Scripture Challenge meets Color Throwdown Challenge

I decided that I would play along with the Scripture Challenge over at Triple the Scraps. Patter is giving a Challenge word and then we are to find Scriptures that fit the given word. Last year I started out doing her His Holy Name challenge but fell by the wayside part way through the year. This year I am determined to finish!!! This week was my first week at guest designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge and I have fallen in love with the color combo--due largely to the fact that I fell in love the digi papers that are being given away, compliments of My Time Made Easy to two lucky winners. Actually, I plan to follow the color theme that these papers have through out the year.

The first challenge word was HOPE. The verse I picked: Jer 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plane to give you hope and a future." What a great promise from our Lord!!
The above picture is of the front cover (I bought a Circle Chipboard album from Micaheals for only $1 to use as my project for the year--my Creative Memories circle cutter makes the perfect cut for this little album). I used the verse that Patter has on your blinkie for this challenge. The butterflies are cut out from one of the digi prints and the plaid is from the same set of digi papers. I stamped Stampin Up!'s background lace stamp over my verse and then sponged around the edges. The finish off my cover page I added a ribbon and some Choc. Chip pearls to my butterflies.
The above picture is my first page--the challenge word was HOPE. I used my sticky letters for the H and pink chunky glitter. The OPE are metal charms that were a birthday gift from a friend. I stamped several flourishes from Stampin Up!'s Stitched Exoctics stamp set. I have decided to hand write all my verses this year--not something I really like to do but since this is going to be for my daughter I thought it would be nice for her to have it in my writing.

Cute idea to use a round "page"! I like it, and your cover, too! I did the HHN challenge last year, made 6 x 6 pages and it took a lot of time! I wanted something simpler to accomplish this year. I think Patter had her 4 x 6's on some kind of a hanging frame she showed on her blog.
Great to find someone else doing the challenge, I'll be back to visit your blog! Mine is: http://windchimesandlilacs.blogspot.com
