Unity World Record Blog HOP!

(EtsyInspired post was moved to Friday, please scroll down)

Woohoo! The BIG day is finally here and it's time for the Unity World Record Inspirational blog hop! I hope you are joining me from the talented Jan's blog. If not, please start at the Unity blog and hop to ALL 215 blogs with us! Ack! Isn't that crazy?!?

Here's my inspirational quote, long but it changed my ENTIRE LIFE. No joke.

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

~Marianne Williamson

My creation has absolutely nothing to do with this quote. It's a mini album for my hubby who is leaving on a 3 week business trip. It serves two purposes: 1) To remind him what he left me with and 2) So he remembers what he'll come home to. I used Unity's Cuter Than Most, Daddy's Little Helper, and assorted KOTMs and grab bag journalling spots. The DP is all Cosmo Cricket.






Now head over to the uber sweet and super talented Shannan Tuebner's blog. She's AMAZING!
