Greetings Laura,

Thank you for visiting my blog yesterday!  For 10 years we attended a church that provided a fill-in-the-blank type sermon note taker that I didn't realize I missed until we moved and started going to a new church that only gave a Sunday bulletin.  I missed taking those " notes" and decided to come up with my own thing. After a few months of bringing different tablets to try to take notes on, I decided to bring a Composition Notebook ( 50 cents ) and it worked great as I could easily grab it week to week and I could find my notes to have devotion on easier in this one place. But.... that marbled black and white cover was needing a little something so I cut out pictures from my tea magazines and pasted them on collage style and brushed a sparkle sealing glue on it. Voil√† - it became my church notes / journal. Now 2 years later I am still creating them when they get full, then I create a new one. 

The one I just finished using was titled sugar sprinkles from heaven with a picture of high tea at the Ritz Carlton ( gorgeous ) and a saying that said scones are like manna from heaven.  I had seen a similar idea from another blog and adapted the idea for materials I had from my craft supplies. 

This time I wanted a more old fashioned look and because I lurve tea, searched for a picture of a fire side tea and found that puzzle. I print out the picture on my color printer and decorate the background using colors from the picture. 

It's a great conversation piece and ice breaker when I meet new people who ask what that book is with my bible. 

I'm looking forward to visiting your blog!  Have a great day!!
