What I See


Spent a little time playing this morning with my September kit from My Kits and Pieces. This is stuff using the Take Note kit, which I just love! Really am happy with how this layout turned seems like it's been awhile since I've created something that just feels good and this feels good to me. I used colored pencils on the hand cut flowers, painted the chipboard heart, hand stitched with embroidery floss on the envelope and attached the scalloped bazzill paper along the edge in addition to the felt floral ribbon. Really loving all the goodies that were included in this kit as well as the add-on options.

Journaling in the envelope reads: When I look at you I see hope, I see sincerity in it's purest form. I see joy, peace, a fierce curiosity about life and all it entails. But most of all what I see when I look at you is love. Love for learning through your play, love for your family and friends that you hold dear, love for your home which keeps you safe and most importantly, I see the love that you have for yourself. This love is something that isn't necessarily taught to our little girls as in, that it's okay to love yourself. It is this love for yourself that I hope continues to grow as you mature and get older...something so important, and makes my heart to happy to see.
