Another frame


I got to share one of those special moments with my daughter today. We live less than 1klm from the school and walk to and from. Thursdays are a home day for her, no pre-school. We had spent the day trying to find some herbs at a couple of nurseries. When we got home she decided to put her snow white dress on. So when it was time to go and get my son, that is what she wore for the walk over. As we went past an elderly couple the lady commented that she was a beautiful princess and my daughter’s face lit up. As she smiled up at me it took my breath away. Children give the best genuine smiles, their eyes sparkle. Some days when I feel jaded from work and dealing with the politics and falseness of it all, I really appreciate the very honest and genuine responses I get from the kids. I wanted to celebrate that in their scrapbooks, so I remembered I had found this quote the other day on Quote Garden whilst I was looking for something else, and made this frame with it. The silhouette is from Obsidian Dawn’s brushes. The frame is in one of Pam’s Skip colours because it is for my daughter's album. I did a pewter version in case anyone wanted a neutral version. I think it is versatile enough to apply to grandchildren, nieces, god children, you name it. Anyway enough waffling, you can grab them here, and rest assured as soon as I can find a boy silhouette, a version with an amended quote in a run colour is not far off.
Best wishes,
Erika
