teacher gift

Good morning stampers! I wanted to make Kyler's teacher for this year a little back to school gift for a couple of reasons. One...it is the beginning of a new school year you know. And, two...she is a new teacher, both to the school and teaching (although she is a mom of 3) so she needs something neato to start the year right? So, this little comp book was born.

I got this book (blank pages...4x6 size) in my Sept 3LD kit but didn't want to use the Chickadee on it so I decided to pull out one of the several scripture sets that I have from SNSS. The scripture reads..."Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." Philippians 4:6 I really like this verse because it says to me...just do it...do it with God but just do it! I know this is a little plain but I don't know the new teacher so I thought I'd go plain. While you probably can't see it I did use my Nestabilities to emboss the scripture layer and then, as you can see, added several more layers to the main image. I'm just sitting here thinking about it and wonder if I added some doodling to the orange scallop that I'd like it better. I may have to try that!

Anyway, that is it for today girls! Tomorrow is the Belli Challenge. I'm all set and ready to share with you. Okay, actually...I'm a dork because I thought this weeks challenge was for last week so had it ready to go but then realized my mistake and didn't have anything for last week. Doh Anyway, stay tuned tomorrow!

I hope you all have a super Tuesday!

TFS!!! You are so kind to think of this teacher. She is going to love it.
Thanks for the scripture also. I have been finding a lot of hope in every scripture that people have been putting up.
