goose girl...

using the Best. Day. Ever kit from scrapbook circle I created this page:

 some fun closeups, I really like how the jar turned out.  It was laying on my desk and the flower just happen to land on it...an accident turned into a creation!

 the product that I was to focus on was the Jenni Bowlin Stamp Paper strips (the paper with a heart punched in it....I love these little things, I think I used them on EVERY page this month!)
now for the story about the pictures....the little girl is actually my mom!  This was taken by my grandfather while they lived in Japan right after WWII, this particular picture won a prize AND was published in the newspaper--pretty awesome!  I was really excited that I could create something unique with this special photo, what is cool I found a picture of the same goose walking around to add to the page--serendipity I tell you!  (this is not the actual picture, I scanned it...)
Well, thank you for the visit today!  I hope your day is AMAZING!
