Your lettering in that top piece is outstanding!
We missed your selfie at Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens. Thanks for the theme suggestion though. We all had such fun with it. Now we've moved on to flowers!

Some lovely work here this week, Arnoldo. Love the journal page - a reminder that no matter what we are going through, God is there and desires our hearts to praise Him.
Take care. God bless.

Absolutely wonderful, Arnoldo! You are SO incredibly creative, and I thank you for sharing your talents with us. Are your girls artsy like you are? I often wonder if those talents carry over to our kids. Neither of my girls are into making cards, but maybe when they're older they will enjoy scrapbooking. In all honesty, I wasn't doing this when I was their age either. Just curious if your girls inherited your talent. Hope you're having a blessed week.

You have been busy! I love the collection of birthday cards. That journal page is reminiscent of the posters we use to have at church in the youth room back in the mid 1970s. Cool. Thanks for the memory. Creative Blessings! Kelly #67
