*Faith* :):):):):)

Hi all.....

First and foremost... I want to extend my thoughts and prayers to my friends in Queensland and Tasmania... I have been following your blogs and the news... and it saddens my heart to see you going through this... love and safety to all of you.... :)

I wanted to share some lo's with you today! :):):):):)

First... we have the latest challenge over at "These are a Few of My Favorite Things" and this time we want to know YOUR FAVE QUOTE! :):):):)
Now, usually (as I have done MANY times in the past....)... I use my FAVE QUOTE from the movie "Hope Floats" (I have it listed in full in a tab on the top of my blog too!) :):):):):) But this time, since I have chosen "FAITH" as my OLW for 2011... I decided to use a quote using that word....and my quote is....
"Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase" by Martin Luther King, Jr. :):):):):):)
As I was searching for a "FAITH" quote to use, I searched about 7 or 8 different quote sites....each site I visited had all these different quotes about faith and using the word faith... but ALL the sites I visited ALL had this quote on their sites... I take that as a sign! :):):):):):):):):):):):) The photo is from a visit to San Francisco I was on 2 years ago :):):):):):):)
I used Crate Paper on here and the flowers are from Tessa's ETSY shop! :):):):):):)









I also wanted to share a lo I made for the latest sketch challenge over on Bo Bunny!!!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Here is their sketch this time around...

And here is my take on it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

This is from Bo Bunny's "Crush" line that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com! :):):):):):):):):):):)










And a few reminders......

And so is the latest challenge over at Nikki Sivils blog!
     
Also.....don't forget all about the DT call over at FAVE THINGS! :):):):):):):):):):)


And.... Blue Moon Scrapbooking is having a sketch challenge this month.. see all the deets right HERE! :):):):):):):):):):):)


Thanks for stopping by.... I really appreciate it! :):):):):):):)
