Update on Elizabeth

Hi there, this post is for those of you who were so generous as to join in to send cards to a young girl named Elizabeth (Lizzy)  I mentioned to you in this post. When I heard what had happened to her, my immediate reaction was to share it with all of you and try to show her family that they were not alone and that others would be praying for them. Well, it turns out you can follow her story on Facebook and see how this young lady is inspiring others and keeping a positive outlook on life and the outpouring of support  from her community is truly beautiful to see. As I stated before, I am not acquainted with the family, nor do I know her personally but I love reading about her and you will too! Again, thank you to those who took the time to show your support! Sincerely-Raquel

****Update****
It is with great sorrow that I share that Elizabeth (Lizzy) passed away despite fighting the horrible disease that took her life. Hug your loved ones, and keep them close. Thank you to those of you who joined me in sending her family a little encouragement. Hugs~Raquel

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!



March 2011 Crop Challenge

Hi everyone! This weekend I was peeking at challenges and Kathryn from Life on the Scrap Beach had some fun ones. I decided to participate in the first one which required the use of white space. It was fun to play around with the idea and I was able to complete a 2-page layout! Alleluia!! I was so excited to actually finish it! The tricky part was that I had mentally committed to using the stickers ( since I'm trying to use what I have this year) and at first I was all "Whaaat? how am I going to incorporate these & not mess it up?!!" but then, with a little help from my friend's son Stephen, voila! It came together. Thank you Stephen!! <---he told me to put the pumpkins INSIDE the cart!. Anywho- if you even read this, thank you & thanks to Kathryn for the challenge!
