July Sketch challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles

Happy Monday everyone!  Can you believe it is the middle of July already?!  It's Jessica here today and I have a couple of sketches for you.  The first sketch is a card sketch I put together and the second is a layout sketch by the very talented Shawn Lahr of Nuts About Sketches where I am blessed to also be a part of the design team.  I hope one or both of these sketches inspires you!

Our scrap twist this month is to use pop dot or foam adhesive to lift a flat embellishment.

Pure Painted Signs

Here's what Celisa has to share about her company:

My name is Celisa Schumpert and I am a wife, a mom and I have a love for all things creative.  My husband and I were blessed to spend over 20 years in youth ministry before helping begin a start up church about 3 years ago that has grown to about 1700 weekly attendance, it has been awesome watching God at work in our new adventure.  I am also a mom to three children 20, 16 and 8.  Around 7 years ago we were blessed to bring home our 8 year old from China and it doing so developed a heart for orphans and a desire to help them find forever families.  As a result, I wanted to start a business that could give to that purpose.  I am blessed to combine my two passions into my relatively new business, Pure Painted Signs.  I have always loved painting and with this endeavor I am able to give 10% to my church and 40% to orphan causes around the world, as well as supporting families who are seeking to adopt.
