"All About Me..." Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone!
Today I am participating in a unique Blog Hop put together by Shelley.
Our Blog Hop today is All About Me.  And let me tell you it was not easy trying to scrapbook
me!  I am so used to scrapbooking or making cards for others that to try and focus on myself
was difficult.  I am sure throughout this blog hop you will see many of us crafting sisters feeling
the same way.  :)  Don't you?
Are you ready to see my project?  Great!  But first make sure you stopped at Nadja's blog to first.  We would not want you to miss a stop in this hop.  :) 
I decided to put together a mini album made of chip board.  I thought once this hop was over
I would keep it by my crafting table to remind me of my favorite things and things that inspire me.

This is one of the most important days of my life.  The day of my Baptism.
  I gave my life back over to Jesus Christ.

Wedding Day. 
My precious children
My best friend at her wedding.  She has been through so much with me. 
We have been friends since our Junior year in high school.   I can't even count
how many years ago that was... hahaha!
This was one of my favorite times in my life.  Our mission trip to Haiti.  God called my husband and I
to plan out trip to Haiti with our church.  Some people thought we were crazy, especially leaving our 'not even one year old' little girl at home.  But we were so confident in God and His word that I was comfortable doing this.   So, ever since then, Haiti has always had a soft spot in my heart.
I love animals, especially dolphins, puppy's and horses.  One of my goals in life is
to eventually swim with a dophin.
Here is are some more things about me and what I love.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me.  Feel free to share your story. 
I always love to hear from you. 

Now it time to hop on over to my friend  Robin and learn a little more about her. 

Enjoy and don't forget to comment and become a follower on all of our blogs to win this incredible
blog candy offered by Shelley.

Here is the Hop list in case you get lost.
Have a blessed day everyone!
