It's the middle that counts the most --featuring Lily Bee :)

Hi everyone :) 

I just wanted to share a canvas I made for a co-worker :) 

I have this quote up on my desk -- and she read it and fell in love with the quote -- so as a surprise, I made this canvas with the quote on it :) 

Here is the quote --

"Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will..."

From the movie....Hope Floats 
 
I used some older Lily Bee and Kaiser Craft stash on here :) 
 
 





 

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