Paper Flowers on a Sunday afternooon.
I made these flowers yesterday (while Bella was learning her books of the Bible for Bible class) my fingers are still stained.
I wanted to put something on there from her 7 year old year I looked down and there were these jeans that I had been cutting up using for another project. just seemed to go perfectly with this. 7 flowers... 7 years old.
She was having a hard time learning those bible books. (some of those names in the old testament are tough!!) I thought hmm.. She is a cheerleader. I am her cheerleader. What better way for us as parents to encourage our little ones than to let them know we are behind them. We love them and that we are proud of them. That WE HAVE FAITH IN THEM. WE KNOW THAT THEY CAN DO IT!
Hope she can look back at this and know that her parents really are on her side. (even when it seems like we are being the mean parents. It is for good reason. (like making her listen to the books of the bible song over and over) Some day you will appreciate it when you can find Ecclesiastes with no problems whatsoever! Love you kiddo!
I made this layout using Core dinations card stock, Donna Salazar patterened paper, a piece of cardboard I stripped and stained with Tim Holtz stains, Glimmer mists, some of Bella's old jeans, Jenni Bowlin Butterflies and bingo Card, I also altered the butterflies to match the layout, Girls Paperie embellies, American Crafts Stickers and chipboard Thickers, My little Yellow Bicycle Doilies, Stick Pins by Making Memories, Crystal Stickers Jewels
