Crafty weekend

It was a busy weekend, but you better believe I made time to play in the craft room.  Let me share three projects I worked on.  They are all challenges going on at Scraps of Color.  The first one is to use a Robert Jackson digital.  The theme is "It's In the Song".  Let me tell you when I first purchased this digital, the song that came to my mind was "Standing in the Need of Prayer" by John P Kee.  You can listen to it here.  I'm a witness God does hear and answer prayers.
Used Bo Bunny Faith Collection
Our Daily Bread Filigree Frames
Bic Mark it markers
This one is my brothers birthday card.  He's going to be touched by the inside.  
So proud of the man he has become.
Used The Paper Studio Simple Elegance paper
Spectrum Noir markers
 This tag is used with corrugated board painted with Adirondack Metallics Gold paint.  
I even pulled out the Metallic Pearls I've been hoarding.
Used a few items received from my crafty friends!

Crafting My Love

This layout is inspired from a Black History Month BINGO Challenge going on at Scraps of Color that I am hosting.  It's a 6x6 layout of my LOVE for crafting.  This photo was taken last year at my church mother's 90th birthday party! In this design I used Simple Stories Life in Color paper stack, The Paper Studio brads, Studio Calico chipboard stickers, Flea Market paper clip, Sizzix file folder die cut, Recollection doily and Martha Stewart edge punch.

RAK Swap - Mini Album

Check out this 6 x 6 Interactive Mini Album I created for my swap partner at Scraps of Color!  Ruby Wilkes was my partner and she loves to travel.  The beautiful papers I've been hoarding used for this traveling theme mini album are Echo Park's (Get Away) paper stack.  Everything was made from scratch and to tell you how determined I was to get it done....It was finished in one night.  Oh Yes!!!!  The adrenaline in my little crafty heart was pumping up something powerful! The only thing I hate is that I didn't write down the measurements. Oh well....I am definitely a tea girl, but for some strange reason I was craving coffee that day.  Should I say anything more?  LOL  Hope you enjoy viewing it!   Time to organize my craft studio for the next project.

Daniel Fast

I've joined the Daniel Fast.  My cousin asked me to start one week later so she would have a prayer partner and I called my soror to join so we three are having a great start in the Lord in 2018!  I haven't been tempted eating outside fruits and vegetables.  Prayers have already been answered! The altered journal was designed to write notes of my journey of how the Lord blessed, scriptures including personal notes to the Lord, and my meal plan. My word for 2018 is PEACE.  Yes PEACE within and PEACE in the world. Lord have mercy.....The tag I made for my journal is evidence of the word.

My journal and tag
Digital Image is Robert Jackson Fine Arts

Close up of my tag.  It reminds me of the Mother's Board.

Oh Yes!

Happy Founders Day 2018

My friend Mary Joyce at Scraps of Color gifted me with these dies and I'm having way too much fun.  I used my sorority colors Crimson and Cream with a neutral color black to create this card.  Sketch Saturday made it easy with their sketch challenge.  Thought I would have a little more fun adding my die cuts with a goal of getting together more often from Cut It Up.  My sorority sisters are all busy ladies, but sometimes you have to get away from it all and take time to fellowship.  Craftycatz has a twist with One for the Ladies so this is my creation.

What a Prize!

I was a winner at World Card Making Day!  It made my day.  It was that kind of week when I had so many deadline projects and goals to meet at work, personal goals to stay focus with and trying to stay calm in all of it got me feeling pretty exhausted.  But there was a Silver Lining.....When I arrived home late last night, I was thrilled to pick up this huge box filled with goodies.  Let me share it with you!  You will be seeing some projects real soon.  I don't have any of these items in my stash so I can't wait to play in the craft room.  WOW, What A Blessing!  Sad to see so many craft stores have closed their doors, but is still striving and inspiring us to craft!  Got to love that place!!!!!!!!!!!!
