I am so excited to be running my first ever challenge at Faith Sisters and I’ve called it “Cover Challenge”. I love music and I’ve always got a song in my head when I wake up in the morning. It’s often how I start my prayers too. So it seemed only natural to me that I look to Christian music covers for my Designer’s Challenge Thursday with a “Cover Challenge” this week. My inspiration comes from this Mercy Me cover.

It’s a simple design with simple elements, yet it “spoke” to me on many levels. So for your challenge, should you choose to accept it is this: Create a layout from something that inspires you about this cover.

Does the main element, the heart inspire you? I’ve created a FREEBIE heart balloon that is available in my shop.


Does the silhouetted figure get the creative ideas going? You can make your own or use these fantastic silhouette brushes from Obsidian Dawn HERE.

How about the title? I was struck by the word “generous”. It got me thinking about how we can afford to be generous because God has given us everything. There are many wonderful verses about being generous and generosity. Maybe one of these speaks to you this week:

  • You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. (2 Corinthians 9:11)
  • Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. (Det 15:10)
  • Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. (Psalms 112:5)
  • A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25)
  • If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)

Here’s what I created:
I used the heart balloon freebie, a silhouette of my youngest daughter because she has the gift of generosity that I am learning from and the verse from 2 Corinthians that reminds me of just how “rich” I really am. Where will this challenge take you? I’d love to see.

Not only was it “Wacky Hair Day” it was “Pajama Day” and “Pancake Day” all rolled into one last Tuesday. It was the first special “fun” day for Ellie in her new class and she was so excited. Her big sister knew exactly what to do with Ellie’s hair since she is a “Wacky Hair Day” veteran. Anna styled her sisters hair into pony tails, braids and messy buns. Ellie loved her look.

Walking her home from the bus Ellie commented, “Today went really fast.” (Usually it’s been “I’m exhausted.”) So I knew it must have been a good day. Then she said, “Mom, I’m sorry to say but those pancakes were even better than at home. If you would’ve have one you would’ve said so too.”  The next day at school she thanked her teacher for those “delicious pancakes”. Not sure what made them so delicious, but I’m glad she enjoyed them.

Note: this layout is made with my new Fall Solids, Fall Dots and Fall Elements kits available at Faith Sisters

Middle School: We’ve started. Anna’s class is on a camping trip that they left for yesterday. Yesterday was a beautiful fall day. This morning as I write this post it is raining, but not too hard. She didn’t want to pack her raincoat, but I put it in her bag anyway. This morning she will thank me (maybe) if she’s not complaining too much about the rain.  Even if they do complain, it will be something that they will collectively remember that they survived together and that is the point: to bond as a community with shared experiences and shared memories as a class.

This layout is available as a QUICKPAGE at Faith Sisters

You like these fun colors? Stay tuned…the huge October Faith Sisters Collaboration Kit will keep you happy.

I love fall. It has to be my favorite season. The cooler temperatures, the changing leaf colors, the crispness in the air–I love it!

I have lots of new fall stuff in the store, including a fall quotes FREEBIE so check it out.

First a FREEBIE available HERE in honor of Teddy Bear Day (September 9th).

The unconditional love a teddy bear brings reminds us of the unconditional love of our heavenly Father. So enjoy this little “freebie” and remember that God loves you!

It coordinates beautifully with my “Bear Hugs” kit available at Faith Sisters.

Although the temperatures have started to moderate lately, it is too soon in the season for “fall” photographs so I looked to  last years shots and came up with this one of Ellie buried in a pile of leaves. I think my new kit works wonderfully for this–don’t you?! (See previous post for details and a link where to get it.)
