You Light Up My Life Blog Hop

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song.

Jearise from Lorby's World is our hostess for today's hop which takes a look at all those things that light up our lives be it a significant other, children, place, or pets. Enjoy what they have come up with as you hop along and please leave a comment on each blog to light up their life today.

If someone turned off the lights and ended up here by accident, please folloewr the lighted path as you begin your hop at Lorby's World. If your hop stayed lit, you should have vntured over from Lisa's Blog.

For my project I made a lay out highlighting those who light up my life. My family. This is an 8x8 lay out. I used Martha Stewart's French Knot punch to make the boarder in the middle. I used Spellbinders Nestablities Label's 8 to punch the pictures and the mats. I used a white gel pen to do the stitching around the pictures and the base of the page. 

I hand wrote the You Light Up My Life in the ovals and adhered them with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by make sure you hop on over to Ashley's Blog.
