Prayer Box

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers, & Fellow Crafters

My project for the month of February was to complete a Prayer/Encouragement box.  I joined Qadirah over at ModPodge Designs Scraps, for a worthy cause to help a family and community deal with their losses.  Too often young lives are taken away from us by senseless crime.  We created prayer boxes filled with prayers, poems and "in memory" sayings.  As many projects as I've done, this is my first one that I had to mail to be given to someone else.  I had to break out my shell at some point right?

I used a basic white box from Michaels Arts & Crafts store and covered it with paper.  I divided the box into 4 sections:  Encourage, Faith, Healing and Peace.  I placed scriptures, poems, and quotes on the tabs and pages.  I also left blank lined pages and places for pictures.  I forgot to take a picture of all the sides of the box but here's what I do have:

Thank you for stopping by.  Ahh, that wonderful time of the year is upon me where I must start planning for a 4 day March Scrapbook Retreat.  It's time to buckle down and get some sketches created for those overdue pages I haven't seen since last November.

Have a GREAT week ALL!!
