everyday faith


Happy Friday lovebugs!


Welcome to another chatty post chez moi!  Hang on to your socks 'cause this is going to be a looong one!

I have been catching up on the Scripture 2 Challenge I found on THIS wonderful blog.  Seriously grab a cup of coffee (I'm talking Venti here) and spend a day looking through her incredibly inspiring creations, and her organizational tips too!

Amazing, I tell you!Smiley from millan.net so, late last year I came across the challenge Patter hosted (along the same lines as this one) but unfortunately I never really caught up.  I decided I'm going to try to catch up my 2009 book - as I work alongside this one, but for now, I'm most excited to just start a fresh new year of taking some time to focus on my faith, and this is such a fun and motivational way to do it!  I find that it's such a great feeling to set aside all the issues surrounding you and just focus on God's word, even if it's only for a few minutes each day. 

Personally, I have been trying to do this for some time now, and it makes a world of difference, especially when you encounter negative situations, or people who sadly live and project nothing but anger and bitterness (ahem) ,Smiley from millan.net or, like my buddy Sandra calls it, "bad JuJu". So, I have found much comfort in turning the other cheek, and living my life the best way I can, while hanging on to my Faith, and it feels great!

anyhoo, I am sooo proud of myself because I managed to get my Cover page done for my stand - I am using the same thing Patter is using, which is the Frame Your Imagination Stand from Taylored Expressions, along with the 6 x 6 Page Protectors, and I must say, it looks DIVINE!!!

Here is the cover page, I made:


isn't this delish?? I used some of my SU! Razzleberry Lemonade DSP for my background layers since I wanted this kind of retro look to go with this gorgeous Prima Flower that I've been hoarding forever.  The wide pink ribbon and gray corduroy buttons  are from Stampin' Up! I used some gray Bazzill CS for my letter, which I cut out using my new Pink Slice (I SO love it), and the Wedding design card.  I sponged the letters using walnut distress ink.  The Cork Numbers and Tiny Alpha letters are also from Making Memories.  I typed up my verse and printed it out onto Choice Snow White CS. cuteness? I think so.Smiley from millan.net 

But wait! there's more!!  it's time for Hope -


Hope is Word #1 for the Challenge, and I think it was a great choice to start off the new year.  For all of us, I hope we have a year filled with love and health and everything beautiful, but it is most important to have hope during trying times and less than ideal situations.  I chose Psalm 25:5 for my Hope Page:


I love the way this turned out, before I did my layout I spent quite some time reading over some passages in the bible, and this Psalm was the one that I was immediately drawn to.  I hope to think about this every day, to sort of remind me of where I want to be each day emotionally.  I chose these colors because to me they seem calm, but happy.  Not overly bright, and just pretty!  the paper is from Stampin' Up, though I cant remember the name of it for the life of me - the ribbon is also SU!  My flowers are from prima, as well as the swirls.  (Gotta have bling!!) I used my Think Pink Slice Card to cut out my word, which I sponged using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Do you just love the font on this??  I do!! It's called Porcelain and you can download it HERE for free!! It's so vintage and shabby, YUMMY!!

Thank you so much for letting me ramble on and on! I hope you are inspired to celebrate your Faith, (whatever it may be!!) as anything that makes your life better and gives your little heart peace, is a wonderful thing to celebrate!
