My first born son turns 25 today! Where
have the years gone!?
I remember sitting in church, and I was about 5 months
pregnant. I saw the name Caleb in my bible and thought…”that’s his name, we
shall name him Caleb”. I didn’t know at
the time, that we were having a boy, but I knew if we did…that was his name!
I remember his first day of kindergarten, teaching him to
drive, first day of college, and his move into his new apartment. Some days I miss him so much, he's always been my "right hand man", he was always there for me. Now he's moved on and is a young adult, he makes me extremely proud. Happy Birthday Caleb! Love you to the Moon and back!
So…in honor of my son’s name, I worked on Numbers 14:24: "But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it."
This past weekend, we celebrated my nephew's 1st Birthday. His parents, mostly his mama, did a wonderful job at decorating for the party. She even set up a "photo prop" w/ hay bales, pumpkins, and my dad's saddle. My nephew had a wonderful time! I wanted his 1st birthday cards to be special, so these are the 2 that I made for him.

Happy Monday to you! Heard this verse in church yesterday and it stuck. So I thought I'd journal it lastnight. This is in Revelations 3:11: Hold fast what you have, so that NO ONE may seize your Crown!
I'm not sure who makes the pink and blue alphabet stickers, they are extras from an open package. The black ones used in seize are by Stickos. Found those at Michael's. Crown is by Hallmark I believe.
Page flag are from Target's $1 spot.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I did! We celebrated my nephew's 1st Birthday with a Lil' Cowboy themed party. I'll show you pictures of the cards I made for him on tomorrow's post.
Wow! Monday already! Hopefully many of you are home because of our great holiday: Columbus Day! I am off today, but will be going in for a Dr's visit. Taking advantage of my off time. Wanted to share this one with you today:
Items used: Green Letters stickers from WalMart, Crown Sticker, Cross Washi-Tape, Cross Paper clip and Sharpie Fine Markers.
Sorry this is so short..I've got lots to do today.
Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! I know I am. It's a beautiful day!!! Thought I'd share this verse with you....it brings a smile to my heart. Exodus 15:2--"The Lord is my Strength and my Song and He has become my Salvation."
These are the supplies I used. I forgot to take a picture of the little bird rubberstamp I used. It's been out of the packaging so I'm not sure who makes this one. It's those that you buy for about 1.50 and they come by themselves. All of this stuff is from my scrapbooking stash. I did find this cute paper pad at Ross for $3, it's by Basic Grey.
Everything here is from my stash too, except those adorable Pink Alphabet stickers, but daughter got me those at Hobby Lobby...by The Paper Studio.
WooHoo! It's Friday!!! I have been looking forward to this day ALL week!!! You see, I'm off! I'm using a vacation day to stay home and relax, and clean, and craft!!! I've done 2 of 3, can you guess which? Heck...there's all day to clean!!! LOL
My daughter loves to fish, and she's got this pretty fishing hook necklace she found online, as I thought of that, I remembered this verse in
Matthew 4:19, 'Follow me and I will make you Fishers of Men'.
Image is a Magnolia stamp.
I used supplies I had on hand....I didn't have red and blue stickers, so I used some white ones that I found in my old scrapbooking stash and colored them in w/ Sharpies!
These rub-on letters are by Making Memories...I've had these for years! I love them!
Have a blessed Friday! I'm looking forward to my longggg 3 day weekend!
