Saying Goodbye

to Get Picky ;(
I'm really bummed.
the  challenge site is closing down.
it's been so fun and I've felt like I've created some of my most favorite layouts here.

I have one last challenge to share with you.......and it's a nice way to finish off.

Our challenge was to  scrap about someone who inspires us.  For me that was easy....it's all the amazing women that surround my everyday life.  I am so lucky to have such a vast network of friends here in my little community.  These women are some of my most favorite people in the whole world.  They are strong, and brave, courageous and such good examples to me.  I love them.

It also doesn't hurt they the secretly connived to throw me a little 40th birthday party.  I was so touched, really I was.  It was such a fun night!!!

 "beautiful people don't just happen"
There was another time in my life when I felt surrounded by these kinds of women.  Where I felt loved and encouraged and lifted up.  When we moved I felt like I would never experience that again.  It truly is a special thing.  It took quite a few years and another move to discover it again....but it did happen again and I'm so grateful.  I really love my community and my friends.  

Here is our inspiration prompt......I used the last line as my title.

when I read your previous post about your surprise party I felt a little hurt that I wasn't invited and missed celebrating with you- THEN I remembered that I was invited but we were out of town. Silly me! So I'm sure it was tons of fun. That is definately one great group of friends!!

This is just a wonderful layout. First, the topic is one near & dear to me. It is such a great thing to have an amazing group of friends. I have a couples bible study group that we started about 8 years ago. At the time we were all just husbands and wives. Not we're all the parents of 2 kiddos each between the ages of 7-6mos. It's been great to have the love, support, and encouragement of great people!

I also love every single element of this LO! The pops of teal/red, the doily, washi tape, button and distressed edges especially! It has such a flow to it! I love it!!!
