Project - Ad Challenge 8/8: You can't take this away from me
posted 08/11/05 at 04:57 PM
This is for the ad challenge week of 8/8. Patterned paper is Anna Griffin (floral) and mari-mi (checks); cardstock is textured bazzill. Ribbon is Heidi Swapp (dot) and Offray (striped). Font for journaling is CBX brushfire; fonts for title are bonnymeade (li'l davis), franklin (MM), and hero arts. Stitch stamp is hero arts. File tab is HS and font for “More” is Stampin' Up stamp (as is all stamp ink). Journaling block is double layered; hence, the “more” tab and brad to allow looking underneath. Flowers cut using coluzzle template. Journaling reads in part: “ As our anniversary approached, so did Vitto's malpractice trial. For reasons too complicated go into here, it was much scarier than it should hae been……everything we had worked so hard for during our marriage could be on the line! But as the time for trial drew nearer, a strange thing happened to me; I started to feel a sense of peace about the whole thing. I found myself attending Mass more frequently and found myself praying about it a lot. But oddly enough, my prayers were not for the verdict to ”go our way“. Of course I would have been thrilled for that to happen; however, I found myself asking God to give us PEACE during the proceedings and to give us the strength to handle whatever happened. I also found myself praying for the lady who was suing Vitto, too. I asked the same things for her that I asked for our family: peace and strength……for AS LONG AS WE HAVE EACH OTHER WE WILL BE O.K.”
