ABC Scripture Challenge -A-

-A- IS FOR ANCHOR

Hi Stamping and Scrapping Friends!!
A few years back I found a challenge that combined two of my favorite things, the Bible and scrapbooking!  I was so excited when I recently ran across Patter Cross's blog, Triple the Scraps, and found out that this year she is doing another Bible/scrap challenge called the ABC Scripture challenge.  Of course since I am loving My Digital Studio so much, I decided to take up the challenge digi style!!  This page is 8x8.  I'm hoping to turn these into an album to showcase My Digital Studio.  I used alot of elements from the Travel Journal Digital Kit.

In her lesson on ANCHOR, Patter says, "If we are not anchored to God, we drift.  We waiver in our realtionship with Him, and then we feel like we will drown in the storms of life.  God not only knows what is going on in your life, He has the power to help you deal with it."  That is so reassuring to me!!  I need to remember everyday to keep myself anchored to the One who can keep me secure during those storms in my life.

What I love about Patter's scripture challenges is there are no photos required!  I had never scrapped without photos before.  The first time I tried it, I felt a new sense of creative freedom.  I could create anything I wanted!!!  No birthday parties or Christmas pages or pictures of the first day of school.  It was really thrilling.  I'm not sure why I stopped participating in that challenge.  I'm sure life just got in the way.  I should go back and finish the 2009 study, which was called His Holy Name.  Just last week (after the computer virus incident) I deleted all my old card photos.  They are saved on an external hard drive, but I was trying to free up space on my desktop.  So the only copies I could find of the scrap pages I did back in 2009 was in my gallery at Splitcoast Stampers.  The photo quality is horrible, but I thought it would be fun to show them to you. 


 


 

My favorite page of these is the Creator one.  It just makes me smile.  :)

If you have any questions about how My Digital Studio works, email me.  I'd be happy to "chat" with you!

I hope you can stop back by tomorrow.  It will be time for another inspiration challenge over at the Stampin' Celebration Challenge.  You won't want to miss what we are celebrating next!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Your "anchor" page is fantastic. I have to say that I, too, love the "Creator" page but they are all amazing.
