Pile It On #26 My Favorites.

This was a fun one for me this week! For starts, Gabi is my very favorite little girl in the world! I can't express how proud, happy, blessed, and in love I am with this little girl. She's my first born. My blue eyed beauty! I wanted a girl so badly when I was pregnant with her, and we didn't know what we were having. God gave me more than I could hope for in her! But not only is this my favorite girl, I get to show her off with my favorite hobby!
Scrapping is a passion of mine. I love being able to show my kids their childhood. I'm adopted, and there aren't photos of me under the age of the 5. So, having their childhood laid out for them in pictures is one of my favorite things to do for them. I love to sit down and play with papers and their photos.

We had a wonderful sponsor this week, Queen Scraps, who sent us a lovely scrapbook kit. I loved my kit, which was the Making Memories Flutter Kit. It came with lovely papers, die cut flowers, a bunch of cut out letters, double sided ribbon, stickers, felt flower and leaves, buttons. And even had layout idea, with complete cutting instructions. I didn't use her sketch, because I had more photos to add to my page. I hope she'll be pleased with how I showed cased her kit. I also made two cards using scraps from the papers I cut for the scrapbook page. You can view those cards HERE and HERE.

Here's my challenges for my page.
ABC X-Xtra Dimension.
Nutshells #19 Summer Time Fun.
Kah-Wink-E-Dink Smoothies.
Crafy Cardmakers #24, Inky Fingers.
Crazy Challenge Make It In A Hour

Scrap It With a Song I can see clearly now...Gabi is my little cup of sunshine who gives me clear skies!

Hello Anna, you have a beautiful daughter and she don't half look like you!! Enjoyed reading your post, it was quite touching and what better way to capture the memories rather than having a file full of pics that you forget in later years where it taken or why you were there!! What a lovely treasure too that could be handed down to next generations.

A lovely layout, thankyou so much for sharing and for joining us this week at the Secret Crafter, I hope you come back and see us again next week. Good luck in the draw.
