True Statements

Every now and then I see a quote or sentiment that stops me in my tracks, and resonates SO deeply, it's all I can think about.  Does that happen to you?  This Cherish Family sentiment from Stampendous completely knocked my socks off - I'm planning to make some sort of wall hanging with it, once I can figure out exactly what I want.  I LOVE THESE WORDS!  They are absolutely words to live by, and something I want to say to everyone, every day.  If we all practiced this, wouldn't things be so much better?!?!?! (side note: for me, family is more than just people I'm related to - it's the close friends who I choose to be my family, too!)

Anyway, I digress.  It's my day to host the 3D Challenge over on Paper Craft Planet, and this week I'm all about the paper flowers.  You should come and play along! In the center of my die cut flowers, I added a little Crushed Black Glass Glitter.  All flowers need bling, right?

I'm also playing along with the Stampendous challenge this month, which is to focus on sentiments.  Check out the challenge details in this post.
