May you always know how beautiful you are ... :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share a couple of layouts I made on Saturday :) For both of these ... I used the "Find your wings and fly" collection :)


The first one is for the latest My Mind's Eye challenge :) 



I chose my title for many reasons -- mostly because of the skin condition Brookie was born with -- she gets questioned and teased sometimes by people .... so I don't want her to ever forget that she is beautiful :) 

 






And I made another layout for Brookie's teacher :)  I will be framing this and giving it to her on the last day of school -- (I put the black parts on here just to hide the names of the teachers/children and the name of the school... the black isn't really there -- lol!!)   :)

 




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

  20. Beautiful pages! I read your post in my reader - the post right before yours had nothing but a quote: "The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. - Peggy Omara" and then your layout was right after it. What a perfect pairing. Brooke is so lucky you're her mommy.

  52. Wow... how nice are you to make a layout for the Teacher!?? :) super great layouts! LOVE your first one with Brookie. I love her look in that photo and lots of fun wing dings and stuff that you have on your page. FUN!! I have this QUOTE on woodgrain that hangs on our living room wall... that I just LOVE! I am going to use it on a layout someday. I bet you will LOVE it... so here it goes...
    "Always remember, you are braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem, Smarter than you think, and TWICE as BEAUTIFUL as you've ever imagined." I forget who it's by!! But I love it and I read if every day. :)
