Template Pack #33-40 and a Freebie

Well I'm still waiting to hear if Best Buy can recover the files that I couldn't access on my external hard drive. Lesson learned: I now have two external hard drives. I always backed up the things (like pictures and scrapbook pages) on a flash drive also, but I didn't ever backup my design stuff. I didn't think it would be the end of the world if I lost it (which it's not), but come to find out I'm pretty sad if I do lose it. So I'll get back to my Articles of Faith book eventually but I might have to start over, so it'll take awhile.
In the mean time I have a new template pack this week at Scrappin Digi Kreations and it's 40% off. It has 8 templates in psd and png formats. 4 of the templates are brand new, never before released on my blog. The other 4 were freebies, but no longer available for download.

Here are the layouts that I based the templates off of:

And here is a little freebie for you. It is part of the Supa Digi Kit at Scrappin Digi Kreations.

And here are the layouts (a little bigger) that I haven't posted on the blog yet. They are all using Jewel Scraps's new kit "My Backyard," available at Enchanted Studio Scraps.

Well I don't have my Articles of Faith booklet done. It was taking a bit longer than I expected, but I was a little over half way done. Then I ran into some major problems with my external hard drive. I WAS going to try and get the twenty 5x7 pages done by next week, but I'm not sure anymore. I've got to figure out what's going on with my external hard drive (I'm kicking myself that I didn't get two.) Anyway, I'm a little frustrated but hopefully I'll be back soonish.

Template #35

Hope everyone is having a fun Labor day--we're off to the beach! Woohoo! It's my favorite place to be.

I did a layout using Jewel Scraps' contribution to the "Happy Birthday" collab at Enchanted Studio Scraps. If you sign up to ESS forums and state your birthday you should receive all the parts for FREE on your birthday! I did recolor a few items.
And here is the freebie template for you! Have a great day:)

Articles of Faith Part 4

Well I finished my "Articles of Faith" series! Yea! The fourth part is available at Scrappin Digi Kreations. It illustrates Articles of Faith #10-13.

You can also get all four parts together in a Mega Kit at a discounted rate, plus it is 40% off for one week!

I'm going to be making brag-book size booklet of the Articles of Faith, hopefully this week. In case you are wondering, the Articles of Faith are just some concise statements of what Mormons believe. I got an email this morning and it had a spoof on the Articles of Faith. Hopefully it doesn't offend anyone, because while I believe that the Articles of Faith are scripture, I can still have a sense of humor about our Mormon culture. So here's the real Articles of Faith first, and the spoof second.

Articles of Faith

1 We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

2 We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.

3 We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

4 We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

5 We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

6 We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

7 We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.

8 We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

9 We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

10 We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; thatZion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will dreign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

11 We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

13 We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

All right and here's the funny one and I don't know who wrote this so sorry I can't give them credit. It is pretty funny if you our familiar with Mormon/LDS culture.

Articles of Faith of Mormon Culture

1. We believe in SUVs and minivans, as the form of transportation, and in knee length shorts, which are always nice, and in the multilevel marking.

2. We believe that church ball players should be punished for their own fouls, and not for unsportsmanlike aggression.

3. We believe that through bread crumbs, cheese, creamy soups, and rice all casseroles can be saved through obedience to ward cookbooks and creativity in the mixing bowl.

4. We believe that the first layers and ingredients of the Dip are: first, beans; second, cheese; third, chopped tomatoes; fourth, the gift of sour cream; fifth, olives; sixth, salsa; seventh, guacamole, that is, if you have it.

5. We believe that a Mormon should have a distinguished or a cute name, that it is appropriate to name a child after a church leader or a historical figure including an ancestor, that alternative spellings and French prefixes only add to a name, and that when referring to the names of General Authorities, middle initials should be a part thereof.

6. We believe in the same wall decor that exists in many Mormon homes, namely, framed family proclamations, vinyl lettering, inspirational word signs, family photos, pictures of temples and Jesus, and so forth.

7. We believe in the gift of the re-gift, church books, crafts, family photos, baked goods, emergency supply kits, and so forth.

8. We believe in sparkling grape juice so long as it is nonalcoholic; we also believe in bringing root beer and sprite to ward parties.

9. We believe in all that we have scrapbooked, all that we will now scrapbook, and we believe that we will yet scrapbook many great and important things pertaining to our family, friends, pets, and vacations.

10. We believe in the literal mixing of ketchup and mayo and in the generous application of ranch dressing; that CBAs (church-based acronyms) will be used to describe YM/YW, PEC, the Y, NCMO, and CTR; that Mitt Romney will get Mormons to vote for him any time he runs; and, that the Mormons will enjoy reading Twilight and The Work and the Glory.

11. We claim the privilege of trying to identify common acquaintances with any visitor at church, and allow all other people at church the same privilege, and let them name drop the names of Famous and general authorities how, where, or what they may.

12. We believe in being subject to scoutmasters, pampered chef hostesses, and the writers of the U.S. News and World Report Rankings for professional schools, and in obeying, honoring, and sustaining Glenn Beck.

13. We believe in being above average, good at crafts, optimistic, and being fifteen minutes late everywhere we go. Indeed, we may say that we follow BYU football. We believe rumors about famous people joining the church, we hope to meet the three Nephites, we have endured many pyramid schemes, and hope to be able to endure all pyramid schemes. If there is anything cheap, free, sold in bulk, or given away when somebody is moving, we seek after these things.
