My project is ...

For my project today, I decided to make a frame with a recent photo of my two youngest children, I took this picture when we went to our favorite park that we enjoy visiting. This picture has a story behind it, you know how when kids get certain ages they just don't like to be around their siblings, so I bribed them and told them if they would give me a good picture that I would take them out for french fries (it worked)! I am thankful for all my children and for the blessings that the Lord has blessed my life with.


Two of my blessings Whitney 15 and Zachary 12

For my Blog Candy
I will be giving away a $5 Grab Bag
All I ask is that you leave me a comment and follow me here on my blog.

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog, leave a comment and then become a follower of every participant in this hop. You also MUST visit my blog and leave a comment on my blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and my facebook page:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Scrapping-with-Lisa/130882060268842.  Please let me know if you don't do facebook and I won't count that against you for the blog candy.  Now for the blog candy, I bet you are wondering what it could be.   It will be a grab bag full of goodies.

Your next stop is  Amber's
Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project.
