My Faith Journey

This is the first Faithbooking Page that our new Scrapping and Stamping group at church made on Tuesday night. We meet on the last Tuesday of every month from 6:30PM to 9:30PM. We are located in Denver, North Carolina, so, if you are in the area and would like to join us next month, just let me know and I will get directions for you. We have a great time and lots of tools for you to use as well. This page was made with Close to My Heart Caprice Paper Pack.

My Little Lady Lexie

This is My Little Lady Lexie. She got a bath yesterday in between grooming sessions, so, I decided to put her new dress on. A friend of my daughter's
bought the dress for her. I may be a little biased, but, isn't she just too cute?

Hope you all have had a great weekend and also hope you have a greet week ahead. God Bless, Valerie

Love Keeps No Record Of Wrongs

I Corinthians 13:4-8

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

This is the latest Faithbooking layout I finished. I was asked to be a guest designer for this verse on I just submitted the layout this morning and have not had any response yet. I am kind of anxious to see if they liked enough to use it. If they do, it will a part of the e-zine they send out. Wish me luck.
