Bible Journaling Sunday ~

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to create a bible journaling page today using my new #creativeretreat kit for the month of August. It arrived while I was out of town with my scrubby (scrapbooking hubby) and I am excited to finally have found some time (6am - ugh) to give it a go! 

For some reason this was a challenging entry for me at I just felt like going back to the very beginning...
I really like the stamps and the lettering font in this months kit, it's really pretty. 
Thanks for taking a few moments to read my blog today, I hope your day of rest is a peaceful one.

Happy Hugs,

Ep.#581 ~ Marbling Technique | Colorful Seaons By Stampin' Up!

Fall is in the air, fall is in the air - yippee skippy!
I am sooooo looking forward to creating cards and scrapbook pages for fall and everything that goes along with it. I miss football my fireplace and decking out the house in all the beautiful colors that can only mean one season... FALL!!!
I hadn't done the Marbling Technique is forever so I thought it was high time to bust out my marbles. The beauty of this techqnue is that no two cards will ever be the same! I am anxious to make some pretty Halloween backgrounds using roange and black too, how funky will that be?

I hope you give this fun technique a try, it's super fun and quick as well.
Happy Hugs,

I am in FUNdraising Mode!

Hi Everyone,
I busted out my Cricut machine yesterday (boy, I forgot how fun this thing is...) to make lots of cute images. At the end of this month, I will be setting up for a FUNdraiser to benefit the Troy Family  and my old friend George who is suffering from Maligant Melinoma. Sadly, it spread to George's lymph nods when they found it and recently spread to his pelvic area, 😦

Today I worked on and created a Focal Board to act as the backdrop to the tables which will hold the Silent Auction baskets that will be raffled off.
George's daughter Emily painted a picture of a whale with the tag line "Just Keep Swimming" and so that's what I went with for our theme.
I think it turned out really cute and if you look closely, there is a little Scuba George swimming!
If any of you have an On-line business and would consider making a donation, it would be greatly appreciated. I will be busy putting baskets together and I will post pictures of my Stampin' Up! basket that I am creating as well as a fun Mary Kay basket .
Have a great week friends ~
Happy Hugs,
