You oughtta know...

that I am worth knowing!  Yep.  I am worthy and worthy to be known.  Hmmm... I'm having problems convincing myself this truth.  Okay.  I'm going to try it again.  *Looking into the mirror*  "Melissa!!  You are worth knowing!!"  ....   ....   well.  That worked a little bit!

Do you have problems with the same thing?  It's okay if you don't.  I wish I had more confidence in this area of my life and I am so thankful for the current prompt at AAM!  Our challenge for the next two weeks is to create a layout based on the simple fact that YOU are WORTH knowing!!  It's true!!!

Here is my layout:

Supplies:  Paper, stickers: October Afternoon, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Flowers: Kaisercraft and unknown), Alphabet: American Crafts, bling: Kaisercraft, metals: Making Memories, bread tab: Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker, tickets: Creative Cafe

I am worth knowing.  Why? Because I am adopted as God's child. My identity is not found in my past, or from how the world would define me. My identity is in Jesus and His love for me. Yes. I am worth knowing because HE has found me worthy of such a privilege.

I am still digging the beautiful color combo's of The Thrift Shop line by October Afternoon.  So awesome!! Make sure you come by the AAM blog to see the rest of the DT's wonderful take!!  Their layouts left me breathless.  Such beauty!!!
