"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

BIRD OF PARADISE / WFCo New Release, TPE #100 & JAI #67...


Good morning~ hope your weekend was awesome! We stayed pretty busy, LOTS of laundry was washed, folded & refolded (thanks to Alex & Maisie!), ironed... ah the joys of motherhood! I have a couple new images out today at the Wax Fruit Company, one of which I used for today's new Pink Elephant challenge! It's called "Bird of Paradise", quite an original name, no?



Our sponsor at the Pink Elephant for this challenge is our very own Trudi, owner of the newly opened Pink Petal Designs, whose talents include hand dyeing this seam binding ribbon in so many gorgeous colors! I HAD to have the orange when I saw it... YUMM!

I also played along with the sketch from Just Add Ink!




Hope you get to play along with us @ the Pink Elephant!

BOOKS / DHD Speed Scrap...


We had the regularly scheduled Speed Scrap at DHD this weekend... LOVE IT! It's like a mom's night out for me! Only I get to sit on my couch in my pj's, drink coffee, watch TV with the hubby & mingle & scrap with cool ladies online! Oh, and don't forget the nibbling of chocolate! Speed Scrap is a wild ride, you show up & don't know 'where' you're going until the very end & then you're 'there'!



I used Karen Funk digital kit, Blossom...


Bye for now...

ALL ABOUT ALEX / MScraps May Scraplift & DHD May


Last November we went up to the VA hospital (4 hours away) for Jeff's appointment. We make the trip twice a year. This time Jeff wanted to stay in a different hotel (nightmare) and we ended up checking out & getting a refund after 1/2 an hour (long story). BUT, while we were there, Alex was enthralled by the mirrored closet doors & I took a couple cute pics. I loved this one & decided to use the Design House Digital's May Inspiration Challenge to make a page. I also used the May Scraplift Challenge from Memory Scraps.


I got the word art by using the site, Wordle.


I saw it a couple years ago, and remembered it when I saw this challenge! You can plug in your colors/words. I put in a brown background & when I was finished, I took a screen shot of it, that's the only way to save it, unfortunately. When I put it into PE, I magic erased the background and then "weathered" the image... clear as mud, right?



Bye!

DADDY'S GIRL / SBC Sketch #252 & K. Funk New Release...


Karen Funk's newest digi scrap kit, Claire, is just GORGEOUS! I couldn't resist dragging out some pics of Maisie and her daddy from when she was only a month or so old. Every night he'd sit and hold her as she slept and most of the time he'd fall asleep, too! Sweet! I guess that's why she's such a daddy's girl now - lol!


I found a new "playground" - Scrapbook Challenges, and this sketch is from one of their sketch challenges for this month...


And here's the beautiful kit I used...



Thanks for stopping by!
