PLEASE TAKE THE TIME to do an inventory of your home! A FIRE can destroy your life in a flash. I would HATE to have ANYONE go through what I am going through!!

Happy Birthday!


It's been awhile since I've posted a layout! GEESH!! Life and trying to get a home have just CONSUMED me!! I've been doing my weekly layout for the Scrappin'-n-Chattin' 52 week challenge but that's about it. 

So, today, I am off work and came to my happy place! Here's me in my Little Happy Place:
 For those of you new to my little place here on the web, I lost my home and 90% of what I had just 1 week before Christmas! If you click on the fire link above you can read and see some pics of it.
I used this sketch over at Artful Delight:
 Here is my take:

 I used some MME Hip Hooray, the butterfly is from my friend Theresa, and the rest is from my stash that I did manage to save from the fire.
I'm also linking up at:
Scrap Your Story- their challenge is to use 1 photo- Thanks Kristie!!
Scrap It Girl-their recipe challenge- 1 stamped image-party hat, 2 punches butterfly and my border punch, 3 printed papers - Thanks April!!
Lasting Memories- their 2's Company 3's A Crowd I have several sets of 2 and 3 of the same kind of flower.

I hope you take time to play along with these challenges! 

Have you taken photo's of your home and belongings? Believe me it could save you BIG TIME if you ever lost your home!



  1. Great layout, Kim!! Love the pic and the papers you used. Thanks for the shout out and for playing along with Scrap Your Story!

  2. OMG! Kim! I had no ideal that you had gone through this, my biggest fear is fire and my heart breaks for you. I am so glad that the fire was during the day and that no one was hurt. I agree that certain things can be replaced but there our so many treasure that mean nothing to someone else but you. If there is any thing I can do for you please let me know. I have so much scrapbooking supplies and I know I will never use it all. Just say the word and send me your address and I will get a package together for you. Take care my dear and by the way your layout is beautiful.
