My Mark

Hey everyone!

I always get so excited when a new challenge is posted at All About Me.  Our very own Britt came up with the current one which is "My Mark".  Originally, I searched for something on my body to share but everything just didn't seem exciting to do a layout about.  I could have scrapped about the scar on the top of my left foot from when I tripped and got a really bad scab at the age of 4.  I could have scrapped about the scar right above my lip from the time I got bit by a dog.  I could have scrapped about the wee mark on the palm of my right hand from when I got stabbed by a pencil.  (Don't worry... I don't have lead poisoning.)  I could have scrapped about my freckles, my bruises, my toenails that have nail polish chipping off, my wrinkles, my hair, the pen mark on my wrist... so many things!  But I kept coming back to the book of Mark in the Bible.  It would not go away!  So last night (yep, I finished my layout last night...hehe..) I opened up Mark and found the piece of scripture where Jesus is talking about children.  Mark 10:14 & 15 literally jumped out at me and I knew right away I had to scrap that!


I work with children and am always reminded what it means to be "child like".  Children are so ready and willing to have faith in the adults place in their life.  They are innocent and freely reach up when they need to be held, saved, cuddled... They don't question their authority and are so curious and eager to learn.  To have "faith like a child" becomes so much more meaningful to me when I think of those things!  And at my job, as a I help mold these young children to become who God has created them to be, I am leaving my "mark" on this world!

This layout is a result from Iris Babao-Uy's Class for a Cause.  It's an awesome class and I had so much fun making this layout.  The only place paper was used was as a base.  Otherwise, I used fabric and burlap with all the other elements.  I stamped and embossed on acrylic and then cut around the shapes to make some cool embellishments.

Thanks for swinging by!  Make sure you come back tomorrow when I share my final projects for scrapsketch! *sniffle*
