Scrapbooking

Hi I just wanted to share a few scrapbook pages I've been working on over the last few months. I've been trying to work on my baby's album. I've really enjoyed keeping these pages pretty simple, to not only focus on the photos, but also to get them done faster! These are a few favorites.

The Gardens

Here's a series of paintings I've been wanting to do for a long time. Awhile ago I read an article about the atonement, and how we wouldn't have needed Christ to atone for our sins if Adam and Eve hadn't partaken of the fruit of good and evil, and how both of those things were part of Heavenly Father's plan for us. I can't remember where I was reading about this, probably in the Ensign magazine, but basically the Fall, Atonement, and Resurrection are interrelated. It made me think about how they all happened in gardens, and the idea for these paintings has been mulling in the back of my head for awhile. I liked the idea of no people in the paintings, just because it is a little different, and it helps you to think about the setting that Adam and Eve and Christ were in during these most important events in history. So here is The Garden of Eden, The Garden of Gethsemane, and the Garden Tomb.
I found a scripture that illustrates this concept in 1 Corinthians 15:20-21:

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Temple Gift Idea

Here's a gift I made for a wedding we went to recently. I changed the date and names, but I got this printed, and framed it, and I hope they liked it! I used my Redlands temple element, but made it look more graphic.

Holy Ghost Signal

Hi! I haven't blogged for a long time. I was trying to create a store that would motivate me to design more, but it was too time consuming for me, so I am now just selling a few things right from the blog. I do miss blogging and sharing what I've been working on, so I thought I would just start sharing things that I've been doing!

Last weekend I had two nieces baptized members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was honored to be asked to give the Holy Ghost talk. There are so many Holy Ghost talks out there that are so cute, but I really wanted to personalize my talk. I did use a few props, including a flashlight, representing when we seek guidance, and a blanket, when we receive comfort. I also made a bookmark, talking about the promptings we get from the Holy Ghost. I got the idea Camille's Casa blog. But I wanted to make it a little more scrappy, so here's the one I made. I just printed it out on a 4x6 piece of photo paper, and cut in half! If you want to use it, just right click, and save!
