A surprise this AM

So i was groggily perusing my email this AM when i came across a newsletter from The Scrapbook Site, and i saw a layout of mine!! it was a fun surprise...

Good morning!

I embarked on my new adventure this morning! I got up at 6 and dragged my best friend out of bed and made her walk around the apartment complex with me in the pouring rain! wahooo! then i went home, nursed the baby and had some time to pray and read the bible and write in my journal, and read the devotional for the day... WOW, what an invigorating experience.. its NOT hard to have God time when you've been walking in rain for 20 minutes!!! anyway, i thought i'd post a super neat resource i found


She's got posted a scripture challenge for the new year. If you go to


you will find another great blog, and their store offers lots of great digi downloads, many of them fREE including lots of neat scripture word art.

So any other Sisters in Christ here?? do you do any faithbooking?? here's one i made this week...

layouts created with my scrappersxchange kit!

Ok, so i JUST started subbing to this kit and it ROCKS!! here's what i've made so far, and i have so much left... lest ye think i'm senile, i make albums for each of my children, which is why they all look the same, LOL

My favorites from last weekend's crop!

What do you think? i had a great time making these.. i also made a bunch with my scrappers xchange kit but i made a seperate post...

my November creations from CHS

hey all! i forgot to post my CHS creations!! check out the link, its a BEAUTY! here's my layouts...

Its kind of hard to see the detail here, but this is glitter glue in an off white color that i randomly sprinkled brown MM glitter into and then shook off. The result is a really neat swirly color.
I think this one above is my favorite... i also used it for a challenge at Scrapping the music blog
which is a MUST VISIT by the way, GREAT blog!

These are ATC cards that i'm hoping to put inside a narrow long frame as fall decor

This is a patterned paper backed fancy pants transparency... so much fun and so beautiful.

A plug for a GREAT store

Ok. This is NOT just because there's a shameless plug contest going on now.. i have loved serendipity from the moment i found it. She ships FAST. She's located in WA, so i know i'll get my stuff the day after she ships it, so if i need something fast, that's where I go. BUT don't stop with just ordering from Kristen, check out the boards, they are my favorite, small, intimate and those there are sincerely caring of others... they are like family. Come check it out!!
