Hi everyone. I am back with a really fun project. The theme for the current challenge from Corrosive Challenges is Hop Into Spring. All you have to do is create a project for Easter or Spring. Our sponsor is Sami Stamps and the prize is a $12 gift voucher!!!
I decided to do a mixed media piece using Comfy Cocoa by Sami Stamps. I recently got a new planner to try to stay more organized. I bought all the pieces separately and put them all together in a small binder. There were a few chipboard pieces included with some of the parts I ordered. I told my mother-in-law I was going to decorate them. She said she wanted to tell me a story. She was talking with a friend of hers when her friend told her that her daughter-in-law (that would be me) is so pretty and really lights up a room.
I am like most women. I put myself down a lot. I never think anything I do is good enough and I have never considered myself pretty. I gained a lot of weight and am very self-conscious about it. My mother-in-law is always telling me she loves my hair and thinks I am so pretty. After she told me her story she asked if I would please decorate one of the pages with the quote, "I light up the room." She said that way, I would never forget. So here it is. I hope you guys like it.
Please head over to the Corrosive Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
