These are the Moments

Chiqui says KAYA!

I was listening to my cousin’s playlist one night when I heard this song, “I could not ask for more.” It’s written by Diane Warren, sung by Edwin McCain, and revived locally by Nina. The lyrics are just perfect! You can hear the song here.

Journaling:
These are the moments I thank God that I'm alive
These are the moments I'll remember all my life
I found all I've waited for And I could not ask for more
I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
Every prayer has been answered
Every dream I have's come true

Materials Used:
Scenic Route Sonoma pp's, Bazzill Swiss Dots CS, Jenni Bowling journaling card, Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas, Making Memories tiny alphas, Reeves Bronze acrylic paint, brads & buttons, American Crafts precision pen (black); Colorbox chestnut roan fluid chalk, DMC thread.

Techniques:
paper tearing, distressing, hand-stitching (the black border), hand cutting.
