You Light Up My Life ... Blog Hop

You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

Lights on....

For me....My Family Lights up my life...
My home Lights up my life...
So my project is a Lantern from SVGCuts Crisp Days of Fall SVG Kit
I added my own touch to the lantern by adding My Family ... I added some twine to the project...
Oh and I used LOTS of Powdered Chalk from Chalk Ah Lot, the colors I used were Velvet and Sunshine...I used white card stock and did not like the look, so I used the chalk to give it some color...
I used another file from SVGCuts, Chamomile Friendship Cards for the fence and the flowers..

Now I know alot of us feel like our family is who lights up our lives....but my dear husband has been by my side thru thick and thin, I am not the easiest wife...I had lots of baggage from a prior 'life'...and now Josh and I were set up on a blind date...and the sun has never shined so bright in my life since...I have a beautiful daughter and step son and step daughter...I have a home full of love...that's what lights up my life...

Now find out what lights up Lisa's life by visiting her blog....

If you get lost along the way, here is a list of the whole line up, so please keep the light going...
