SEM April Challenge-"All God's Creatures"

Nicole is hosting the main challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles for April. Here is a little about what she has to say:

Hi it is Nicole... As I write this challenge post I am sitting on the couch surrounded by two cats and a dog.  They continually bless my life with friendship, laughter, and love. It is so true the animals are such a beautiful and amazing part of God's creation

For this month's main challenge we would like you to create a project inspired by your pets.  Even if you aren't animal person or don't have any pets you can still be inspired by this challenge.  You can create a project inspired by any animal in God's creation. Your projects can even be about an animal related experience like a day at the zoo or a farm. What is important is that we see that God is blessing us with everyday miracles using both the animals within our families and those outside our homes.  

SCRAP TWIST: USE AN ANIMAL RELATED QUOTE SAYING OR EVEN BIBLE VERSE ON YOUR PROJECT.   You can use it for your title, journaling or just addition to your project! Just to help you get started here is a link to a bunch of animal quotes

Here is my layout:

Several years ago,my sweet puppy accidently ate some gum, You may not know that gum contains Xylitol, which can be fatal in dogs. As little as 3 grams can kill a 65 lb dog. Click on link to read more. My puppy,Honey, only weighs 4 lbs. We rushed her to the Vet, where she was admitted for 3 days on IV fluids and medication and monitoring. We were told she would likely die or if she lived, have permanent liver damage. I prayed for a miracle. God came through, as always! She survived with no lasting damage to her liver! How wonderful is our God to take the time to answer puppy prayers!

My layout was created using papers from my Gorgeous April kit from ScrapThat, featuring Donna Salazar's Natural Beauty line! The butterfly chippie is from ScrapFX, where I won a generous RAK. Their chippies are heavy weight and beautiful!I chose to leave it naked except for some crackle.I made the little pinwheel and with my new Prima Poppy mask, made the molding paste design. My quote for the twist is written across the bottom of the page:

All thing bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Hello there! I'm Leena and I live in the tiny island of Singapore. I've been scrapbooking for 6 years now and the recent one year, I've turned from a traditional scrapbooker to Project Lifer. It's been an amazing year just dedicating my time and days documenting week after week worth of stories about me, my family and friends, my full time job, the places I've traveled to for work and holidays, celebrations and many more interesting journey of my life. I've also set up a very small online shop just a year ago, just to share handmade items that was originally created for my own use. Then I realized, I had a lot of request from scrapbookers all over the world asking for my handmade items to be made available for sale. That's how it got started. The response has been overwhelming and I'm so thankful to all my buyers for their support. My shop sells mainly core handmade items such as flair buttons or also known as badges which can be used for any kind of craft projects. They're a very popular scrapbook product among scrapbookers! Once again thank you to Scrapping Everyday Miracles for this opportunity to sponsor my shop products for their challenge this April!

Isn't it amazing how God even takes care of our pets. Of course he as promised to answer all our prayers if we obey him and follow his commandments.
I love your lil doggie, he is such a sweetie pie.
