Scripture Challenge 2010- title page

I just realized that I didn't post my Scripture Challenge Title page...oops!!! Here is what I came up with. My 4 yr old came home from Rainbows one night and had a cute little flower with her unit scripture...

She helped Mama chalk the bright yellow flower with red and orange. She also "painted" the white scripture paper with tan chalk. I think this might be my favorite page of the challenge because I had my little "helper".
Cricut Cartridges used:
Platin SchoolBook for the letters and numbers. The florish was with the Accents Cartridge.

Super Bowl Time!!!!

I love watching the Super Bowl!!! Okay, the football doesn't really interest me but the food, fun and friends are awesome!!!
My hubby asked me to make a football field for work. They are having a Backroom Bowl as an incentive for the employees. This turned out great. I think I might have a football party for my son this summer!
I made a scut2 file for the football helmet, footballs and numbers. The green "grass" is two poster boards. The long lines are just strips of white card stock and the small lines were drawn on with my white marked. The bulls eye's are just circles from the shapes library in SCAL.
I also used SCAL to weld the letters of their names for the footballs and my Cricut to cut everything out.

who said "I cannot tell a lie"?

Here is another scut2 made for my teacher friend! I love SCAL!!!!(see my side bar for more infp) Download HERE

ReDeemed Unique Art

One of my favorite crafters is Noel from ReDeemed unique art. She is celebrating National "Inspire your heart with art" day January 31st!
She is giving away a piece of her artwork. Here is one of my favorite styles. I love how she antiques the hymn paper and puts an image on top. Praise and Worship is close to my heart and this is a beautiful way to appreciate it! Stop by her Etsy shop. I can't wait to see her new work.
(my ultimate favorite)

Explosion Box

Here is a cute little gift idea... an Explosion Box. At January's ScrapBooking Blessing Club, one of the ladies taught us how to make these. I've seen them around the web but never did it myself.
I picked my favorite (unscrapped) pictures and made this one for my coffee table.

Now I'm addicted!!!
I have to admit...I'm a lazy typer though, lol. I didn't want to type out all the instructions she gave us, but I did find a great site with the easiest instructions to follow! For explosion box instructions, try Scrapbook Eden. Plus, it is a very nice site to boot!

If you make a box, let me know. I would love to see them!

Icthus aka Christian fish

Challenge Word #1: Hope

Our first word of 2010 is... HOPE! I thought this was very fitting. I have a lot of hopes for 2010 for me, my family, my church, my friends.
Hope is... one of the three main elements of Christian character (1 Cor. 13:13). It is joined to faith and love, and is opposed to seeing or possessing (Rom. 8:24; 1 John 3:2). "Hope is an essential and fundamental element of Christian life, so essential indeed, that, like faith and love, it can itself designate the essence of Christianity (1 Pet. 3:15; Heb. 10:23)." Unbelievers are without this hope (Eph. 2:12; 1 Thess. 4:13). Christ is the actual object of the believer's hope, because it is in his second coming that the hope of glory will be fulfilled (1 Tim. 1:1; Col. 1:27; Titus 2:13). It is spoken of as "lively", i.e., a living, hope, a hope not frail and perishable, but having a perennial life (1 Pet. 1:3). Easton's Bible Dictionary

I used....-A Child's Year cart for the word hope -Sweethearts cart for the tag…
