Maya Angelou

Who doesn't love a good Maya Angelou quote?  I think I even have a little book of her quotes somewhere that I bought when she was on Oprah a lot.  8)

This set comes from MFT and the patterned paper is from The Girls' Paperie (Vintage Whimsy) and I absolutely love it.  I mean love it like I had to buy 6 sheets of it.  It has the softest gingham (on inside picture below) on the reverse too.  Anyway, this lovely paper inspired me to use Maya Angelou's quote.  (It's a shame I covered most of the DP up - LOL!)

I used (my new favorite!) Spellbinders Labels 20 and cut the birdhouse out.  I just cut the quote to fit because I didn't have a die that would accomodate.  (I regret not "jazzing it up" a bit, because the center quote seems a bit plain).

Made the roses with MFT dies and added the yellow one from a package I bought at Michael's.  Can you tell I'm on a distressed edge kick?  haha.

Well Friday is here and the weather is great and I couldn't be happier.  Boy I love seeing the back of winter!  Wishing you all a enjoyable, relaxing & fun weekend!!
