Journey to Bethlehem Layout

I was trying to decide what pictures to scrap next, and I got inspired by several challenges:
1. Lasting Memories had a sketch and a challenge to scrapbook a favorite destination  - this was our first but certainly won't be our last visit to the fun and thought provoking Journey to Bethlehem event.
2. 4 Crafty Chicks wanted us to be inspired by a book - I was inspired by the Bible (Matthew 2:2) to add the stars in place of the circles of the original sketch.
3. Little Red Wagon asked to see spots or dots - this gave me the idea to chose a dotted background paper that looks like constellations.
4. Creating with Paper and More had a word challenge - I used the words "life" and "birth" in my journaling.
Thanks for all the inspiration, ladies!

Universal Backgrounds stamp set
Timberline & Florentine Level 2 papers
