Scrappy Share

I know I've been MIA here for a little while.

Busy with balancing my new job and family life.
And when I do get a free {HA!} moment, I've been trying to scrapbook.

I've been inspired lately by some challenges and sketches, and even though I don't usually complete them in time to upload for the deadlines,
I still get to scrapbook and share them here. :)
Lucky you! :)
This was a recent challenge on the Stampin' Sisters in Christ site.
The only requirement was to use the verse
Psalm 97:1: The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad. Let the distant shores rejoice.

Patterned paper, October Afternoon; Thickers, American Crafts; Letter stickers, Making Memories

This is a card I made for a bloggy/scrapbooker friend who is currently battling breast cancer. I really like the way it turned out, but I especially like how I was able to use the scraps from another project....they were already cut into squares. This came together pretty quickly.

And finally, a layout I did using a sketch from Pamela Young. I don't often hide my journaling, but in this case, I ran out of room on the page. I lifted Evan's photo with foam squares and hid the journaling card behind there. I like that I got to use another file folder tab anyway...

I love the hidden journaling on this, what a great idea!

Hope all is well :-)
