Hope...

We all know how different one child can be from the next. I have one, my second oldest son, who is the quieter one. THe one who is fine taking the backseat to all of the others. If there are 3 blue things and one red thing and all four of my kids want blue, he is always the one to pipe up and say "I'll take the red one". As a parent that sometimes worry me. Sure it makes my life a lot easier in many situations, but I don't want myself or anyone else taking advantage of that. This layout is for him... from me.


This was a layout that I did for Clear Scraps. Which may lead some of you to wonder "where's the acrylic?." Well, the word Hope was created using a Clear Scraps acrylic word. I just kept the protective plastic on it and then used it as a mask for some misting. Then I just outlined the word with some paper piercing.




The rest of the supplies came from a Studio Calico kit.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek today!

I really like this layout and the sentiments in it. It never ceases to amaze me how all the children in a family can be so different from their siblings.
