the house for a while for lunch and some galavanting at the park. When we were here, I had to keep myself busy to avoid thinking about how LOUD it all was. This layout is the result of my keeping busy. It's somewhat out of character for my layouts...I tend to be a 2-page layout kind of scrapper but lately I'm finding lots of joy in highlighting single photos. Special moments that evoke big memories for me. I love how all the colors in this are kind of funky. The paper pad I used from Die Cuts With a View is one that my son gave me for Christmas and almost all the papers are embossed or glittery...fun and funky, just like a teenager!
I am married to the love of my life and work part time in children's ministry at our church. We are happy to call Colorado our home.
I love crafting of any sort but am particularly drawn to paper crafting. I have been scrapbooking and paper crafting for 10 years. It has been such a fantastic outlet as well as a beautiful way to capture the amazing moments that happen in my life.
