Surely Goodness and Mercy

Catching up
It's wonderful to be back at my blog, finally! Lots to catch up on! What am I busy with? Well, let's see:
1. I was away on a work related trip last week (I felt strangely free without the family with me, but I think four days is long enough rest from them!!)
2. We leave for our trip to the East Coast of USA (where many of my blog friends live, but for us it's a 24 hour flight!) in five weeks or so, and I'm struggling to get all the accomodation and flights booked - urgh!!
3. Frantically getting together a winter wardrobe for the whole family - I've been bidding on ebay, borrowing, sorting, washing - we are not used to winter!!
4. Putting together my first Shutterfly Photobook! There is a 20% discount now till 6 Nov and I'm getting all my layouts for the past one and a half years in it!

And this is gonna be my cover page!This is the back page
You may recognised that I've used Sarah's lovely Wordart from her SimplySarah blog, love your word art, Sarah, thanks! I felt that I can't find better words than these beautiful verses to express how the Lord has blessed us, for our album cover! And I've used paper from ScarletHeelMedia's new full of life kit - look at the texture! Haven't figured out if I should add any elements to them, what do you think?
Well, here's the template for the cover page, hope it comes in useful for you some time. Thank you always for leaving a word for me, they mean a lot!This is now available as a set in the store here

  2. oh dear...that's a very beautiful cover and back page ;). I'm sure it's gonna turn up stunning. Too bad KL doesn't have shutter fly and i think shipping gonna kill me :(

  3. There are times when I would love to take a week's trip away from the family, but they would be calling me every half hour wanting to know something or another, LOL. Glad you enjoyed yours. East coast of US. Wow, you are doing some traveling. That is a long trip and if you fly over NW Florida give a wave and if I see you, I'll wave back, :) If you were coming to Florida though, you won't need winter clothing (just maybe a jacket or two). Your album is going to be absolutely stunning. I love that green with the photos and Sarah's wordart is so perfect. And thank you for another great template. (remember to wave)

  4. your covers are gorgeous - thanks so much for sharing the template.

    I'm jealous of a four day trip w/o the kids - but not of a 24 hour plane trip yet to come! Travel safe!

  13. Love your Shutterfly covers. One and a half years worth in one book! I'd never be able to get mine in. I did do a Shutterfly book this summer - it was on the building of our cabin. I am so pleased with it. Shutterfly rocks!
    And so do you - great template again - thanks! I have used several of your templates in scrapping my last year's Christmas photos.

  22. I live on the East Coast, well sort of. I'm just an hour north of Atlanta, Ga... :-)

    I think that the cover and back pages look great just as they are. They aren't typical "SB" pages. I think leaving them simple makes the outside of the book look more elegant. Leave the extra fancies for the inside with a more natural 3d effect. Just my 2 cents...

    I love the templates you give away!!! You are so kind!
    Blessings,
    Shawna
    PS I hope you all enjoy your trip to the US. and if you are going to be close to Atlanta feel free to contact me... if you need any ideas or tips or help! Take Care!

  29. Perfect Cover! Early this year I had a coupon for a free Shutterfly book - put together a book with a nice portrait of someone in my family on each page - each 2-page spread had word art for one of the fruits of the Spirit. It was a fun project to put together - thought you might like the idea. Used one textured paper in different hues, and one brush set and one style for a the pictures, one font set for all the verses - went together quickly to meet the deadline on the coupon.
