Turn Your Eyes

{detail shot-Glory}
Scrabble letters, clock gears...and a few other odds and ends!
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus is the hymn for the second week of the Hymn and Scripture Challenge at Triple the Scraps {Patter Cross}.  
{side shot}
The scripture that I chose to go along with this hymn is Colossians 3:1-2, which says, "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, NOT on things on earth."
{detail shot-Envelope}
I have tucked the quote, "And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His Glory & Grace" {from the song} away in a small envelope {template here}. The envelope is held shut with a piece of velcro and can be removed from the page for easy access.
{detail shot-song quote}
I have added "this and that and that and this" {so my Grandmother would say} to give the page some personality.  I LOVE to 'treasure hunt' {as some of you know}, nothing thrills me more than finding that perfect non-scrapbooking related item that will work perfectly on a layout/project! The Rosary Crucifix I found on Etsy {and has been in my 'trinket box' for quite some time}, the Gear is from a piece of 'clock inner' that I recently purchased at a local Antique Store {$10 and, once taken apart, I ended up with approximately 20 gears and A LOT of other {useful} odds and ends!} and the Metal {tag} Holder is from The Paper Pickle, my wonderful LSS!

I have really enjoyed taking part in this challenge, I highly recommend it {it is going all year long}!  There is no deadline, no {scheduled} weekly prizes {although Patter will offer prizes at different times throughout the year...I WON last week! - Thank you Patter!}, it is just a very personal challenge! {and it is fun doing a NO PICTURE page!} Hope you'll check it out!
