More pages and a RAK...

I took pictures for this beautiful couple who got engaged, and I made them this page as a memory. The day we actually took the pictures it was -26°C! It was freezing but they didn't mind. Just another testimony that love conquers all. I loved using Jen Martakis' Photo-a-Day Weekly Templates Set 1. If you are just starting to digi-scrap or are out of mojo (like i am lots of times) using a template really helps getting you on track!

I used Chelsea Parsons's Gray Garden Spots and made this little book of quotes. I adore those little drawings that reminds me so much of Beatrix Potter. Actually I am learning some more about Photoshop with Jessica Sprague's Digi: In Deep - Self-Paced class and this is one of the assignments. I am learning so much! I would totally recommend taking one of her classes when you start digital scrapbooking. so worth it.

You can click the images to see it bigger + credits

Some fun news is that my butterfly page is still Number 1 by views (for the 4th day in a row) over at 2peas. : )


Today I am giving away a little goodie bag filled with Making Memories embellishments. Leave me a comment about your dreams for 2010.

Proverbs 14: 1 EVERY WISE woman builds
her house, but the foolish one tears it
down with her own hands (or mouth).

Serenity is my word for 2010. When you find serenity, you have everything your soul needs.

My dream for 2010 is super simple: happiness. I want it to be a good year filled with laughter, friends, books, hope, crafting, and success.

Theresa said...

I always wish for Joy, in life, and Joy in my children's lives as they grow up. My daughter is 3 1/2, so while there is joy, there is also much screaming, tears, the occasional foot stomping and 'I can do it by myself!!'

Therefore in 2010 I also dream for peace, tranquility, patience, and a good night's sleep!!

Beautiful page Wilna! I loved your butterfly layout as well!

For 2010, I wish to use the tools God has given me to encourage others as well as myself. If I can finish this year out by making a difference in someone's life, I will smile, knowing my work is done.

Congrats on the your layout over at 2peas!! :)

I love Jessica's classes! I'm all signed up for the pen tablet class and can't wait to start.

My biggest wish for 2010 is to adopt a "no excuses" attitude, move closer to God, and begin living life as the best version of me that I possibly can. Pray for me!

My dream for 2010 is for peace to reign in my home! I loved that after I had given this a few moments to think about one thing that is every present in my thoughts/prayers/dreams for my family that I saw your Proverb for today. :)

My word for 2010 is create because "life isn't about finding yourself; life is about creating yourself." Thx for the RAK!

Jessica Griffin said...

I'm going to be happy this year. I'm not going to allow anyone to control my emotions as I have in several years past. It's only been a week, but it's been the best week... ever. My house smiles, my kids are happy, my hubby comes home happy. We don't cry over spilt milk anymore!! YAY!!

Congrats on your recent accomplishment, making the Jenni Bowlin design team. I look forward to seeing your work!! I'm a big Jenni and Making Memories FAN!!

(PS: Love your moasic and Christmas lables!!)

My dreams for 2010 are to Pray more, get back into the grove of going back to church, get the family vehicle I want (a Chevy Suburban)(we have two children, 15 months apart and someday planning on having more children), give my husband more time for his college school work (he went back to school to finish his degree), lose weight and move back out of my parents house (this was due to economy)oh, also join a yoga group and start writing again.

Wow! It is inspiring to read all these comments so far. And my heart goes out to the moms who have little ones in Heaven already. I hope they are blessed with babies to hold in their arms here.
I really like your page and think I should try those templates in my digital scrapbooking. It would make the design process so much easier.
For 2010, I hope to get healthier, see my husband have a new job that he likes, enjoy my kida more, and grow in the Lord. Your verses on your blog posts are great. Thanks for encouraging us with those Words of life.
Thanks also for the chance at a prize. Blessings! Julia Irene

Hi Wilna,
I have not commented here in a while, although I do read your blog regularly. Your 3 girls are the same ages as my 3, so I love to see what they are doing. My dreams for 2010 are to 'celebrate' more - all things, little and big, good and yes, even not so good, as i've learned much growth comes from those things that are challenges. Celebrate is my word for 2010.

Tertia said...

I love reading your blog. It is my almost daily stop for inspiration, both scrapwise and spiritually!
My word for 2010 is dream!
That is my dream for 2010, to simply remember to dream. At my age it is the one thing we forget to do - because most of the dreams we had as youngsters have either come true ( thank you God) or they were not meant to come true in the first place.
I dream for my daughter to finally get the opportunity to go to the Common Wealth Games after so many years of hard work and dissapointments. I dream for each of my children to fulfill at least one of their dreams.
For myself, I pray that God will awaken a new dream in my heart, one that is according to His will.

First of all...Happy New Year Wilna!

My dream(s) for 2010 is to spend more time with friends & family. For the last 3,5 years we were so occupied in work (@work & in the church) that there was no time for quality friendship. And i believe that "koinonia"is so important in The Kingdom of our Lord...so......here's to love and friendship with friends and family!!!

Be blessed!

Lynette C said...

OK I am allowed to dream. So my dream for 2010 is to set up a permanent scrapping area in my house. Currently I scap everywhere in the house except the bathroom/toilet, lol. And my scrapbooking stuffs are stuffs all over the house I can find space to stuff. A scrapping room would be dream come true. I am dreaming..........

Mel Nunn said...

My dream for 2010 is to finish up at University and actually have a job as a teacher by christmas. Fingers crossed!

Young Nanny said...

I'm dreaming of a holiday with my husband of 23 years. We haven't had an overseas holiday together in all of that time. This year, my life is about focus - focus on saving, exercising, focus on putting more time into my faith. Thanks for the giveaway Wilna. Blessings

Sophia said...

My goal for 2010 is to be more patient with my 2 girls. And to be the best mother, wife, sister and friend I can be to those close to me.

Thank you for a chance to win.

Michelle said...

My dream for 2010 is Harmony. It is also my word for 2010. Harmony in the world of course but also with my family. So much energy is wasted for little or not so little misunderstanding. Life is precious and should not be taken for granted. Harmony also with my health; eat well, live well.

Sheri (Aunt Re Re) said...

Beautiful page Wilna! I love all your work! My dreams for 2010 are to be everything that He's called me to be....and also to give my daughter the wedding of her dreams!

Happy New Year Wilna! For 2010 my goal is to not just be alive but have life abundantly. To not just fall into the rut of my everyday routine but to truely live each day to the fullest! Last year my word was 'surrender' and in surrendering the Lord led me to a mission field in Africa. What will He do with me this year? -Alisa
