Scripture Challenge and George Clooney....

I am a little behind on my Scripture ATC's so after we got back yesterday, I played catch up!

My ATC holder is looking so pretty so I will take a picture of what it looks like so far and post it at some time in the future! I am so happy with it.

Today's word is Grace and my Scripture is one that goes straight to my heart. Honestly, without getting too gushy, I have received so many blessings in my life, from my wonderful husband to my three fabulous children who make me proud every day!

I have been blessed with a renewed life full of great health from the liver transplant I received October 25, 1995.

In the last 14 years, I have actually tried not to think of the family that had to make that difficult yet so completely unselfish decision to donate their loved one's organs.

It is only lately that I have begun to think about it, whether I wasn't emotionally ready or just refused to think about it, I don't know.

But to tell you the truth, a couple of weeks ago, the show ER was on and George Clooney was back as a guest star ( by the way I love George Clooney) and he was a transplant I sat glued to the television through the whole thing and bawled like a little baby.....just actually remembering all that had transpired.....all right enough.....

Supplies: Basic Grey Marrakesh, Maya Road Sheer scallop cards, Martha Stewart tags, Stamping UP scallop edge punch, Hero Arts gems, velvet ribbon scrap, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist copper

My next Scripture word is Listen and I used the Spellbinders Crosses die to cut the cross out and then left it on and sponged it with Papertrey Ink Aquamist ink to make the little decorations.

The rubons are Jenni Bowlin kindergarten Alpha. I used my Sakura gelly roll pen to trace around the word "listen"
and some gorgeous Champagne pearls from Ellen Hutson for a bit of decoration.


  1. Gorgeous ATC's. HUGS!!!

  2. What a beautiful post & stunning scripture ATCs. We're so lucky to have you well & wonderful! OXO mel

  3. Your ATCs are gorgeous; I really love the "listen" one. And George Clooney...well...yep, he's gorgeous too!

  4. Wow, Bonnie. You're one fortunate lady. I can't imagine how scary all of that was for you. I'm so glad you're here too. (I LOVE your sense of humor.)

    Your ATC's are gorgeous! I especially like the "Listen" one.

  5. Wow Bonnie, you truly have been blessed! I am so glad that we have had the time to get to know each other and become friends! That was a wonderful gift to receive!

    Now your ATC's are lovely and I can't wait to see the holder completed. How beautiful it will be filled with all of these lovely scriptures!

  6. wow! Both of these are amazing!!! I am blown away by the beautiful colors and papers you used! They are so perfect for each word!! I had no idea you had a had a transplant. What a wonderful gift that was given.


  7. Bonnie,

    Oh My girl these are so beautiful and I loved the story you told along with them!!!

    I am an RN, and though our Hostpital here is not big enough to do transplants I have been in on many organ and tissue harvestings where they took the organs and tissues that were being donated to go somewhere else!!!!

    That is always such a hard thing to do, and I think it is awesome that you are an organ reciever!!!!

    I am glad you got that liver Bonnie!!!!

    I missed that episode of ER did not know about it until after it was over!!!

    I really want to see it!!!!
