Blessings Abound!

Gods provision is great in his time!  He is truly blessing my friends.  I am so happy for them.  Carrie, who I went to Brazil with, and her husband are adopting a son and may have him by the end of the month!  I am so happy for her.  I only learned last week that they were considering adoption.  They will make wonderful Godly parents.  You should hear her sing!  I am so glad that the Lord has her at Hyland Heights Baptist Church because she is so beautiful and has a sweet instrument.  
Also my former Sunday School teacher picked up her baby that she adopted from China.  This is a process that she started over two years ago.  She has shared pictures of her and her daughter Michaela and it brings tears of joys to my eyes.  She too will be a Godly mother.  

For Memorial Day I scrapped some!  I did not make the fourth cut of the Gauntlet contest.  I am ok with that.  :)  So are some of my recent creations!  For the first round we had to scrap something about ourselves!  I had a coworker die earlier in the week and did not have time to devote to this.  By the time I did I didn't have any supplies with me so I took this envelope and ripped it for my background page.  

Then I used some medical tape for my title.  The rest is stuff I did have on me that I am using to make my Costa Rica mini album.  
Here is Angie at my house scrapping on Memorial Day.  We were watching for bargains online and uploading pictures to ArtsCow.  By the way has a sign in special where you can get 400 free prints.  I just received my first order and they are really nice.  Shipping was about $12 and they ship from Hong Kong and rapidly I might add.  If you sign up tell em I sent ya!  LOL
This page I started a couple of months ago and just needed to put the title on.  So I finished it Monday.  
The page below is from a Life Preservers kit.  I believe it was the May kit.  It includes Fancy Pants products.  The pictures are of Emma in time out when we were building our house.  She does look like she is being punished severely doesn't she?
My first page with Pink Paisley product.  Can I just say Yummy.  If you know me you know that i LOVE paisleys.  And if you name your business that.  Well......   These pictures are from last summer at my parents house.  Do you think she is camera shy?  LOL  My rub-ons that I used for the verse did not rub-off so I had to go over them with a marker.  Actually this was from a kit.  April I believe.  
This page below also came from the Two Spotted dogs kit.  Some pics of me scrappin at various places.  
Thanks for looking!

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone is having a marvelous weekend!  It is my weekend  to work and holiday weekends always seem to be busy!  I am going to a crop tonight with some friends this evening and am really excited.  I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day!  Don't forget the sacrifices of time and sometimes lives of our soldiers.  They are the true heroes!  
My neice graduated last night.  I am so proud of her.  She is a beautiful, strong woman of the Lord.  
I completed this page about a month ago!  

And all I can say about the following is  ""HOORAY!""  

Have a great weekend!

Sorry to be a stranger!

You can really tell how fast time flies by your blog!  I can't believe it has been that long since I posted.  I have been teaching a couple days a week in addition to my usual shift and an additional 12 hours in the week.  I have worn myself down and have been feeling it today!  Well I am going to keep this brief as I want to try to be more productive at home today!  I leave you with a couple of more pictures.  It is a picture of the May Faith Based Pages kit and my creations from it.  Also a picture of Emma playing soccer.

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

This holiday ranks on up there as one of my tops.  I was really worried that I wouldn't get to scrap today!  I went to my LSS as they had a yard sale and some new goodies.  Look at the damage I done.  

SEI looks to be making a come back. Really loving the new releases!  Faith Based Pages is having a crop this weekend.  I posted a sketch challenge.  I have had this sketch in my head for months.  Well my Adobe PSE that I got for Christmas doesn't work in my Mac so I had to hand draw it.  But I scrapped a layout with the May kit tonight.  I added the sticker letters and flowers.  Here is the sketch and my interpretation of it!  

Well I hope my peeps are getting their scrap on this weekend.  I might have to do one more page before I go to bed.  Got to get up in the morning to worship my Lord and Savior!

Trying to play catch up!

We made it back safely!  It was such a blessed trip!  I enjoyed spending some quality time with my family.  We did so many enjoyable activities and my daughter tolerated everything really well.  She got motion sick the first couple of days but I got some medicine for her down there that was very effective.  I will share some more photos in the next few days.  Here is a layout I did recently for a challenge on a message board.  Thanks for looking.
