Friends, love and Faith Blog Hop

I am super excited to be part of My Paper Tree House Studio's Friends, Love, and Faith Blog Hop. Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God. United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. If you are hopping with us, you should have hopped over from (Jennifer Evans). If you happened to just come across this post and you want to join in on the fun, make sure you jump over to the beginning so that you do not miss out: Paper Tree House Studio.

We're celebrating the theme of friends and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:

"...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

First, we would like to take a moment to thank our generous co-sponsors: Zutter, Paper Trunk, Create 365, (I will complete the list and you will be able to update this section.) Together with Paper Tree House Studio, these companies have donated some wonderful prizes for today's blog hop.
Prizes? Oh, yeah! There will be three lucky grand prize winners for today's event.

To enter, simply hop through the blogs and take note of all of the participating DT members of Paper Tree House Studio, and make sure to jot down the "blessed words" they will have in their post, and leave a comment on their posts. Once you gather all of the words, you will have another special Scripture to inspire you to create while leaving His legacy. Then send us an email at listing each of the staff members who participated in today's hop and the completed Scripture. It's that easy. All entries must be received by Monday, February 28, 2011 at 12 noon, EST and seven winners will be randomly chosen to win.

reduce, reuse, and recycle it...

that what I love to do with scrapbooking items. So it was perfect when I was given a challenge over at Tallyscraper to reuse scrapbooking packaging. I have so many that I just put away. In my layout I used the packaging from Jillibean Soup's corrugated shapes and the pins. I knew I would eventually use it along with the product. It went perfect with the Websters Pages Hollywood Vogue paper. loved it!!!

Creating, Birthdays, and Blog Hop

I am really having so much fun enjoying my ME time lately, the best part of it is creating to hang on my living room wall. Here is another project created for my wall, I used some tattered angels mists and Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere the pattern papers to the canvas.
I also wanted to share some birthday party pics of Elisa and friends. I want to thank Michele Marin from Creative Cakes for my daughters fabulous cake! Thanks to Maria for helping me by decorating the fans, umbrealla and hats for me, and creating my birthday banner using my Cricut Imagine. Love that machine!!!

As many of you know I am part of My Paper Treehouse, and this month we are having another Blog Hop, below are all the details. Hoping you could join us.

In 2009 SNR magazine did something amazing.. they put out a
call for women that loved the Lord and were willing to be loud
about it by joining them in a blog hop. They believed only a few
people were going to join, but to their surprise hundreds of
women did Paper Tree House Studio is trying to do just that...
we are trying to see how many of you paper crafters out there
love God and are not ashamed to admit it. 

If you are one of these brave girls, we want you to join us on this
hop.We will have TONS of prizes, along with GRAND prizes to
offer. We will be partnering up with some of your favorite
manufacturers in order to bring you the absolute best... It will be
a day filled with  Friends, Love, and of course Faith!

If you are interested in being part of this blog hop please e-mail with the Subject Line "Blog Hop".
Once you email me, I will send you all of the information you will
need. The hop will begin on February 25-28 and in order for you
to be part of the hop you need to email me by February 16. I am
praying to the Lord that His children will once again have the
boldness to stand up and represent Him with the talents He has
provided.. :)

Make sure to take the banner and post it on your blog with a link
back to this post.  I would love to see hundreds of women
participate once again, but I need your help. :)

{love} is in the air..

As many of you know  I have been working on some canvas's no not painting, but creating layouts on canvas. Used some Modge Podge Glossy. Loved it. I just got the recent pattern papers from Websters Pages can you say beautiful, but I was working on a canvas that was 11x14 and of course papers come 12x12 so what is a girl to do. Rip it, tear it and just glue it on. I used 3 lines from Websters Pages for my canvas. loved how they all color coordinated. Hope you like it as much as I do!! Have to get a better photo, but was too excited and wanted to share.
