Disney World Trip in The Happy Planner

Gosh, I didn't realize it had been THIS long since my last post. Life seems to get in the way and I neglect the FUN stuff!!! 

Last week, we were at Disney really was a magical vacation! I decided to pack my Happy Planner since I decided I would use it as a Memory Planner. 

First of all, excuse the dark photos, looks like it's getting ready to rain.

Here is the overall layout....
Those cute Disney die cuts came from a Instagram swap pal from Taiwan. 
The pretty pen was from another Instagram swap pal.

Right side. I even added one of the flattened pennies I got at our resort on Tuesday. 

Since I started using The Happy Planner I have been carrying my Rolodex punch with me. 
I used to use this when I altered rolodex cards..back in my crafting days. But now I love it because I can actually use it to add mementos to my planner.  For example I used it to punch a journaling card and our parking stub from the airport. 

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a blessed weekend!!!

This past week in my ECLP

Well we are 1 week into August. And boy does it feel like August in South Texas! It's HOT!!!! Most days are 100-102. This week I decided to use a pack of owls I picked up at WalMart. 

Most of the Washi I used is from Hobby Lobby. Quote stickers is my MAMBI.  Thin pink washi is from an online shop: Annie's Boutique. 

Making this short today....
Have a blessed Sunday!

See the Beauty in Life

Happy Saturday to you! I took this photo after a long, stressful day with my Dad who is in the hospital. It landed on my mirror and looked right at me. 

This month will mark the 4 yr. anniversary of his major, life changing stroke. I kept hoping and praying for a full recovery...that didn't happen. Dad has many complications due to not taking care of himself. 

Many times that day I had to remind myself to see the blessings in the day and remember that God is in control. 

Love those around is too short.

Planning in my ECLP-Camping Weekend

Hey there! I feel pretty bad about neglecting this blog. Life has just been busy. I dream of calm and relaxing days ahead. Someday..........

This past weekend, we took our church youth group to a River Retreat. We had a great time!
My hubby and I got there on Friday before everyone else to get things ready. We had not had rain for weeks....well that day...a surprise thunderstorm hit! We were in the cabins turning on A/C's and lights and walked out to the "Welcoming Crew"! 
There were about 20 goats taking cover. The rain didn't last long....but it was really nice!

Here is my week in my ECLP-

I used some camping stickers from WalMart (.97), Washi from Target and HobbyLobby and some scraps of card stock cut to fit into the squares. The motivational quotes were found on Pinterest.
I use a fine line Sharpie or my Pentel Finito to write in my ECLP. 

Thanks for stopping in ! Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Journaling Bible: Blessed Are Those

Happy Tuesday to you!! I took today off for one slow down! All of this month's activities have taken a toll...I'm tired. It's summer, it's warming up, lots of everything going I took a day to take it slow. I do have several errands on my "to-do" list....but I have about 8 hours to do them, as opposed to trying to do them after work! LOL

Thought I'd start out with a verse from lastweek at Homegrown Hospitality
I even got behind with my Documented Faith journaling, but that's okay. It's not a race, or contest, I use it as MY time with God, and that's my focus. 

"I depend on God's strength, not mine. "You bless all who depend on you for their strength" Psalm 84:5

details: I used Washi Tape, my cricut to cut the scalloped circle, "Blessed" sticker from Mambi, other letters stickers are Tim Holtz (words) and Basic Grey mini stickers. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
