my superman


Happy Superman Sunday!

I have spent a *much needed* quiet morning just trying to catch up on some projects and just drooling over my new goodies from TayloredExpressions  which arrived on my doorstep a couple of days ago!! OMG what a thrill!!  At the top of my list this week has been to make a couple of pages for the His Holy Name Challenge.   So far, this page was my first, so I'm now working backwards to try and catch up!

Faithful was attribute #17 in the challenge.  I started reading through some passages on Friday, which was a bit rough since we were once again remembering the tragedies of September 11.  In witnessing such tragedy, in hearing the stories all over again and seeing the pain that doesn't lessen, it is very difficult, at least for me, to remember that God will protect us, and that He does not falter.  Reading definitely helped me focus on not feeling discouraged, and remembering that in the face of adversity He will be there. He is Faithful, and for that I am deeply grateful.

I made my page using Taylor's Sketch Challenge #82, in which she actually was nice enough to mention me!! (well actually, my teddy), but still!!  awww.. Smiley from

So since I was celebrating my Superhero and his strength, I had to use my brand new SuperCuppie stamp!! 

Is this a hoot or what?  The "weathered" patterned paper is from my Beach Bum Bundle and the yellow polka-dot paper in the back are just little scraps from my August Key Ingredients I swear I am such a miser when it comes to my paper - I have to use every last tiny bit - especially this one which just happens to be GORGEOUS!!    The sentiment is also from the Trick or Sweet II set, and it just so happened that the part I wanted to use fit just perfectly in my SU! modern label punch...Don't you just love when that happens???!!

I just loved the colors on this page - very superhero right?  I know that perhaps it's a bit unconventional to use these fun colors and images for Biblical references, but I think this would be a fun way to share God's teachings  - especially with children.  Nicholas of course is quite used to studying religion, since he attends a Catholic School, however, I think sometimes people might feel as though religuous material tends to be somewhat somber or intimidating.  I am happy that through this challenge I am not only learning, but I am also enjoying the process by pairing it with what I absolutely love to do!!
