I Love Spring..

it's my favorite time of year. I love the green, the flowers, the birds,'s wonderful. So I had to create a mini album with the Spring theme. I wanted to do something with just acrylic..... and sewing! What?! You say. Yep, I stitched on my acrylic album. I used the Zutter 4x4 covers and a Teresa Collins Chipboard cover as a pattern. Here's what I came up with.

Don't forget to go visit the The Zutter Zisters to see what the other Zisters having been creating!!!

My Thoughts Are With You

My thoughts are with the Willaerts today. They lost their eldest child, age 5, to a teribbly invasive and incurable brain tumor. In times such as these, my thoughts return to Psalm 23:

The Lord is my sheperd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness foe his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil for Thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil,
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

May God bring you peace and healig during this time.

Cards.....Yes! Cards!

I know, I know. I don't do many cards...and I don't know why. I've got tons of scraps to use. Here are a few I did with the February Kit from The Shaker Box . I love the Shaker Box Kits, they're full of all kinds of goodies and enough stuff to get some serious scrapping done! I did four 12x12 layouts, three cards and two altered items with my kit! And I still have a litle paper left...Wowzers!!!
