Beginning April 3, 2013......

Beginning April 3, 2013, I will be beginning a six week person and faith enhancing class series here at Catholic Scrapbooking.

What does it cost?   Not a thing for the class itself, this is free to anyone who would like to participate along with me.  You may wish to document your journey and I will provide a suggested list of supplies that we will use.

What will I gain?  A refreshed soul, and hopefully a clarified faith.

Details:    Each week a new, written, thought provoking lesson will be posted on this blog. You can choose to do as much as suggested or as little as you like. This short course will be based on the teachings, as I understand them, of the Catholic Church.  I welcome people of all faiths to participate and if your views differ, welcome open, respectful discussion.  The lessons will stay true to the catechism of the Catholic Church, conservative beliefs and lessons from the saints.  If this is for you, just leave a message below to let me know you will participate along

You will have the option to post your art in a on-line gallery and link it here!

What is next?  Look for a suggest list of supplies by the second of April.

Peace be with you..........

50 Days of Easter





Did you know that the Church celebrates 50 Days of Easter? The 40 days of Lent seem small when you consider the incredible gift of Jesus on the Cross. So now we continue in the Easter Season in the joy of knowing that we are blessed and forgiven. I have two layouts of Easter, that are very much the personality of my family, but share some of the gratitude I have for my blessings.

My DS is 10. He is a big guy at 5'3" and 127 lbs. He is athletic and outgoing AND right on the cusp of teenage behavior. That being said he is also still a little and naive boy. The Easter Bunny brought him a tiny replica of himself, which as you can see he just loved. At our house we love St. Nicholas and the Easter Bunny and we choose to believe in the simplicity and joyful times they bring. I love this time with my son.

The other layout is of my husband. This was just after Easter Services. He had just finished singing in the choir and was about ready to lose his voice after the rigorous schedule the choir follows during Holy Week. But he was not too tired to pose for this rather silly photograph! I love him as our spiritual leader and leader of silliness.

I hope each of you is having many blessings during the 50 days of Easter!

Arch for a Friend



I was to make an arch for a swap! Luckily I got a pal that wanted something that focused on Jesus. What more perfect time of year to remember the Holy Family and the amazing sacrifice for each of us of Jesus! I used public domain images and an arch cut out that I got from Crafty Secrets, a business based in Canada and Blaine, WA. On the back of the arches in the center I printed the Magnificat. It is mailed away to my dear pal now.
Thanks for stopping by and find inspiration this season!
