Rejoice Daily Altered Message Board

My altered message board was up on the Jillibean blog yesterday. It was part of our designer challenge this month, to use a quote. I found this message board at Goodwill for $1.00 and it looked like this:

So I added a layered flower focal point,

and chose a favorite bible verse, Psalm 118:4

Added some more Pea Pod and sticker layers with a couple doilies...
And Presto! a fabulous new message center for the Folchert House!
 Materials List: Upcycled Message Board; Jillibean Soup/Grandma's Lima Bean Soup-Lean Ham, Dry Lima Bean, Dried Marjoram, Small Onion, Vegetable Bouillon, Leek Bulb, Bite Size Bits, Pea Pod/DieCuts & 12x12 Cardstock Stickers; Jillibean Soup/Cool Beans Buttons/Vintage, Diced Denim/Alphabeans; White doily, Want 2 Scrap/Pearls; Mod Podge

So what do you think, would love to hear what altered projects you are working on. Lots of Christmas gifts being created I'm sure! I will be back before Christmas with a couple cards. Happy Holidays and best wishes on all the Christmas preparations!

Maya Road & Jillibean Soup Projects

All week on the Jillibean Soup Blog and the Maya Road blog they have been sharing projects that resulted from a product swap. What a combination of inspiration has occurred! So many amazing projects from both design teams, you must go see for yourself!

A few of my projects were shared on the Jillibean blog today in this post: Bean Talk Blog I had fun creating some altered coffee cup photo holders from a chipboard coaster album for Christmas gifts and a fun butterfly card. So if you are a family member and you see your initials then yes this coffee cup photo holder is probably for you :) Surprise! Consider it an early Christmas gift preview:

The Materials list for all of these is on the Jillibean blog here.

Let me know which one you like best, I can't decide which one I like best. :)

Sketch Challenge - Thanksgiving Card

I was so happy to see that Pamela Young is sharing her sketches again from her blog. You can find her here: Pamela's World of Scrap She had this sketch up for her October challenge:

I decided to play along and did a fun Thanksgiving card using some brand new Jillibean Soup. I really love the new "pie chart" trend and decided to make mine an actual pie, yum.

Hope you have a Happy Halloween!
I will post Pumpkin farm and Halloween photos soon, I promise. :)

We are planning our annual trip to the Leed's Pumpkin Farm this weekend and I can't wait! So I thought I would share a Jillibean Soup card that shares some of my October Favorites...

Speaking of Love Stories, Sat. Oct. 6th  is my 5th Wedding Anniversary and I would like to say Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband Scott! Our love story is currently an ongoing saga of a potty-training 3 and a half yr. old boy and a 17 year old daughter prepping for her Senior pictures with a sprained ankle ski boot brace (Oh and Homecoming is next week..). Never a dull moment around here but I am happy that we keep each other sane. I am blessed to have him.
