Be You . . .


As you may know, I am a sucker for some good quotes, in fact I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them :) I loved this picture of my son, arms stretched out, so full of joy and silliness.  I grabbed my Daffodil Hill kit & my pic and got to work . . .

I thought the building patterned paper was super cute & decided to fussy cut a border strip of it.  Since the quote mentions "the world"  - I thought it would be a bit symbolic :)  I decided to jazz up the border strip a bit by adding some of the grey pearls from the kit in a few of the windows.

There were some great flowers in the patterned papers that were perfect for fussy cutting!!

To create the journaling cards, I simply cut off the bottom of cards found on one of the Jenni Bowlin patterned papers & then rounded the corners.
