Thank you for stopping by my blog. Lately I have been reviewing books and haven't had as much time to scrap. Hopefully soon I'll get back to scrapping and creating some new files. Thank you for your patience.

I have made files available at absolutely no charge. I do this for fun. I am learning the wonderful Make The Cut (MTC) program and trying to improve my skills. Most of the files have been created from free coloring sheets online. You will need MTC software in order to cut these files. Please use these files for your personal use only and if you want to share them with others please direct others to my blog. I hope you enjoy these files. Comments are always appreciated. If you are not a follower please consider doing so. I have lots of new files that I want to add over the next few months.

Thomas Nelson KJV Study Bible

 Thomas Nelson King James Study Bible: Full Color Edition is absolutely gorgeous!!!!! I have the large Print version which is much easier to read. There are full color illustrations throughout the entire bible. I believe this is my new favorite bible in my collection
It is a little larger than most bibles because of the larger print and the many illustrations included. The Thomas Nelson study bibles are among my favorite study bibles. They are extremely easy to follow and use and this one is no exception. This one is bound to lay flat when open. I love this feature, no worries of the pages flipping or closing. Christ’s words are in red.
I just can’t say enough about this bible. It is one of the most complete study bibles I have come across. It has several index sections in the back including an index to Christ and the gospels, and index to Paul’s letters, there is a concordance. There is just so much meat to this bible.
If you are looking for a wonderful study bible I HIGHLY RECOMMEND  this one!!!!

Colored pencil Painting Portraits

A beautiful art instruction book, Colored Pencil Painting Portraits by Alyona Nickelsen is for those who want to learn to use colored pencils as their media. The book is full of information and probably geared toward a more experienced artist. I’m not sure it would be for a beginner in the art world. It would be a beautiful addition to a collection for instruction.
The book begins by explaining different media to use with colored pencils and also gives comparisons of various pencils. It does seem to lean toward Prismacolor Premier pencils, which at this time are my personal favorite. It then goes into blending and mixing colors. You will need a working knowledge of drawing in order to gain from this book unless maybe you just want to up your skill level in the all popular adult coloring book world. It gives step by step examples on achieving specific effects.
The book is full of beautiful works by different artists. It is so hard to tell pencil from actual photography in some examples. The pages are printed on a very nice quality paper . The cover damages very easily though. Mine already has the coating peeling off and I am very careful with books.  Overall, this is a beautifully done book and it will remain in my collection. I would recommend this for an intermediate or advanced artist. But a beginner could very well benefit from it also but it wouldn’t be my go to book for a beginner.

NIV Beautiful Word large print bible

The NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible with large print is wonderful. It is a journaling and coloring bible combined. The slightly larger print is easy to read especially for aging eyes like mine. There are hundreds of pages that have line are and coloring pictures. The paper is slightly thicker than a regular bible to make it easier to color with less bleed through. There is plenty of room for your own personal journaling to use your own creativity. 
I have the cloth covered hard back version. It is gorgeous but it is very heavy to carry. The font is 10 point so I’m not sure I would consider it large print but it is larger than most normal bibles. There are no reference notes or study notes built in. It is a very basic bible other than the addition of coloring and journaling pages. The pages are still pretty thin so I would think the best media for this bible is going to be pencil and I’m pretty sure if you have a heavy hand you will be able to see through to the next page. ‘
If you like coloring bible this one is a nice one. There are a few full pages to color but the majority of it is margin sized coloring and mostly text art.  I wouldn’t say this is my favorite coloring bible that I have but it is a very nice addition to my collection and would make a nice gift.
