My Wish

I printed this picture last summer in hopes of scrapbooking it someday and at Christmas I saw an anonymous quote on a picture frame in a catalogue. I liked the quote and thought it would be great to do something with it. So last night I made this layout combining the whole idea of my wish for Katherine and her making a wish on a dandelion. The background and title is a used priority mailing box that I peeled the top layer off of and painted (I don't recomend unless you've got a few hours to kill--it's a little time consuming). I just layered some paper, lots of flowers, buttons, and butterflies and called it done. I wish the picture had been a little smaller so I could make the quote bigger but I'm still thinking I'd like to do a home decor something or other with the quote for her room--just not sure if it'll be more of a painting project or a paper project.

Here's the quote: This is my wish for you...comfort in difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendship to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life. -anonymous
