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.

Happy Birthday my Wonderful Son!

In honor of Andrew's 16th (oh my gosh how is that possible?) birthday, I thought I'd share this layout that I recently completed using the Basic Grey Oliver kit available over at the Queen Scraps store.  The Oliver line was perfect for working on this project with it's greys, blues and reds.  Love it! 

So yeah, my oldest is turning 16 today and although parenting a teen has not been easy by any stretch of the imagination, I think we've finally turned a corner.  We truly do enjoy him.  He's talented and funny and all around just a fantastic young man.  We're proud to be his parents that is for sure.  Soon, he'll be driving - YIKES - he recently started his first job and is kicking butt in school.  What more could we ask for???  I think God richly blessed our lives when he was born.  Happy birthday son!
Pin It!
