His Holy Name '09 Righteous

On Sunday, Patter gave us this week's attribute of God for the His Holy Name Challenge HHN09 . The new attribute is Righteous. Patter puts so much thought and work into each study. I really appreciate reading what she has to say. I used BibleGateway to look up scripture verses that contained the word righteous. Many of them had to do with man being righteous, but I was concentrating on God's righteousness towards man. After all, we are only righteous through his forgiveness and mercy. And that forgiveness is so freely given because of his son dying on the cross for our sinfulness.

Again, it was difficult choosing just one verse. Every week I'm amazed at how many beautiful truths are written for us in the Bible. I just love the Psalms. There are so poetic and lovely. So many great images are used. I had three different Psalms that I really liked, but finally chose Psalm 36:5-6. I love the song (I think it's by Third Day) of this passage: "Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O Lord, you preserve both man and beast." Isn't that fabulous! God is so mighty!
I found the layout for this 12x12 scrapbook page on another sketch blog (how many are there?!) called Page Plans. Here's the sketch:

I usually don't do "one photo" layouts in scrapbooks, but this challenge is totally different. I can through caution to the wind and waste a whole 12x12 piece of paper for only "one photo". And in this case, no photo! Here's my page based on this layout:
I used my latest favorite DSP Parisian Breeze. It's the best DSP that SU! has come out with. It's thick and textured and fabulous! And I love all the patterns, stripes, polka dots, damask. There's not an ugly piece in the whole pack!
This is page is mostly SU! The only thing that isn't is the "fluer de lis" chipboard. It's from Colorbok. And the title is cut with my Cricut. Everything else is Stampin' Up! The flowers were cut with my Big Shot using the SU! Birds and Blooms Sizzlets. The pearls are from the SU! Pretties Kit. I distressed all the edges of the DSP with Chocolate Chip ink and a sponge. I printed the verses on my computer and then used the new SU! set Friends 24-7 to stamp over top the words. I used Creamy Caramel ink and stamped off once before stamping on my verse. The Chocolate Chip Wide Satin Ribbon is from SU!, but it's retired. I don't know why it's retired,because it is so fabulous! They really need to carry this in the big catty.
The colors are Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel and Whisper White.
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping! (and scrapping!)
