Happy New Year!!

I hope that you all have a wonderful 2010! I know 2009 has brought some challenges to so many of us. I seek comfort in his word when I worry about these earthly things. Jeremiah 29:11 always comforts me. If you don't know that verse I encourage you to go look it up. I don't typically do resolutions but I am going to try to implement change this year. I want to get more into God's word and seek his plan for my life! His word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path!

I just completed a couple of pages for a mini crop being held at Life Preservers. I posted a sketch challenge for it.

I would love to see what you can do with this sketch. Here is my sample:

I used the December card kit for the sketch. I plan too make some cards with the sketch too and the kit thanks to suggestions by Rhonda and Jodi on LP. Thanks ladies!

Merry Christmas!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas! We were blessed this year by having a somewhat white Christmas. Although it did not snow today we have snow on the ground from the snow we had a few days ago. A whopper of a snowfall for us too. Very very exciting. To top off this wonderful blizzard we had my postal carrier delivered me a fun box Monday. He delivered the December Life Preservers kits. So here are a couple of pages I completed yesterday using the December Alternate kit and add-on. That Sassafras was stupendous!!

Thank you for looking. The photographs were Emma's third and fourth grade school pictures by LifeTouch.

Great News

I have been walking on air today! I received the most wonderful news today. Von has asked me to step in on the Life Preservers Design Team. I think I have told you all how I felt about these wonderful kits that Von puts out. But the team and message board ladies that she has are a family. I am honored to be asked to work alongside of them. Thank you Von from the bottom of my heart.

From Here 2 Scrapternity

I participated in a online crop on From Here to Scrapternity this past weekend. Yes I should have been making Christmas cards and in fact I did make a few. But I have several more to make.

This page was done for a Sketch Challenge. I used Basic Grey Porcelain collection and my Home Accents Cricut cartridge.
This was for a "countdown" challenge. 5 pictures, 4 patterned papers, 3 embellishments, 2 word title, and 1 creative journaling. The 5th photo, 4th patterned paper, and journaling is behind the Santa Claus envelope which is what I grabbed from Macy's when Emma dropped her letter so Santa. They had those there for the children to write but Emma had already written hers and sealed it. So I took that one for scrappin. :) For the page I used Bazzill, Brenda Walton, Rusty Pickle alphas, and Imaginsce. Here is Emma dropping off said letter.

This challenge was to use the contemporary Christmas colors which just so happen to be my favorite. Red, dark green, cream, and gold. Red Bazzill, Imaginsce, and Thickers. Actually this came from same kit (don't remember which one..sorry) as the previous page.
And this page was for a One Word Challenge. They gave you several words to choose from and you had to journal 20+ words. Not crazy but my handwriting but it is mine ya know?! I used some Bazzill cardstock that I found in the local Michaels and some MME paper that Von at Life Preservers sold a few months back. Also my infamous Thickers. I love me some Thickers.

So there was a Punch challenge too which fit in perfectly for my design for my Christmas cards I had planned to do. This Cosmo Cricket paper Von also sold a few months ago. I love this collection. The punch and stamp is from Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking at my creations! I hope you all are ready to celebrate the birth of our Savior! I can't imagine a greater gift.
