Happy Valentines' Day!
DH and I don't usually celebrate Valentines' Day as we find it terribly commercialised but yesterday (on the eve so it's still regular prices) he brought me to a jazz bar for the first time in my life. We like listening to jazz, so he thought live jazz would be wonderful! It was! The only thing was we don't really drink, and had no idea what to order, finally settled for a mocktail and something raspberry that tasted like cough syrup! lol
But better than that, I made a fabulous card for him with this layout which I printed out on tracing paper, and attached to the inside of the card. Can you tell it's in the shape of a heart? We had started taking pictures of ourselves by looking into a camera we held at arms length, because we hardly have pictures of the two of us on trips and the boys are still too young then. Well, these are a collection of such shots taken in HK, Singapore, US, Japan, Malaysia, I turned them into black and white to unite them. I love this layout and he did too! Can't wait to share it with you, scroll all the way down for the template link!

Today the scripture passage I read included Mark 1: 7 " where John the Baptist said of Jesus :" the throngs of whose I am not worthy to stoop down and untie." WOW. This really helps me to picture a glimpse of Jesus' Greatness and my unworthiness, and helps me appreciate a little better how great His love for me. May you know His love this day when the world celebrates love.
And I want to tell you of the blog of my new found friend Lynette, you must go check it out here . She does beautiful photo and digiscrapping art which she shares DAILY for FREE, and also shares beautiful words of inspiration and truth. What a dear she is! Thanks Lynette!
I'm behind in scrapping my project 365, but intend to catch up and will share more templates then! I will try to make more 365 templates too as requested!
Thanks to Rebecca who highlighted to me that the Shutterfly offer is only for CK books, well, since I got started, I'll still be hurrying to finish the remaining layouts of my 2008 photos. I'm so proud of myself I did the below layouts in less than one and a half hours each. Normally I take up to 3 hours, mostly spent on searching for the perfect background paper (!) and on arranging the photos and making the shadows, of course. How long do you normally take per layout?
