Seasons of Change Blog Hop on Scrapbook Challenges

Scrapbook Challenges is having a Season of Change Blog Hop. (http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/)
To start click on Pamela's blog: http://www.pamelasworldofscrap.blogspot.com/ and then
(http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/forum/topics/seasons-of-change-hop-on) to hop on if you'd like to join in on the fun!

Here's the sketch:

My Take:

This LO is titled Daddy Thru The Years cuz the top pic is of my dad reading behind his apartment in Atlanta, GA in 1975 when he & my mom were students at Atlanta Christian College. The bottom picture is of Tammy, Daddy, Shirley Colpitts, & Lura Kelly, either Shirley or Lura hosted a baby shower for Tyler at their house in the summer of 2007. The velllum says, "Friends, they are kind at each other's hopes, they cherish each other's desires.- Thoreau." I'm also using this LO for Scrappin-in-Chattin's Leaves LO that's why the leaves are on the left hand side.

Here's a birthday card I also made today:
Front Cover                  
I made this birthday card for a friend who's working in Africa and won't be home for her birthday. The vellum quote says: "Wherever you are, it is your friends who make your world. William James." The background paper itself has several verses written in the paper. One of them is "This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24 TFL and enjoy the blog hop if you decide to join! Have a good Labor Day weekend!
