I wasn't sure what to do for this challenge and have no idea what others are going to do, either. I've gone back and forth on what to do, what pictures to use, which direction to take my page and ended up with this.
The journaling is heartfelt, something very close to me right now, and the picture of Hailey is one that I absolutely love. The paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection (with the exception of the black polka dot and that's Pink Paislee), butterflies by Chatterbox, ribbon from Michael's, bling from Michaels, Hero Arts and Kaiser Craft. The tickets are Jenni Bowlin, the chipboard flower by Cosmo Cricket.
I added some Stickles glitter glue to the American Crafts Thickers and to spots on the patterned paper, did my customary ruffle and added some lace from the Paper Studio.
Journaling reads: "Always remember that you are special to me no matter what. Always remember that people can sometimes be mean, sometimes they will make you cry but I will always be here...Always remember that you are smart and beautiful and talented. Always remember that you are loved."
I also added a little "Always remember you are loved" to the picture before printing.
Wish me luck!! I'm sure the other projects from the other finalists will be beautiful. I am glad that I don't have to choose!!
