Challenge #3


CHALLENGE #3 Details: In honor of July 7, 07, you will create a layout entitled, "Seven Things I Am Lucky to Have". You can add to the Title, but that must be the basic title for your layout. Your layout can be one or 2 pages, but it must be 8 1/2 x 11 or 12x12.Your layout must also include the following:7 photos7 buttons7 journaling stripsYou may use any other embellies, papers, etc...



Putting this seven photo layout together was like working a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle! Ha ha!
I used the Everyday Tango by My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I like to use the word "blessed" instead of "lucky" so I titled my layout "My 7 Blessings". I used my Cricut to cut out my title and the scallop on my paper.
These are seven things I could not live without:
1. My hopes and dreams- this is a picture of the land where we will soon build our dream home.
2. A Christian husband
3. Three healthy sons
4. Devoted parents- They adopted me. I thank God for them for giving me a loving home and a happy childhood.
5. My health- How do you take a picture of your health? The best I could do was make a heart shape with my hands and lay it over my heart to symbolize my health.
6. My citizenship- I was born in a foreign country. I do not take for granted one single day of living on American soil.
7. My Faith- I took a picture of the church steeple to represent my relationship with Jesus. He is my world, my everything. Without Him, I would cease to exist.
Thanks for looking. I'm relieved to have this completed!

I went back to the TSS and looked at our layouts again...WOW is all I can say. They are two different layouts totally, but yet they are so similar aren't they. I love how you did your title though! It was so hard for me to limit my blessings to 7 things, I'm so thankful for SO MUCH more!

Did you notice the pattern papers I used Theresa?! hee hee hee! They were in my SS box you sent me ;0)...I LOVE THEM!
