It's that day of the month again that I get to share my Inspiration Elevator creation with you! I so love these monthly challenges and what they help me create.
If you check in often, you may recall that the purpose of this challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. You can view all of the challenges on my blog by clicking here or by checking out our new Inspiration Elevator Blog, here.
This month, was my turn to issue the challenge. This is what I came up with:
"As we welcome spring, scrap something to do with a new beginning, it could be an opportunity, a relationship, or even the world's reawakening after it's long winter's nap. Don't forget to journal and describe why you have chosen your topic."
I chose to utilize this challenge to document our youngest son's official adoption day. On July 5, 2005, at almost 2.5 years old, this sweet faced boy became a legal part of our family. Yes, he lived with us since birth. And yes we loved him since he arrived. And yes he always was 'ours' in our hearts. But that little piece of paper, signed by a judge, meant the world to us. It meant forever! July 5th will always be 'Gotcha Day' in our home, the beginning of our future.
This is what I journalled, "July 5/05 - Today marks a new beginning. It's official, you are ours! Not only in our hearts, but in all of the other ways that also matter. We now share a name, a past, and can now create a future together as a family of five!"
I hope you will stop by and see what our designers on this adventure have created:
We would also like to welcome our May Guest Designer, Denise Morrison. Her artsy, eclectic style inspires her followers to see how "Life is Yummy" at her blog!
Thank you so much for visiting!
