You is Kind

One of the best movies I have seen this year was The Help.  Loved that movie.  Regina over at The Cutting Cafe has brought us a cutting file with those words that really were just so inspiring.   You is Kind, You is Smart, You is Important.  Wow, if we could just teach all our children those things when they are young they would all be self confidant when they grow up!  I got my inspiration from a blogging buddy, Craftdee Donna.  She had found these little notebooks and altered them.  I found the same ones recently and used one for today's project.  We are featuring Large Circles over at The Cutting Cafe this week.


Well now of course, I used some My Mind's Eye paper, my lacy circle and regular circle nestie.  I inked it with some Tim Holtz walnut distress ink.


I used my cropadile to place eyelets for my brown dotted sheer ribbon to tie through.   That butterfly is from a set from Close To My Heart that I stamped with Stazon onto a piece of plastic packaging then cut it out. 


Now, my pen doesn't quite match. Before I give this away I will find a pen to match it.  


I am going to add this to the challenge over at Cooking it up with Katie it anything but a card.

Hi Bren....you found some of "my" little notebooks, YAY! It shows how small the world is, doesn't it? Thanks for the credit, gave me a little start when I saw my name (must be a guilty conscience, lol) You've done a superb job, so elegant trés chic. I haven't seen the movie your refer to, sounds intriguing! Dee
