Be -- my OLW for 2013 :)

Hi everyone :)

Our latest challenge is live at LESSology and this time we want to see HEARTS!! :)

I made a canvas for this challenge :) I decided that this year my One Little Word (OLW) would be "BE" :) 

I made this using the December kit from Paper Made Bakery :)



Be playful
Be love
Be joyful
Be happy
Be me
Be mindful
Be peaceful
Be kind
Be helpful
Be joking
Be me
Be art
Be me
Be heartful 
Be wonderful
Be inspiring
Be good
Be fun
Be witty 
Be real




My heart on here is a heart ornament I picked up at Target AGES ago and just have been holding onto it FOREVER :)






  I loveeeeeeeee our sponsor for this challenge too!!!

ECHO PARK!! :)

 This is the collection kit that we have as our prize this time!! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
