MONDAY'S Challenge

Today's challenge is to isolate an element in a piece of patterned paper, cut it out, and use it on a layout (or card). In the sample, you can see the leaf cut from a lovely piece of Scenic Route paper.

Patterned paper is super usable, especially when you see it as not only a full sheet, but also as individual elements, and all their possibilities.

Enjoy creating and then be sure to share your work with Tammy and everyone at Scrap'n Memories!

Card Quickie

Have you seen this sheet of * I LOVE BUGS* cardstock stickers by Karen Foster Design at the store?

Well, even if bugs aren't your thing, don't overlook these stickers any longer! A few weeks ago my four year old was in Scrap'n Memories with me and he latched on to these stickers. (He has a growing collection of stickers.) I let him get them and after we got them home and I really took a look at them, I realized I was going to need my own sheet...they are too cute. :)

Here's my quickie card with just one sticker! (You can click on both images to see a larger version.)

PS The patterned paper is Scenic Route.

Hope you all had a great day! We have a wonderful day at the store.

Pam Byrd helped several ladies create some great Fall and Halloween pages using lots of Heidi Grace papers. Now all they need to do is take some great pictures.
Dana Beckman showed several of us ladies how to use alcohol inks! This was great! We had so much fun learning all the products you can use them on. We used silk leaves, some kind of silver tape from Home Depot, plastic, metal and acrylics! If you have never used these products before stop by the store and I will show you how. It is messy but oh so much fun!

Invite Him to be....

a part of your daily small decisions.

I like to listen to a church in Tx sermons, however today I ran across the Women's Magazine they have. It really hit home with me and I would like to share.

We as women are always so busy trying to do it all from taking care of our children, husbands jobs and what ever else comes our way that we do not take the time to ask God for the little things. We think he can only help us with the big things.

In the article it talks about a women who her and her husband had just finished a financial course and had made a commitment to not spending any extra money if possible. Her son reminded her that morning that he had to have a plant for school. Pay day was still a few days away so she was trying to wait as long as she could to purchase the flower.
This day was also an appreciation day for the Volunteers at the school. As she dropped off her son, he said mom do not forget my flower. She told him she would go after her meeting and asked him what color of flower he wanted. He told her red and also asked if she could get him a packet of sunflower seeds as it was his teacher favorite flower.
She went into the cafeteria, where they decorated it nicely for them and the food was wonderfully displayed.
She said she was asking God to help her find a table to sit and she saw a young women who husband was a pastor at a small church and they just moved into a new building. She sat down and tried to talk with her but the lady did not seem to want to talk.

As the meeting was ending they started giving away door prizes and one lady at the table won some bath items and this lady won a T-Shirt that said "Somebody stop me before I volunteer". The lady with the bath items went on and on about not needing these so I asked her if she would like to trade and she did. Other ladies at the table won items too. One of these was a plant and you guessed it, it was a red flower. She went on about how it would be dead in a week, so I asked her to trade and she was more than willing.
As we were leaving they said to please take a packet of seeds in the displays..I am sure you have guessed it was the sunflower seeds. She could not believe what God had done for her that morning.
Remember she asked God to sit her by someone that she might encourage and since the lady did not seem to want to talk she figured she just missed what God meant.
She went home and told her husband about the flower and seeds and after finishing the story she heard God say "You still don't get it". She asked him what he meant and he said.."Remember what you asked me before you sat down? You wanted to know what table to sit at. You choose the right table, but not for the reason you think. I didn't want you to visit with the pastor's wife; I wanted you to sit there so I could bless you!"
We think most of the time that God has time for our BIG issues, however he wants to help us with it all our issues big or small. How many times have I missed the picture because I did not think he would help with the small task I had that day.
Hopefully we can all take something from this story (me included) and invite him to be a part of our daily small decisions.
