Dare To Dream

The first time I laid my eyes on my niece Ashleigh, I knew there was something special about her. It wasn't just that she was cute and cuddly. It was the way she looked at me when I held her, it was as if she was studying my face and would occasionally give me a big smile. It was her personality.
I remember as a young girl she stood firm that she wanted to be a vegetarian.
I loved the way she had to help any animal that she saw on the street that was either hungry or hurt. The way she did what she wanted to do and be what she wanted to be.
I'm so proud of my niece. If she is reading this, I want her to know that I love her with all my heart! I don't get to see her very much now that she's getting older but she's always on my mind and always in my heart! I want her to know that no matter what...rain or or night...if you need me, I'll be there! I love you sweetie!

This is a book that I made of her last night.
I started this book at a crop yesterday and had so much fun working on it
I came home to finish it!!

I created the cover and then sealed it.

I forgot to bring my letter stickers so I freehanded the word DARE and then cut it out.
Again, I just wrote everything out and then filled some of the letters in with a different color pen.
Love this picture of her!!

I added these chipboard hearts around the page. I then adhered the acrylic page on top
of the chipboards making it 3D.
Love how this book came out. Thanks for looking!!
