But you, O Lord, are a shield about me...

Today was the first day of a new Bible Study group I'm participating in called Good Morning Girls. A group of fellow homeschooling moms and I are corresponding thru a 12 week study on the book of Ephesians and each of us has a journal of sorts that we use to record our daily thoughts. Some just printed the provided binder pages...but I like lines to write on, so I am using a composition notebook. I gleefully decorated my notebook today pulling out all sorts of stash that I've been "saving" and just going whole hog since it's mine...all mine! LOL!

I've used one of my absolute FAVORITE by the sheet papers that I buy at Hobby Lobby called Maya Floral by Glitz Design. I just love the collage on this paper with it's navy and rose combination! I chose to accent it with Night of Navy with die-cuts (Fancy Flourish by My Favorite Things) and with some new Stampin' Up ribbon I bought in the Clearance Sale. The lace on the edge is from the $1 bin at Wal-Mart and I edged it with some gorgeous Night of Navy Taffeta ribbon with a silver edge. You can't see it very well, but it's gorgeous!
Here is a closeup of the quote panel (4 x 6) so you can see the bling I added as well as the faux don't do this notebook justice of all the sparkles I added!
I decided on this wonderful scripture stamp (Psalm 3:3) by Verve--one of my favorite verses in the Bible and set it off with gems, and paper flowers using the Prima Donna Petals by My Favorite Things. I used flower gems (I've been hoarding them!) for the centers and as accents on the flourishes. The lace edge is from my stash and I wrapped the navy grosgrain ribbon all the way around the book so I could "bind it up" each time.

I wish I had a bigger photo booth for taking a decent picture of this...but sadly I don't and it's a rainy winter day so the natural light stinks right me when I say, that pictures REALLY don't do this baby justice and I'm just tickled to death with it!
