This is my 6x6 page for the 2013 Hymn & Scripture Challenge. Our word and study this week are on the hymn “Lift High the Cross." The scripture I used was:
1 Chronicles 16:23 "Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim His salvation day after day."
I love that the verse included "singing" and proclaiming Him each day. I printed the sheet music above onto a piece of brown paper bag. I could not find this hymn in any of my eight hymnals. Crazy! I then used 4 different pieces of Blue Fern Studios chipboard (nested circles, seasonal wildflowers, and regal ornaments chipboard), flowers, and hand-dyed Hug Snug. I stamped on the Blue Fern Studios seasonal wildflowers chipboard with the Memory Box Intricate Heart stamp in red. I put the metal cross above the flowers as a reminder to "lift His name high every day." To see more photos and to read the entire study, please see my post here:

Your creativity in this is amazing! Love the idea of the music on a brown paper bag! What a wonderful vintage effect! Thanks for sharing.
