I Am Resolved

The other day
on Ronda Palazzari's blog, she posted a gorgeous journal page with the word Resolve. Having gotten my attention, I proceeded to read what she had to say about it, and discovered that it was her design team project for One Little Word. Ah haa... I like this! A challenge to scrap a word... RESOLUTIONS. Immediately an old gospel song came to my mind. It starts...

I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world's delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
These have allured my sight.

but this is the verse I was thinking of...

I am resolved to follow the Savior,
Faithful and true each day;
Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth,
He is the living Way.

That was my inspiration, and this is what I created...

I started with the
8x8 Place In Time paper pad from Graphic 45. I backed the January sheet with a piece from their 12x12 Communique pad plus some chipboard for added strength.

I printed the photo
in black and white to match the papers better.

A tag from the 
January embellishments sheet and a French Lace paper doily.

Clear Rock Candy
Stickles on the snowy parts and TPC Studio rhinestones.

 A Momenta metal corner.

Shabby Chic
Treasures frame by Prima, a Spare Parts bottle cap from The Paper Studio, and I Am Roses flowers. More tags with one having my list of Resolutions.

A Prima clock.

More I Am Roses.

Authentique Petite
Type Square alphas and American Crafts Doll Thickers that I colored with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
