Happy Monday to you all, my friends!
I hope you've enjoyed a wonderful weekend and are excited to see what this week brings!
I've had this page finished for a while but forgot to post it. The song for Challenge #3 is another contemporary one entitled "Always". It's a song full of encouragement! We all have to face difficult struggles in our lives...with health, relationships, job situations...so many things! However, God will ALWAYS be there for us. He is a constant refuge and source of strength throughout the chaos of life! What a joyous comfort that is for each of us! :o)
I have used a new pocket format for today's page...this one has two pockets. As in all my pages for this challenge, I am using supplies from my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. The "Always" stamp was from a previous SSS kit. If you look closely at the background, you can see that I stamped flowers and leaves all over the gingham paper. I used a soft green ink so it wouldn't interfere with my writing. I wrote out the second verse and the chorus.
Please read the beautiful lyrics:
The second pocket holds the Scripture verse that I chose for this challenge. The background is one of the coordinating papers from the kit. I wrote the verse, die-cut it and layered it on another cut. Using the paper from the previous pocket, I stamped and punched some flowers. A bit of ribbon and some pearls and it was finished.
Oh, but then I saw that this great cut-apart was also in the kit. It was the perfect final addition, and I simply added it with my tiny attacher.
Always remember this..."The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble!"
