'I am Blessed' Layout by Helen Tilbury

A Layout done by our friend, Helen


Hi there everyone!  HELEN here with my first page of the new year!  LOVE the colors of the gloriously pretty tag Marivic sent me.  Take a closer look at it here!

Yummy isn't it?!  I also got to work with the beautiful new collection 'Frosted Life' from 13 Arts HERE.  The 'Frosted Life' collection papers co-ordinated beautifully.

The theme this month is all about being Queen, and my children are the ones that really rock my world and make me feel special.  I know a lot of mothers find kids frustrating but honestly, me & my kids have such fun together & they really are my best friends.  Along with hubby of course.  I don't have any remaining 'original' family so we are really a tight-knit unit & my children are so good to me!

I always KNEW in my heart of hearts that I would be the mother of four children & the Lord really has blessed me beyond measure with them.  Although this page is supposed to be just about ME, I am what I am because of THEM & I love them beyond measure & want them to know that.  For me, motherhood has been a huge blessing!

I've used some really pretty lilac blooms from Manor House Creations.  You can find a large selection of similar flowers over at our Zeus and Zoe Etsy store HERE

I hope you get a chance to play along with Marivic's awesome challenge this month - Happy New Year from me everyone!!
