Week 5 Playing with Serenade with Flowerdisco and Friends!
The card above is my entry :) I am in LOVE with the new flower soft products! If you have not tried it you should! Its so fun!!! So, I cut my tree and then decided its fall I didnt just want green leaves so I used flower soft :) I mixed a couple of colors to come up with this fall color and I think it worked for me :)
The stamp I used is from a set that I won on a blog hop. The stamp is from Scrappy Moms :) Take the time to check out some of her stamps she has some really awesome collections!
I dont think I have mentioned that I am going to a cricut swarm next week in Houston! I am super duper excited about that! It is 50 cricut circle members and a guest for each member! I understand that someone from Provo Craft is going to come!! WOOHOOOO! I will take pictures and post them when we get back :)
I also am not sure if I have shared the volunteer work that I do in some local prisons. I am doing two projects right now and that is why I have not had as much scrapbook time as I would like to have :) However, I would not give up these programs. I work with an awesome group of vounteers. Each week we work with about 80 offenders. We start our night by having a panelist speak (I also am a panelist). We talk about our lives and share our "stories" with these men and women. First, I only told my brothers story. He was murdered working security in a gas station. Almost 10 years later I went to meet this man and from that I was able to find God and also forgivness for this man and for myself :) What a freeing experience that was!!! So after the panelist speaks we break up in smaller groups. Uusually 9-10 inmates and 1-3 vounteers. In the small groups we talk about our lessons and then the panelist. After that over the course of 14 weeks the inmates have a chance to tell their own "story". We see some of the hardest toughest men and women break down and finally lower the walls and hopefully offer them HOPE once they leave. The end is bittersweet. I am always so proud of the men and women but saying goodbye to them is hard after sharing such intimate parts of our lives. You talk about amazing transformations!!!! I am so blessed to see this happen. Just shows me what an awesome God we have!! So, back to why I am telling you about this. This program keeps me pretty busy between the driving and homework I just have been busy. So forgive me for being slow with things. I am really going to do better next week!!
Hugs to you all!!
