Blog hop, Blog hop, Blog hop!

Welcome to the Scrapping Everyday Miracles September Blog Hop!

Scrapping Everyday Miracles is having a blog hop this weekend and we invite you to join in the fun. We joined forces with 2 Cute Stamps and the SEM Design Team members have all created a project (or two) based on our theme friendship. You can "hop" from blog to blog to check them out!

All you have to do is visit each of the DT's blogs for inspiration, become a follower and leave a comment. There are RAKS to win along the way and if you leave a comment at each blog you could win one of two grand prizes from our sponsors: Artful Delight and 2 Cute Stamps.

Here are the two cards that I made with digital stamps from 2 Cute Stamps:

I will pick at random a poster here on my blog and they will win Creative Juice RAK! Enjoy your hopping!

Your next stop on the hop is Leigh...
Thanks for stopping by!

Camping! and Banana Slugs!

Well, this last weekend we went camping in the Santa Cruz Mts. and you know what that means. Banana slug sightings! We saw four of them this time, all on Sunday morning.  Our friend Fred who was with us got to see one for the first time. I think he was thrilled (ha ha). Here is a layout from when Greg first met up with a banana slug when he was about 20 months old. He was rather horrified!

And just in case you wanted to know more about slime:

And did you know that banana slugs are the second largest slugs in the world? And they can grow up to 10 inches long? Aren't you glad you read all about them now? =) Happy camping!

Challenge #8 at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!

Gosh golly it's been two weeks since I've posted something new! What a busy time of year - so many things gear up in September. I'm happy to announce that there is another challenge posted over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, be sure to click over there and check it out. Here is my layout I did for it:

The journaling is on a tag behind the photo and reads:

This photo was taken about 12 years ago. These days when I look in the mirror, I see some fine lines, a few grey hairs and “baby weight” that‘s still hanging around. In a culture focused on outward apearances, it can be tough to see time marching on. I need to remember that I am perfectly crafted by God and He is continuing to work on my insides no matter what direction my outsides are going!

Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #7!

It's challenge time at Scrapping Everyday Miracles! This was another hard one for me since I am always trying to think three steps ahead of the present. We were challenged to create a layout about focusing on the moment. I made me realize I need to slow down a bit and live more "in the moment". Anyway, go check out the challenge and I hope you enjoy my layout.
