Wow I just realized it had been 6 weeks since I had been on here. I have been busy getting Christmas sign ups done at the Salvation Army. I have been scrapbooking and wanted to share a few LO’s with you. The first one I did for the quote/Scripture challenge I am in charge of at MooTwo. Here is the LO.

I used a darling kit from Deli Scraps by Min found at MooTwo


This next one is done from the Teddy Bear Tea in Anchorage which helps to provide Life Changing programs by The Salvation Army.

Can you believe summer is gone?

Wow I can’t believe it is autumn all ready. The trees are turning yellow, orange, and red. The cool crisp air has returned, and the leaves are falling. We have moved to a bigger place and are getting settled. I know it will be nicer especially for my husband because both cars fit under the carport now. No more cleaning the snow off.

We have started the “40 days of love” at church. I am hoping that it will bring us all closer as a family in Christ. It is very interesting, based on the book called “the relationship principles of Jesus” by Tom Holladay. It is by Rick Warren, the author or Purpose Driven Life.

I have been trying to catch up on scrapbooking from moving, and have gotten a few LO’s done. Here are a few to show you.

Do you believe it is June already. The last week of May was quite busy. We celebrated Anniversary week with our youth groups at the Salvation Army. We went on a hike on Tuesday and toured the Tsunami Warning center on Friday. It is one of 2 that are in the United States. After the tour we went back to the church for a movie, the kids chose to watch Snow Buddies. Thursday was our Home League trip and we drove to Sheep Mountain Lodge for lunch and stopped back at the Matanuska Glacier on the way home. I have finished a LO using a lovely dainty kit called Tatianna by GaPScraps aka Gail P at MooTwo.  Here is my LO of my Great Grandma Skiff.

Where does the time go?

I just don't know where the time has gone. I have been busy with several different things. I did the message at church on Mother's Day because our Officers (pastors) were on vacation. I have been competing in MooTwo's CT team competition. The last week is done, but the final voting has not started yet. I have also been accepted as a CT for Crystal Jozlin. You can find her kits here.
And this LO was done with her kit called A Night in the Spotlight.

Things had been disheartening when The Scrapping Garden closed. The plan to open a different site did not go well either. But some of the designers are still around the digitscrap world. Pamela Yates has moved to e-scape & scrap and also a new site sumscrappers
She does not have all her kits up in either store, but she does have Hoppy Spring in both and this is a LO done with that kit.

Well, that is about all for now. It has been very lovely here weather wise and quite hard to stay inside. I will try not to have so much space in between this post and the next one. God bless each one.

Easter celebration

We had a great day at church Easter Sunday. We started with a sunrise service, then ate breakfast, had Sunday School and our morning worship service. We then had fellowship with more food after church. We also had a baby dedication. The day was filled with the good news about Jesus Christ and His resurrection. There were not to many kids today, but I pray that they thought about the real reason we celebrate the day.

The LO below is of the little one that got dedicated. The kit is Framed Memories by Karen Kleinman which can be purchased at decopages here.

Get Ready for Studio Go

This week it is spring break and so we have decided to hold vacation Bible school. The chapel is all decorated and ready for this exciting VBS called Studio Go. It is along the lines of a game show and I think will be lots of fun. The theme verse is Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
There are some challenges, a daily reminder game, fun songs, and cool crafts. The kids will learn about Gideon, Esther, and Jesus. Throughout the week we will be talking about some of the missions that the Salvation Army has and what we do around the world. I will be putting up scrapbook LO's and lots of pictures at the end of the week.
I do ask for your prayers for one of our church members. Theron Bond lost his wife today to cancer. This was his second wife, his first was killed years ago in a car accident. I know that she was ready to go home to meek Jesus, but I also know there was some concern for a few of the kids in that they needed to know Jesus as their savior. Please pray for Theron that God would guide him in witnessing even now.
More later, please keep our VBS in your prayers.

A sad day for digital scrapping

It is with sadness and a heavy heart that I must tell you that due to the economy woes, The Scrapping Garden is closing in a few weeks. This has been like a family for me, we have laughed, cried, and chatted together, many of us have become very close. It is also the place where I first learned about digital scrapping, became a CT, and I am going to really miss it. I will post other sites that I use especially those of the ones that I will be still CT'ing for. There are some great deals over there at TSG so go and check it out before many of the kits are gone for good. I guess that is all for now so that I don't start crying all over the key board. Have a great day.

