Project Life: Week 19

Hello!  It feels like forever since I last scrapbooked (aka working on Project Life), when really, it's only been a few weeks.  You may laugh at me, but I'm having a hard time remembering what it was like to scrapbook whenever I wanted for all of those years before I had Jeralyn.  Last night I was having one of those guilty moments that I haven't been keeping up with scrapbooking as I had hoped.  But I was too tired to scrap last night and I know that if I stay up too late it will take me a long time to fall asleep.  Having a baby changes everything, and having a toddler REALLY changes everything.  She's a busy little bee, buzzing around non-stop.  The last few weeks have been busy, so I haven't had my normal time of playing in Photoshop for a bit during her blanket time in the morning.  And the only reason I got to scrap this evening is because Quent wasn't hogging the computer.  Ha!
And did I mention before that I'm selling off my stamping stuff on eBay?  Every single thing I listed (aside from one thing) sold!  I have more to sell, I'm just working up the nerve to list a bunch of stuff again--because when I do I have packages to weigh, packing slips to print, and post office visits to make.  But it's so worth it!  When I stopped stamping a few years ago, Quent encouraged me to keep my stuff in storage for 6 months just to make sure.  Well, it's been multiple 6 months and I am safe to say I am no longer stamping--which is really weird to say after being a Stampin Up! demonstrator!  Maybe some day I will pick up that hobby again, but for now I am completely satisfied with being a mom, digital scrapbooking, knitting, being a homemaker, etc.  It was bittersweet to sell off almost all of my ink pads and stamps, but I must admit I am happy to see it go and to pocket some cash at the same time.  Whew!
I'm currently looking for a new knitting project to work on.  I have 3 buttons to sew on to my latest project and then it will be done.  Why do I keep putting that off?  Oops!
For the pages below I used Frolic.

Project Life: Week 18

I'm not too crazy about this spread, but it's done.  Maybe it would look better if I changed all of the photos to black and white.  I like the colors from the photos and elements to blend, but that was hard to do on these pages.  That's ok though!  Now on to the next week...

Need a Savior?

No matter who you are and no matter what your past--God loves you.  And He sent His son so we might have life and have it abundantly.  God sent His One and only Son to die a death we deserved--but in love He willingly took our place.  He changed the whole world and He wants to change your whole life today.  Are you willing?

Heavenly Father, I come to You admitting that I am a sinner.  Right now, I choose to turn away from sin, and I ask You to cleanse me of all unrighteousness.  I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died on the cross to take away my sins.  I also believe He rose again from the dead so that I might be forgiven of my sins and made righteous through faith in Him.  I call upon the name of Jesus Christ to be the Savior and Lord of my life. I declare right now I am a child of God.  I am free from sin and full of the righteousness of God.  I am saved in Jesus' name, Amen!

Project Life: Week 17

Hello!  Well, I've had these layouts open in Photoshop for a few days now due to beautiful weather, painting a bathroom, and other miscellaneous tasks.  But today during Jeralyn's nap time I decided to work on it and ended up finishing.  Yay!  I had to start jotting things down in a document on my computer so I don't forget what's happened each week.  So if I do get a little bit behind I at least have the pictures and some journaling.  Life is getting busy!

I also wanted to give a knitting update.  I finally finished the cardigan I was working on, but now I just need to find some buttons to sew on.  I have to say, I think it's one of my most favorite knitting projects!  I can't wait to share pictures!
