Created a title using a snowboard term

Yes there is a snowboard glossary.
Who knew.
 I did because it seems to be my son's family's
favorite pasttime and I can't keep using the same one over and over
and over and over again.
There are alot of snowboarding photos.
 Love these 2 pictures and I wanted them on the same page
therefore I went to a tried and true design for me.
Because they were two difference sizes its easier for me and my hair
pulling to mat them on one mat.
 Also, the bottom photo had alot of white space going on
and being the brave scrapper that I am - I put the majority
well okay all of my embellishments on the photos.
 Love how it turned out - although I wish I would've noticed
the strip was crooked before the glue dried.
But no matter - it works out mighty fine.
So the title "crunchy kid".
Crunchy in snowboard speak means "cool."
Therefore Miss Amelia is a "cool kid."

Creating a page with a photo collage

I love doing photo collages and I'm searching
for a program that can do it easily.
I'm hunting down a lightroom tutorial because
someday I'm going to have to switch over.
This was printed from Aperture - because I know how to do it there.
There are four 2x3 photos on a 4x6 photo card.
 Love the 8.5x11 Kraft paper and did a bit of background work
using my AC rolling stamp and ranger inks.
I wanted a rugged look because my son and granddaughter are rock climbing.
Evidently snowboarding was not going to happen that day.
 I decided to be lazy and draw "stitching" around the page.
It just needed that something extra to complete it.
It framed out nicely.
I found those transparencies from Studio Calico that
I also forgot about - I have memory issues going on lately.
But I found the stash at the right time for the right page.
Love this series of photos.

Brand new Recollections mists I forgot about

Can you believe that?
Well I stashed them with my stash of inks where
oddly enough they don't fit back into now
and decided they needed to be used.
If you look below in the corner - You see a bit of them
as well as the rolling stamp I used just
to make the background a bit busier
because who doesn't love a busy background.
 I also added some droplets of each colors 
because it looks cool.
 I sprayed and rolled in 3 areas for the triangle.

 I love that huge tag and that is my last one. 
I totally need to get more of those.
Since I have my sewing machine back I decided that some
edging was required and zipped it around 3 times.
Good thing it really didn't need to be straight.
I totally love the dangly threads.

First Bible Journal Entry

This is my first one - other than the cover and I quite 
like how it turned out. 
I used regular enamel paints and alpha stickers I had
in my stash. The banner tag is a design from Penguin Eight.
Head on over to Illustrated Faith  as they have an amazing site
for faith and journaling inspiration.

I chose this verse - well actually it chose me - I use an Oswald Chambers
devotional - My Utmost for His Highest that a dear
friend gifted me. On that
day the verse was Hebrews 11:8. I just love what it said and 
felt compelled to  not only highlight it in the margin
as well as the verse.
The version of the devotional I have was written in the early
19th century so there is an English language
issue that I either look up in the dictionary or on line where
they have a contemporary version that helps with the translation.
I also have a different Bible translation that comes in
handy as well.

I have to admit it was really hard to get started - because its the Bible after all.
But once that first dab of paint hit, it opened up the creativity and
it became easy to highlight and pray over.

First pick of the season

It was sweet, juicy, organic and perfect.
Did I think of taking pictures as we cut into it
and scarfed it down?
Nope.
 And we now have a bumper crop going on.
 There are seven pineapples in various stages
of growth.
 It appears they love the front yard and they love the light from the morning sun.
I cut the tops off of the ripe ones
and clean the pineapple off
 
and put the top in a glass of water and wait
for roots to grow.
