Exciting News! FAITH

I have two posts today, so if you're here for the IO Sneak Peeks  Scroll down one!

I'm VERY Excited to share that I am the new Hostess of the Scrapbooking Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers! Every two weeks, I hope to bring some Inspiration to you for completing some fun and  interesting layouts! I was inspired by Ali Edwards Post on Instagram : One Little Word. She also has complied a list of words on her Blog. So Inspirational

After pondering and pondering, I decided that my word for this year would be Faith
Then I had to decide how to photograph my word

I received these absolutely BEAUTIFUL Gerbera Daisies from Paul on Christmas Eve. Actually they have lasted wonderfully and I've decided to try to dry them.
I wanted to capture their Beauty and then it dawned on me that they would make a perfect backdrop for my word........just had to find some letters to spell it out. I tried some Scrabble Tile, but they didn't look very pretty on the flower, so I dug deep into my Scrapbooking Stash and found these.

Then I couldn't resist laying the Beautiful Necklace that I received from Paul over the flowers

A couple more shots and angles of my word

This one I faded out a bit

My Journalling card is tucked away in the little envelope

Having Faith that things will work out as they should
Having Faith in the ones that I love
But more than anything......
Having Faith in myself
