Friday Finds (on a Thursday): Degree Motionsnese

Thanks to Influenster, I received this product free in exchange for my review. 

Where was this when I was a teenager and only wore black t-shirts due to my embarrassing over active armpit sweat?!? 

So far I am really impressed with this product- I'll break down my pros and cons below. 

Yesterday, I walked a mile before going into work and and felt fresh and not smelly afterward. Very cool! :) 

Pros: awesome moisture control, actually works to control perspiration with increased activity. 

Cons: invisible solid...covered my shirt with white marks this morning, the scent is not my favorite. 

Final review: I would buy. I think I'll give my free sample to my mother and go buy the Powder scent for myself.

Layout: They Love to Dig

This challenge was issued by my friend Loni. It was a recipe challenge- and boy was it a challenge! 
Non-white cardstock background
Photo strip with 4 photos
Wood veneers (up to 14) 
27 punched shapes or die cuts 
5 word title (I failed that one!) 
And journaling on a journaling card

To create the photo strip I used a collage app to create four 2x2 photos and printed the images as one picture using my Selphy and then added them to a piece of paper- Ta Da!

Throwback Thursday: #Bolivia

Our car was in an accident- Ryan was hit by another drive and he is fine, but the car was a total loss. While cleaning out the trunk of the car I found an 8x10 collage print from my trip to Bolivia. Because some of the photos featured my classmates and fellow trip takers, I didn't feel comfortable scrapping the entire print so I cut out certain photos and created a layout with a pocket to store the additional photos. Here is the result: 

Something I always try to do is stretch my supplies by using the extra mist on the stencil to create a second background. I love the way the print turned out and I may like it more than the original!

Worship Wednesday: Journaling bible

This past week we had to say goodbye to our interim rector at church. He has been with is for over two years, he baptized Millie and has been such an inspiration to myself and our church. His presence in our lives has been restorative and he and his wife will be missed. 
It is time to make room in our hearts for our new rector who will be joining us in October and I cannot wait to see where she will lead us. 

I am thinking about this being a regular series where I post my sermon notes or inspired journaling each Wednesday.
