Spring Emma

I pulled out another C.C. Designs image today called Spring Emma (thanks Anna!). After coloring her in, I cut her out and popped her up with some dimensionals. I also covered the little flower on her shirt with Stardust Stickles. What girl doesn't love a little sparkle? I followed Amy's Friday Sketch #8 for the layout. It's a repeat of an oldie, but goodie! I picked up this beautiful Basic Grey Kioshi paper last time I was in Archiver's. It's soooooo very perfect for Spring!

Completely off topic, but do you have a theme song? I listen to a variety of music and truly believe that it can calm you. One song keeps popping up a lot lately - Bob Marley's Three Little Birds. The main lyrics say, "Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright". I'm trying my best to remind myself of that at the moment. It's tough trying to not be anxious - especially when you are pregnant. We are going through a lot of changes quickly and at times it can definitely be overwhelming. My body is changing daily, my house is torn up as we make some repairs - move stuff around - and box a few things up and if that's not enough, we are still noodling with the idea of putting our house on the market. You know - just thought we would tackle it all in 2010, but as my belly gets larger and I start counting down the days - the anxiety hits me hard! When that happens, I play this song, sway with my belly and somehow it helps calm me down. I also found a Bible verse in Matthew 6:34 that says, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own". So don't be anxious because every little thing is truly going to be alright and it will work out the way it's suppose too. Just wanted to share that with y'all. Hope you're having a wonderful day!!!

What a sweet card. I love it! Your cards are always so fabulous!! What a great song, and awesome Bible verse to cling to when you need some stability. It's been my experience that when things seem the worst, it's not long at all before it all gets better! This too shall pass!! Be encouraged, something very special and wonderful is about to come into your life and you will not even BELIEVE how much love and joy your heart can hold!
Angel Hugs,

Very cute Kim. I love the green background, always seem to stick with white. Need to think outside the box I think!

Too cute, Kim! So glad you're enjoying the images! Life does get busy, and it's good to take your time on things. It'll all get done...or not! Enjoy those baby thumps!
