Sunday Scrappin'...

Woohoo!!  Finally, after a week of no scrappin', I was able to sit down and scrap!  This is my "me" time and when I don't get my "me" time, "me" is not happy!!!  hehe!!!  I have been participating in Simply Obsessed's "Back to School - School of Scrap" challenges.  They have been so much fun!! As you'll shortly see, I've scrapped some pictures I normally would not have scrapped.  But I'm glad I did!!  

My first assignment was English.  We were given several journaling prompts and had to choose one.  I chose "Proud Moments"!  Here I am, high hair and all, during my senior year in high school.  Don't laugh!!!  hehe!  I used the September sketch from My Sketch World to create this layout.

 
Supplies Used: Fancy Pants (Clair de Lune) patterned paper, diecuts, rick rack, Basic Grey letter stickers, Prima flowers, American Craft brad, Making Memories velvet brad, Colorbox Ink (chestnut roan), and Zig Writer (chocolate)

For our second assignment, Science, we were to do a layout including mammals (other than humans).  I used some pictures during our trip to Lowry Park Zoo last year.  These had been sitting here collecting dust for the longest already.  I used Sketch #64 from Sketch It Out to create this layout.


Supplies Used:  Basic Grey (Archaic Collection) patterned paper, diecut stickers, letter stickers, Zig Writer (chocolate), and  Colorbox Ink (Chestnut Roan)

I also created this for one the Scrap4Life September "Card" Challenge.  I was able to get 4 cards done with my leftovers from the S4L August Kit - Celebrate!  Not bad, huh?!



And now I leave you with the following card I created for the Faith Sisters' Scripture Challenges.  Last week's word was "Blessed"!  Everyday I thank God for the blessings he has granted me!  I have never felt so blessed than I do at this point in time in my life.  God has blessed me with a beautiful family, husband, home.  And the list goes on and on!  Today, as I was watching Carlos read a book to the kids before bedtime, I could not resist my smile!  I felt blessed!  Here is my card that I can now add to my other cards:  



John 20:29 "...Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

Remember to Thank God everyday for the blessings he has granted you.  God Bless You!
