Contest entry layout

Remember the swap layout I posted for the interactive swap? Well, I put some pictures on it and did some journaling. It became my contest entry at the Close To My Heart Leadership Conference in Long Beach, California. It did not win and did not even make it into the finalists, but that's ok. It was something I just needed to do for me. The journaling was from the heart and I mean every word it says. The theme for the contest was "Own It". It was up to you to interpret that however you wanted to. This is my very first contest entry and it was the only one that I readily came up with a plan right away. It just came to me without even having to think about it.I have to admit, it was hard to submit this layout-not because it was so beautiful or anything. I really did not expect to win anything, it was more about the journaling and doing it for ME! It made me feel better-therapy if you will. It was also a goal of mine to enter a CTMH contest. I have never done that before and now that goal was accomplished.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrappin'


  1. Oh Tammy,
    I'm so sorry to hear about your devestating loss. How true that we can trust in the Lord - even when things don't make sense. I hope you can feel His arms of love surrounding you every day. Your layout is beautiful - and a wonderful tribute to your children.

    Thank you for the blog award. I typically don't post them, but I wanted you to know I appreciate your thinking of me. :)

    many blessings, Nona

  2. Tammy -
    I've been watching your blog since around the time your daughter passed away - I have you on my daily "check it out" list. I applaud you immensely for how you are handling your situationa nd I do pray that God reveals at least small parts of His plan to you. I'm glad you know He does have a plan and we are so much better off if we try to live that plan instead of making a new one of our own. My best to you!
