some pretty scrappy stuff ;)

My creative work had to be set away for a couple days this week. My real life needed some attention there for a while since my Grandma died Wednesday night . It's sad and I will miss her terribly, but it's also what was expected since she was 98.5 years old and we already had her with us on over-time (or how to put it). I'm so thankful for all the years we had her with us.

Anyhow, last night I finished up my assignment for July at Pretty Scrappy and got started on some for August as well ;)

#3 LO for July:

A double paged faith scrap.

I used the fun and funky Sunset Funk from Inkin' Creation for this one. I love the colors in this kit and that gorgeous see-through sun ;)

Here is my double paged go (the individual sides are below the credits):

scripture (Ecclesiastes 3:9-13) :
What do people really get for all their h
ard work? I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.

Collab kit LO:

In the month of August the kit is called Drama Queen. Look out for freebies and a blog train starting here at Crystal's blog (it's not stopping at Lime station this month). Here is a preview of the kit; available now at Pretty Scrappy.

Here is where it took me:

Nothing like spending time with great friends and jumping on the trampoline together!
