Everyone is posting about how great 2013 was for them, but for me it was far from it. I am beyond excited to turn the page and put this year full of hardships behind me. I guess you could say the entire year wasn't bad, just the last 6 months. But overall, I am ready for 2014 and to be happy again. Some people are picking a word for 2014. I think mine should be strength. I really need strength to overcome what happened and to know that what God has in store for me someday will be great. I need strength for the next month to know everything is going to be okay as well. I just had an emergency surgery and because of it I will be out of work for the next month, without pay. It really scares me, but all I have to keep thinking about is that God will take care of me.
While I didn't get to scrap much the past 5-6 months, I do have some favorite layouts to share from this past year. I know my love for scrapbooking will never go away despite all the hardships. Here they are in no particular order.
