Triune Blog Train - I Will Make Them One Nation

It's that time again! We have a great color palette for you this month.  Our theme was I Will Make Them One Nation.  Just in time for United States' 4th of July.

I regret to inform you, I still don't have May's pieces finished.  I am amazed I got this month's portions finished!  I've been battling a tremendous amount of pain in my mouth, due to a couple broken teeth.  It got so bad over the previous 2 weeks, I was in tears everyday and was no longer sleeping.
One Monday (the 10th), I went to see my dentist and he told me there was nothing that he could do for me; he had to refer me to an oral surgeon.  YIKES!  They said that I wouldn't be able to come in for my consult until the next week - but because I was in so much pain, they were able to squeeze me in the next day!  I didn't want to wait to long - My birthday is next week AND my husband is leaving on a missions trip.  So, it either had to happen before he left or I would have to deal with the pain until July, when he got back!
I went in for my consult on Tuesday, and because of a cancellation, I could get all 4 wisdom teeth taken out on Wednesday (the 12th)!!  OH MY!  I was not ready at all!  But I did it.  And the down time gave me a chance to get some designing done. LOL  So, I actually have pieces for you this time!  WHOO HOO!

AND God is so great!  My pain before the surgery was a 10 or higher!  After the surgery, it's like a 0.5 or a 1!!  It is NOTHING compared to before!  So, I'm feeling so blessed!

I'm going to keep trying to get some May pieces finished.  Maybe while my hubby is away I can.  We will see. . .

I have a paper pack for you here on the blog:

Our Thing

The Lovely Colors over at With Love Studio are such a fun way to mix and match pieces.  Though, I will admit, most of the time I end up getting the matching pieces. LOL
It's a very soft color palette this month.  I really liked the love theme of the Smitten pieces, by Midnight Owl Designs.  And I love templates, so I just had to use those too!

Grand Canyon

My husband and I took a trip to Arizona to visit his grandparents in 2009.  It was only the second time I had ever been on a plane!  With that said, I had never seen the Grand Canyon either. 
It was such a glorious sight!  So beautiful!
Four years later, I scrapped my first page from that trip! LOL  I used the XOXO Collab, Are We There Yet? from With Love Studios.  And a template from FranB Designs' This & That Vol 6 pack!  I LOVE the big photo!  It was perfect for this page.
