After much thought, well, I thought about it for a good 5 minutes in the shower, I came up with a plan: a prayer book! After I toweled off and dried my hair I ran down to the DG (Dollar General) and snagged a simple 4x6 photo album for a buck.
It is cute and fun and would be easy to use for this project. After drinking 3 Diet Mountain Dews and seeing what was happening on Facebook I was ready to get to work. I whipped out my scrapbook stickers that picked up for $1 at Big Lots and adhered a few to the front spelling out Let Us Pray:
I decided on that because we say it during the Prayer of the Faithful at church each week. On the inside I added some of the prayers that we say each night, the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and a few others. Then, I added a few pictures of our family and friends. Since Christmas is just around the corner I plan to save photo Christmas cards we receive and add them to the book. I think it will be a great way to reuse cards we receive from our loved ones. Here is one of the pages in our book:
We will keep this in our daughter's room where we pray and add to it over time. This sweet project will set you back less than $2!
