~Friday is here and are my *special* Dirty Scraps!~

Good morning!!!!! I have a special treat today
*shhhhh* don't tell the bosses! LOL

Dirty Scraps has their new challenge up and it's all about
"If I had Known"
I love it and it went hand in hand with my layout
for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out and their kit this month
I knew exactly what I wanted to do right away, so
I asked permission to share this early on Dirty Scraps
because the kit was so perfect for this challenge!
I love that SFTIO "gets" my scrapbooking.
I love that people are so excited about Dirty Scraps,
it has been an amazing adventure so far!
This is muy layout, it's about leaving my "family"behind
and how I was so much stronger than I thought.
I wish I had known years ago that
I did not need to take that abuse and did not
have to be with and please all those abusive family
members, I could have left sooner and I would have been OK.

It would not be my personal blog if
I did not give a shout out to my AMAZING HUBBY!
Who is 35 today and has a birthday!!
The man who is not afraid to stand strong
who works hard, who is a loving father and a kind man.
The man who sees past all my BS and somehow sees a
beautiful woman with a kind heart.
The man who looks at me every day and says
"You are so beautiful, I love you"
The man who tells each boy every night, "I love you"
as he tucks them in no matter what day it is.

Love ya honey, you make me who I am today!
I have tremendous respect for my husband and
I hope I am half the man he is when I grow up! :)

~Happy Friday y'all~
~Have a great day~
