ABC Scripture Challenge -C-


Hi Stamping and Scrapping Friends!!
This 8x8 digital scrapbook page was created for the ABC Scripture Challenge hosted by Patter Cross.  The letter "C" is for Confindence.  Not "self" confidence, but "God" confidence.  Patter asks these questions," Do you rely on 'self' or do you rely on God?  Do you think you can go through each day on your own without ever needing to rely on God?"  She then goes on to say, "Ask God to help you recognize those times when you are self-confident and ask Him to replace it with His confidence instead.  Then watch and be in awe of what He does!".  What a wonderful reminder to daily put our confidence in what God can do through us!

Again, I used BibleGateway to search for verses.  Love this site!!  What an amazing tool to have at your fingertips.  No more flipping back and forth through a Concordance.  And you can look at so many Bible versions.  So cool!  The two verses I chose were my favorites from the beginning of my search, so that part was easy.  The difficult part was deciding on what look to have for this page.  I started with a sketch from PageMaps.  Oh what did I ever do before PageMaps?!!  Love, LOve, LOVE this site too!!  So much inspiration.  Next, I went through the recent downloads I purchased for My Digital Studio.  Two of my favorite "new-to-me" downloads are Love Letter DSP and Artistic Etchings stamps.  So that is how I began creating this page and the rest just sort of fell into place.

Some of you have asked what I plan to do with these pages.  When the challenge is over, I do plan on printing them into a book.  I think it's fun to feature just one DSP kit and/or stamp set on each page.  It will be a great way to showcase all the downloads available for My Digital Studio.  My "A" page used the Travel Kit.  The "B" page used the Sweet Pea kit.  And this page uses the Love Letters DSP and Artisitc Etchings stamps.  With all the new downloads Stampin' Up! keeps offering, there will be plenty of them to feature for 26 pages!!  Stampin' Up! just came out with more new downloads on Tuesday.  You can now download the My Digital Studio Catalog in PDF format.  CLICK HERE

Yesterday I said I was going to share some fun news with you. Well, the pages I have been creating for the ABC Scripture Challenge were chosen by Shelli Gardner, the cofounder and CEO of Stampin' Up!, as a winner for her New Year Creative Challenge!!  Isn't that so exciting!!!!  Check out the link to the post on her blog, So Shelli.  Let me tell you, I was doin' the happy dance when I received the email telling me I my projects had won!  I am so thrilled and honored that she (the real Shelli Gardner!!) chose my MDS digi creations.  I've only just started playing around with the program and still consider myself a newbie to digi scrapping.  The best part about winning, is that I got to pick out one stamp set of my choice, from the current catalog.  I knew exactly what I wanted, Fabulous Phrases.  I can't wait until it comes!!  I've been wanting it forever!

That's enough chatter from me for one day.  I hope you visit again tomorrow.  It's Stampin' Celebration time and we have another fabulous inspiration challenge for you.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping and Scrapping and Digi Creating!

You scripture pages are so awesome, Krystal. It's going to be hard to find enough adjectives for all 26 letters of the alphabet.
