So...the details for the challenge are really simple. You just pick a Bible verse that is special to you and put it on a card, bookmark, scrapbook page, trading card...pretty much whatever works for you. I used my computer to print these scriptures onto cardstock, because I didn't have stamps for these verses.The 5 of us will be posting our projects on the 8th of each month during 2008 (I know today's the 10th...but from now on, it will be the 8th). I've decided to simply make a card each month which will be displayed in a prominent spot, so I can see it, and memorize the scripture during the month. I'll share my method of displaying with you next month (I've ordered something that I think is going to be really cool...but it hasn't arrived quite yet). At the end of the month, the card will go into a special box. At the end of the year, I will have 12 cards completed. I'm not sure yet if I'll keep them or give them away as gifts....I'm still deciding. A couple of the ones that are extra special to me might even get framed and used as wall art! My daughter, Megan, asked if I would make her a bookmark each month, using a scripture she's chosen. She a grown up college kid who loves bright colors, flowers and I know she especially LOVES this SU Unfrogettable frog...so I used all her favorite things along with her scripture on this bookmark~
If you want to play along, just make your project and upload it to the SCS gallery using the keywords: BVC08. It will be really fun to look through the gallery and see everyone's projects!! AND leave me a comment, linking me to your project...I can't wait to see what you come up with!!! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . By the way, a great resource I use is biblegateway.com...to look up verses, reference different versions, find keywords...really great site!
One of my New Years resolutions was to make time each morning, before anything else, to read my bible & pray. Something I try to do on a daily basis, but when life gets busy, it somehow gets pushed a little further down the priority list. As I'm reading, I'll be choosing a scripture for each month that is extra special to me and that's the one I'll use on my BVC project. This month, I've chosen a verse from Psalms 119:34-37...it's one of my favorites and it is truly the prayer of my heart. I also wanted to mention that the layout for my card was from Jen's (iheart2stamp) sketch challenge. Great layout...love it, thanks Jen!
