Look at the fun challenge over at inspire me by Webster's pages. I love using old photos.
Here is my LO for the challenge. This is me in 1983, I was 2 years old.
I mentioned in an earlier post that Faith Sisters was having a birthday crop. Here are a few LOs I did for the crop. One was to scrap an event from the last 3 months. I still had not scrapped the first day of school so I chose those photos for this challenge.
Another of the challenges was to use 3 different ribbons on a LO. So here is my LO for that challenge.

Thanks for Looking!!! I had a great time.

Seasonal colors, widgets, and talking.

Do you like my seasonal colors I put up on my blog? Who says that you have to have the same colors all year long? When you use the templates that blogger gives you, you can change them all the time. Be ware of useing other templates, they will make you loose your widgets. LOL You may be thinking, what is a widget? I just love that word, it is so fun, don't know why. Anyhow, your widgets are the links you have saved and pictures and gadgets you have put onto your blog. Make sure that if you use a non-blogger template you save all your links to your favorites or bookmarks. Trust me on that one, been there and didn't do it. Learn from my mistakes. LOL

On a different note, I just have to share with you something that my youngest son said to me. He is such a funny little kid.
He was running around the island in the kitchen. Around and around, talking a mile a minute. I asked him if he could be quiet for a few minutes.
Remember he is 4.
He says NOPE. I can't keep my mouth shut and you wanna know why.
So of coarse I asked "WHY?"
He says, because my name is Alex I and I like to talk. LOL
I look at my husband and we both burst out laughing at that same time. What else could I say then " Ok, contiune on"?
And so he did, running around and around, talking and talking about nothing at all.
Sometimes I feel like that is all I do too, run around and around, talking about nothing. When I catch little moments like this it brings it all back in focus.
Have a great day!!!!!

New Little Toy

I got a islice, it is so neat. It is to cut wrapping paper and we all know that the little gismos never work, they snag the paper or make it rip. This works different, it just glides right over top of the paper and cuts it like your trimmer cuts your scrapbook paper and because it is a ceramic blade it won't cut you and never gets dull. I think it will be great for the kids. I tried it to see if it would cut me and I turned it every which way and it wouldn't cut me. It is also magnetic, so I can hang it on the fridge and not worry about it getting lost in the dreaded junk drawer. I think it is my new favorite thing right now. LOL

Favorite Bible Story

Over at Faith Sisters we had a challenge about our favorite bible story. I decided to use this one on my boys.I asked each of them what their favorite bible story was and why. I love to catalog what they are thinking right then and see how it changes from time to time. It is amazing how their little minds work and I love to watch them grow and mature, except that means they aren't babies anymore. So why don't you give it a shot and come on over to Faith Sisters and show us what you have created.

A Few Cards

Made a few cards today and I thought I would share. I love making cards to send out to people. Some people feel like handmade cards are not appreciated enough for the effort but I strongly disagree. If I can make someone feel even the smallest bit special because I sent them a handmade it is worth the effort. I have rarely sent someone a card and not had them thank me or recognize it as handmade. I also love making them because I can use up a lot of my scraps. The only paper I ever use, besides the base of the card, are scraps. Makes me feel like I am being cost efficient. LOL Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Restore My Soul

Here is what I created for my first official challenge over at Faith Sisters. The challenge was to create something using the scripture from Psalms 23 2-3. When I read the scripture the passage that said "he leads me beside still waters" jumped out at me. I have a lot of trouble going to sleep at night, I have trouble shutting everything off in my head. LOL So I decided to make this journal to write my worries in and hand it all over to God. He can handle anything and only wants us to ask for his help. This helps me to have the "still waters". If you would like to join in the challenge at Faith Sisters just follow the link below. Everyone there is so warm and welcoming.

The challenge is to create a layout about a time when the Lord restored your soul or a layout pertaining to these scriptures Psalm 23:2-3.


I submitted to be on Scrap N Supply Shack's design team and they chose me. I am supper excited, they are just starting out with the monthly kits but from what I have seen they are going to take off fast. The chosen a wonderful group of ladies to be on the design team and I can't wait to get to know everyone. Here is the kit for August and September, sadly I won't be designing with these kits. I will start with the October kit. To purchase these kits click on the link below and it will take you to the web site.
They are working on getting a gallery and forum up and running so watch for the links.

Hello Faith Sisters!

As a part of our second year on the internet we have been thinking and praying about how we can be of more help to people around the world. It only felt fitting that we sponsor a child from World Vision!

Her birthday is even on OUR birthday! August 31st!
She just turned 5 years old. :)

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.

We are so excited and blessed to introduce you to our child!!!
World Vision Online Donations height=49

Congratulations Faith Sisters!

You have sponsored Genesis from Chile
Genesis lives with her parents, 1 sister, and 1 brother. Her parents struggle to provide for the family. Her father is an agriculture worker and her mother takes care of the household. Despite their efforts, it is difficult to meet the family's needs.

Genesis is growing up in a rural community that spans the plains and the higher elevations of the Nahuelbuta Mountains. Housing is diverse. Some are regular housing units with dirt floors while others are simple lean-to dwellings. Beans, potatoes, vegetables and wheat tortillas comprise the family diet. Meat is very scarce. The weather is temperate and humid, with rain from March to December.

Genesis is not in school at this time. She likes to play with dolls. She helps at home by running errands. She is in satisfactory health.

Your sponsorship commitment will help provide Genesis and her community with greater access to clean water, improved health care and hygiene. Your support assists in helping farmers to grow better crops with improved seeds. Parents are learning to operate small businesses to become more self-sufficient. We are thankful for your commitment and your prayers so these precious children and their families are able to experience the love of God and life in all its fullness.

If you would like to help Faith Sisters provide support to Genesis and her family please consider sending your donation to us thorough the link below and we will make sure that the money goes toward our sponsor child and her community!

Thank you!
