My Faith

This week, we had to scrap about what we believe about God.

It was a difficult challenge for me, because I have learned a lot over the last few years. I decided to keep it simple this time. I am keeping a faith journal that I plan to pass on to my boys as they grow older.

The journaling reads:

My faith in God has been with me for as long as I can remember. In the last few years, it has become more real to me as I develop a more intimate walk with my Savior. I am learning that despite my failures, Jesus loves me and wants to have a relationship with me. And more importantly, He wants me to share what I’ve discovered with others. I pray that my life is a living testimony to those around me, especially my children.

My Treasures

This week, I had to scrap about my treasures, other than pictures and scrapbooks. I chose my baby books. Mark's mom gave us the Precious Moments album. She gave it as a gift for Riley, but since we had already started one, I saved it. It became Tyler's book when we found out we were having him. It is a way to connect her to Tyler, so it is special. She loved Precious Moments.

The other is the plaque my dad made for us when we got married. Our parents gave it to us at our rehearsal dinner. It is special to me because I remember how proud my parents were to launch us from their quivers. I was also the first Beaman child to be launched.

The template was designed by Kim B and the kit is called Magical Harmony.

This is the Valentine card I sent to grandparents. I took the pictures myself and created the card. The kit was the Love Actually freebie kit posted by several wonderful designers!

I'm Still Here!

Man, it's been awhile since I've posted...

Our house has been sick over the last 2 weeks. Hopefully, this is the tail end of it!

I have joined 2 digital scrapping challenges. One starts soon and the other I've already done 2 layouts for. I am excited about that one, because it will be a scrapbook all about me! I've always wanted to do one--something I can have and my boys can have that tells who I am.This layout is about the things I love. I used a kit by Petit Moineaux called "douceur enivrante" and a template by jilljackscraps.

This layout is about who inspires me. These are our dear friends, Josh and Stefanie Kirbo who are serving as missionaries in Mexico. They have had a profound impact in our lives. The kit I used is "Sea Breeze" by Lena Gulbrandsen. The template is by Mrs. Wresh.

Hope you enjoy!
