Cute Pop Up Card! It's not as hard as it looks!

Lately I have been filled with such emotion that I find myself not knowing when to laugh or when to cry. I find myself filled with anger at the paths that I know only I have chosen to take in my life. I have felt so alone - with no one to reach out to. Then I remembered ... I am never alone. He is with me all of the time - all I need to do is reach out. He hears me.
I'm in need of an attitude adjustment. I've been wallowing in emotions that will harm me and prevent me from being an effective witness You. Also, I have taken my frustrations out of my family with my negative mind-set and words. That is not who I am or who I want to be.
Forgive me, Lord, and soften my bad attitude - toward You, toward others and toward my circumstances. I might not be able to change the circumstances, but I can change how I view them and how I respond to them.

Here are some projects that I have been playing with. The first is a brag book that my friend Michelle Deslandes showed our craft group how to do. They are so fun that I can't wait to add photos and journaling to the inside.

Here is a photo frame that I made for my sister in law for her birthday.

I don't know what happened to the lighting when I took this picture. It is a hershey kiss holder which makes such cute party favors!!
