ABC Scripture Challenge -E-

Hi Stamping Friends!
I'm posting later than usual today.  I didn't have much time to work on my ABC Scripture Challenge page for Patter Cross' challenge on her blog, Triple the Scraps.  One thing that tripped me up was I didn't connect with the word she chose for the letter -E-, so I changed mine.  She chose the word "easy", but I chose the word "everything".  I finally started excersing again and while I was listening to my iPod, the words from a song (which are really words from a Psalm!) stuck in my brain... "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord".  The thought that everything... the sky, the trees, the air, the entire world belongs to God alone, found a place in my heart.  It was a beautiful reminder that "I am not my own, but I belong, body and soul, to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ."

To create this digital page, I used the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper and Brush Set for My Digital Studio.  Every Tuesday, Stampin' Up! offers new downloads for MDS.  It's so tempting to keep getting more MDS goodies.  But I've been trying to use all the yummy stuff I already have.  This page came together quickly since I used a fabulous sketch from the February 2011 sketches at PageMaps.

I hope you can stop back by tomorrow.  We have a new challenge over at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge and we want you to play along! 

On Friday I plan on starting something new here at my blog.  I'm calling it For Real Friday.  I read a blog recently (can't remember which one.  I read too much stuff!) where she did a kind of weekly photo journalistic list of "stuff".  Family stuff, life stuff, etc.  I plan on doing something similar, but I will also include some stamping "stuff".  We will see how it goes.  I never thought I would use this blog for "personal" things, but I think it's time to branch out.  And since I did name it Krystal's Cards and More.  I think it's time to get to the "more" part.  :)  As Lysa TerKeurst (one of my Jesus girl heroes!) chatted on her blog today, I realized it was time for me to add a little "and then some" to my world.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping and Digi Scrapping!

Love the birds! Perfect for this passage too!

Those are great images for that quote. Well done! And I agree -- I like Everything a lot better than Easy.

Girl, you never hide your light--or your talents--under a bushel.

God bless you, Krystal, for being such a blessing.

Gorgeous!! And I, too, love "everything", especially because it was so inspired. I love seeing your interpretations of each letter. Thanks for posting these inspirations! Looking forward to the "and more"!
