So You're Feeling Too Fat to be Photographed
Really good reminders there, especially this one-
And if you’re thinking that high school friend on Facebook will say to herself (“wow she has gained weight”) then . . . newsflash you DID. You gained weight. Shed a tear. Read a book. Drink a Sweet Tea. Watch Oprah. Whatever it takes. Accept this reality . . . YOU GAINED WEIGHT. The truth is you’ve gained a lot of other things too (a career, a family, some kids, a house, a love for travel, the ability to coordinate your separetes . . . ) and that girl from high school is going to spend a lot more time hating on those things then she ever will on your double chin.
So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed? . . . Ok. But you’re the only one who notices. The rest of us are too caught up in loving you.
Go read the whole thing, it's worth your time. Now I have to figure out how to get out from BEHIND the camera so much! :)

Here's one I took of Aaryk and his dad when he was in town last month, and I got to use Jilbert's beautiful kit, Southwestern Venture for it!

Tonight I wanted to try and make a 2 page layout using a single 17x11 page. I had the pictures Mom took of Dad with the Keurig we got him for his 80th birthday and came up with this-
I know this is nothing new to many digital scrappers, but it was a first for me today and I thought I would share! I can see myself working in this format quite a bit!

Every once in a while God needs to hit me upside the head with the clue by four. Today it was in the second reading from 1 Corinthians 13:5b-
Love does not brood over injury
Let's say it again so I don't forget...
LOVE DOES NOT BROOD OVER INJURY
Aaryk says I could just stop at 'Love does not brood', and he's probably right!
This is a hard lesson to remember, but an important one. Not only for my marriage, but in all my relationships. I need to learn to let go of the hurt and move on. Whether a friend or loved one is the source, and whether or not it affects the relationship in any meaningful way, I need to learn to let it go and pray. Just pray. That's the only way I will still be able to love, really love.

I'm also taking Linda Sattgast's, Get Organized Now class over at Digital Scrapper and that's been a tremendous motivator in getting my photos and workflow organized. It's a nine week class with new videos each week. Nice thing is, I'll have access to the videos, the transcripts and the class forum FOREVER! I highly recommend this class to every digital scrapper, and even those who just have an overflowing abundance of photos that you'd like to get more organized.
So, without further ado, here's the January pages starting with my Project 12 2013 cover page for January (a monthly challenge over at Digital Scrapper)~
