A Little Late to the Party

But...Better Late Than Never
Close to my Heart has a special this month with the My Crush
books and their accompanying assortment. When these cute
books first came out I got the Bluebird book and the assortments.
However....I was not inspired to use it until I was inspired by
Katy's Bible Journaling and her great use of words and stamps.
So, this is my first attempt at journaling one of my
favorite Bible verses: "The Word is a lamp unto 
my feet and a light unto my path." I'm going to
try to journal one verse a week and make 
the verse my weekly Bible study. 
 "Happy" was the word study this week.
More verses coming your way as I journal each week.

Now, I usually don't write so much in one post but I wanted to share
with you this fun way of journaling. It can be addicting. If you would
like to start your Bible Journaling you can order any one of four
My Crush books this month. These books are available while supplies last. 
Once they are gone they are gone for good. You still have a few days to
order one. You can phone or e-mail me your order or you can order

Thank you for visiting my blog today and may God bless you richly each day as you walk with Him.

Artbooking Meets the Party Colors

Artbooking Fun with Color My Heart 
Gypsy, Pacifica, Topiary, Honey, Sunset and Desert Sand
These colors at Color My Heart this week gave me the "party" colors to make 
some fun birthday cards and an Artbooking PML scrapbook page.
Using the overlay on page 64 cut at 3 inches made the
circles and stars just perfect to fill in with colorful paper
Fundamentals for this birthday card. This idea was inspired
by the sample artwork for future August SOTM 
 Using the Artbooking font these letters were cut using paper
 Fundamentals and then punched with circle punch for "happy" 
 Artbooking Made Easy,  looks at how to use the Picture My Life scrapbooking 
program to create a fun layout. Choose your photos, insert in the desired 
section of the page protector and design your PML sections using Artbooking.

Now It's your turn to share with us at Color My Heart.
