love these girls; playing with paint and mist

**Please check post below for your chance to win a spot in the upcoming PageMapsU Card class! 

I will be participating along with many of your favorite cardmakers. Here is a peek of one of my cards:

It's another day, another chance to make it a better one than the day before.

I had a rough mom night with some of my kids last night...they were being difficult and I gave in and lost my cool. I had to ask for their forgiveness. It is a good thing they are so forgiving. I am trying to be better.

Have you ever been there before?

I do love my girls; they are sweet and creative and smart and amaze me all the time.

Here is a page that I created yesterday in about 15 minutes using product I had right on my desktop; white cardstock background (American Crafts cardstock is my fave), a tag from Bella Blvd, a vellum cut by the talented Jennifer Chapin, mist from Heidi Swapp, wood veneer shapes that I cut using wood paper from ARC Crafts, tape from Queen & Co, American Crafts glitter Thickers, some craft paint and a Studio Calico acetate word.

The pictures of my girls are from Sarah's birthday; I wanted to get some pictures of her before we left for church and Lily did not want to be left out of the action. ♥

The tapes are from Queen & Co's new release; I worked on some CHA projects for Wendy and was able to snag some tape from my sister-in-law who was here visiting and also working on Q&Co projects.

That little yellow tag is from one of Bella Blvd's brand new releases- so cute! I tucked a heart underneath and added a few wood veneer stars punched from the ARC bark paper.

Have a fantastic day!

We're all human. Anyone who claims they have never lost their cool is lying. Go give them one more extra hug and forget about it. Great layout!!

We've all been there, you would not believe the day I had with my new 5 month old daycare baby yesterday. Let's just say there was a whole lot of crying. Thank goodness my littlest was really good. This is a beautiful layout.

Yes! The half hour after my older 2 kids get home from school is the hardest part of my day. I read something a while back about how kids are most deserving of grace. It really made an impression on me. So, when I'm having those hard moments and my control starts to slip, I try to think "grace, grace, grace". It usually helps, at least a little.
