Liefde is ... (Love is ...)

I like to display my layouts on my walls and I am very lucky that my husband and children are very encouraging doing so too. So ... I bought a couple of photo frames that will fit my 12" x 12" layouts and a few that will fit my 11" x 8.5" layouts too. Once in a while I change the layouts to have something new to look at. The only 'bad' thing about putting layouts into the frames is that I have to keep the layouts really 'flat' without using foam tape or dots, flowers, chipboard etc.

Now ... that is a challenge for me! But ... luckily manufacturers like Basic Grey have created beautiful coordinating stickers that still give me the opportunity to embellish my pages whilst keeping the layout flat. On the picture below you see our family room (12 year old girl laying on the couch, whilst playing on the PS3 included). Around our TV we put the frames I was talking about. It is hard to see, but I put the layout I made today in the middle frame on the right (just take my word on it, okay ... LOL).

Now back to the sketch and layout. I created a sketch for Scrap 'N' Craft with room for a large photo. Especially since I knew I wanted to hang it on our wall I wanted to be able to see the picture from any of the couches in our room. A 6" x 4" picture just wouldn't do the job. Therefore I created a sketch with a large square 8" x 8" picture. This is the sketch I made:

A larger version of this sketch can be downloaded HERE. I'd love for you to have a go at this sketch! If you have created a layout using this sketch, please email a picture to me, so I can add it to the slideshow on my sketches blog!
The journaling of this layout reads:

'Love is … Getting rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. - Ephesians 4: 31 – 32 (NIV)'
If you really want to know what the journaling reads in Dutch, this is what it says:

'Liefde is ... alle wrok, woede en haat uit je leven wegdoen. Niet vloeken, geen ruzie maken en elkaaar niet beledigen; vermijd alles wat slecht is. Wees in plaats daarvan vriendelijk en liefdevol voor elkaar. Vergeef elkaar, zoals God uw zonden heeft vergeven om wat Christus voor u deed. -Efeziƫrs 4: 31 - 32 (Het Boek)'
