Fruits of the Spirit

Have you ever had an idea in your mind that you need to get onto paper and you can't do anything else until that has happened. That is where I was at until my new Papertrey Ink package came in. I had their apple set on my list for about a year and finally had a scrapbook page that moved it to the "need" list LOL! Can you even believe that I ordered on the 15th and my package was here on the 18th WOWZIERS!!!!!!

I love Stamp TV and all of the challenges that are on there. Ericka Martin does the scrapbook pages and she is fabulous! Here is STVSCR12
Here is a close up of some of the details on the page. I love the new champagine versa mark ink I got from PTI. Can you see the small flecks of bling in the background. It is so beautiful and subtle. It is a fabulous look. Can you believe that I finally got my very own guidelines 2 stamps set and after drooling over the dsp paper eveyone made with the set the first thing I whip out is the big background grid LOL! I also love the chocolate buttons. They have such character and shine. Isn't that fabulous!
Here is my finished project. Okay now that I look at it, it is not finished. I forgot to put the date on the picture, but I will add that. This was in October 2007.
Izzy was just a year old and she was eating her first apple from our apple tree siting outside with Grandma and Grandpa was there in between bringing loads of corn from the field. She was so relaxed that day munching on her first apple from the tree. It is a memory I will cherish and I thought it was perfect for the verse as well.
I love the felt alphabet and the puffy brown letters as well. It was a ton of fun to put together. The prayers and verse idea came from this fabulous site called Faith Sisters. They are doing a whole serries called "My prayers for you" and I really love it. It is the first thing that got me scrapbooking my little one. One of the gals at my Bible study mentioned leaving a legacy for her daughter when she passed away. It really got me thinking and as you all know I am not a speller, so writing a journal was out, but I loved putting a scrapbook together about my prayers for Izzy.
We leave for vacation on Friday and I have no packing done, Izzy has a double ear infection and I feel not good at all. I went to be last night at 7 and I am heading to bed at 8 tonight trying to kick this quickly.
It's a good life!
