Its the final countdown

Dee diddle diddle dum
Ah Europe. What a classy song.
And if you weren't old enough in the 80's to enjoy a bit of OTT classic rock, I'm sorry.

So...
my babies are back!
The journey was torture on Tuesday. It took an extra hour to get there due to accidents and road works. Here are the boys together. Emrys has grown by at least 2 inches in three weeks.
You can see Lil C on the layout below which is my Salt contribution for this week. Nothing like using a fresh photo!

The Salt challenge this time is...
Obedience
Psalm 119:60, “I made haste and did not delay to keep Your commandments.”
and all I became aware of is how hard it can be to actually make that verse true. I am more "procrastinate and eventually think about living God's way" I am ashamed to say. But thank God - I can be forgiven and challenged and helped to live right straight away
So the layout kinda reflects that
as I finished it I remembered I am supposed to be making more 8.5x11 layouts for my scrapbook as I have loads of those inserts to use. Doh!
The papers are new American Crafts everyday. Letter stickers AC too. Oh how I wish I had stuck them down just a few cms further to the left. But once they are down those bad boys are down/ Add some doodles and some Poundland bling and thats it. Helped enormously by this weeks Sketch This sketch

I used another Sketch This sketch for a layout this week and it is one of my all time faves already!

Sometimes simple is the way to go. This goes in the holiday 2007 album (now filling up nicely!)
Crate paper, American crafts thickers, Distress ink. Done.

Today is the last Drop a Dress Size day. Tune in tomorrow for the results!

Beautiful layout Lythan! I love all of the details and the color combination...Just wonderful! And how blessed to know that although none of us obey as we should, we can rely on the work of the Holy Spirit to strengthen us each day!

Great sketches to base your LOs. Love your response to the obedience challenge - how I accord with what you've said. And the photos are wonderful!
