Scrapbooking From the Inside Out - Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Scrapbooking From the Inside Out ("SFTIO") Blog Hop! If you are just beginning at my blog, make sure you go back and start at Melissa's blog.  As mentioned in my last blog post,  I have the pleasure of being the Guest Designer at SFTIO this month.  The topic for March is "Grace", and the monthly kit is just as "graceful" and beautiful as can be!  Here's one of the layouts I created with the kit:


I wrote about how proud I am of my girls and the respectful way they behave around other people -- with grace and good manners.

Now if only they acted that way all the time at home.  You moms all know what I'm talking about . . . but we won't get into that now. ;-)

Here's a look a SFTIO's beautiful GRACE kit:


And now is your chance to win the GRACE kit!!  Simply leave a comment here by 6:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time this Saturday and tell me how you define the word "grace".  Each blog you visit and leave a comment on gives you another chance to win (though only one kit will be given away). 

To continue on the Blog Hop, just head on over to Bonita's blog!

Stacey said...

GORGEOUS!! Your 2 girls & the layout! GRACE:: the ability to forgive without hesitation & without limitations even when you may not be forgiven, to understand NO ONE is perfect except for Him & to love one another unconditionally, the ability to walk with your head held high & know you are the best YOU you can be, the ability to walk in another's shoes & view their world, to give all of yourself without restrictions & be the one to stand up first & to be the last one standing, & to always do what is right, just, & lawful even when there is no one else watching. :)

Stacy, I love that layout. What a beautiful design!

I was always thrilled when people said that my son was well behaved in their houses even though he wasn't always at home. But if he couldn't let off steam at home where could he? Rather at home than someone else's house!

Pamela O'Connor said...

I love everything about this beautiful page you created!

Romy said...

Wow, this layout makes me smile:) It's so gorgeous! I love how you used the scallops to highlight that beautiful photo of your girls.

I think this layout actually just defines grace:) Grace = being elegant, stylish and feminine.

Jaime said...

Stunning LO Stacy! It definitely defines Grace! Grace to me is living with kindness, sensitivity to others, forgiveness and sharing one`s love and joy with others whole heartedly.

Beautiful layout- grace to me is something good given without my deserving it.

Miriam Prantner said...

This is so beautiful! I love how you layered those scallops all around, it almost reminds me of a peacock. How do I define grace? Kindness that is completely undeserved. Somthing that we ALL need from time to time. THanks for sharing. Your girls are beautiful!

Nancy said...

Wonderful layouts! Thanks for sharing.

Martine said...

gorgeous LO!! love the frame you created around the picture! To me, grace is goodness and compassion!

Christine Kiehl said...

Today I would define Grace as the way that (most) of our bodies move without having to give it much thought. We simple are able to move about "with Grace" without having to direct our muscles and body parts to do so. So many people have lost this ability that sometimes it's easy to forget how lucky those of us who don't have to give it much thought really are. Even the most clumsy of us have some physical grace. The way our hands and mouths move when we speak, how we communicate with just our eyes and simply walking or dancing, swimming. Today for me grace defines the magic that is our physical self!

Christina Collins said...

Wow! This layout is gorgeous and so are your girls.
The kit is just so much fun!
Thanks for sharing. :)

Pam said...

Beautiful LO with your lovely girls. Grace to me is kindness and forgiveness.

Peggy said...

I have always heard of grace in the Bible being defined "unmerited favor". This is a lovely layout of your daughters.
Blessings,

What a beautiful layout. I've always thought of Grace is an inner elegance that out outward actions reflect. My grandmother personified Grace.

Karen Conner said...

God's riches at Christ expense. That's what I've always been taught that grace means.
Love your layers on the layout. Yours girls are beautiful!

Barb S said...

As the mother of two daughters I know exactly what you are talking about! I love the texture and softness created by the scalloped paper framing the photo. Beautiful!

Angie Walsh said...

My interpretation of grace is that it comes from within - it is something that is hard to express if it doesn't come naturally! It is a mixture of kindness and compassion with a little love thrown in for good measure ...

Thanks for the stunnng LO as always.

eunice said...

Calm and loving beauty even under pressure and storms. Love your text about your girls!

Sandy said...

Your layout and your daughters are both beautiful! How did you make that gorgeous frame? I'd love to win the kit and scraplift this layout.

cvanholstein said...

The Dutch word for grace is -gratie/elegantie- so I'll go for elegant. First thought: the CAT (and all his family members)I think they are themost elegant creatures in the world.
Oeps, sorry, not so deep this time! lol

And your layout by the way is very elegant as well. You made the photo shine with this design ánd your catching journaling.

Your work is always inspirational Stacy!! This LO is simply beautiful.
I believe grace is loving and serving others where love is not deserved. (aka Jesus like!!)
