*There Could NEVER Be A More Beautiful You*

 It's Tuesday, already? Seems this weekend just FLEW by
in a flash and now this week is starting to.
Yesterday was a *blur* it went by so fast.

Today I want to share a couple of my For The Luv of Art
October layouts:



This kit is jam packed with lots of beautiful
goodies by Hambly, My Minds Eye, Pink Paislee, Prima & more!
There's even an EXCLUSIVE 8x8 paper pack
designed by Norma Kennedy & Amy Teets
called: "La Mode"
and  beautiful stamps too!
(check out the dress forms!)
Here's a link to the kit:

 


I added the cardstock on this layout...
the flowers are cut out from the paper pad
I mentioned above.

 
and just because I felt like sharing....
My title, today,  is more than just about my layouts of my beautiful girl...
It's a song that I LOVE!
It's a Christian song...by Jonny Diaz.
-with powerful words...words I hope my girl
(and any young girl!) take to heart and always remember--
 they were MADE for a purpose...
and there could never be a more beautiful "you."
Always be who YOU are. Listen....



Have a beautiful day,
xoxo,
~me.
