I am loving all the public holidays. On Saturday Nadia went to a kitchen tea and pamper party and Kobus Jr and Wynand went to a bachelor's party...so the grand parentals stayed home and looked after our little ones.
Last week I found some time to do some projects. This is sketch #116 by Liz Chidester of The Scrappiest.
I made this layout of Karen's (Momagain@40) daughter Mieka.
I flipped the sketch and used Sassafras Lass Indie Girl papers. I made a bling circle instead of a paper circle and the flowers are Prima.
This is The Scrappiest Sketch #118
I thought that this photo was perfect for this layout.
I cut the felt stars with my Revolution die cutter. The paper and trims are My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy and the little sheep EK Success Jolie's. The alphabets are American Craft.
Then I have been roped into a Scrapbooking workshop at our church next Saturday. I was told this morning that I will be doing two classes with a total of 65 ladies. Oh, my shattered nerves...I have never done this before! The budget is R40 per person and if you do scrapping you will know that I will have to do a lot of fancy footwork to be able to make up a page-kit for that. Tomorrow it is "a shopping I will go":-)
This is the inspiration prompt for the latest challenge at Get Picky.
I just couldn't resist putting in a dash of red. I used papers from My Minds Eye's "Love me do" range. I used a sketch by Allison Davis.
I have just noticed how perfect the colours of my layout for the Scrappiest sketch 118 is also fitting into the Get Picky challenge. I decided to enter both of them in the Get Picky Challenge.
A word I want to take with me today and this week is: 2 Corinthians 5:7 - We walk by faith, not by sight.
If we keep waiting on inspiration from the Lord before we act, then nothing will happen. Get up and "do it" with or without inspiration and let the Lord bless you after the fact. Unless and until we get active in the Lord's work, we most likely will drift away from Him. Inspiration will most likely come during or after your "work" not before.
