What are you Reading????????

I had to get on and blog about an EXCELLENT book I am reading and close to the end....it is one that EVERYONE should read. Its Called "Soul Survivor" By James Ballou.

It is a compelling story of his upbringing to now. I am amazed how much he as a child endured and is here to tell his story and have such an amazing comfort in His Heavenly Father....It will tug at your heartstrings and make you proud of how he decided to make his life so different from what he knew as a boy to as a father himself.....The challenges and obsticals that could have tripped him up has made him the success he is today.....He has a beautiful family now and I have to say you MUST put this on your list.....

Where do you find it? Right here:


It will be the best money you ever spent on a book. In fact I am tempted to send it right on to Oprah...Amazing story.

Tuedays Stamping challenge

Over at my favorite hangout http://theshakerbox.com I have posted the Tuesday stamping challenge....(for those of you that like links:http://www.theshakerbox.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=14324&highlight=)]

Here are the rules:

Alrighty!!! So now the new rage is Inches. What are those you ask????

You know those REALLY cute stamps that you have that are small....about an inch! What to do with those you ask? Well So glad you stopped by!

Today's Tuesday Stamping Challenge goes like this......

Use three different papers/colors
Make layers.
Sand some of your cardstock
Use ribbon
Stamp your inch stamp on small piece of paper, mount it and pop it from the card!
Stamp the sentiment on the card.

Now you cannot stamp your image directly onto the card....it must be on its own throne!!!

Good luck and please link your creation when you leave your message if you choose to participate! Thanks for looking!
