my little darling


Saturday the day for the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS...I love looking at the various catalogs for my  muse!  This week is was the opposite, I'd been working on my His Holy Names challenge which was the word CREATOR.  I needed to find something in the Fritz & Floyd caddie that would tie my 6x6 page to the IC.  Well, these beautiful vases and the grill were just the perfect objects!

In thinking about the word creator, I was drawn to my favorite Psalm, 139 which talks about the LORD fashioning each one of us in our mother's womb, that every day of my life was written before they came to be, that HIS CREATION is wonderful.  I knew I wanted to use the double helix of DNA to represent both the complexity and the transparency of my life.  And I thought a picture of my loving parents before I was conceived would be a beginning point as is the postmark of my birth date.  Even as I study His Holy Names, it is about my faith journey, also.  I used Tim Holtz's ticket along with a dynamo label MY story.  The key is also from Tim Holtz idea-0logy...this one says Secret...I was made in the secret place.  I used some of a gorgeous Japanese pleated ribbon on the scripture page.  The word CREATOR is stamped on a piece of acetate with olive green Stazon.  Other details of the actual construction can be found in my SCS gallery.  I've left room for journaling behind the Psalm.

I am overwhelmed with the love the LORD has shown HIS people...it is so vast.  And I am thankful for all the gifts HE has given me.  Happy Weekend, my friends
