This first LO is one I started a few weeks ago, for the Beyond the Blue journey/comp at Embellished Scrapbook Shoppe. The theme was 'Where do you find your inner peace?'... I decided to do my layout on my God, as He is most definitely my source of peace, when I manage to find some. I used the gorgeous Psalm 23 to go with it all too, and have done some journalling on the inside.
Think I'll finally upload one to the BtB gallery now! :)
Here's the inside, when the white piece opens up. The rest of PSalm 23 on the left, and my journalling on the right.
My journalling reads:
I find my peace in my God. He is my refuge. Without HIm, I don't know hiw I would live. When the kids are giving me grief, when the house is a mess, when my schedule is too tight... I put on some worship music, close my eyes and give it all over to God. He takes me out of my mess, and puts me in His rest. He makes it all bearable again. My only down-fall is not giving Him enough time. Life only gets unbearable because I'm too busy, I'm too tired, I'm too stressed out. I'm sure my life would be a lot more peaceful if I would just give God more of my day. Then I could live in the peace He promised me, all my waking hours.
I'm just so happy with how they look! It was heaps of fun too. I painted them, then added little dot flowers, and butterflies and grass done with the end of the paintbrush too. Then I added these cute little wooden frogs I found at the cheap shop. I made them the same colours as his quilt set, and I'm also going to do canvases for his wall in these colours and similar design (frogs, dragonfly maybe etc).
Last night, after finishing that LO, I decided to finally pull out the wooden letters I've had sitting in my stash for AGES, for Elijah's bedroom door. And this is how they turned out:
Here's a close-up of the 'E' and the 'J':
Well, just wanted to share. I'm off to have some shut-eye while the little man is asleep too, or I might turn into the Mummy Monster later this arvo!!
