The Gift of Sight - journaling included

Materials used:  October Afternoon, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, MM rub-ons, Maya Rd chipboard, Hambly washi tape and overlay, lace from stash
I issued the challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles today.  My challenge is for you to first off, consider yourself a miracle - perfectly crafted by the Creator.  Then I would like you to create a layout/project that celebrates YOU!

Scrapping twist:  You must use a picture of yourself (it can be the whole you or just a part) and make sure to include some handwritten journaling to celebrate that gift also!

I was hoping to share my journaling, but I left my layout elsewhere and I can't read it here online!  LOL  So, I will hopefully be back to share with you, but if you would like to join in and have a chance at an awesome prize come on over to Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

Journaling reads:  "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that full well."  Ps 139:14

I have needed glasses since I was 9 and I've always disliked that fact.  I did finally get used to my eye sight or maybe I should say I learned to ignore it.  And then my eyes began causing me such pain.  I finally went to the eye dr and am now stuck in glasses for 2 months all because I didn't value the gift the Lord gave me - my eyes.  I didn't take time to visit the dr, I didn't change my contacts as often as I should, and I refused to give my eyes a rest.  I forgot that my eyes work very hard each day and that the Lord expects us to be good stewards over what He has given us, I had forgotten to be grateful, to give thanks in everything!

I hopefully have now learned my lesson to take care of what the Lord gives me and to be thankful for each part of my body because I am fearfully and wonderfully made!

The Paper Issues blog hop is done and my prize winner will be announced shortly.

  4. The misting and cropped photo of your eyes are perfect for this. What a cool thing to scrapbook about.
