Challenge #21- Fall Miracles

Hi Everyone it is Nicole writing you from above the Arctic Circle in Norway.  Well Fall is in full force around here.  For this month's Main Challenge I want us to be inspired by the Fall season and to look for those everyday miracles around us at this time of year. There is so much happening around us the weather is changing, school has started back up, new jobs, new friends... all kinds of blessings.  I want to challenge you to really look for a special moment from the fall season.... maybe something that you could have overlooked or taken for granted.

Some of you live Down Under or are from a place that doesn't have a lot of seasons... I know this challenge can be hard for you.  I would suggest maybe taking a little twist on the challenge for example you could scrap about a "miracle" from this time of year no matter what season it is where you live. For me the Fall season is all about harvest and giving thanks so  no matter where we live there is always a season of harvest both in nature and in our hearts.... really look and you will see God's everyday miracles in your life!

So no matter what situation you seem to be going through this Fall embrace the crisp air and know that you have a God that loves you so very much!  He is right there with you through it all no matter how hard life is at times.  Deuteronomy 31:8 - The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

Scrap Twist: This challenge I would like if you could use PAINT on your layout!  I know you might be afraid that you will mess it up but that is part of the charm of using paint on your layout!  Have fun and get creative!

I also want to encourage you that you do not have to do a layout, you can create mixed media projects, canvases or other projects that can remind you of those everyday miracles in your life.


And here are the layouts our Design Team created (hover your mouse over the picture to see what each Design Team member has to say about their project).



Our sponsor this month is Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits

Boys Rule Scrapbooks kits is a monthly scrapbook kit club for those of us who love to paper craft boy subjects.      Care and consideration is key as each kit is assembled for the boys.  Cool embellishments are paired with  handsome papers you will love to play with each month.

So sad I could not participate in this one either... but I can't complain. In October I traveled to Colorado Springs for work and also to Spain for vacations. In both destinations I enjoyed the wonderful colors of Fall that I don't really get to see in Puerto Rico ... so it was worth it and I'll probably scrap some photos in the future. Great job all participating ladies. :)
