Chime In!

So, when I was a kid, my grandparents traveled the country full time in an RV. They would send me postards from where they were visiting, and my Mom would help me to poke red pushpins into the map from whereever the postcard came from. It was so fun to watch the map fill up with red dots. So, lets have some fun and build a map. Leave a comment, and let us know where in the world you are...and let's see how many places we can name. Sounds fun, huh?!

Featured Layout of the Week

Isn't this the coolest layout?! I love the photo- (could someone please tell me how to get that lighter look without overexposing?!), but I also love the way she framed the photo. And the journaling is just so cool, I am going it so that you can read it:

I don't wanna be a flame
I wanna be a raging fire.
Words from my favorite song by Ginny Owens.
Recently, I have become aware of just how much I want this,
No. . .I need this to be the way that I live. Everyday.
I don’t want to just go through the motions.
Be mediocre. Take things for granted.
I want to live life passionately.
Give my self completely to all that I do.
I wanna be a raging fire.

Awesome, right?!! What a blessing this layout was to me!! Congrats, Paula, on being this week's Featured Layout of the Week!!

Page Prompt

Last week's Chime In had to do with favorite verses. Your page prompt for the week follows that train of thought...Put together a page for your album that includes your favorite verse on it somewhere. It is amazing how well the Scriptures compliment your jouraling, or add to the point you are trying to make with your page. Be sure to share with us what you have done!!

Faithbuilder Friday

I love this link...I have actually used it for a page in my prayer journal. You can learn alot about the character and attributes of God, buy studying His names. This page lists some of the names Of God, as found in the Bible- along with their meanings. Very cool!!

Issue 5 is LIVE!

Issue 5 has published!! And in it you will find over 300 projects, cards,and layouts...not to mention countless articles, tips and tricks, product reviews, organizational ideas...and this month's Faith Column!

This month, we are talking about finding God, learning about His grace and His character, through nature. I have included tips and tricks, and several wonderful ideas to get you started. Want a peak? Sure you do! Well, here you go:

It’s that time of year. It’s warming up, the sun is
shining and people are headed outside. It’s time to think about
vacations, swimming, picnics and other outdoor fun. It’s time to think
about the One that created that outdoors, too. There’s so much to learn
and see of our Creator by enjoying what He made. It’s all right there,
evidence of His love, artistry, creativity, thoughtfulness, imagination
and so much more.

As scrapbookers, it’s so natural for us to
include events in our albums. This summer, let’s think about including
some natured inspired praise as well. Nature included in our scrapbooks
can do so much: praise, teach, and even allow us to explore the
personality and character of the Creator.

This month, our challenge here at AFP is to find God in Nature. Go outside, take some pictures, and create a wonderful layout. I know you have it in you! Then share it!! We want to see it, too!!
