Woo-hoo- got it posted in the right week, LOL! This is for the word trust, obviously. I chose:
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight." Prov 3:5-6

Materials: Paper by Marcella, Chip is Making Memories, Stamp is Autumn Leaves.

Have a great weekend!

God Rocks!


The challenge this week at FaithSisters is answered prayer. This was answered prayer during the first ice storm of the year- our power was out for 6 days- 4 of which, we were open with a daycare in our house. God answered a LOT of prayers that week...but this one was cool.

Journaling: As branches and limbs fell like missiles, 7 out of 9 houses on our side of the street had the electrical boxes literally ripped from their houses...but God not only spared us- He left us the proof. This limb fell so close to our electrical line that it literally froze upright- not touching the wire...mid-air!! How cool is that?!

Clearly Flowers


This is a fun peek a boo card using simple printer transparency. To accomplish this look, cut the card one - one and a half inches from the top, and create a curve along the bottom. Use adhesive runner to adhere transparency between the layers. Adding flowers and ribbons will "clean up" any rough edges- and nicely highlight the look!

Patterned Paper: Zoophabetz2
Flowers: Primas, Cuttlebug die cut
Pearls String: Joanns Crafts
Pearl: Crystal Sticker

Treasure Game


This week's challenge at Faithsisters was to use the verse: "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also..." Mt 6:21. I decided to take a different tack on this one- and look at it from a child's point of view. So this is a game, memory style, where the object is to find matches of what be treasure in heaven for a child- or how a child would accumulate treasure in heaven. There are 10 different matches, including: I love Jesus and Jesus loves me, God wants me to obey my parents; thank you, God, for friends; thanks you, God, for family; God likes it when I help others, God wants me to remember what He says (Bible), I learn about God in church, God wants me to do my best, etc.... (This game could also be used to play a version of Go Fish, too). Then, I altered a Target mailbox to store the card set in....

OK- so this one is a bit late, lol...I confess, it's been done for a few days now- but this week was just insane. Note to self *keep in mind, preschool teacher, here*- when counting down for a 100 day of school party, do make sure it is not going to fall the same week as another major party....oh, say...VALENTINE'S DAY!! 2 parties, one week= very crazy children!!

This one used MME Paper, MM lace, buttons and flowers, and Scrapworks tag. The verse: "God is not man, that he should lie, nor a son of man that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and then not fulfill?" Is 40:8

Even though the forums and gallery are closed for maintenence, there is still a challenge over at FaithSisters...this week is to highlight love. I decided to take this one in a slightly different direction, though...and I was really happy with the way it turned out! I wish it had photoed better- but that is a constant lament, sigh...

I won, I won.....

I da'd flippin WON!!! I am just so EXCITED I can hardly stand it!!! I cannot believe I had to wait so long to share with everyone- I had a meeting tonight, so I just got a second on the computer... anyway....

So, I noticed earlier today that Making Memories is updating their blog from the convention floor- how fun! This got me checking in- so I noticed they had started giving away prize packages on the blog, too. But I kept seeing the message "If all you see is xxx-xxx-xxxx that means someone has already won", sigh. Until about 4:50 CST, when I refreshed the page one last time- AND SAW AN ACTUAL NUMBER!! WOO-HOO!! I have got to confess, I didn't even read the post- I was too busy running for the phone! I know I had to have sounded like a babbling idiot- I was just SO EXCITED!! Trust me, I have calmed down- alot!!! Well, the whole world will hear my babbling tomorrow- as the call will be posted on the Making Memories blog- *cringe*. But, it was totally worth any embarrassment- I won! Margie said I would be getting "a big ol' collection of goodies from the new Animal Crackers collection." How cool is that! I ADORE Making Memories, and I have got to say, I think they are rocking out this convention. I have loved every line that they have premiered- and have you seen that Slice? Is that just the cutest little die cutter, or what? I cannot believe I get to play with one of the new lines, and the kids line is perfect for me, too- yipppeee!

OK, this is the only picture of the Animal Crackers line I can find on the internet- thought I would share my peek. Aren't the little animals adorable?! I tell you, I never win anything! How cool is it, that in the midst of our THIRD- that's THIRD ice storm in 13 months, on a gloomy yucky day, God reached out and said, "Here, Child- I have a little present for you...." God so Rocks that way!
