Think Pink Blog Hop - FINAL DAY & My 35th Birthday


If you have been with us all weekend, it's been a blast. I have new friends and I challenged myself to participate in my first blog hop. Whew. Now that we are drawing to a close, it's bittersweet. I've met some amazing women and made some new friends. I don't want it to end. I also am celebrating my 35th birthday today. As I said on my FB page, birthdays are sometimes tough for me. I lost my father to complications with surgery related to prostate cancer this month in 1996. Knowing that God is in control has helped me through all of the rough times and I know in the end, I win. This year is another tough year as we just got word that my husband's only uncle on his mother's side died on Saturday. In my DH's words, we are 5 for 5. Five close family deaths in the last five years. So you see, birthdays don't always hold the fondest memories for me. I am determined to make this one a good one though.

Now...on to my projects for today. By today, you have the hang of how this are going so I will not bore you with details. If you want info on how the projects were created, send me at message at christel (at) majesticdedsigns (dot) net and I will hopeful be able to tell you in a clear manner how it all came together.

My first project is a magnet. This is a scraplift from one of the sisters on Scraps of Color. Hopefully it will remind someone to get their mamos and do monthly checks. I used the Forever Young cartridge to create it.

The second and final, yet I feel most important item is a prayer journal. I wanted to make it more elaborate but neither time nor resources permitted me to do so. I have included scriptures that talk about hope as well as space to journal blessings. I want to encourage my friends who are battling any type of disease to count your blessings. It definitely makes things a little easier each day!

Well, that's all folks. Thank you for stopping by and sharing so much love this weekend. I've read all the comments and will post a winner tomorrow. Make sure to come back and see if it was you!

Happy Scrappin'!

That magnet is too cute and funny - great reminder too.

The prayer journal is beautiful. I really like the idea of recording one's prayers/prayer lists/gratitude lists.
