One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award.

Trust in the Lord
Paper: PTI Kraft, Ripe Avocado, K&Company Life's Journey
Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 2
Ink: ODBD Olive, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Antique Linen
Accessories: Nesties Labels 3+5, mini paper roses (not Prima) , Zva Creative pearl flourish in Taupe Antique brass heart button, hand dyed seam binding, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, foam tape
So, what do you think? I think I really like the way it turned out...the seam binding has a little shimmer to it (I've used Glimmer Mist) to dye it and it works so nicely. A little tip, I bought two kinds of seam binding...one is a no name and it sucks....really, when it gets wet it kind of separates and gets not so nice looking. I also used some Hug n' Snug and it works awesome!!!! I will not try to save $ 1.00and go with just Hug n' Snug now, LOL!!!! You can buy it directly at http://www.zipperstop.com/ or go on eBay and search Hug n' Snug seam binding. It is tons of fun (and a little messy) to get all the different colors dyed, but it is so gorgeous when you are done. I have used Glimmer Mist, re-inkers and black tea....awesome results with all three choices!!!
All right, would you like to get some more inspiration? My design sisters have outdone themselves once again....we even have a scrapbook layout...how awesome is that? So why don't you leave me some love ;D;D and head on over to
Well, this is it for me for today, I have survived the first week back to school and I think I am back to a little more normal schedule ;D.
Have a fabulous weekend full of blessings!!
