My Sunshine

I really like “My Sunshine”, the April Stamp of the Month (SOM).  Because it coordinates with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, it makes creating that much more fun and did I mention, easier?!?!

Here’s some more art work:

Happy Easter!

I’ve just learned about listicles.  A list of 10 things….the topic can be anything and everything!  It’s been to read and learn about them.  So in the light that it’s Easter today, I made my very first listicle about why I’m grateful about Easter!

1) Grateful to be able to have the joy of watching my daughter on Easter
2) Grateful to be spending Easter with family members
3) Grateful to still be able to take a hike on the nature preserve outside my grandmother’s old home
4) Grateful to watch eagles fly
5) Grateful to be able to walk with my husband hand in hand
6) Grateful for the opportunity to help out my family in a time of need
7) Grateful for the being with people I love and who love me
8) Grateful for the provisions we have in our life
9) Grateful for an incredible meal that I did not have to cook
10) Grateful that I have the gift of Salvation through Jesus!

I created this layout with the April Stamp of the Month: S1304 My Sunshine and our wonderful Chantilly Papers!  It’s bright and happy which is how I feel today!
