My Scrapbook Prayer

On my 'Craft To Do List' has always been a plaque with my blog name.  I envisioned it to have tropical decor and there have been several ideas yet it never came together until now.  Instead of a plaque, I put my heART into a canvas of things that inspired my blog name.  In 2008 I visited Hawaii.  That's the photo on my blog.  I knew I was addicted to Paper crafting when I found three scrapbook stores there. Who does that?   Also that same year my scrapbook group 'The Queen Scrappers' attended the Scrapbook Extravaganza held in Little Rock, AR.  On our road trip back I start writing a poem, which turned out to be 'My Scrapbook Prayer'.  It was featured in Scraps of Color magazine and is my Design Team post for Scraps of Color E:spire.
Recipe ingredients:
Faber Castell gelatos
Tsukineko chalk ink
Color box chalk ink
Stazon ink
Studio 71 canvas paper
Prima Bloom Girl
Canvas Corp - canvas
Recollections stamps, metal and stickers
Webster's Pages fabric sticker and flowers
Prima and Recollection flowers
K & Company Sea Glass chipboards
Making Memories mesh
Martha Stewart butterfly punches

Kimberly watercolor pencils 
 I was trying to justify my addiction and the poem came to light!  Here's a close up of my prayer.
