I Search and Seek

I Search and Seek

This is a record for me.  I never am “up to date” on my scrapbooking, yet I have my Easter layouts for this year already completed!  Ok, I confess. One reason is because I needed to post something on the blog this week.  But the second reason, is because I didn’t take a lot of time or supplies to create my layout.  Scrapbooking doesn’t have to be time-consuming or have a lot of product used. This layout was particularly quick because the journaling was part of the paper itself.  I used I Seek paper from the Glorious Morning collection. I Search and Seek In the heart of mankind emptiness resides looking for fulfillment that seemingly hides. From treasure to treasure I search and I seek Fading pleasures afflict my heart so weak Searching through the grass and up in trees Lost and exhausted I tripped to my knees. My head held low, I slowly lift my eyes My journey is over, I have found my prize. Over the Rock I stumbled, to the foot of the cross I fell. Filled with His Spirit and a story to tell. The Lord has risen, He has risen indeed. No more searching, no more seeking I’ve found the One I need.

I started on Sunday evening and had some supplies out on kitchen table. I went to bed. Kate punched a bunch of butterflies from the scrap white cardstock. ...
Easter Morning

Easter Morning

All I wanted was a picture of my girls in their Easter dresses. Is that too much to ask?  Well, I managed to get two pictures and had to pick the best one. I created a real simple layout using the Orchid Morning paper from the Glorious Morning collection.  Added a tag with 1 Corinthians 15:24 as an embellishment as well as my journaling. (I did add the date below the picture after scanning)  Added a few embellishments and I was done. You don’t need a lot of time or supplies to create a layout. I wanted to show case the girls in their dresses on Easter, and I believe I accomplished just that! (click image for larger...
Easter Cross

Easter Cross

by Carrie Sunderlin My inspiration for the cross is that Mercy and Grace meet at the cross. Mercy is not getting what we deserve, whereas grace is the opposite. Grace gives us the things we don’t deserve. So through Jesus sacrifice we obtained mercy in that we deserved punishment for our sin, but Jesus was merciful and took our punishment for us. By doing that he gave us grace in that we don’t deserve salvation, blessings, health, provision, joy, and all the other inheritances of the promises of Abraham. But we receive them all through his atoning sacrifice. His sacrifice brought us so much more than just our entry into heaven, it freed us from the bondage of the law, it made us heirs with Christ so that all his riches become our riches. It was the great exchange: He became poor so that we could become rich, he bore our sickness and infirmities so that we could be healthy view website and strong, he bore our sin so we could shake it off, he knew shame so that we never have to be shameful again, he was a man of sorrows so that we could know his joy, he was despised and rejected by men so that we could be loved and accepted by the Father, he stepped down from his position in heaven so that we could gain entrance. Hallelujah!!! What a savior. I made this cross to be beautiful, because it is a symbol of the beauty of Jesus’ finished work. It’s a symbol of how much he loves us, and that is a beautiful thing....
