I love thinking outside the box so I thought I'd challenge the card Sistas with shaped cards. So here's a hexagon shape for you!
I just love the gorgeous plaid paper Alli used as her background paper! Gorgeous layered details and she even has am acrylic circle shape encircling her flower and greeting! So pretty indeed!

4th of July
I love that Jana has incorperated the colour palette of the 4th of July into her beautiful page. I love that she's even pulled in the soft and subtle red and white lined paper to mimic the US flag. Just gorgeous Jana!

So Lovely to Me
I love that Wendy made this sketch her own by replacing the journaling block with another photo! I love her scalloped cardstock base with the pop of pink along the edges! Fabulous page Wendy!

Reaching For the Stars Card
I just love that Jess found a perfect sentiment to put on her card: "Reaching for the Stars, we find our greatest self." If you look closely, she has added some pretty pearls and some delicate patterned papers. Great star card Jess!!

I love that Virginie has rotated this sketch to suit the needs of her photo. The pop of her orange title makes it stand out against her photo and back ground! Fabulous page Virginie!

I love the colour scheme of Jen's card! Super cute elements for one single line of paper make a project look unified and beautiful! Great job Jen!

I just wanted to share with you the message that Christine sent me with her page....
I was really inspired by a talk that I had with my daughter about inner beauty and self-worth the morning that I created the layout. Just a note: this page is inspired by a song by Mandisa called "True Beauty". The journaling on the page are some of the lyrics of the song:
Doesn't come in a bottle, doesn't come in a box
You can't spray it on, you can't wash it off
You can't nip and tuck, you can't sew it up
So don't waste your time
It's the love in your heart, the peace in your soul
The hope in your smile lets the whole world know
This little light - you gotta let it shine
What's inside of you
What's inside of me
The hands that made the moon and stars
The mountains and the seas
He made you wonderful, beautiful, marvelously
Let the whole world see your
Thanks Christine for sharing a little of you and your family with us!
