What a weekend!!!

Whew! I'm still trying to recover! LOL!

All the grands were here this weekend...and we were soooooooo busy! Lots to do, I tell ya! We played with the foamy sticky things, made shrinky dinks, swam in the pool, cooked on the grill, popped popcorn, put together puzzles, and a multitude of other things. They left late yesterday afternoon to go home, and I'm here to tell you I'm still whipped. Too much action for this old lady! LOL~

Yesterday morning VERY early before anyone else got up, Dylan (my 9 year-old grandson) and I were up and in my studio. Together, we made this little prayer book for him before they went to church. He was soooo excited about it. I thought of the idea the night before after everyone was asleep. I remembered these awesome bible verse stamps I bought from Julee at Verve a month or so ago. And I thought it would be just the perfect project for us this morning!

Each page is cut from a blue cardstock which measures 2.5" x 4". The white cardstock we stamped on was 1/8" smaller for layering. On the front cover we stamped the cross from Notes of Prayer with VersaMark Ink and embossed it with silver embossing powder.

Each of the pages was stamped with a different verse from the Plain Janes by Verve. I just love every one of them!

The book is held together with a blue brad in the corner. He didn't want ribbon. I get it. He's a boy! :-) The good thing is that we can add to it as I acquire more bible verse stamps. Maybe that means I should do some more shopping, huh?

Dylan was SO proud of his book. He took it to church with him to show off in his Sunday school class.

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back soon with something new. Until then...
