SEM's May Sketch Challenge

Over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, Helen's Sketch Challenge this month included this card sketch (there's also a Layout sketch as well).  The *twist* was to use circle elements!

I used some cute felt embellishments that I had just gotten at Michaels ($1 bin--gotta love it!) and made a super quick birthday card. I love the simplicity of Helen's made it so easy to make this cute "Bird" day card!

SEM's "Something New" Challenge!

Over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles our new challenge this month is to scrap about something NEW in your life. The "twist" to include is something old (a year or older) and something new (something purchased in 2013) on your layout.

Here's my take on the challenge...
I chose to scrap about Ellie being baptized--she decided all on her own to give her life to Christ last year, and was baptized in August---we are so thrilled to have a new believer in our home--what a JOY she is! 

I included this bible quote on my layout...
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4

Hope you'll join us for this fun challenge and share something NEW in your life!!
