Challenge #10

Hello, Lisa here! As with last month, there will only be one challenge this month, due on Nov. 25th. We are also having another "word of the month". We encourage you to think about this word and create something with your interpretation. This would be a great time to make a tag or maybe an art journal page – whatever suits you. We will be showcasing some of your word projects here on the blog throughout the month, but they are not eligible for the prize – only the challenge.

INSPIRING: What inspires you? Certain people? Those everyday miracles around us? Creation? God's character? What are your thoughts on this? Show us with a project!

CHALLENGE #10: Nothing speaks of God's miracles and blessing more than nature. God created a world full of wonders and they are all around us. In the Bible Jesus says that if the people stop singing God's praises even the rocks will cry out… Luke 19:40 (NIV) "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." Your challenge is to find His miracles in the natural world and what they mean to you. It could be through a beautiful landscape or the amazing intricacy of a flower. Open your eyes and camera to the created world around us. You may be surprised at what you find!

Scrap Twist – Re-purpose something to use as part of your layout. It could be a piece of vintage ephemera or an ad from your junk-mail. Or parts of packaging  or other "non-scrapbooking" supplies. Get creative!

Please create a layout or project that deals with nature and uses the scrapping twist of re-purposed stuff. Link your project here by November 25th for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Design by Diana or a guest DT spot! 

Here is my sample featuring the mighty Sequoia tree (a kind of redwood). They are truly awe-inspiring! My re-purposed parts are the mailing tags, a clothing tag, and kraft paper from some packaging.

Some really fantastic photos shown here. The layouts are great too, but seeing God's handiwork in all it's beauty is what truly captured my heart this morning. Thanks for each reminder ladies. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of you create. Happy Scrapping!

Obviously not playing along for the prize, but wanted to show my support for the challenge and make a layout. Thanks for having me with you this week! :)
