I'm pregnant, and although I'm only 9 weeks along, it's been a bumpy road.  I've definitely had my faith stretched and pulled plenty in these past weeks as I've been on a roller coaster full of ups and downs of positive and negative news!  Some friends have given me some great advice about living in the day and simply appreciating each moment of this pregnancy.  While others are hating the whole morning sickness and dreading all of the other symptoms, I've come to be thankful for them as it's a continual reminder that today, I am pregnant!

Be Transformed LO

I just love art journaling!  Only thing is I'm terrible at it and really have no idea where to start!  Anyways I was challenged to use some skyline brushes which let me to my attempt at art journaling.  I'm pretty happy with the results but most of all love how my word art of Romans 12:2 turned out!

Lucky Day LO

For Christmas I got a new camera!  I've been drooling over it for the longest time and finally we found a smokin' hot deal on it and there you go, I've got a new camera in my hands.  Only problem is that there is a huge learning curve.  I was already messing with the manual functions on my ancient camera so it's not like it's completely foreign.

So, anyways, I've been hesitant to take my camera out into the freezing cold of Alaska especially since I still don't have a camera case!  On this day it was sunny and "warm" so we decided to go play in the snow!  My only problem was figuring out the settings for my dslr!!  I ended up getting a few photos that I loved but a lot of them turned out way over exposed from all of the snow.

When I saw this template I couldn't help but think of the photos I took that day and I just love how all the bright white of the snow actually works in this layout!!  My not so snazzy photo was saved!!

Lucky Me LO

It is now March!!  March has a special meaning for me now as that's the month my amazing son was born on!  My little guy is going to be two years old and I just can't believe it!!  When I saw JoyLynn's new kit "Lucky Me", I began scrolling through pictures of my son (usually how I get inspired for a layout) and I found these adorable pictures that I had taken of him when he was just a couple weeks old!!  I knew as soon as I saw them that I had to use them with this sweet kit!

Lucky In Love LO

Here's another fun St. Patty's Day kit collection - this time from ViolaMoni!  I love the Buffets over at Ginger Scraps and how I can mix and match kits that have the same theme and color scheme (and are super cheap)!  These papers from ViolaMoni would be great paired up with some awesome patterned papers too!
