I am in day 11 of a horrid head cold - well actually as I saw the doctor today it has been officially upgraded to a bad case of sinusitis.  It really has taken a toll on my mojo.  I finally was able to get this layout done that I have been pondering for 2 days.  Sadly that is all I have to share tonite.  I created it for the Colorful Creations September Song Challenge - inspired by the song 'It Will Be Me' performed by Faith Hill.  As you know, I had a truly difficult year (yes, it all started last October so it has been a whole year...).  When I read the lyrics of the song Libby chose for this month I knew I would not only choose a word or two or a phrase but that I had to use the entire song on my layout.  It spoke to my heart about how Michael has been so good to me through all the ups and downs there have been this year.  

I used sketch #22 from 2 Broke Girls Scrap, which I rotated 1/4 turn clockwise and shifted a bit to the left.

The sketch:

I am also going to enter this in Word Art Wednesday Challenge #100 - Praise the Lord.  No matter how poorly I am feeling there are always so many reasons to Praise the Lord!  It is in His almighty strength that I have made it through all the health challenges I have and continue to face this year, He brought me to a wonderful new place to live in Delaware and gave me a wonderful new church and church family, He gave Michael the strength to be so supportive of me through all I have been going through, of course my two wonderful (but very messy!) sons and so so very much more.

I doubt you can read the song on this post and you really should as it is so beautiful, so here are the lyrics for you:

When you start falling 
Who's gonna catch ya 
I'm willing to bet ya 
It will be me 
Who's gonna love ya 
Like there's no other 
Search and discover 
It will be me 

When all the others 
Have gone and hurt you 
Who won't desert you 
It will be me 
Weighing the options 
So much to think of 
But when you think love 
It will be me 

You may not see it now 
Love is strange that way 
Someday somewhere baby somehow 

When you've been broken 
And dreams don't oblige ya 
Who's that beside ya 
Oh, it will be me 

You may not see it now 
Love is strange that way 
Someday somewhere baby somehow 

Who'll be your only 
True romancer 
You know the answer 
It will be me 

What will it take to 
Bring you to your senses 
And finally convince you 
It will be me

So I hope that you also have someone wonderful in your life that it will be you for and that they will be for you.  Thanks for stopping by.  All comments appreciated.
