About Me...

Okay...this page has been a really long time coming. I usually hate every photo taken of me, with the exception of this one...I knew when my daughter took this one that I wanted it to be for this special page...Then I had to find just the right supplies. I was blessed with a blog candy win from Jen Glover's Blog which led to my purchase from her store Coconut Scrapshop. The kit of the month for April, was perfect for my little project. Thanks so much Jen. I'd love to present God's Child to you.

The Journaling reads...Psalms 139:13-14. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
