I don't know about you, but there are times that I find that I really need to refocus. And so, I need to apologize to any of you who check my blog from time to time looking for a blog update. My focus has been elsewhere lately.
We have started a new sermon series at church, called Not a Fan. It has really got me thinking about what I am making the priorities in my life. Our pastor is fabulous and I recommend you give it a listen. Anyway, it was perfect timing considering that my sister decided to come for a visit. She spent last week with us and it was a great time for the two of us to spend some time together. She is 5 years younger than me (which makes her 24-hahahaha). There was enough of an age difference that growing up we weren't super close. Don't get me wrong, we always got along fine but we didn't have a ton in common. As I get older, those years do not make as much of a difference. It was a very good visit.
We took her to a big local festival here in town and she got to see K play soccer and L practice gymnastics. Before she left on Thursday she even went with me on my route to deliver groceries to my seniors for the SeniorPak program. I am so glad she was able to find some time to come visit.
Even though I have refocused my priorities, scrapbooking is still a big part of who I am and what I love to do. This last week Challenge Me Happy posted a new challenge. The challenge is to create a layout using an embellishment or embellishment that you created. The perfect challenge for me because I love embellishments! :) So after deciding to use the goofy pictures of my girls for the layout I decided to create arrows and a mustache as some of the embellishments for my layout. Arrows are a great create-your-own embellishment. If you are not comfortable creating your own, simply open a word document and create some arrows there. Print them onto your paper and cut them out. It is that easy. Here is my layout.
