Let your light shine!

Happy Friday everyone!  We are enjoying cooler weather today after a 3 day heat wave.  YAY!

I am writing today to share a layout that I made for the current "Off the Rails Scrapbooking" challenge.  This month's challenge is to use the following mood board for inspiration:
In addition, the challenge asks you to use more than one photo.

I am also linking my page to this month's Art Journal Journey challenge:

Their theme this month is "Cirlces."

I was inspired by the gorgeous browns, the beautiful blues, the distressed white paint, and the amazing light pictured in the Off the Rails mood board. And I used chipboard circles attached to my mason jars for the AJJ challenge.  

Here is my take:

With a different angle:

The photos were taken of Anne in August of 2013.  This layout was made with my heart to my youngest daughter.  My handwritten journaling reads as follows:

Anne, always remember that you can be whatever you want to be!  Just let your beautiful inner light shine for the world to see!

Thank you, "Off the Rails Scrapbooking" and "Art Journal Journey" for inspiring me once again to make a scrapbook page!  I loved working with the beautiful mood board and the circles!!!

And thank YOU for stopping by my blog.  Have a happy, scrappy weekend.
