I followed the 6.23 Sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays - It is such a great sketch and I had fun playing along.
and with Challenge #1 at Scrapping Everyday Miracles. Their challenge was to scrap an everyday miracle using paint/mist and typed journaling.
I love the song God Gave Me You by Dave Barns and it makes me think about how blessed I am to have my husband in my life. It is truly an Everyday Miracle that God has planned every second, every person and every event that happens in our life. I am so blessed.

I pretty much followed the sketch to the T but I did add a place for journaling and some extra stitching. I dry brushed/painted behind the photos to "mat" them. I typed the lyrics to God Gave Me You out on my "new" typewriter (that I bought for $2.99 at Goodwill). I cut them into strips and inked the edges.
I had a lot of fun playing along and I hope you are inspired to join in.
Thank you for stopping by today!
