one purpose *SFTIO October Purpose Kit*

So…have you been thinking about your purpose?

The Scrapbooking From the Inside Out Purpose kit really had me thinking.

Practically speaking, I could say I have a whole lot of purposes – wife, mom, friend, artist, employee, Life Group leader…the list could really be endless .

But the common thread in each of these, the place I strive (often unsuccessfully) to the best of my ability is to reflect the Grace and Love of the God I serve. Its hard sometimes to set myself aside, to align my longings and my life to the flow of God.

Still, it is the purpose I believe I was made for…

The colors in this kit are SO remarkable and on trend…for example, there is a huge push with yellow and charcoal. I loved how cozy and deep they felt…and how sophisticated.

There is a lot of cut work on this layout…that yellow border..but OH, how rewarding it is to see it against the charcoal cardstock.

I LOVED the butterflies on the Graphic 35 paper as well..beautiful to cut out a ton of them and scatter them about. I also ventured into making some of my own flowers. I’ve been experimenting with some techniques I learned at CKC in August and liking them enough to start using them on layouts.

And, hey, with two boys in my house, its not often that I get to scrapbook intricately cut flowers or butterflies on my layouts!!! So WOOHOO for getting to do something girly and sophisticated!

Peace, ya’ll!!

These layouts that you're creating are just beautiful. I haven't found my purpose yet, but I'm working on it daily!

stunning! Just stunning! One day I'll figure out my purpose. I want to be the person God wants me to be... but I still have to figure out exactly what that means for me.
