When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Music Monday - You are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

Here's another fun challenge by the awesome two Angelica Suarez and Erin Lee.  The BFFs both love music and papercrafting so they thought of coming out with a new challenges called Music Mondays. The two will be alternating into hosting challenges.

Here we go, the first song, which was the first challenge was picked by Erin.  The song is "You are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne.  Thanks to Erin for posting it in her blog because in all honestly I do not know the song.  I google the lyrics and I know exactly what card I will make for this particular challenge.   Erin wants everyone to make any kind of project as an entry and devote it to someone who makes you smile, laugh and happy.   After listening to the song with a printed lyrics in my hand, I know exactly what I want to make.  So I'm off cutting with Cricut machine again.  Here's my take:

 My spoiler husband and my two crazy children are the best thing that ever happened to me.  
Needless to say, I cannot imagine life without the three of them.
Everyday is a roller coaster with its ups and downs but I wouldn't trade them with all the tea's in China.
Daddy Rocks!  Daddy is a real spoiler and I can see everyday how much he loves us.
PAPER: DCWV, Embassy and Recollection
STAMPS: Peachy Keen Stamps
INKPAD: Memento Tuxedo Black
