Welcome To The SFTIO Blog Hop!

Hey y'all! How are ya doing today?! Did you enjoy a good 4th of July holiday? I hope so! It was pretty quiet around here. My husband and I just chilled out around the house. But it was a fun day!

Today, I'd like to invite you to hop along with me in the 'Scrapbooking From The Inside Out' Blog Hop! As you may remember, I served on the SFTIO Design Team a while back. I just adore their kits! SFTIO is all about scrapbooking your inner thoughts and feelings...a great form of scrappy therapy! If you are just joining in on this hop and would like to start at the beginning, go HERE to see Melissa's Blog. She is first up on the hop. Be sure to hop along and visit each blog. There is also prizes to be given out at the end of the hop!!!And by prizes, we're talking your choice of kits!!! Yippee! So be sure to leave comments as you go along!
 Now, for this hop, we were asked to choose a favorite layout from our time as a DT Member of SFTIO. This was hard for me to do. I always enjoyed each of their kits and creating with them during my term. The embellishments/papers in each kit were just so fabulous! But in the end, I chose this layout. For this page, I used some artwork provided on the forum by Nancy. This layout is about how life is hard and that it gets so frustrating hearing bad news after another. But in the end, I know I have the love of my life by my side, we'll get through it, and the hope that tomorrow will be a better day. And I have to say, that after I did this page, I felt so much better. I did this about a year ago I guess and life definitely has gotten better. Scrapbooking and SFTIO really helped me through those down times! Here is my page:
Now, next on the hop is Mette! You can visit her blog HERE. Happy Hoppin' Everyone!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!
