Lowe's inspired layout with Gathering: Inspiration is everywhere!

Hi there! Misty here and I wanted to share this layout I created to showcase a super special day in my life but first I wanted to tell you that I got the inspiration for this layout from wooden floor mat in a Lowe's mailer. You can see the mat by going HERE. There is inspiration all around you. When something catches your eye think about how you can incorporate in into a layout. You might just love it!

A little while back I was having a particularly rough day and I blurted out that I just wish that my kids would help me clean the house and then I walked outside to get some wood for our stove. A little later that day as I was walking through my bedroom I had to do a double bed was made...but I didn't remember making it (it was ONE of THOSE days). Then I noticed that there was a not on my side of the bed.
This is what it said.
"Dear Mom I love you so I made your bed for you and you said to clean up the house so I picked to make your bed." Love Tessa (your daughter)

I can't tell you how special I felt at that moment. My sweet, eight year old daughter's act of service to me was better than a clean house any old day. What a humbling moment that was for me.

I really do want to grow up to be like her ;)

I used the Gathering collection for this layout because the warmth and richness of it are perfect for expressing the feelings that I have each time I remember this special moment. It also doesn't hurt that it kinda matches my room.
I hope you take the time to capture moments like these in your own lives. Have a wonderful day and remember to use the inspiration around you.
I didn't recreate the floor mat exactly as I had seen it (although I do love those rainbow colors) but it was definitely the driving force for this layout.
