I hope you all are having a glorious October day, wherever you are! My family and I are blessed to be camping in Western Massachusetts at the Christian summer camp our church sponsors. 
This is what I woke up to this morning:

Thanks for letting me share! I wanted to also let you know about our SEM Facebook ChitChat Group where we visit, play games and share in fellowship.  We would love to see your scrappy creations and get to know you better! 
We loved admiring the creative entries in the September Challenges! Seeing all your entries and reading your stories about the husbands,sons and important "boys" in your lives was so inspiring.  I hope you share these with those "boys" so they too can see that they are loved and appreciated as blessings from God. 

Our generous sponsor this month is The Card Kitchen.
The ladies at The Card Kitchen have kindly donated a fabulous card kit as our prize for this month!

I combined all the entries from both challenges and...
Andrea Eason  you are the winner!
Andrea shared with us this adorable "Now and then" layout of her daughter's first day of school. Congrats, Andrea!

Next we have our Top 3 Winners. This is my first month voting and it was not easy!
 The Top 3 are:

1. Lynn
We loved seeing her page dedicated to her  loving husband. Check out the great stencil design and the creative distressed heart shaped picture !

2. Helen
See her layout dedicated to her husband as well. Such great colors and sweet pictures. You can really see how much he loves being a father.

3. Myra
We were so inspired by her story of her husband's transformation and success! 

Congrats to our Top 3! Please place our Top 3 badge on your blog to share! 
Thank you to all who played along!
