Wings and Such

I’m so excited!  This is my first post as a member of the Paper and Such design team.   Today I get to share a sneak peek of the new stamp set, Wings and Such, which will be available next week.

When I saw this set, I immediately thought of these pictures that I had of my daughter and wanted to scrap.   The rest just flowed together. 


2012-08-02 PS Wings layout WM


I think this might be my quickest lay out ever.   I completed the entire thing, including editing and printing the pictures, in a little over an hour.  That is a record for me.   I guess when your mojo is flowing and you have some beautiful stamps and papers to work with, everything just goes together. 

I know it is a little hard to read the sentiment stamped on the tag in the photo, so I’ll tell you what it says.

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun

And find your shoulder to light on,

To bring you luck, happiness, and riches

Today, tomorrow, and beyond.

~Irish Blessing

Isn’t that beautiful?   What a perfect sentiment for a child.
