And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Fresh Brewed August Hop

It's the first Wednesday of the month, and you know what that means for Fresh Brewed Designs ... another blog hop and image release. The HOP starts with Rhonda, so be sure to go there first! If you are hopping and got here from Grace's blog, then you are good to go!

This hop will not be your ordinary hop... it is full of secrets and smiles, wonder and amazement. Magical things happen when you get a group of ladies together. What kind of magic you ask? The only magic worth seeking, wanting, cherishing... the kind of magic you find in true friendship. Today we have a little bit of magical enchantment to share with you in these newest Fresh Brewed Designs images. Each tells a little story, a little mystery, a little fun, and adds just a little bit of fantasy to each creation you will see during this hop.
As children we remember those Fairy Tales about mermaids and magical worlds where fairies live. We would lay in the grass and wonder if the patch of wildflowers was full of life, if mermaids swam in the sea beneath us. It is always fun to imagine and dream.
"Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again
CS Lewis

I created this cute little purse using the Haute Tote Template found at Creations by AR. Adlea has an AMAZING assortment of WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, and AFFORDABLE templates. I have always loved and admired her talent ... one of the very first friends I made here in the blog world and I will always love and cherish her. Check out her lovely things HERE. You will be glad you did!!!

I used all scrap and RAKed paper for this project, some flowers from Oriental Trading Company, and brads lost in my stash o' mess :)

((CUTENESS ALERT! While on Graces blog I noticed she had done this fun little 'what is your fairy name' thingy :D and I wanted to play along too .... granted I ended up using my middle and maiden name... otherwise I would have been black and white with green wings like a badger, lol!!! But now I am a Goblintree... hmmm. what is worse? Mine is on my sidebar under the Freshly Brewed Challenges " Grab a Badge"
Thanks for the fun addition to the hop Grace!!! :) ))
