Helping Hands. Happy Hearts

This is my layout that is featured on the Momenta blog today!

This past April, we were lucky enough to be invited by our friend Anne to help her cook a dinner for the guests of the Ronald McDonald House in Portland, Maine. It was an incredible experience for us all. We made our whoopie pies that morning and brought them with us for dessert and then cooked a yummy dinner for about 30 people while we were there. While things were cooking bubbling away on the stove, we had the chance to take a tour of the facility and to sit and talk to a few of the families. We were lucky enough to see photos of their kids who were in the hospital and offer some comfort through hugs and yummy food.

We had a wonderful time but most importantly, my kids were able to experience the wonderful feeling you can only get by helping others. If you have an opportunity to find a Ronald McDonald House in your area to volunteer at, I urge you to do so! You won't regret it!

I loved the primary colors found in the Family Outings paper pad and thought they would work perfectly for this project!

Here's a closeup of the title using some of Momenta's fabulous puffy alphas! They are the perfect size for titles and their puffiness gives some great dimension!

And, here's another closeup where I covered a Basically Bare cardboard heart with some embossed cardstock and added more yummy Momenta stickers for a subtitle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired to not only do something creative, but also to do something for others!
