day 3 {quotes}

I have been reading a very great book that was given to me by my amazing cousin Jodie.  It is has inspired me to really re-think gift giving and Christmas this year.

One of the stories that was in there was about how his mother will write her favorite pieces of scripture onto index cards to create books.  Well, as a crafter, that was an amazing starting off point for me.  I couldn’t, however, just stick with plain index cards…  I made it my own.  Now, normally at this point I would start talking about the importance of writing things in your own handwriting.  Then I go and do something like this – hybrid…  yes.  I said it – I went hybrid for this one.  (Now, I am not saying it is great, but it is a start…)I did that for one reason – so that I could share some of it with you…

Here is what I did…

What I decided to do was take a plain and inexpensive photo album and create pages with quotes of inspiration that I could print and then embellish… 

So, this is my gift to you… today’s giveaway…  jpg’s of some of the pages.   It is my way of sharing what inspires me with you…  I hope that it inspires you to create and add to  your book with more quotes or ideas that inspire you. 

Enjoy… (right click then save as)


Ah, heck, why not…  I will send one copy of this amazing book by  Matthew West to a commenter on this post as well…  What is the point of sharing otherwise?????

NOW CLOSED  – Winner has been announced!
