Scrapping Everyday Miracles September Main Challenge

It's reveal day at Scrapping Everyday Miracles. Helen has come up with a wonderful challenge for us this month: 

"To Everything There Is A Season" (Ecclesiastes 3)

Hi! Helen here bringing you the Main Challenge this month. 

In my home country, Indonesia, we only have 2 seasons: rainy and dry. Since I moved to Ohio back in 2008, I love seeing leaves changing their color every time the season changes. It amazes me that each leaf has its own way to change color in every season. And in our lives, we experience change all the time...and in every change that happens, God shows His mercy and miracles happen too!

My challenge for you this month is to create a layout about your favorite season of the year. Let your project show us God's miracles and His mighty work as you highlight this season.

The Scrap Twist that you need to include on your project is to use 3 or more leaves --- to remember how God changes the color of the leaves with the seasons.

Let's praise God, testify His glory and have fun as we create our layout. You can add some journaling to express your feeling also (optional).

Now, back to me, Tracey. Here is my example for you:

"Summer Sunset"

I posted this a couple days ago for my Really Reasonable Ribbon post, so if you did not see it then, you can go here to see all the details and close-ups.

God's amazing power is so evident in the beautiful ocean. My favorite time of the day to walk the beach is at sunset. This summer photo is extra special to me since it was taken on a trip that Gary and took last summer to celebrate our 30th anniversary. For the twist, I have included leaves in several forms. The two chipboard pieces both have leaves, and I die cut fern leaves that kind of look like coral to tuck in amongst my flowers. 

Be sure to head on over to the SEM blog to see all the inspiration by our talented design team. 

Now it's your turn to create a layout using this lovely theme and twist. Go here to link up your project to be eligible to win this month's prize from Express the Moment. I'll be updating with more prize information when it is available. 

**NOTE: You may submit the project you create for Scrapping Everyday Miracles to other challenge blogs but your project must be "mainly" created for the Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge in order to win the sponsor prize and/or be one of Top 3**

All entries must be linked HERE by September 30, 11:55pm PST.

Winners will be announced on Monday, October 7th, here at Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog.

*Important: Make sure your link is to the blog post with your project & not just your blog in general...and be sure to remember the SCRAP TWIST!
