My "One Little Word" for 2016!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to Sunday!  It's so hard to believe that we are into our second month of 2016 already.  I hope you are all having a good start to the year!

Today I would like to share my One Little Word with you and the layout I created for Challenge YOUrself's newest challenge:

I picked "Faith" for so many reasons.  This past year has been a year of faith for me and my family and for John's family, too.  Here is my latest layout featuring "Faith."

The photo was taken in NYC last March when John and I celebrated our 25th anniversary!

And here it is in black & white:

I am a little late, but last week's prompt at Our Beautiful World was "bird" and I wanted to share my photo above because you can see the seagull flying above our heads . . .

And here are some different views of my layout:

And the poem entitled "Faith is a Bluebird" is from the Disney movie "The Rescuers" and was one of our favorites when Katie was a child.  We would recite it all the time . . .

That's it for today!  If you are a scrapper, I highly encourage you to check out Challenge YOUrself this month!  Pick your OLW and start scrapping!!!

I would like to show you two photos that I took at the farm right down the street from us.  I would like to share these for the prompt "Markings" at Our Beautiful World.  

This first one was taken in the morning.  If you look closely, you can see the markings the corn stalks left behind through the snow.

And the second one was taken in the afternoon.  I love the markings the clouds left in the sky with the sun shining through!!

 I used my new lensbaby lens and love the blurred edges it created!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  HUGS to all of you, my friends.
