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.

Keep on keeping on...

I'm truly dumbfounded at how insanely busy summertime can be.  Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the busy-ness of it and all the fun things we're getting out and doing but seriously, it's already the 2nd week of July.  The kids will be back in school in roughly a month's time...that's right, I said ONE month!  I better get going on all those places we wanted to visit or I'm going to run out of time.

The boys and I spent the other morning touring the Hammond's Candy Factory.  It was so interesting to see how they make all that yummy candy and I was blown away by the fact that they still make the majority of it by hand. 

We spent the prior weekend camping in the Crested Butte area - beautiful, I tell you!  Despite the LONG drive to get there, the western slope of Colorado sure is pretty.   We have lots more camping scheduled, lots more baseball games to attend (their season will be over at the end of this month), and lots more adventures to have.  In and amongst all this, I have managed a wee bit of crafting...

Here's a masculine themed birthday card I made recently...

And I'm anxiously awaiting my first set of Ali Edwards stamps...I've been looking at these for quite some time and I finally decided to join Studio AE for 6 months and see how it goes.  Now if they would just hurry up and get here already! 

Until next time...enjoy the sunshine.
Pin It!
