Altered Faith Journal/Notebook ~ Psalm 9:1

Happy Wednesday - again!  I'm delighted to bring you another post today - I have meant to post this for since yesterday - no time like the present! :)
This is an altered notebook that I made for Deedee's Digi Blog Challenge ~ this week's challenge is:

And now for this week's challenge! This week we would like you to
make a project featuring a Scripture verse of "praise."

Although I can't wait to craft with the beautiful digi I won on the Opening Day blog hop (take a peek at her digis here), I decided to use the digi that Deedee is giving away for free on her blog - take a peek!  It was PERFECT for the person I'm making this little altered notebook for.  At my son's preschool, there are many "helpers" that are often overlooked and I try to pick up little things here and there to accompany a gift card as a way of saying thank you for all you do!  This is a notebook that I picked up at the $1 bin at Michael which was super cute - I even found matching notecards :)  But I altered it using this fabulous verse from Psalm 9:1, perfect for those who show their love for Him through their work!

Using lots of ribbon, I anchored the ribbons to the side in a multitude of colors, drawing from the color palette of the DSP.  A little bright and whimsical, but she's a wonderful 17 year old high schooler volunteering her community hours to work with our children.
