Another awesome card sketch is up!

This weeks card sketch is posted on the Let's Capture Our Memories Blog! It was a really fun sketch to work with and the challenge was to use embossing of any kind! Here is my card! The white primas minus the inking are available in the Let's Capture Our Memories Store, also the Bella Pattern Paper!

I am so excited, the Amazing Scrap Race is in its final legs and I have all my legs submitted! The last one was an altered item and I LOVE MY ALTERED ITEM! Once it has been posted on the site as we had to email them to Tanya, I am thinking of selling it on ebay!!! We shall see!

Why me Lord?

I have another Challenge done from My Paper Tree House! This Challenge was about grace.
Well I have done a bare it all layout! I loved the layout and then did the journaling in my own handwriting and in someways it made a pretty layout not quite so pretty because I have the worlds worst handwriting but this was just not something I felt should be typed! So here it is and after I will share the journaling as it is quite hard to read! I wish I could have gotten a better photo as the ribbon is really a very pale pink and really adds to the layout!

on the little ticket is says"what did I ever do to deserve loving you and the kindness you've shown."

"my childhood was rough, filled with both sexual and physical abuse. In my teens I had a boyfriend, (I so needed love and acceptance) One day after him seeing me slapped around, we decided that if I got pregnant, my parents would have to let us marry. It worked and 3 weeks before I turned 17, I was married. I was so blessed with a healthy baby and a wonderful husband. But then I began to feel shame and embarrasement for the "sin" I had done! I would lie and add one or two years to my age just to hide from my sin and embarrasement. But one day the Lord laid it on my heart that if He forgave me that I must also forgive me. I gave it all to Him! His grace is sufficent for me!"

well there you have it! I have put it up for all the world to see! no hiding anymore!
(the funny part in this is I have always looked young for my age and heard it said to me how young I look and so I wonder who I was trying to fool!)

Life is Hard but God is Good!

Lately I have had a rough ride, actually it has been a roller coaster ride for over 2 years but I know that God has a plan and that God is in control! I will ask that you keep my son in prayer but will leave it at that! Jason needs lots of prayer right now!

I have found a new blog that I really like called the Paper Tree House! There are weekly challenges that are Christian based! I really wanted to do all the challenges last month but life took me by surprise and I did not get them all done, of course one reason too is I am on the LCOM dt and I had commitments there and my commitments come before what I don't have to do and so I got those done but that was it for last month! But I will also admit that I am great with deadlines because they make me do things and so I tend to procrastinate without a deadline, and so I did not do all the challenges and who knows I may just do a bunch later but for now I would like to show you the one I did do!

Here was the challenge: To create a project with a Scripture that is the prayer or desire of your heart!

Now I have to admit that I had a hard time trying to decide WHICH prayer of my heart but I decided to go with one I felt was so important!
