The Source of Joy

Many things bring temporary, hobbies, loved ones, music, even the sunshine. But all of these things can be taken away in a heartbeat. Deep and lasting joy can only be found through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Psalm 16:11 says, "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore."
I made these scripture tags this week to remind my Adult Bible Study students that true joy is only found in His presence....
I used K & Company papers; rosebud flowers are Prima; sunflowers are Martha Stewart.

My cousin took this picture of her three beautiful daughters! Aren't they adorable? Who could resist scrapbooking pictures of these sweet girls? I've been admiring the work of "Robinzberdz" at and decided to try a layout similar to her style. This layout is my take on Robin's creative style.
I used the Creative Memories Earthy Serenity Paper Pack for most of this layout. I used solid cardstock out of my stash as my base. On most of the CM papers, I distressed the edges with the blade of my scissors. You need a good, sharp blade for this. Then I inked the edges with charcoal chalk ink. On the mat behind the photo, I used decorative edged scissors and then inked the edges. For the purple paper at the top of the photo, I used Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Edge border punch and inked the edges. The rosebud flowers are from Prima, but underneath them are paper flowers made with the Creative Memories Friendship Micro Maker. I cut a 10" circle from black cardstock and used my decorative edge scissors to give it a bit of elegance. The black flowers are a felt border from KI Memories.
