Hip HOP!

Happy Hip Hop!

I usesd two of my favorite sets this week. First up from me a blast from the past. I used Gratitude = Joy for this one.

There is so much in my life to be grateful for. I am truly so very blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. One of the best gifts in my life...my children. I have three wonderful boys that I feel so blessed to mother. They are wonderful. Here's a picture I took a few days ago while they were goofing off in the kitchen.

Some of you know that I am a cancer survivor. I was actually diagnosed when my older two boys were only 3 and 1. At that moment in time all I could think about was being there when my oldest started kindergarten. I wanted so very much to survive at least that long. Now here we are (nearly 6 years later!) with one more kiddo and I have watched two of them start kindergarten...preschool....football championships....skinned knees....first bike rides. There are so many moments that I am so truly blessed to have been there for. Being a mom is such a great gift. I love my boys and am so lucky to be here to enjoy this time with them.

....ok...back to stamping! ;)

Next up, a layout. This one uses the new Birdie Inspiration. I LOVE this kit! The sentiments are amazing and the images are just adorable!

That's it for me. Now head on over to see what ***Jen Erickson*** has in store for you. I will catch you all in the forum.

Post you soon! :)
