Top 3!

Oh my goodness! For the second time I have made the "Top 3" at Digi Haven! I am so surprised! I feel very honored as there are SO MANY talented crafters out there! Although I am getting more comfortable with entering my creations in card challenges I still feel very much like a "rookie"! There is something very deep and personal about sharing your own creativity. There is still just a twinge of insecurity in me that wonders if anyone will like what I do! Silly, I know, but its the truth. I'm still letting Father God work on that one!

Here's a layout that I did this afternoon. These are some pics of my granddaughter Kennedy when she was 7 months old. Yep...I still haven't scrapbooked all the pics I have. I've done some along the way so I'm not totally behind. Since she is my first I kinda went overboard taking pics. I took pictures almost everyday of her first year! I'm getting better about being more selective of the pics I take.

Cathy asked me to make some pages to put up in the store showcasing the new paper. This is Authentique's "Baby Girl" collection. I just love this because the papers are very versatile and can be used for any layout. There are some "baby" specific stickers but the paper is generic. The letters I used for the title came with this collection. At the bottom of the layout is a quote which reads "She is my joy and heart's delight" by Robert Weaver. This quote is on the strip that contains the bar code on each paper. Authentique does this on each collection. I think that is pretty cool! To help with my creativity I used this weeks sketch #332 from Sketch Inspiration.

Thanks for visiting! If you like what you see leave me a comment! Have a good one!


  1. Congrats for being in the top 3---you so deserve that! Wonderful layout! I love those quotes at the bottom of the Authentique papers...

  2. But of course you deserved the top 3 at Digi Haven! Your cards are wonderful so quit second guessing yourself. I know...easier said than done and I totally understand the feeling. This layout is adorable! It's a good thing you still have girl baby photos to scrap so you get to use this beautiful new paper!

  3. What a beautiful layout - I especially like how you've tied the ribbon on the right side.

    I agree, it's often hard to share our creativity, but I have found such support through my blog & online classes that the lovely comments have served to boost my desire to create!
