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!

Raindrops on Roses Scrapbook Page Holder

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I have a fun project today using the beautiful Raindrops on Roses Collection from Heartfelt Creations!  I bought this 6" x 6" Scrapbook Page Holder at Michaels and thought it would be perfect for the 6" x 6" designer paper blocks in the collection!

Here is the holder showing the cover decorated with lace, ribbon bows, and pearls.  I used the beautiful Raindrops on Rosettes image and Raindrops on Roses Die behind it for the front cover.

Here is a close up of the image that I stamped on Solar White Card stock and colored with pencils and mineral spirits.  It's been a very long time since I colored images with skin and I'm definitely out of practice!

 I just love the beautiful colors of these designer papers and tried to color the image to match.  You can see the two new dies behind the image, a green oval shaped lacy die and then two of the other die cut with white.  These dies are so beautiful and have so many possibilities to create with!

These are photos of the individual pages I made with the designer papers.  Each is different and made with the card fronts, tags, and journals blocks from the papers.  Very quick and easy to put together!  You can always add embellishments after adding your photos!

Be sure to visit the HC Blog today to see what the designers have for you!

I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #120 - Anything Goes
