Give me Some {Jillibean Soup}!

I LOVE Jillibean Soup! I am a guest designer for them for this month (July). You will see my work on their blog on July 14th! :) I will of course share here too! And my dear friend Chelsea challenged me this weekend to scrap just for ME!!! No design team work, no challenges--just for ME! So I did! And of course, I had to use some Jillibean Soup because when I worked with their products for my guest design work, it wasn't work! It was pure joy! Don't get me wrong, I love doing design work. It's a passion of mine but I don't get the time very often to just do whatever I want without restrictions.

Anyway, I took a trip to Bible Study Fellowship Headquarters in May. We have over 1,000 classes worldwide. Headquarters is just 2 hours from me, and can you believe I have NEVER been. Now that's dreadful! I have ALWAYS wanted to go! So, I went! It was true joy to go on that trip, and of course, I took many pictures. So, I am creating an 8x8 album of my trip to BSF Headquarters and about my journey in BSF. This page I did is about of one of the rooms at headquarters. It is amazing! Papers: Jillibean Soup Spicy Pumpkin, Making Memories spiral journaling paper
Stamp ink: Colorbox Pigment Ink chestnut
Alphas: Jillibean Soup bean brown alpha beans, Heidi Swapp Lemonade Ledger chipboard alpha
Embellishments: Creative Imaginations velvet brad and felt flower trim, Jillibean Soup bean seeds (felt flowers & leaves), misc. button, hemp from Hobby Lobby

The journaling reads:
"I could have sat in this room for hours. This room at BSF HQ is where the staff prays & sings hymns each morning before beginning their day. See the red leader's hymnals on each chair? And the walls of books--oh my! They all came from Miss Johnson's personal library. I can't begin to describe how this room touched me."

Miss Johnson founded BSF in 1952, and she passed away on December 22, 1984. Being in this room where the staff prays for the ministry and all of the classes around the world plus being surrounded by Miss Johnson's personally library was truly touching and amazing! I can't wait to complete my album because it will be something very near and dear to my heart! Thanks for looking and stopping by today. Have a blessed day!

Beautiful page and sounds like a beautiful trip! I'm glad you typed out what the journaling said and mentioned the hymnals on each chair because I didn't notice that about the photograph. Thanks for sharing!
