Sunday Inspiration

Well, seems I blinked once maybe twice and another week is GONE! Enjoyed another annointed wonderful message from God's word this morning. If you want it hear it check out

We scrappers take pics of some pretty odd things at times. This is a photo of a time that I actually cut up veggies and made homemade soup, no frozen shortcuts...that's not something that happens often in our house with work and such. Why post the picture?? This week I've been especially grateful for the habit of praying before eating. Something I usually take for granted, but lately things have been more crazy everywhere. I'm sure most will agree! Taking a few seconds to remember the Lord several times a day helps get me re-centered and focused on Him; it's a much needed peace-pause & a pray without ceasing reminder.

Truthfully, I don't know if giving thanks before a meal originated when Jesus fed the 5,000 or earlier but whenever it was I'm glad it did!

Sunday Inspiration

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?Psalm 27:1

This is one of the best photos I have taken (Sept. '07 in Pct Valley). Thought it would be good Sunday Inspiration.

I'm not too good at photographing my layouts, they're not really as crooked as they look in the photos. These were all made guessed it the Bella paper packet. I'm trying to finish up my 2008 album. I don't know if you've noticed but they are also the same sketch; Imagine/Monologue; any way you turn them the Imagine layouts look great.

New Bella Paper

This is such a pretty paper kit....oh but not only pretty. I started a masculine layout using it but that's not quite finished yet. Here's a boy layout using it and also a "pretty" one that you would expect when you first see the kit.

The March layout is what my Year of Memories clubs will be doing. For a spring layout I thought Petal and Hollyhock would go perfect with the floral pattern. Oddly enough those two colors of cardstock are not included in the kit; well maybe it's not odd, the colors included are much more classy.

By request....

Here's the layout I entered at Phoenix Regionals. I was honored to be picked in the top five, but didn't win. I used our Fancy Cuts Botanicals. The flowers took a little time to make because I wet and crumpled them, otherwise the layout was super simple and fast.
