A Little Peek

Happy Monday to everyone…it is holiday time in my part of the world so we are resting, relaxing, and scrapping! I have had so much fun playing around with THE DIGI FILES 7 this month! I just love working different designers stuff, trying new things, stretching myself. I hope you have enjoyed this collection as much as I have. We have shown you quite a bit and we still have three more SPONSOR SPOTLIGHTS to show you. If you haven’t already seen what’s inside…you’re gonna love it! We won’t be doing a Sponsor Spotlight on the stuff I created (you already know me!) or what Steph2 created (we already did a Sponsor Spotlight on them!) However, I DO want you to get a peek at what we made. First up are Steph2’s awesome SENTIMENTS collection 3.

I just love the way word art inspires me. Sometimes I get stuck and don’t have an idea for a layout…but word art gives me a starting point and I LOVE that. I usually end up creating layouts that I wouldn’t have otherwise done! This pack and the little phrase, “The Best is Yet to Come” inspired me to create a layout for my daughter that has been brewing in my heart for a while.

Journaling (because some readers have mentioned wanting to be able to read journaling): The past was amazing…the present is unbelievable…and I know the best is yet to come. That’s how life is with you sweet girl. At just three months, I was sure I was the luckiest woman in the world with the most wonderful baby in the world. You were smiley, happy, even tempered, sweet, loving, and full of wonder. I didn’t know how it would be possible to love you any more than I did at that moment. And then you grew…in height and in heart. And that sweet nature kept growing with it. Now, at six years old, you are the most amazing little girl I could ever dream of. You are smart, creative, kind, sensitive, helpful, repentant, loving, forgiving, understanding, other-focused and Christlike. I didn’t know so much could be part of one little heart. And so, I know that as much as I love you now, I know the best is yet to come. I know that the heart that is within you will continue to grow and change as you become the woman that God created you to be. And I can’t wait to see who that is and what He has in store for you. You were created for something amazing — of that I am sure. I feel like I know a little of what Mary felt like to be the mother of Jesus…awed, humbled, and totally excited to see what great things are in store.

And here is a peek at the templates in THE DIGI FILES 7:

And here is another layout using one of these templates and totally inspired by the Sentiments. I definitely feel like my PHOTO A DAY project has helped me celebrate the everyday…every day. I LOVE that!
