Sneak Peek 11/11

Share
Oh my word!  It has been a whirlwind of a week!  Did you all have fun over DSD?  I tried to get in as much scrapping as I could, but with the move, it wasn't as much as I would have liked.. But we're just about settled in - still a few boxes in the kitchen and office, then all the miscellaneous stuff you never know what to do with, but can't get rid of... Anyway.. amidst all of the chaos, I was able to put together a beautiful kit with the wonderfully talented Yari of Jady Day Studio..

For a chance to win, leave a comment here telling me ... about a trial you've had to overcome in life .. There's no messing around in these parts, lol..

I'll be back tomorrow with the full reveal and a winner..

This looks beautiful, Amber! I love your kits so much! One trial I've had to overcome was the really hard time people gave my husband and I when we first got married. We had no family support, as he was considerably older than me, and they couldn't understand. But, 14 years later, we're still together. :) Thanks for the chance, honey!!

Two days after my son was born, my husband took off for law school in Oregon. I followed with our baby two weeks later. It was the first time I had ever even been to Eugene, OR. The first year was so hard. I struggled with post-partum depression and seasonal affective disorder, on top of having my first brand new baby and being far from friends & family, with my husband in his first (brutal) year of law school. (Wow, that was a run-on sentence.) It was one of the darkest times of my life, but we made it through. And I grew to love Oregon!

I love the sneak peak! With my second baby I had to do four months of bed rest. I could only get up to shower or use the bathroom. I had to have someone with me at all times to help take care of our toddler. The baby came 5 weeks early, but we are grateful to have him as part of our family. Thanks for a chance to win!

Looks beautiful. My water broke at 20 weeks when I was pregnant with my oldest son. I was encouraged to terminate the pregnancy at that point but we (my husband and I) couldn't do it. My son was given a 5% chance of making it to term and within that 5% there was a 80% chance of high morbidity. I spent three months on bed rest -- two of them in the hospital. He came at 32 weeks and he is perfect. Thanks for this chance.

ok, WOW this looks amazing! Can't wait to see it!
Hmm...a trial? Probably overcoming my own selfishness and learning to trust God. I went through a very hard time, spiritually, in my life a few years back.
Thanks for a chance to win...looks gorgeous.

Very pretty!! My biggest trial is trying to help my son who is dyslexic and has ADHD!! He struggles in school and it breaks my heart to see him have a hard time!!

Thanks for the chance to win!!!

I'd say my parent's divorce has been the biggest trial I've had to overcome. Unfortunately, it's one that continues to touch parts of my life, even into my adulthood. I'm thankful for God's grace and the support of good friends to get through the rough times.

This kit is GORGEOUS, Amber. Thanks for a chance to win it. <3

The sneak peek looks great it is ins some of my favorite colors. My biggest trial started when 2 months after my son was born my husband was laid off. It took him 6 months to find another one that was no where near his old salary. We have been struggling to get back on our feet, but there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel.

This looks fabulous! I think the hardest thing I've gone through and dealt with was when Phoenix Children's Hospital accused my husband and I of causing Mason's head trauma and CPS got involved. Looking back now, it really all only lasted 6 months, but at the time it seemed more like 6 years.

I loved reading everyone's stories. It's amazing what we can live through.

Thanks for the chance!

Oh Goodness...I would say my biggest trial (or rather a Mothers worst nightmare) was the death of my first child. I carried her full term, but she passed away during birth and they couldn't save her! On a happier note, we have since been blessed with 4 more wonderful children. God is good!

Thanks so much for the chance to win. I love the colors in your new kit! ~Fonnetta

Wow. Love the look of this kit. The colors are very calming....a challenge I had to over come was coming from a horribly broken home and the fear of being a mother and repeating mistakes of the past that were not my mistakes. Not having the example to fall back on. But having a wonderful husband who is the best father ever and the best little boy makes that challenge pretty easy after all. :) Thanks for the chance!

This looks like a great kit !
With every like ache and pain my parents have, realizing that they won't be around for ever ... that's hard.

Hey, Amber! Thanks for the opportunity. Back in 2004, my father- in-law spent over three months in the hospital with, obviously, a very serious illness. Without he prayers, love and support of our many friends and family, we would never have made it through that roller coaster ride of trial and emotion. Very thankful today for that support.
