    Love that scripture too! I'm surrounded by the beauty of The Creator here in Washington state! It's easy to imagine the mountains singing and the heavens shouting for joy!

  4. Love the chalkboard technique with this mountain image, Jan Marie. The distressed hymn background looks wonderful and is perfect for this image. Your black and white design is gorgeous! Hugs!

  8. Beyond gorgeous Jan Marie - this one gives me goosebumps!! The thought of using this set in white on dark card stock is brilliant my friend - and then with the music layer background and subtle sponging/chalking it's even more divine. Love your style - and love every detail here. Beautiful!!

  9. BEAUTIFUL!! Love how you use your gifts for His glory :)

  10. This is so stunning! Love the music sheet behind the image. All of your elements just make this beauty pop. Stunning, stunning, stunning!
