Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Elphine House Australia Challenge #6

Hello Everyone!

There's a new challenge starting today at Elphine House Australia! This one is to use leftover scraps on your creation. The design team has come up with some beautiful samples for you to check out which you can find here. Here is my sample using a new stamp called "Laura: Flower Girl" done by Elisabeth Bell!

The front:

The inside:

Such a cute image! I decided to use very soft colors on this. The background paper is my first ever digi paper that I got free on Bearly Mine Design's website which you can find here. I love this paper, so nice that she has it for free! I also used some old scraps from Vintage Rose Punch Out Pack from Colorbok that I have had forever. The image was done on solor white from Neenah and colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I used my favorite punch Deco Fan from Martha Stewart. I got the white flowers on the front from Michael's wedding supplies section. I love the middle of them which I made out of a jewelry spacer and a brad. Then I drizzled some diamond stickles on them. The "pearls" around the image were done with Liquid Pearls from Ranger.

There are lots of details on this one, which I will completely list when I post this on my Split Coast Stampers' Gallery. Thank you for looking and make sure to join in the fun on Elphine House's Blog. Use any Elisabeth Bell stamp/image and your scraps!!!

Have a wonderful day! Blessings!
