Friday Finds

With CHA coming up, people are looking for sneaks and previews all over. But, would you love to find all of the major company sneak peaks in one easy to use location? We thought that would be cool, too- so we compiled them for you.

Come on over and take a look- and while you're there, be sure to take a look around. There are many boards on the internet- and some are really great resources. But, let's be honest- some are mean and scary places. You never know what not to say, or what's going to cause the next drama. Our forums are a whole different world then that. We treat people with respect, and that runs through our entire forum. It is a fun, informative place to be filled with kind and friendly people. We invite you to join us.

GCD: Bird on a Wire

This little guy may just be hanging out, but doesn't he look all sophisticated in his black and white? This is another simple card, but, again, sometimes less is more. The bird on here is embossed in white to make him pop, and the layers of black and white make a striking combination.

GCD Studios: Butterflies

This is a simple card, but when you have all that glitz and glam from the paper, who needs more? You might not be able to see it well, but this paper is covered in glitter! Each of these butterflies sparkles like a gem. This card is proof that a lovely card can be whipped up quickly, and still be a joy!

Here is another card for the fun Alluring Impressions Event at Scrapbook Nwws and Review Magazine. I love the bulletin board look of this one...and the vinatge car, too. The cork on this is real, and gives a great texture.

Scripture of the Week

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Phil 4:8

I've been on vacation for the last week, and enjoying myself immensely. Nothing too fancy, no grand destinations, no grand plans- and that was the predesigned beauty of it all. Just a chance to rest and recharge. Last night, I chose to rent a movie that most of my preschool class has that was marketed to the younger crowd. I won't name any names, that's not the point. What is? I watched this movie, and was appalled at the language and off color jokes. I walked away with this verse in my head. Do we apply it to our tv viewing? movies? video games?

Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not perfect. I have what I call bubblegun shows- no point, very little plot, but they're fun. But they are also the type of shows that you don't think about again. I'm still thinking about the movie from last night. My plea, this week, is an encouragement- do you moniter your video intake...for yourself, and your children? As you are monitering it for your children, do you explain to them why they are not watching a certain show--what you find questionable? Some day, they will be making these choices, on their own. Are you training them to make wise choices?

Scripture of the Week is a regular feature of A Faith Perspective- the faithbooking blog and column sponsored by Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. We invite you to join us!

Bad Blogger! I confess, December really got away from me! No, I haven't abandoned my blog, I am! One of my resolutions is definitely going to need to be the blog, huh?

This week, I'm going to show you a couple of projects from Alluring Impressions. This was a special event hosted by Scrapbook News and Review Magazine a bit ago, but the wonderful inspiration, and classes, are still veiwable here.
