And finally

the Salt layout is done :) It is amazing how something so simple can take a while!
The challenge this week is
SELF CONTROL.
I love Ruth's comment
"This is serious, as one of the fruits of the spirit - the outworking of LOVE - is SELF CONTROL."

and it was a no brainer for me as to what I should portray. Me, getting angry over nothing; me reading Perez Hilton instead of the Bible; me, stuffing my face with chocolate. There could have been a lot more photos really...

the photos have been photoshopped to give a "palette knife " effect. Just on a whim really! I stuffed 3 Quality Street in my mouth at the same time and it was rather sickly and horrible. The things I do for art...

Down to the details:
Black Bazzill cardstock
Turquoise Papermania scalloped cardstock
Patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Get Happy pad (its new! its lush! expect to see a lot more of it!)
the words "anger" etc put through a Round the Block dymo maker
Papermania ribbon and spotty brads.
the other brads are Making Memories metallic red but look black
Ribbon brad - no idea where from as I have had these for ages and never used them.
Papermania letter stickers
Journalling done using Times and Times again font.
I wanted to write something personal but not take up anymore space on the layout so wrote inside the boxes. The close up is rather blurry but here you are.
The writing in red reads: "Oh how much do I agree with these words of Paul. its the gift of the Spirit I really struggle with. Lord help me!"

Now here is some important news. We are looking for more people to join the Salt design team. If you are interested please read the details on the Salt blog.

How I accord with this one - the comments could well have been written by me - good choice of verse to highlight your thoughts. The LO, as usual, is superb - love the Cosmo Cricket paper. The colour combo of this LO work so well. Congrats on joining Funky Hand - way to go!!! xx

This is a wonderful layout. I know I shouldn't but I love your 'Anger' photo.. I'm afraid I lose my temper over nothing far too often as well..I claim it's down to my medication..but it's not! It's definitely lack of self control. Ummm something to work on.
