Scripture Lessons and Lyrics - Lesson #2 - UNDO

Hello again, my friends!

I've had this page finished for quite a while already. 
Since my blog has been so busy with scheduled DT posts, 
I thought I would wait until there was a lull! 
Thank you all very much for your faithful visits and sweet comments!

I must say I am REALLY enjoying my new Scripture challenge format! 
These pocket pages are so much fun to fill! 
Again, I am using a past Simon Says Stamp kit for this page. 
I thought the choice of red and white papers, 
and the heart brads, were very appropriate for this month. 
They were just right for the song lyrics and the Scripture verse 
in a number of significant ways too!

The song that Patter chose this time is another contemporary Christian song. 
It is "Undo" by Rush of Fools. 
Although I had heard the song before, it's not one that I am very familiar with. 

Here is my complete page. 
Since it is on the back side of the last page, it's the same format...reversed. 

Now I'll break it down for you. 
This is my song title page. 
I layered the letters on top of a doily on top of the decorative paper. 
I then cut an "undo" icon out with my Cricut. 
I added some simple stitching and some buttons, and this one was finished.

This pocket contains a quote from the song.
Just some simple layering and a few rhinestones.
This is my prayer so very often!
No matter how hard I try, I just can't get it all right. 
 I certainly can't do it on my own...ever!
Yet every single time I ask, God freely takes me back to His forgiveness and grace!

That leaves the long skinny pocket for my Scripture verse.
I opted to write it out on white cardstock and cut it out in strips.
 I added a leftover bit of doily, and then did some more stitching.
Finally, I added a couple of heart brads.

I love this Scripture verse!
Yes, the Lord is my strength! My heart leaps for JOY!
I will give thanks to Him in song!
Don't worry...I'm not going to sing for all of you...I'll add the video at the end of the post! lol

Every time I see one of your pages I want to do this, but so far I've been too sorry to get it done. The Valentine theme is wonderful. You go girl!
