Scrapping Everyday Miracles-May Challenge

It's a new month already and at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, that means it's time for our new main challenge! Tracey S. is hosting this month and here's what she has to say:

 Hi it’s Tracey here to share our May challenge with you. Spring is my favorite time of the year with new life springing up all around me. A verse I learned many years ago at vacation bible school is 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” It’s a verse I often reflect and meditate on. I find that my life is constantly changing, and our Lord wants me to put away the old things and embrace the new. 

For this month’s main challenge we would like you to share a project that represents something new in your life. You can reflect on a new relationship, a new phase of life, an event that brought change into your life, a new job, hobby, volunteer opportunity, or even a book or Scripture verse that has given you new insight. God blesses us with everyday miracles sometimes big and sometimes small that bring change and new opportunities to our lives. Your project doesn’t need to be about a recent event, but needs to represent something new in your life.

Scrap Twist: Use something on your project that is more than a year old – the older the better, “and” something new to you in 2013. These supplies may be purchased, given to you, or even found objects. Be sure to tell us in your project blog post what these supplies are. 

Here is my layout:

For new supplies, I have used new Tattered Angels mist, jewels,stencil and  Prima butterflies and flower from my May ScrapThat! Kit. It is chock-full of all the latest from the Prima Divine line! Check it out here:May ScrapThat! Kit. Everything else is old. I have been holding on to this Prima Rondelle paper forever! I made the felt roses using my spellbinders die. The other flowers were created using Tim Holtz tattered florals die. The oldest things on my layout are the pieces of lace from my stash. I used terra-cotta molding paste for the background and of course,everything gets gessoed. 

My new resolution is to be in front of the camera more often. Like most scrappers, I am always the one behind the camera. My daughter wanted to do a "photoshoot" of me for a change and this pic is one of the results. She loved it! I need to focus less on the negative influences that trap me into thinking that I am older, fatter and no pictures should document that. God loves us just as He made us. If God says we are worthy to be loved, who are we to disagree?

Our May Sponsor is:
We started 7 years ago hoping we could create a platform that our whole family could participate in. In addition, we wanted to do business the old fashioned way with an emphasis on those things that would let a customer know, "we value your choice to shop with us, thank you". Finally, we wanted to add perspective to the buying decision with video. As online shoppers, we knew it was sometimes hard to tell from the picture, what the product looked like. So we started posting scrapbooking product videos so you could "see" what you were buying. With almost 1,000 YouTube videos, we have been able to feature great scrapbooking companies like Graphic 45, Prima, Crate Paper and Memory Box. An online store located in sunny Tucson, Arizona we ship to customers in the US and all over the world. $50.00 Orders that are shipped in the US receive Free shipping everyday!  Our family at BlueMoon looks forward to you stopping in and shopping with us!
