Class with Teresa Collins at Green Tangerine

We did 2 great projects. Both were family oriented. First class was an envelope book and then the other was an exclusive to Green Tangerine and was another great way to document and show off my family. I love playing with the Zutter Bind It All, so was awesome to see the projects that Teresa creates using the Zutter tools

Carol and Patti working on their albums........

Teresa showing us awesome ways to incorporate transparencies into our books.

My CKU buddy Maria joined us for the second class. It was so great to see you Maria. Have fun at Provo, I am so missing not being there already :(

Teresa helping Carol

We all decided to watch what Teresa was doing to Carol's book

Carol stamping her book.

Here we all are. Faye, Maria, Teresa, Patti and Carol. An awesome day with awesome friends. It was great. Can't wait to do it again.

Oh if you have never been to Green Tangerine, you need to visit. It truly is an awesome store with fabulous people.

These great flowers were from Lisa. She sent them along with her Disney swap. I absolutely loved them.

Leslie sent these awesome die cuts that will make their way into my CE Scrapbook.

God is in control .......AMEN

There are days, that you wish you didn't get up or at least open your email. Life is not always fair but one thing I am sure of is that God is in charge of my life and He will not forsake me. Day to day life is a struggle but when you put your faith in Him then it does make it a bit easier to deal with whatever comes your way.
Tonight these 2 verses spoke to my heart and affirmed that I was doing the right thing. That being said, it is important to pray for those who are hurting and somehow, someway God's light will shine through. Having a disease like Lupus, stress is not an option so it is with great faith and abandon that I turn it all over to God and trust that He alone can make things right.

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.—Ephesians 4:26-27, 31-32

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.—James 1:19-20

My prayer for all who read this is that it brings comfort and hope in the knowledge that God is ever with each of us and only wants the best for all involved.
