Trust in the Lord with all your heart!!! It has certainly been a time of trusting.  Being a caregiver of a parent certainly cultivates trust in God!!!  The Lord has been faithful! He has strengthen me and been with me, especially when I felt alone. Thank you, Lord for your loving presence in my life.

Now I would like to share one of my favorite layouts (scrapbooking keeps me busy, during the long hours with mom.)  This layout was inspired by a challenge at Let's Scrap.

Design Team  Challenge 172- Flowers/ Plants/Trees Overload.
   I had so much fun doing this page. I was especially imspired by Michelle Looi's example. I used a old sheet of K&Company paper by Brenda Walton as my background. I cut out a tree overlay from my new cricut cartridge Artbooking. I ended up not using the overlay, instead I used it as a stencil(tree) Using the overlay I sprayed my page with gold mist, then used gelatos for the leaves and trunk. I outlined my leaves in gold, it didn't show up enough so I used a metallic copper pen to define the leaves better, I discovered that if you rub the marker lines right away they blend a little. i not sure I like the title. I also think I will use gesso for a base coat next time. The paper started to peel a little. Love this picture of my granddaughter she is finally starting to smile for pictures.

I have been enjoying using the Artbooking cart from Close to My Heart. Hope to post lots of Halloween layouts using this cart.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart!
