I think she'll alter anything...

My project for today is (was) a quick one. Several of my friends have this bible and one in particular has been bringing it to my attention a lot lately. Every time he comes over we get into a discussion and he goes and gets it out of the car to show me something cool he's discovered. Then I end up showing him something equally as profound I've highlighted in a study I'm working on. Two totally different resources saying basically the same thing, I love it!

I've been watching the way God is working in my life lately it's joyful and painful all at the same time. I'm so grateful to be surrounded by the friend's He's put in my life to help me along this journey.

So anyway, I bought myself a new Celebrate Recovery bible and had this wild urge to alter it...
I really only made a cover for it. It's a soft cover book that has a nice cover but I just had to add my own personal touch to it I guess. "grin" I used two sheets of Stampin' Up! Berry Bliss double sided paper for the cover.

The "J" is what's left over from a chipboard monogram made by Rusty Pickle. I used the other part on a project a few posts ago.

I used a brayer with white ink to cover the chipboard first, kind of like a primer coat. I thought it would look good in Pretty In Pink, that didn't really work out so I brayered over it with Close To Cocoa ink. I added a scrap of Pretty In Pink cardstock under the monogram to make it pop.

The stitched ribbon is Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranate, I used a Build A Brad for the center of the flower and some Dew Drops from the Men's collection.

I must say I do love my Crop A Dile, that's how I punched the holes I needed in the chipboard.

I thought this was kind of fitting since tomorrow is the 8th and it's Scripture Chicks challenge day. I have another little project for that tomorrow.
