KIDS - Project Life Filler Card with Bonnie

I want to share with you one of my pocket filler cards (6x4)
for the PDE LINKY PARTY this week.

Here's the theme for this week:

Here is my Project Life Filler Card:

I love this picture of Bonnie!
The chipboard Polaroid frame is from the Studio Calico PL Kit
of the month and so is the chipboard heart. 

Hope you'll link up your project at
And don't forget to link up your Project Life pages at

Play Time

Here is Tom playing XBox One with our son Jimmy through the magic of internet.
(We are in South Carolina. Jimmy is in Kansas.)
I think I have just as much fun watching them as they do playing.

Photo A Day... Far Away

January 23, 2015
Photo a Day
Far Away

I was really tempted to use a photo from when we lived in Alaska for today's photo prompt. Alaska is so far away from where we are now, and it was very beautiful there. But because I'm trying my best not to pull out archive photos for the photo of the day prompts (but not saying that I never will), I took a picture of the only thing near me that resembled any distance at all, and that was looking down our street.

Looks like that road goes on forever, doesn't it?
Thanks for stopping by.
Smiles :) Janis

Photo a Day... Collection

January 22, 2015
Photo a Day

PART of my collection of Bibles.
I don't know why I am drawn to buying them.
They all say the same thing - just in different translations.
When we moved to Alaska, I gave away a bunch of my Bibles to friends
and Good Will. But I couldn't get rid of these. They are very special.

The black one is Tom's as well as one of the skinny ones too
from when we used to go to Grace Baptist Church when the kids were little.

The Blue one is one of the kids from when they were little.

The small green one is Jimmy's Army Bible.

The other green one is the first Bible I ever got. It was a gift one Christmas from "Santa."

I love the brown one on the end. The ink for the words is in brown which is very pleasing to my eyes, and it's the New Century Version which is my favorite.

The Amplified Bible is good for when I need more information on what something means.

My big fat blue one is in my craft room right now. It's what I've been using lately for Scripture Memory Verses because it's New International Version and LARGE PRINT. I got it at the Dollar General a couple of years ago for about $3.

I do want a New American Standard Version. Don't have that, and I'm doing one of Kay Arthur's Precept Bible Studies on Daniel and she uses that version. It would be nice to have the same translation when doing my homework. But not necessary.

Collections... I have so many:

China from our wedding, my parents', my in-law's, my grandmothers, my great grandmother's...

Scrapbooking paper galore

Games - board games, card games, puzzles - they always get pulled out during family gatherings.

Rocks - yes, I tend to pick up rocks in the different places we live and save them as a memory trigger.

DVDs, Books...

Oh well, it's good to know what our interests are.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Enjoy your day!
:) Janis

Happy Birthday!

Is it your birthday?
If it is... Happy Birthday!
If it's not... Happy Un-Birthday!

Today is our favorite Son-in-Law's birthday.
Aaron is loving, strong, supportive, and smart.
He's the kind of guy who's smile can light up a room,
and the kind of guy you don't want to meet in a dark alley if you have ill intentions, because he can mess you up. LOL

Happy Birthday, Aaron!
Love you!

Watercolor Pages in my new Art Journal

Kati came over Monday and gave me a watercolor class.
She is so artistic. It's amazing.
I decided to go ahead and get a watercolor journal and stop using my spiral notebook so I could use the watercolors and not wrinkle the pages so much.
I have a lot to learn, but for a beginner, I'm very happy.

Here are my first 3 pages for
Hide His Word in my HeART.

I used stamps from Craftin Desert Divas (Week 2 - Tag It Set)
Mary's Cardz TV Stamps (Week 3 - Up & Away & Snail Mail)

Week 1 Psalm 119:105
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

Week 2 Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding.

Week 3   1 Thessalonians 5:17
Pray continually.

Thanks for stopping by.
:) Janis

P.S. I showed my pages to Bonnie. She said sunshine, I had to help her with figure out the heart shapes, and for the girl she said, "Bonnie!"  

I love my Bonnie. She's so cute!

I couldn't decide which one was better to use for the "in a row" prompt today,
so here are them both:
