**New** in the store at PDW is what I hope is the first in a series of Scrap Your Faith kits. This one is Up Words. Up Words is all about scrapping about those times that someone lifted you up or made your day with just a kind word or deed. It is also about doing the same for others, Paying it forward. Let every word you say Speak Life. Be unashamed and Scrap Your Faith. Available at Plain Digital Wrapper.
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just wanted to stop everything and just … lie down, say a prayer and go to sleep? Maybe if you go to sleep, everything that is bothering you will be gone when you wake up, or it will just work it self out without your help. My week started out that way, but If finally realized that it wasn’t me that was having the bad week! No! It wasn’t me at all! It was everyone else that was having the nightmares! After I came to this realization, everything went perfect the rest of the week! God is good and he is in control of EVERYTHING…most of all…he has your back no mater what is going on in your world. All you have to do is ask him for guidance and BAMM…everything just falls into place. We aren’t meant to go it alone. He wants us to need him, He wants to be with us in all things. All we have to do is ASK. Remember that!
Today we celebrate the United States of America coming into Freedom. Please let us all stop and say a prayer for all of the men and women in the Armed Forces that have fought to help gain that freedom AND for all of those that continue to keep us safe and FREE.
I Salute You ALL!
I also celebrated my birthday a few days ago. So here is one for that too!
Shouting out for this layout! It was nominated for Bakers Best at GingerScraps for the week of November 1 – 7. I created this one with a new kit by Blue Heart Scraps called “Get Your Smile On“. I also used her new “Dotty Edges“. My Grandson is just so silly and I just knew that this was the perfect photo for this layout!
A voting poll should be set up either tomorrow or Monday for voting on this one. Drop by the forum and cast your vote for Bakers Best! I will update this post when the poll is posted and with the results!
I’m not sure about you, but I subscribe to several newsletters from my favorite designers and I received one this morning that I simply have to share. Blue Heart Scraps has created a small freebie of dotted lines and she is giving it away on her Blog! It’s an awesome freebie and these dotted lines are so useful in so many different ways! Here’s a preview of the Freebie. Hop on over to her Blog and grab it while you can.

My Grand-Daughter is in Theater (Drama) this year at school and they have really been putting on the skits and plays. Unfortunately, I have not been able to go to any of them as they are usually performed during the day at school and my work load will not permit my taking off to go to see them. I was fortunate enough for one of the other mothers to have taken some awesome photos of the skit that they performed this pas Thursday called “BOO”. It is just one of 7 skits that they have performed during their SpookFeast!
I created this layout for the Font challenge at Gingerscraps with some of the photos that were taken. I used “All Hallows Eve” by Ooh La La Scraps.
It’s sneak peek time again, are you excited?!
October 1st is closing in fast, and that means the start of a new GingerScraps Buffet. Blue Heart Scraps has a few packs releasing for this month’s buffet, but here’s a quick sneak peek at Blue Hearts portion of that buffet, so you can get excited about seeing the full reveal of it Thursday! There is also a chance to win on the Blue Heart Blog located here!
So, here is something that I REALLY want to start doing… Creating a layout for all of my loved ones who have Birthdays during the month! I am the worst procrastinator of them all…but I will give it a try! Forgive in advance the fact that I will not post the actual dates of these birthdays. Believe me, there is a very good reason…this is the WEB after all!

There is one more birthday that was celebrated in the month of September that I must mention. My only brother, Danny, celebrated his birthday this month as well. I will not be posting a pic of my brother as he has requested that I do not post any pics of him on the web. I will honor that request.
