Scrapping Everyday Miracles July Challenge...A Few of My Favorite Things

It's another month (my does time fly) and that means it's time for another challenge at
Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

What's the challenge you ask...
well here you go!

"These Are A Few of My Favorite Things"

Cara brings you the Main Challenge this month and this is what she has to say..."I love learning new things about people, and so I wanted to do a fun challenge about getting to know someone by finding out what their most favorite things are."

So here's my Challenge: Create a layout about someone's "favorites" can be a page about yourself, your child, your best friend, your spouse, your parent....
well, you get the can be about anyone you choose. I think hearing what people enjoy about life can be one of the greatest ways to get to know the heart of that person. It can also be a great way to connect with someone...when we take the time to do things they enjoy, we can bless them. 

The Scrap Twist that you need to include on your project is to use some kind of "office supply item"---some ideas would be paper clips, binder clips, or staples. 

Have fun with this challenge as you show the personality of the person you scrap about through the things they love most! I'm excited to see what you come up with.

And to give you a bit of inspiration....

Here is my take on this month's challenge.

My middle daughter is a committed soccer player. She plays for both her club team and was recently chosen by our state to play for them as well.
She can be found on a field just about everyday of the week with a ball at her feet.

To her there is no better place to be than on the field.

I used 7 Dots Studio paper for my base. There is some Tim Holtz Washi Tape covered with Gesso.
Misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow mist.

Prima Old Road ink through a Donna Downey stencil.
My office supplies were staples added as embellishments.

Our gracious sponsor this month is...

Pure Painted Signs

Here's what Celisa has to share about her company:

My name is Celisa Schumpert and I am a wife, a mom and I have a love for all things creative.  My husband and I were blessed to spend over 20 years in youth ministry before helping begin a start up church about 3 years ago that has grown to about 1700 weekly attendance, it has been awesome watching God at work in our new adventure.  I am also a mom to three children 20, 16 and 8.  Around 7 years ago we were blessed to bring home our 8 year old from China and it doing so developed a heart for orphans and a desire to help them find forever families.  As a result, I wanted to start a business that could give to that purpose.  I am blessed to combine my two passions into my relatively new business, Pure Painted Signs.  I have always loved painting and with this endeavor I am able to give 10% to my church and 40% to orphan causes around the world, as well as supporting families who are seeking to adopt.
