Lasting Memories #278 - Lucky Me

Hi guys! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend. We have had a few beautiful - make me really want for spring - days. Highs close to the 60's and low's in the 40' about nice! It all comes to an end the middle of the week and we'll be back to 30's and a chance of snow flurries, but I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts!

It's (almost) the start of a new month, and that means a new theme and new challenges over at Lasting Memories. For February we are all about the blues. All of our challenges will be color/photo challenges - all focusing on the color blue, plus one other color.

Here is our first color palette for this week:

When I saw this first color challenge, I immediately thought of this photo of me and  my husband. The colors we were wearing were a perfect match for the blues in the inspiration photo with a pop of pink. (The blues in the photo look a little off, but I promise they really do go together!) I've been wanting to do a layout about how lucky I am to have my hubby by my side in this journey that we are on, so I made a spot for some hidden journaling on the back side of the page. Everyone will agree that marriage is hard, but throw a special needs son in the mix and it adds on a whole new level of stress and challenges. Our marriage is far from perfect, but I am so glad that I have him to help figure it all out!
Please stop by the Lasting Memories blog to see what the other team members have created. I hope that you have some time to play along with our challenges this month! I look forward to seeing your creations!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a beautiful day!
