Last year I sporadically participated in the Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge over at Splitcoast. This year I wanted to be more faithful in uploading each month. The challenge is pretty simple, choose a verse that you love and create a card or scrap a page using that verse and post on the 9th of each month. For more info, you can check out this thread BVC09 over at SCS. I've been making cards, but lately I've been scrapping again, so I decided to switch from card making to creating an 8x8 scrapbook for this challenge. I'll have to go back and do January and February. My idea is that I will find a verse that represents my so-called "theme" for that month. For January the theme is "new". For February it will be "love". For March I was thinking "In like a lion, out like a lamb". Which made me think of Psalm 23 which also talks about green pastures and since March is the "green" (St. Patrick's) month, I decided to roll with it! Here's my 8x8 page: I used the Inspiration Challenge from Saturday IC170. The website was called Spunky Sprout. Very fun and unique baby and children's stuff. A little pricey for my taste, but it's free to browse! I chose this piece as my inspiration:
I love the brown bunnies hiding in the grass. I also love the color combo of Celery, Saffron and Tangerine. I went to my stash of DSP scraps and had fun arranging lots of flowers. Spring is here in the Central Valley and I'm loving it!
All the DSP is SU! Some is retired. The little bunny stamp is from a new SU release that will be available April 1st in the Occasions Mini. The large white grommets will also be available in the mini catalog. I used lots of Big Shot dies as well. The "sun" is actually from the Baskets and Blooms die. It's supposed to be the bottom of the basket. I think it makes a fabulous sun! I also used the Cherry Blossom embosslit and the Birds and Blooms Sizzlets. The ribbon is from the Valet collection.
Have a great week!
