My Favorite Shows *Scrap Yourself Challenge #13*

I made a hybrid layout using Print Shop Pro.  I found a graphic I liked and printed it.  I cut out the head from the paper.  I then cut out the head from 1 of my pics.  I then used some DCWV patterned paper, blue cardstock, felt flowers, puffy alpha stickers and Studio 18 bling to embellish my layout.

On the TV screen, I wrote "My favorite TV shows are CSI, NCIS, Criminal Minds, The Unit, House, Bones, Law and Order, Outlaw, Lie To Me, and Grey's Anatomy."

Here is the Scrap Yourself challenge # 13:

All About Me Layouts

Title:  Life

Journaling from *Daily Word*:

I am enthusiastic about life!

My enthusiasm grows as I focus on God's presence within me and within others. As my appreciation of the sacredness of all expands, I not only dare to dream and set goals, but also to pursue them.

I bring enthusiasm and creativity to all I do. I actively engage in my relationships with family and friends. I find joy wherever I invest my time. Spirit within guides me in everyday tasks as well as in exciting new adventures.

This day and every day, I set my course on a journey of discovery. The goodness of God is constantly being revealed to me. I find great satisfaction in being an expression of divine goodness toward others.

Brothers and sisters, be all the more eager to confirm your call and election, for if you do this, you will never stumble.--2 Peter 1:10
