Scrap Of Faith Retreat Layouts

Finally have had time to upload LO's from the Scrap of Faith retreat. I am very excited to tell you that I completed 4, yes you read right 4, Layouts. As most of you know I am an off the page artist so to do this many LO's in one weekend was a big thing for me.

The theme for the weekend was His Princess so this first LO is to celebrate that I am Gods child, He is the King that makes me his Princess.
Don't you just love the BLING (I do).





This Lo is for a challenge on Scrap of Faith this month (will upload it soon )
http://scrapoffaith.blogspot.com/
had to scrap a prince in your life, with lots of bling and no patterned paper, could stamp you own and I did that on the bottom - I used a Stamp from the gorgeous Christian stamp set from Scripture by design http://www.scripturebydesign.com.au/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10&products_id=47 and added lots of bling to it (thanks Lou).


This LO was from last months challenge on SOF. I had to scrap about my family and shat it meant to grow up in a Christian/non christian home. This was quite a hard LO to do as I had to face a few facts and write down things that I don't want everyone to read. But God really challenged me to do this one. in fact there is nothing about the LO that is me - I hate Brown and yellow and I think the braid I used is quite revolting BUT it all came together to make a LO that I am very happy with. And yes I do really love it. Did I mention that I was working on it at 1am - I gave up at 2am and got up at 6am in the morning to finish the journaling - which I found to be the hardest part. This was also the LO I shared in our worship service. Tracey asked us all to bring something to share that we had created over the weekend that God had put on our heart to share with others. I would really like to thank Ali for her encouragement to finish the journaling on this one. Love you beautiful girl.

Now this Layout I really love. It was done in Bev's Class - check out her great work.
She started by showing us how to make out own paper using a template, stamps and glimmer mist.
Don't I make a pretty princess, LOL. AS my page says I am blessed and I am filled with joy because I am the daughter of the most high King.
Thank you for visiting my blog, don't foget to leave me a message.
