 I have been planning on creating a prayer journal ever since one of my scrappy friends posted the idea. I always have many people to pray for and thought what an awesome way to remember all the prayers that need to be said. I also get Daily Bible Quotes sent to my email and this will be a very special place for me to write them all down. Then whenever I need inspiration and words of wisdom I can open it up and read from the pages.

I took a regular composition book and covered it with paper and chipboard embellishments from Marcella K. I just love these colors together.  Even the title "INSPIRE" came with these chipboard shapes.
I used a border punch for the decorative edge along with some white Simply Sheer ribbon from LoveBug Creations. The bracket shape for the "Faith" quote was made using a template from Kiwi Lane Designs. 
 And for finishing touches I added some sequins along with a gorgeous stick pin created with supplies from our sponsor, Pinque Peacock.

I hope that you enjoy this special hop and all of the projects the ladies created to inspire you during this Blessed time of year. Happy Easter!

  Pretty in Pink- Solitude

Pin It
Hello fellow Lovebugs!!
 
here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!!



I recently attended the Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim, CA and I had so much fun. Not only did I do some shopping but I also learned some new  techniques and made some really awesome projects. I'd like to share one with you all today. I just love how it turned out. 
 Notice the Simply White Rumple Ribbon wrapped around my photo mats. Just the perfect touch.
 The title was stamped with Acrylic paint and then outlined in white pen.

We used so many cool techniques. We misted, we dropped ink from a little bottle, we stamped, and we used stencils with both paint and a white paste. It was messy and oh so fun!

 Other items used:
Cardstock
Silk Flowers
Buttons
LBC Simply Sheer White Ribbon
