Blessings & Challenges

Hello All !!
It's beginning to get really busy around my camp and I am getting antsy for school to start.  Being a home school mom can be exciting and scary at the same time.  You want to make sure everything is in order, you don't want to miss anything in your child's curriculum and this year I have my first Senior!! Talk about pressure and it is crafting that helps to ease some of the tension.  I so enjoy being a designer for The Scrapbooking Factory...it's like a little release because I enjoy what I'm doing.  However nothing can surpass a good daily dose of GOD's Word to keep me grounded.  I am so grateful that through all of the pressure and headaches and chaos, I know that the LORD is right there holding me up.  My power scripture is Isaiah 41:10:

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed for I am Thy GOD:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness.
 Well Today I wanted to share a challenge that I participated in with Crafting By Design.  We were challenged to use scraps for CAS (clean and simple) Card.  The challenge was specific as we had to use 3 patterned strips, one solid, include ribbon (eek I forgot the ribbon) and a sentiment.  Well guess what I was ready.  You know the top portion of DP that you usually cut off but shows what the design of the paper is on the other side.  Well I just can't see clear to through them away sometimes because their so cute and I just know ONE DAY I'll be able to use them.  Well my day came and I made my card, HURRAY!!!  Here's my project:

The paper is by My Minds Eye called Lost & Found

This was truly a fun challenge!  

Well That's it for now.  Currently I am working on Layout kits for The Scrapbooking Factory that will be for sale at CKC - San Marcus Scrapbooking Convention.  Pray for me that my creative juices will continue to flow and that I'll create some fabulous layouts.

Until Next Time 'ciao Bella's
