I can Be Strong

Hey everyone how's your week coming along? Have you been listening to the radio lately, it seems the song Happy seems to be on the radio every time I take a drive, puts me in a happy mood for sure, maybe even clapping along while I drive...
Anywhoo it's early March and I thought I'd work with the mood board of Scrap Around the World
sumptuous pinks...
I never take selfies, they seem to be kinda selfish if you know what I mean
but I was taking on Skype with my kids and decided to take one.  Then I bought this cool app by Ronda for my tablet and I played with it and here's the result
a very cool frame with some very encouraging words...
I also used it with my kids
see the cool frames, carte postale and the Sooo loving this!!!?

I had a lot of fun layering, using the stripes in the mood board as my photo background
and in other pink touches

I also saw some metal in the paint brush of the photo so I went with some gold vellum

there was also wet medium in the inspiration so I worked with some yummy paste

I also used my sewing machine to add a few layers of pink tulle as inspired by the dress in the photo
Here's a sneak peek of my journaling
I can be strong
I can be Happy
I can be a Better Person
I can be a Better Mom
I can be a Better Friend
I can be Myself 
I can be Loved

I used inspiration from the Mojo Monday awesome sketch

And just because I am happy I just have to share it with you!
here's the mood board before you go
