Creating a Mantra.

I'd been feeling kinda down... *so* not me. I needed a motivational and inspirational mantra. I saw the quote, "Be you. Find you. Be happy with that." on Elizabeth K's blog. I liked it, but I needed to change it a bit to fit *me*...

"Be inspired to be you. Be inspired to find you."

Hakuna matata, yes? ;-)

I decided that I wanted and needed to look at this every day. But I wanted the colors and patterns to be inspiring too! Enter greens, blues and yellows... and throw in some white cardstock, some October Afternoon papers (Hometown is my absolute favorite paper line of all time), and a super-cute birdy stamp. ;-)

Alphas: American Crafts and Basic Grey, cardstock: American Crafts,
Patterned papers: October Afternoon, stamp: Studio Calico, punch: Fiskars


Oh my! How stoked am I?! (Tee hee. That rhymed.)

Can't WAIT to hang this baby in my scrap room. Now to find a place for it... :-D

Do you have a mantra too? A daily affirmation or words to live by? Please share! I'd love to hear. :-)

You have a way with type - it looks very professional and like you could buy this in a store!

Our mantra is Loving Life, Loving You. Does that count?

Every morning I tell my boys, "Do your best!" We call it our family mantra!
