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.

6 Years Ago Today...

I had acupuncture to help get things going (even though contractions had started earlier that morning...I didn't want things to stop - I was READY!)

I was walking around the neighborhood with my incredibly supportive husband in seriously HOT weather trying to keep things going.  I even resorted to the treadmill in our basement when it got too hot outside - seriously, my husband video taped it (not a pretty sight, let me tell you)

I was hurriedly walked from my OB's office to the labor and delivery wing of the attached hospital because things were GOING so fast they decided to not bother monitoring my labor in their office but to get me checked into my room ASAP.

With the help of my amazing husband, we welcomed our youngest son into the world and were incredibly blessed by this little boy.

Now he's not so little and he's turning SIX today.  He still blesses us every day with his sweet smile, silly antics and his snuggles.
