LOC Faith Art Friday - Original Design

I have chosen to do a layout for Faith Art Friday at Layers of Color,  When I create something for this post, I like to think about things as I create!  Today I have used the photo of my youngest daughter as a baby and started thinking about how unique our children are.  We have three, a son and two daughters.  Each one is so different from the other, but have traits that are unique to our family!

Throughout the whole layout this scripture was running through my mind:

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people;

that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you

 out of darkness into his marvelous light: 1 Peter 2:9

Each one of us is made in His image but are unique, each one of us has special gifts and talents that are special to us...how amazing is that - God surely is amazing - that my souls knows very well!
I have used Layers of Color Clear Art Stamps, the butterflies are from the Butterfly Collector Set and the flowers centres are from Flowering Gems.  Art Stencils have also been used to create this layout - Belle Brocade and Natural Flourish

This is for the following Challanges:
Simon Says Stamp - Pearls and Lace
