As For Me and My House

I went totally insane with the pink last weekend, and I feel like I was slathering it all over everything.  This Bible page was no exception.  As soon as I got the paint on, I thought to myself that this was a terrible mistake, but I went with it.  And funny thing is, I quite liked the happy and bright result!

These little houses were cut from the Crate Paper Good Vibes Paper, Perfection.  I couldn’t get over how cute they were paired with some of the icons from the cardstock stickers set.

I piled on a ton of alphas, which is my absolute trademark.  They are my favorite crafty item!

This was another page that really didn’t require any journaling, because I did some separate prayer time dedicated to my little family.  I’ll share the prayer with you from a great article I read the other day.

“Father, thank you for my family. Lord, you know their hearts. You know their strengths, their weaknesses and every tiny detail about them. God, I pray that You draw them closer to You. Show them who You are. Let them see their need for you, Lord. Capture their hearts and fill them with Your Spirit. Lord, I pray that they would seek You above all else. That as they wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night, You would be on their minds and hearts. That everywhere they go and in everything they do, they would see You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

8 1/2 x 11 Scrapbook Layout using Maggie Holmes Gather and Scraps - Lydia Cost

I was so blessed to find myself with a little scrap-therapy time last week, and it felt so nice to scrap with some actual scraps.  Sometimes it is so nice to step away from design team work and scheduled projects, for a little scrapping that’s just for you.  I forget how amazing it feels to create with no idea of the end result.

I took this amazing photo of a monarch at a local wetlands area, and I knew I wanted to get messy and scrappy with it.  I worked out of a little hexagon box of scraps on my desk, and I even included a piece from our recent modem installation under my photo.

That day I felt like I would have made Suse Fish proud with all my scrap using!

I certainly have to remind myself that creating to simply create is so important for my well-being, and I was really happy with this messy little layout about a simple little butterfly!
