I've decided to participate in Krystal's Link Up Love Party over at Getting Cricky with K Andrew. I'm excited to see how it goes. The idea is to become a follower of different blogs, have others become your follower and this way everyone can get inspiration and motivation from one another. I think it's a great idea for us newbies!! One of the things that Krystal asks us to do is post a favorite project and something we are grateful for ~ this is my project:
and the thing I'm most grateful for is the fact that my oldest daughter finished high school. It was touch and go for a while. Her high school years were very difficult ones. She dealt with issues that were beyond our control, that no one should ever have to deal with but through it all, she stayed true to going to school. Ring day is the day that Seniors get their rings and it includes a number of activities including a Mass to bless the Seniors and their future as they leave High School. As the day's events unfolded and I went around taking pictures, I knew immediately how my layout was going to look. It's also the first double layout I completed.
I used my baby bug, Mickey and Friends, A child's Year and George and Basic Shapes carts. I could probably do it over and make it look cleaner but it wouldn't be the same. A lot of love went into this one.
I'm so proud of her, for being a survivor and not a victim...She's my hero!
Below you'll find the instructions for the Link Up Love Party ~ I hope you join the fun! I'm off now to finish becoming a follower and leaving comments!
Link Up Love Party: How it Works
*Link Up Party runs from Tuesday 6/21 to Tuesday 6/28. Winners announced 6/29
*Grab my blinkie and post on your blog's sidebar
*Be a follower of this blog
*Create a new blog post that is titled Link Up Love Party with K Andrew. In your post, you must mention that the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, mention my blog, with a link back to my blog .
*Post your favorite project that you've done in your blog post WITH ONE thing you are grateful for!
*Copy and paste the link up code into your blog post so the Inlinkz will show up on your blog
*Spread the word so everyone can join in!
*You must visit, follow, and comment on the 5 people before you AND the 5 people after you in the Inlinkz. It would be fantastic if you would visit as many as you can--maybe everyone? If you are one of the first 5 then you will need to blog the ones before you and a few more after--as long as it's a minimum of 10 near you in the link up tool/gadget)
If you do not do the above your link will be deleted, because it's just not fair to those who work so hard linking up and showing love to the ones on the list. Krystal has two moderators who will be checking this out to keep it awesome and fun!
