Vacation Bible School

We had an Amazing week at Vacation Bible School with our theme The Ultimate Climb.  My role was the Craft Coordinator and I was truly in my element making packets for 50 children!  Going on the hike I thought of the following crafty items hiking up to meet GOD.  Day 1 Up to Mt. Moriah the children made binoculars out of toilet paper rolls.  Die Cut with A View paper is so strong yet beautiful.  I found the perfect paper stacks in my stash.  A clothes pin was adhered to the middle and fiber used as a strap.

Day 2 Up to Mt. Sinai I wanted to create a frame to show God's creation from the heavens to the ground.  We used our scripture for the week.  This was used with Popsicle sticks and inks (they loved inking!).  They also colored the scenery and the animals and the leaf edge punch was used to show the grass. 
Day 3 Up to Mt. Zion - The City of God we put together a prayer journal.  Got to love the Die Cut with A View paper!  They also included their name in the Spellbinder die along with Prayer Journal.  I used Recollection washi tape and fiber from my stash.  The animal stamps are by Rubber Stampede. It was filled with scriptures and there were two pages which they had to write the letters A-Z and their assignment was to list words they were thankful for. 
Day 4 Up to Mt. Carmel the children made butterflies and the women's group made fans.  I found 100 white cupcake holders at a garage sale!!  Again they inked the edges and center, clothespins, google eyes and stickles.
The Women's group were filled with excitement, because this was their first year to craft.  I used old sheet music from our old church programs and Psalm 96:4 Stampabilities stamp.  They loved the papers.  It was all from Die Cut with a View.  I believe I just about cleaned out of my paper stacks. lol

Day 5 Up to Mt. Tabor - Mountain of Transfiguration we do not have Craft night on Friday.  We focus on Decision night to win souls to Christ.  This was the best year and we are looking forward to next year.

The Haves & Have Not featuring Hanna and Candace

Our last two characters in Scraps of Color relay challenge for The Haves & Have Nots is Hanna & Candace.  We were asked to use a die cut and a scripture for Hanna.  For Candace we were to use a quote with the word money and bling. This was the longest group of characters.  Just by playing along with meeting the deadline with the requirements on each project, you receive all the digitals!   Thanks to Mary Joyce for keeping us inspired and Robert Jackson for his great heART!  You can purchase the images here.

May Guest Designer at Word Art Wednesday

You can't imagine the joy I felt when asked to be Guest Designer at Word Art Wednesday!!!  It was my first challenge to play in 2012.  I was drawn by their inspirational Word Art and have been joining them every since.  There is a saying, "It's a lonely place when no one visits".  One thing I love about Word Art Wednesday Design Team, they consistently  stop by to visit your blog and thank you for contributing to their site. Not only do they create beautiful art, they have big HeARTS!   



When I read the scripture this sweet image by Robert Jackson spoke to my spirit.  Isn't it Heartwarming?  We have to take care of our elderly.  It saddens my heart when I see young people on the news bringing hurt and harm to our seniors.  Instead they should be seeking wisdom and knowledge and blessing them with their time.  I use to crochet before scrapbooking and I remember the quality time I had with my great cousin.  She taught me to cook, sterilize dishes before it was a dishwasher and plant a garden.  They are memories I will cherish forever.

Hope you see your Family/Friendly creations at Word Art Wednesday.  They have also included a free word art to use if you like.  Psalm 33:11





Their friends at Freckled Fawn are offering one person a $15 Gift Certificate to their shop.  Freckled Fawn carries washi tapes, wood chips, cork, metal and so much more.

The Haves & Have Nots featuring Veronica

Robert Jackson gave us David in the last challenge. This week's character in Tyler Perry's The Haves & Have Nots is Veronica.  I'm sure (Angela Robinson) is a nice person in real life, but when she acts the role of Veronica.....She's a bad woman and has truly surprised me. Scraps of Color challenge was to include black and bling.  My goal was an elegant look so I grabbed the last sheet of Webster's Page and used one of Martha Stewart's edge punches.  In my bling stash, I found just two more of the word 'love'.  The ticket was perfect for the way I feel about her, although this would be a lovely card for a couple.  Thanks to Sketch Saturday, they made my design easy to create.
