His Holy Name '09 Creator

I completed another 12x12 scrapbook page for Patter's His Holy Name Challenge HHN09. The study this time was God our Creator. Oh wow! Did I enjoy this study. What a wonderful time of year to consider our Creator. Springtime is in full bloom here in the Central Valley. The orchards are blooming in bright magenta, pink and white. Absolutely gorgeous! When I think of God the Creator, I also think of God the Artist. For that truly is what He is, a master artist who has created amazing beauty! He gave us so many gorgeous colors, textures, and shapes.
I've admired other scrapbook pages that have this sort of "scene" on them and I was super excited when Patter posted the attribute of God the Creator. I just knew what I wanted my page to look like! It took me quite a bit of thought and time to pull it all together, since it is so outside the box for me! I used a TON of DSP scraps. ALL of them are from Stampin' Up!. It was a lot of fun "playing" with paper. I kept finding more and more green patterns. It was also great to get so much use out of my Big Shot. Love that machine! And I just got my SU! Beautiful Butterflies die yesterday, so I just had to use it!

The verse is Isaiah 40:28 "Do you know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, The Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom." What an awesome God we serve!

Here's a close-up of the tree:

After creating this page, I have a sense of how much God must have enjoyed creating this world. Beacuse I had an absolutley wonderful time making this page! I can also understand how "God saw that it was good", 'cause for me, this is pretty good! :)

Thanks for looking!

Happy Stamping!
