I got another AWARD!



   I got another award, and I have to admit, I have not posted any of the other ones before.  But i decided that I would share this with my blog friends.  I am very humbled by any recognition that I have received because I am just truly creating and designing from my heart, so, its a litte overwhelming that others think enough of my work to give me this awards.  I want to tell each of you thank you.  I have met so many nice people in the digiscrapping world, that it would be hard to pick out just a few... So I am just going to thank you all, for all your encouragement and faith in me.  I would be remiss however if I did not thank Shannon, from Scrappy Shannons, for she has been an incredible encourager to me, has literally called me and walked me though step by step teaching me tips and techniques.  And I cant forget Vicky, my "digi-sister" who is forever getting me to try new things and spread my creative wings.  Babette from LBCreations-designs by Babette who has fantastic CU things and is just a cutie-pie!  I smile every time i see her sweet face on my im.  And then there are you ladies, those who have left comments, and such nice things on my emails.  YOU are truly a blessing to me.  So, I shall pass this on to each of you, with a smile on my face and joy in my heart for your kindness towards me and others.  Maybe we can change the world and make it a better place!

We Have SO Much to be Thankful For...

As I scurried around the kitchen yesterday, busy with my Holiday preparations, I remembered a tip as I was working.  I had gotten out my aluminum foil to wrap up a few of my casseroles.  Aluminum Foil? That's what You are gonna talk about this morning on THANKSGIVING?  Yep! I am!  I wonder how many of you know this...on the ends of your aluminum foil boxes, even saran wrap too, there are little push in tabs.  (What in the world is Teri talkin about today?)  Go get your box of foil and look on the ends.  See them?  Did you know that they are there for you to push in, so that your foil will not come tumbling out of the box!!!   Now, I am 52 years old and did not know this until about 4 months ago.... Try it!  It works!  Ok, so what does this have to do with Thanksgiving?  I was thinking about this yesterday as I was cooking, and the thought occurred to me.  How many times we don't see God's blessings, see the things HE is doing in our lives, even though they are right there "in our hands" (like the foil).  There is no telling how long those little tabs have been in those boxes, this is not something new, I know that, and yet, I never saw them before!  They were put there to help make using foil easier, to keep it safely in the box, so that it wont get torn or ripped, and yet, I never used it!  Now, are you seeing?  It's like that with GOD too!  He is there, has been all along.  He is working in my life, even when I don't see it!  And he is working in yours too.  So, I hope you never look at a box of foil again without thinking about me, and this Thanksgiving post, reminding you of all of Gods Blessings.  Psalms 100 is a Psalm for giving thanks...Here it is for you to enjoy.."Shout for Joy to the Lord , all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.  Know that the Lord is God.   It is He that hath made us, and we are his; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.  Enter His gates with THANKSGIVING and into HIS courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.  For the Lord is good; and his love endures forever, his faithfulness continues through all generations.  Psalms 100  His, Teri

Click on the preview to go to the store.


Here is the darling  BragBook! 


"They say its my BIRTHDAY...."

But I don't remember...LOL.  I cant believe it!  I am sliding down the "hill" at 51!  OMG its hard to believe it.  Oh, well.......I will adjust.  I have a great day a head of me.  My Granddaughter is getting Baptized today so we will all be together tonight for that.  So, that is great.  I am so blessed, by my family and friends, that my cup runneth over.  And so, I have a little freebie to share with you today.  It is a LIMITED TIME OFFER so be sure to get it now.  I will have it up over the weekend and will remove it on Tuesday.  It was made with Scrappy Shannon's Blissful Baby kit from Pretty Scrappy.  It is a cute, cute kit and as you can tell from my QP's, very versatile.  See, both of these from one kit!  Shannon did a great job with this one for sure.  Enjoy, and both QP are on one zip, so either layout is the same link.  Have a blessed weekend!  Teri

My First Love.............

