Mod Podge Crazy!

Hello Everyone!

Today I have gone Mod Podge crazy!  Honestly, I don't ever remember even using Mod Podge.  That is something Karlee likes to use but I usually stay far away!  LOL!  I don't like messy things.  What I found today was that it wasn't messy at all and took hardly any time!  Here are the two projects I finished within an hour!

Step #1:
I first bought my chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby for $1 a piece!  They are usually $1.99 but were on sale for 50% off!

Step #2: 
Pick your patterned paper.  Trace it from the chipboard.  Then manually cut it out!  Sorry, you cannot use your diecut machine for this one!

Step #3:
Apply a THIN coat of Mod Podge to the chipboard letter.  If you do not want your paper to bubble then you need to make sure your coat is super thin!!

Step #4:
Put your cut out patterned paper over the mod podged chipboard and smooth out with your hand.  

Step #5:
Apply another THIN coat of mod podge on top of the paper.  

Step 6: 
Let the paper dry and you are finished!!  VOILA!!

Hope you all have a GREAT day and enjoyed my simple project!!

Hello Everyone!!

Life has been super busy so I haven't been blogging much lately.  We went to New Orleans for Fall Break and now we are back to the craziness of October!!

Just a quick update on my friend with Colon Cancer.  I want to first thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts.  She got her results back about a week ago and her cancer has spread.  It is Stage 3 and in her lymph nodes.  She has about a year of chemo and surgery ahead of her but she is a woman of great faith and still feels a sweet peace.  Please continue to keep my friend Laura in your prayers and thoughts.  Thank you so much!!

I almost completely forgot to pick a winner for the $50 Close to My Heart Giveaway donated by Joy Tracey!  Please take a minute to check out her awesome, informative, and creative blog!  I've known Joy for years and am always impressed by her crafting talent.

Prayers for a Dear Friend

Hello Everyone!

I have a dear friend who was just diagnosed with cancer.  If you could all take a minute today and say a prayer for her.  She is having a PET scan right now to see if the cancer has spread.  We are praying that it hasn't and that she can just have surgery to remove the cancerous tumor.  I believe in the power of prayer and I know that our Heavenly Father does hear us and answers us.  Thank you so much everyone!

Big hugs!
