|hope your friday has been good!! enjoy the weekend!!!|
|yea! steelers!!! they’re heading to the superbowl….ohh ya!!!|
|ok. so, as mentioned before in a couple different posts,this year, i am “refocusing and renewing” my relationship with Christ this year.
to encourage this process,
i am participating in a few different scripture challenges.
(of course, it also qualifies for my sunday scrappin)
the above layout is my first for the Scripture Challenge at faithsisters.com
the words for this week were “faith & kindness”.
the verses that i chose: Psalm 145:17 & James 2:26
i did some cloud layering with the owls. love the owls!!
pleated some ribbon at the bottom.
|i am also participating in the His Holy Name Challenge at faithsisters.com this week’s name was “holy”.
i chose: Revelation 4:8b & Isaiah 6:3b
loved using the thicker stickers for holy. loooove those.
|another challenge, over at LPMblog for scripture memorization. the verse i chose to memorize was: Psalm 51:10.
i kept this memory verse layout, small, like baseball card size.
easy to attach to a ring and keep with me, to refresh my memory when learning each verse.
|i didn’t want to use too many embellishments. wanted to keep it more flat, so that it could easily be portable. plus, i want the scripture to be the key point, without embellishments distracting from it.
well, that is how i spent my sunday afternoon.
of course now, i am watching Big Ben with my hubby….go Steelers!!!
|well, as posted here, i am trying to refocus my attention on my relationship with Christ this year. the verse that i have chosen for this month, (for the LPM scripture memorization challenge) is:
|that’s right. i baked a cake in my crockpot, (slow cooker).
i had been looking through some of my cookbooks and found this recipe.
i wanted to use what i had on hand already, so i adjusted it slightly….i have included that in the recipe.
the cake consistency was incredibly light and airy. i was really surprised that it worked. in fact, my hubby came home from work and asked what was in the crockpot….i told him i was baking a cake and he replied “no way”. (to which i answered “yes way”)…..
here’s the recipe:

so, that’s all i have for today! cold weather makes me want to bake. we also tried another new recipe for supper, Gourmet Chicken Pizza, which we liked also….i found that recipe on www.allrecipes.com (both recipes are peanut-free, for those with peanut allergies)
i have lots of scrapping that i would like to accomplish. american idol to watch. treadmill to walk. devotions to have. neighborhood newsletter to compose and edit.
the good news, school is cancelled for tomorrow because of the snow and bitter temperatures….sleeping in tomorrow!!!
