Framed Art

I made this for my Secret Sister-in-Christ.  The sentiment is from Psalm 27:1, "The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the strength of all my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"

Remember her?  "A Thousand Years Waiting"  I made this card for a swap, here are some of the beautiful creations I received back:
They were too beautiful to put in a box, and I'm too selfish to part with them.  So, I decided to frame them and hang them in my craft room for inspiration.  When I get the others framed, I'll post.  Here are some close-ups:
Thanks for looking!

Scrapbook Page Accents

Well, you can guess - another swap.  We had to make 3 accent pieces and a title.  I chose the categories: Nature and Birthday.  Here is my "nature," it feels a little like fall because of the colors I chose.  I went in a different direction, I decided to "look up" and focus on the sun instead of "looking down" and making flowers and butterflies (my usual).  

Here's my birthday set (very girlie):
I used the Paper Pups cart with my Cricut to create the party hat, present, and title.
