Yesterday and Today


I am taking this class through Big Picture Scrapbooking called Yesterday and Today with Ali Edwards. In a nutshell the premise is creating 12 layouts that share stories of who you are.

About christasterken

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
