K Andrew's Simply Sunday Challenge @ Getting Cricky

Good Morning!! I saw this challenge over at Kristal's blog and knew what I wanted to do. The challenge was to create an Inspired Heart project which for me is my daughter. I am a single mom which has not been easy at times and my daughter makes me want to be a better person. She starting walking at 9 months, knows her alphabet, colours and can count to 20 and count to 5 in spanish (thanks to Dora), but the thing that inspires me the most is that when out in a store she sings at the top of her lungs (she is alittle off key) she doesn't care who sees her or who hears her she just loves to sing. I am most amazed when she sings church songs because you never know who is listening and how they could be touched by this 2 year old singing about God. It makes me think that if my two year old can sing her little heart out about God and not even be aware of the impact she could have, then I as a grown up should not be worried about what people think about me or my faith.

So here is my project inspired by my daughter:

So here is what I used:
Everything is from Once Upon A Princess Cartridge that I just got on Saturday
Princess and outfit cut at 4" I used my cuttle bug to emboss the outfit
Cupcake cut at 1 1/2 " I used gems from the dollar store to add some sparkle
Bag cut at 6 1/2" paper from Michaels, I used Cotton Candy Stickles on the bows to add sparkle
Crown is cut at 1 1/2 " and again gems from dollar store and a white gel pen to add details

My daughter loves the colour pink so of course pretty much eveything is pink for this project, my daughters nickname is babycakes so the princess is holding a cupcake and the crown has her initial S for Sierra ( which she just started to learn to spell). Hope you enjoyed my project and if you want to go over to Kristals blog she is giving away a prize for entering her Sunday Challenge, the link is up at the very top of this post!!
