Easter 2011

I hope everyone had a beautiful and blessed Easter. I had the best Easter of my life. As a little girl, I was always interested in going to church. I tried many, many churches when I was growing up, going with my parents, friends, and other family members. One religion above all the others always held my interest and heart - and now my interest has grown into my faith. I finally came home. Since September, Josh (my boyfriend) and I have been taking RCIA classes to become confirmed members of our Church. It has been the most amazing journey I have ever been on, and it brings me so much joy to know this is just the beginning. All of our studies led up to the Easter Vigil, which was Saturday night. I made a few cards for the occasion, and I've got some photos to share from that night, too.

- The interior of our church. I may see it every week, but it will always take my breath away. :)
- Father confirming me into the church. :)

- Josh with his very proud Grandmother :)
- Us with our sponsor/Josh's Grandmother and our priest :)

I apologize that the first card doesn't have any detailed photos. I'll add some later - but this was a quick cell phone pic. The image was cut from the Inspired Heart Cartridge on Bazzill Basics Bling cardstock. Ribbon by Ribbon Boutique; Stickers by American Crafts; Stitching by Sew Easy; Pearls by Recollections.

The 2nd card was also made using the Inspired Heart cartridge. American Crafts foil cardstock; Bazzill Basics bling cardstock; Swiss Dots embossing folder; Stampendous alphabet stamps "You are a"; pop dots.

It was such a wonderful experience that both of our families joined together for. I'm so grateful! Thank you for letting me share this with you.
Lots of love,
