AHOY, MATEY! Paper Playtime Challenge # 5
HELLO!!! I'm so happy to be home, in my new craft room (drywall - no paint yet; subfloor - no flooring yet), got my desk and computer with printer set up; got my craft table set up with the Cricut.... life is GOOD!
Here is my first craft project since we've moved. It feels so good to do a scrapbook page. I haven't done any scrapbooking in way too long.
I'll handwrite info on the page before adding it to my scrapbook. This is a picture of my parents holding my first grandchild and their first great-grandchild. I know he's a boy baby, but these flowers were so pretty that PAM sent me in an ARK (Act of Random Kindness - I know most people say RAK, but I like ARK better because it reminds me of Noah and the Ark and how God saved him and his family with it. And isn't that what ARKs do for us - save us sometimes - give us a little love in the mail - a little boost in our spirit?).
