You Statements

**This is my second post for today, for the Schlosser Design Blog Hop Release, please click here!**


A note tucked in his brown paper lunch sack. A handwritten message stuck in the zippered pouch of his away bag. A piece of love slipped in between the dollar bills of his wallet. Little pieces of compassion and care can go a long way.

This technique was too intriguing to not try and the big, bold sentiments from the second Practicing Creativity Design's release this month were thee perfect match to compliment the mottled backgrounds. I've got to say, the interactivity of Everyday Prints is boundless! For these sweet little notes, I pulled out the big YOU and brought in different corresponding words to stamp on the background. I finished the look off with some wide ribbon.


Courtney, Dana and Paulina also have some wonderful examples of this set, and please stop back tomorrow for  another peak!
