Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Gods letter and footprints!

Hello everyone!

My mom is making a beach themed basket for her friend..she wanted to do a bottle with etched footprints so I told her I would help with that....because she has never done it before...

This is just a start of the bottle , she is going to add some sand inside the bottle and some seashells....which I think will look cool...we did one bottle the other day but did not quite turn out the way we wanted it I redid it.

I used NA for the feet (going up the bottle ) hope you can see it well...I cut them out @ .3/4" and then etched them with etching cream. very simple technique.

I love it. I then tied some rope and a footprints charm that I found in the baby section at michaels.....

Inside is a letter from god that reads:


You may not know me, but I know everything about you psalm 139:1 I know when
you sit down and rise up. I am fimilar with all your ways. Even the very hairs on your head are numbered. For you were made in my image.

Genesis 1:27 In me you live and move and have your being.

Acts 17:28 For you are my offspring. I knew you even before you were conceived.

Jeremiah 1:4-5 I chose you when I planned creation........etc...

This has alot more to it but I hope you get the idea.....her friend knows this letter very well so I printed this letter on cream paper, torn the edges and inked then rolled it up and tied raffia to it and stuck it in the bottle....I know she will love it...then my mom is putting it in a basket filled with sand and shells ....thanks for stopping by!
