I love my kids like crazy, and it makes me so sad when they don't feel confident. My Jojo has been struggling with some self-esteem issues lately. Nothing huge, just pre-teen stuff and the fact that living with a disability is always difficult. She's always been quite sure of herself so I'm sure this is only a phase, but I have been making a special effort to help her realize that she's awesome. I'm not just saying that because I'm her Mom either. She is one amazing kid! I made this page for my sweet girl and the journaling is a list of 10 reasons she's perfect the way God made her.
This layout was inspired by Ashley Horton's Silhouette class at Scrapbook.com. It's based on the lesson about creating your own stencils. The supplies came from My Mind's Eye's Market Street Ashbury Heights collection. I also used gelatos for the first time on this project. I think I'm already slightly addicted!
I also have a card to share today! I made it a while back with some scraps from Basic Grey's Herbs and Honey collection. I love using the last tiny scraps from a kit to make cards to keep in my stash. This one is an all purpose card. I make a lot of those because you never know what will come up!
