My Productive Weekend

A Scrap Happy Day

This is a scrapbook page I completed on Saturday, National Scrapbook Day. It shows my husband and his dad when the used to go hunting together. His dad passed away several years ago so this really meant a lot to him. They had hunting dogs that favor the dogs on the patterned paper which is what drew me to this paper, their favorite was named Kate. Below is a close up of the quote.

God's Grace

On Sunday morning I woke up early and went to make coffee. As I stood at the kitchen window and looked out I was instantly reminded of God's grace and beauty. Right out my back door I could see his handy work as I stood watching and listening. The beautiful choir of the birds singing and the harmony of all creatures being together without conflict was like having Church at my kitchen window. I hope you enjoy these photos from my window................
