i'm so ThaNKFuL

Roxannee says, KAYA!

I am not really a fan of Valentine's Day but then, this month's topic is about expressing your feelings to your loved ones through a song and my latest favourite add on to a lay out is stitching! Ethan's sweetness, Ashton's kisses and Ron's cuddles just complete me as a person. I am truly blessed to have such affectionate, loving and caring boys in my life. Their LoVe is an everyday gift and for that I am so thankful. For the song I felt that Jim Brickman and Martina McBride's The Gift is just spot on.

but the colors fade away
and the years will make us grey
but baby in my eyes
you'll still be beautiful

all I want is to hold you forever
all I need is you more every day
you saved my heart
from being broken apart
you gave your love away
I can't find the words to say
that I'm thankful every day
for the gift

i can relate with your choices. hirap din ng lalake ang mga models noh? hihihi. i am challenging myself to use pink papers and flower embellies for a layout for son and hubby. {di kaya ako manose bleed, hihihi}

Yes it's just the cap of a pentel pen...dabbed it in paint and that's it! I tend to play around with things these days...I have also tried painting on bubble wrap then stamped it on paper.
