Hymn and Scripture Challenge Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus

Patter gave us another very beautiful hymn this time. It is so interesting to know about the history behind the hymns , it really makes you appreciate them even more. I liked the way the New Living translation expressed the verse from Phillipians 4:7.I am still trying to adapt to the 6x6 format I decided to use but I think I will get used to the smaller space! I have been really blessed by this hymn,in many different versions, traditional and contemporary.
My page hasn't photographed very well, the colours are a little "off " but I do really like this verse!

Hymn and Scripture Challenge 2012

Happy New year ! A new challenge to begin the year and bless us throughout!
I so enjoyed the ABC Scripture Challenge last year and was so pleased that Patter was going to continue this year. Please visit her lovely blog at for all the details.
The first hymn is one we all know Amazing Grace. The story behind this hymn and the words are so wonderful! It is difficult to choose just one scripture when there are so many to choose from. I had decided to do 6 x 6 pages as a change to last years 8 x 8,but I am already wondering if I should have allowed myself more space and used a larger format! I would like to display my pages on a stand similar to the one Patter has used in a previous challenge though.

                                                         Coredenations and Papermania papers
                                                          Papermania paper rosebuds
                                                          Cuttlebug corner die
                                                          Sizzix framelits banner dies

Thank you for visiting and I would encourage anyone to join in this year. There are already lots of beautiful pages uploaded so we will have so much spiritual and crafty inspiration this year!

ABC Scripture Challenge ZEAL and VALUE

Slightly out of order but two more pages for last years challenge [ 2 more to go to finish!]
It is so easy to get behind for various reasons ,so after this post I am going straight into this years challenge and will catch up later.

I used gold elements to convey the word value and my friend the Sizzix bird to tie in with the verse from Matthew. I am sure we all agree that the word of God is of the most value in our lives.

For me , this verse really sums up the word zeal!
I tried to make a bold coloured page , using some Papermania dimensional stickers and papers.

Thanks for visiting today and see you soon for the new challenge!
