I really like this page. It means a lot to me... As you can see in the photos below, my hubby is donating blood at the blood mobile on this page as Abby has fun sitting and watching. If you know my husband, you would know that although he is a big guy, he could pass out at the sight of a needle, however he is a regular blood donor. Wanna know why? He always says he does it with the prayer that if I ever needed blood, someone with my type will have donated too! How sweet is that!! He does it All For Me!
God Bless You,

If you have taken a look at the challenges over on the site, you may have noticed that Thursdays are Bible Verse Thursdays where the challenge is to make either a card, altered item, or scrap layout with a verse. Wanting to step that up a notch and make it more specific, I will now be hosting my Scripture Saturday's at CPC! On Scripture Saturday, I will post the scripture for you to make a scrapbook layout with! As we are trying to appeal to all realms of paper-crafting, we felt it important to add a space just for Scripture on scrapbook pages.
So, if you have never scrapbooked before, but have always been looking for the time to start, here it is! I challenge you to join me on Scripture Saturdays, use the verse and go with it. It doesn't matter what size you decide to scrap, the possibilities are endless, just go for it! If journaling has always been your problem area, why not let the scripture be your journaling and include a note (even on the back of the page if you wish) of who is in the picture and the event! If you are a die hard journaler, or even a mediocre journaler like me, you can write what it is the verse means to you or whatever else tickles your fancy!
This weeks Scripture Saturday scripture is Jeremiah 29:11. For more intimacy with the scripture, you can also head over to Picked With Love and read today's devotion, which uses this very scripture.(My Mind's Eye Out & About Collection, Making Memories, Fiskars Treading Water Punch)

If you have ever stopped by my blog before, you probably know what a huge fan I am of Christian Paper Crafts website. If you have not stopped by there, I encourage you to do so by either clicking the icon to the right or here. There is such a fun challenge going on over there now about a Faith Journal. I have titled mine a Faith Book. You can get the details about it by clicking here.
This is the front cover of mine! I decided to make mine out of cardstock so that I can add to it as a go, making enough room by being able to add more pages, while not having to worry about having too many blank pages left at the end!
I used Heavenly Medley stamp set and Women of Life stamp set from PTI, along with some stitching, buttons, and My Mind's Eye Papers! This also fulfilled the challenge last Thursday to use any Bible verse!!
Please check out CPC to start yours too! I hope this becomes a wonderful treasure to Abby and many generations after her!
God Bless You,

Yes, I do admit that I have a total obsession with clear cards and probably do make them too much! So sorry if you are growing tired of them! Head over to Christian Paper Crafts and see what's going on there this weekend!!
God Bless You,

My little book today has sat on top of my old Singer sewing machine in the living room, I guess since I made it last fall. I loved playing in the leaves with Abby, because when she was so little and new is when I was sick and I worried over whether or not I would get to enjoy these little moments with her. God has richly blessed me to not only enjoy it, but photograph it, scrap it, and create a memory to treasure forever. (For some reason when saving the pictures, the second and third page saved as EVERY other page... that's why only pages 1-3 are included today). Perhaps on a day when I need another pick me up, I will share the rest of these serene little treasures - pictures of Abby!
Thanks for stopping by today!
God Bless You,

Keeping with the theme of Scripture Saturday, I am going to add a verse about prayer to the inside. Please comment with your favorite "prayer" verse!
