I keep a section in my Prayer Journal dedicated to scrapping lessons I have learned...verses I am working on, things that have meaning to me.  Recently, I scrapped this picture I took at a balloon was perfect for the verses about being the Light of the world!

Black and White and Red all over...

Just a simple, but really elegant card I made in January.  The cheerful spring paper sure did help beat the winter doldrums!!

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

How about a look at my last sketch for My Sketch World?  And, I do mean, my last one.  It has been a great year, and Lucy has amazing sketches to play with...I have certainly enjoyed myself!!  But, the time has come to let another team take over- and I know they will love their time as much as I have.  Thanks, Lucy, for a great year!!

This is the layout I made after making pizza with the kiddos.  We were learning the letter P- so a pepperoni pizza was a no-brainer.  They knew the letter P by the end of the day...knew it cold, lol!!

Black Market Society

I loved this paper, when I saw it...and have been carefully hoarding it for months!  I finally broke down, and decided to use it.  The flowers were a paper all their own- but didn't they cut out beautifully!  I really should have gotten more of this!

Have all your Valentine's goodies done?  No?  No problem...head on over to the SNR Card Universe tomorrow night for the Valentines Mini Card Crop.  It is going to be a load of fun!!

Card Week

It has occurred to me that I haven't shared my cards with you in a while.  Bad, Anne!  So, this week, you get a card every day.  Yeah!  We just finished up a month long scrapping contest at Scrapbook Express- fun, fun- and I have a literal ton of new cards!!

So, here is the first.  I chuckle every time I see this stamp.  For some reason, it reminds me of my mother.  Has to be the attitude, lol!  I also love the geometric nature of the American Crafts paper.
