Come one, come all

Well, today is the day. The house is officially on the market. I am nervous and excited and hopeful that it will sell fast. We have put so much work into it that I am really hoping for a pay-off but we will see.

Since we have been so busy I missed the start up of our new Bible Study at church. They are doing a study about Ester and I would have loved to do this one. I was afraid though that the time committment of this bible study would just add to the stress. I really am missing the reading though. So last night while DS and I were at the library I picked up a new Karen Kingsbury book. This one is called Divine and I am already loving it. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction. It is a story about a modern day Mary Magdalene. I am already about a fifth of the way through it and plan on snuggling up with my book for a little bit today too.
OK, so how about a new project? Yes, this one is actually new! I know, I know...it has been a while. LOL Well, actually the Fabulous one I posted the other day was new too but that is about it. I am hoping things will calm down enough that I can get some scrapping in between showings now that the house looks good. Anyway, I did this layout using a sketch by Janelle over at Magistical Memories. As soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I have so many pictures from Christmas that I haven't even touched and this was the perfect chance. So here is the sketch:




And here is what I did with it:
I hope that your weekend is wonderful and relaxing. See you Monday!

Congrats on completing your house project. I went through that...oh my, it has been a year ago already. It was sooooo much work. So I am feelin' your pain. LOL! I've been looking for a great book to read during my lunch hour. I think I'll take your suggestion. BTW, adorable layout! Hope all goes as you wish with the sale of the house!!!

Great layout! I always have a hard time with the blocked look...mine just always seem to be lacking something. I wish I could get into it more.

Also, speaking of Esther, have you seen that movie, "One night with the King?" It is really good. It is based on the book of Esther and goes along with it, with a lot of quotes taken straight from it, but it is romanticized a bit. It's a great movie though, I loved it.