This has been some day to end out February. We had plans to go into Anchorage for a parade, dog sled races, Native dancing, and outhouse races. The weather unfortunately did not cooperate. To make matters worse, I had 3 little girls from church stay with us last night so that they could go. They were quite disappointed. The weather was not looking good, but we loaded the car and started our travels. About 20 miles out, the roads got worse, the visibility got worse, and people were landing in the ditch on the side of the road, in fact, there were about 7 cars in a 1 mile stretch that had just gone in the ditch right before we arrived at that location. We went down to an off ramp and turned around for home. It is a good thing we did, because as the day progressed so did the severity of the weather. It snowed about 8 inches today in a 10 hour period. The kids went out and played in the snow and then their mom decided they should come on home instead of stay tonight and go to church tomorrow. That really disappointed them, but their mom was concerned for their safety. By the time I was able to unwind enough to get on the computer, I realized I had not uploaded my color challenge mini kit at TSG and had no preview. So I started working on it, and nothing seemed to go right. I finally got it done, but it was quite late. Anyway, the name I chose for it was "Sweet Attitude" because even with all that took place today, that is what I know God would want me to have.

Because of all the scares about 4 shared, I tried something different this time. To download the files, you can go here
If you have any trouble, leave me a comment here or email me and I will try and get it to you another way.

February is flying by

Do you believe it is the 25th of February 2009. It seems like only yesterday the year was just beginning. I am wanting to share a few things with you that I have read. First is from a book by John Ortberg called "When the game is over, it all goes back in the box." He says, "When my son John was very small, he loved to play with machines and gadgets by the hour. One day when he was 3, he had been working with a tape recording for an hour or so. Finally, he looked at his mom and said, "Mom, you know what the trouble with life is?" "No, I don't. What's the trouble with life?" Then a 3 year old boy sitting on the floor, who had thoroughly reflected on both Fisher-Price technology and the condition of human existence, made one of the most profound observations of life that I have ever heard: "The trouble with life," he said, "is that it doesn't have a rewind button."
That had stuck with me for the past 3 weeks since I read, it. My prayer for myself is that I don't act in a way that would cause me to wish I could rewind. I hope that all I do and say is for God's glory and points to Jesus not me.
The second thing I read in a devotion a few days ago and it says. Dr. M. R. De Haan, founder of RBC Ministries, kept a motto in his office; "Perhaps Today." When we make our daily plans, are we aware that Christ may return? ARe we prepared to meet Him? Matthew 24:44 says to be ready for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. IF Christ comes today, will you be ready to meet Him? Perhaps Today

And now for my most recent LO's. I have now been asked to do CT LO's for Karen Kleinman in addition to Scrapping Garden, Pat Hall, and Lise Lotte Sunesen. Here are the last few I have done.

Davids Determination is done with Karen Kleinman's new kit called Exquisite Garden.
you can find the elements here, and the papers here.
Mara and Grandma Steele is done with Vintage Valentine by April Sevigny and Marsha Connell(aka froggypond)

February is half over already

I just don't know where the time is going. It seems like just yesterday we were sitting in the house wishing it was not so cold so we could see the New Year's Eve fireworks. I can't believe it is already February 18th. I have been busy scrapbooking at The Scrapping Garden.
This month I worked with Kakliedesigns lovely kit called Soft Fancy Fleurons.
Here are the LO's I did using this kit. One is a scraplift, and one is using a template for a challenge at pickleberrypop.

Our youth groups Valentine's party. Playing a game called "Heart Hop."

My daughter Jessica

The other kit I worked with is Pat Hall's Friends Indeed and add on.
Here is one of the LO's using this kit.

freebie kit

preview of the mini kit I did for this months color challenge at the Scrapping Garden. You can read about the challenge for February here.

You can download the kit here

One month down can you believe it

I can't believe January is over. It has been one wild ride here in Alaska. We started out the year with 10 days of frigid cold weather. It was in the double digits below the whole 10 days. Then all of a sudden we got what is known as the Pineapple Express and for a whole week it never got below 40 degrees. Yes that's right 40's in January in Alaska. Now it is back to snow and a volcano eruption watch. Like I said, one wild ride.

I have been busy scrapping and want to share a few LO's and also my color challenge freebie. I am privelaged to be on the CT team for The Scrapping Garden, Pat Hall, and Lise Lotte Sunesen. I love to scrapbook and really enjoy showing off the fine kits available. This month I used Kakleidesigns Love Dictionary and PDDesigns Oh Happy Day. Love's Dictionary elements are found here and papers here.
