Serendipity Scrapbooks

Well, this is one of my favorite places to shop...definitely my favorite spot for scrapbooking supplies! My good friend Kristen owns this online store and she has the coolest products available. One of the newer things she has that I want to order are these little chipboard albums...there are a few designs(like a game controller) or you can choose a word book...she has some like All Star or Woof, OR you can custom order a someone's name...which is nice for those of us with names you don't see often.
One of my favorite new items is called Glimmer Mist...this is a spray that has some color and some shimmer in it all in one...Looks beautiful! We may even try spraying it onto our AWANA Grand Prix cars for that metallic kind of look. Check it out....I have a link to the pink, but she carries a few different colors...I am really liking the Sea Glass and Lily Pad too!

Speaking of scrapbooking, while it is a great hobby and a creative outlet for me, I also use it as a way to document the milestones in our children's everyday lives as well as their spiritual lives. I haven't had a chance to do the layouts yet from my son's 13th birthday, but that was a fun Milestone in his life that we celebrated for a week...each day had some special little activity or gift, with bigger things happening on his actual birthday and for the parties we did. One thing that I am particularly looking forward to documenting was a surprise party for Joshua at our church...while that was a fun thing, the thing I am most looking forward to documenting is the letters I asked for some godly men to write to Joshua offering their advice and suggestions for walking a life of faith and remaining close to Christ...these are such a precious treasure, each one as unique as the man who wrote it. I hope he will look back on these and that they will be an anchor to him throughout the ups and downs of life.
Grace and Peace to you!