'"Nevertheless, I have this one thing against you, that you left your first love." Rev. 2:4  Now, some of you may be thinking, "What the heck is she talking about?"  Let me explain....I started out my blog as a way for me to share my gifts and talents with others.  While I continue to do that, I have become very busy in my designing and creating, which is not bad in itself..........except, I never want to be so busy that I forget my first Love, Jesus Christ.   I love seeing how the Lord works in my life and in others and I love to share that with people.  So, if I have neglected doing that in any way.......SHAME ON ME!  I love looking at Gods word and seeing how it applies to my every day, day in and day out, activities.  He is always teaching me, and showing me how to be more like Him.  Unfortunately, I don't always learn on the first go around.  I want to finish our walk through the Proverbs 31 woman and then I have a little something for you!  Proverbs 31:30 says that "Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman that fears the Lord, she shall be praised"  Now, I am human, of course, and I like a little pat on the back every now and then ( ok like at least once a day! ).  But who's praise am I really after?  You know, only the eternal things really matter, and so If I am looking for mans praise, well that pat on the back, and maybe a little acknowledgement is all I am going to get, and that will quickly fade into the past.  But those things I do, to please my Lord, well that is a different horse all together ( you know I'm in Texas, right? ).  Those things will last and will be of value to others too!  May I remember this as I go about my daily life, always looking to Him and seeing His hand in my life and then answering His call to share with others, My First Love, Jesus!  Did I hit any nerves with anyone else?  I know it hit home for me.  So, now my friends, here is a little something I am sure many of you have been anxious to get.  It is Decembers calendar.  So this finishes up the year, but i did make a cover layout so, be sure to come back and snag it next week.  Blessings and Grace for today!  His, Teri

I Digi-Dare You! (I mean I dare all my digi-friends)

That is just my way of saying i dare all my digi friends!  Ok, on with Proverbs!  We have come too far to stop now!  I have ben so busy with getting things set up in the store at Pretty Scrappy, but I do not want to neglect the most important things... the eternal things.  I have a motto I live by since having had cancer... If it doesn't have eternal value it is not that important.  But this, this is important.  Lets look at the Proverbs 31:29 woman.     'Many women have done noble work, but you have surpassed them all!'  Oh me...........its going to be another convicting post i can tell!  I have watched two great movies this week and I would recommend them to you too.  One was an older movie, Facing the Giants and the other one, is at theaters now...Fireproof.  Great Christian films, done in a way that hits you right where you are.  There are lessons for everyone in these two films.  And so, that brings me back to this Proverbs 31 woman.  What we need are more women who are willing to set their wants aside and seek what God wants in our lives.  What a selfish nation we have become. The challenge is this, are you willing to seek the Lord and see what He wants you to do in your life?  Uh oh, preaching to the choir here...Am I ?  I wish I could say with all confidence, yes.  But the truth is, more often than not, I want to do my thing not God's.  So, this is a joint challenge.  I will seek to try to make sure the work I do is of noble character.  God knows my heart, but sometimes my flesh gets in the way. Let's work on this together, ok?  His, Teri

Going a Little Bugsy?


This is a cute kit from Jaydensmama called "Bugsy". This kit can be found at Pretty Scrappy.  Click either preview to go to the store.  I love the retro colors she used. I had some photos of my grandson and a nephews little boy from last week when I took them to the park and I think the colors and the kit just went together. This is a great chance to show how you can use a photograph that has some of the kits colors in it, but dont be afraid to try to add a color that is not present in the kit, see how the red just pops! Any way, wanted to show you these layouts and I will be back to add the QP's for you. Hope you have voted today! His, Teri


Here is a little goodie for you! I will post the other one in the next few days!

I'm Up and Running!

I got my things up and going at Pretty Scrappy and I am so excited. I want to thank all the gals over there who helped me set up shop! I am going to show you a sneak peek of the kits I have created! And without further ado, here are my latest endeavors! Drum roll please! Ta Da.............


This is my very first kit "Holidays are Here" and I had so much fun making it. I love the little lights and the great colors of this kit. I hope you will like it too! It will always be special to me because it was my first one. I like the fact that even though it was designed for the Holidays, I made it with the thought that people could use it for non Holiday scrapping also! I will have a freebie real soon with this cute little kit! And moving on to the second kit....


This is my kit "Thankful Heart". It was with that theme in mind that I created it. I feel so blessed and thankful for all that the Lord has done for me and continues to do. I hope to share his blessings and grace with others through my designs. I would love to hear your feedback on what you think about my kits! And to let you see the quality of my work, here is a little sample just for you! A QP using my kit "Thankful Heart" Please let me see what you make with it!



I also have put the alpha tiles and the number tiles together in one package AND have lowered the price. Click on the preview to go to the store. And come back soon for some more goodies! His, Teri
