4x4 Friday--Words of Wisdom
The expression "bloom where you are planted" has been with me since, oh, 8th grade. It's always made perfect sense to me to to try and be the best you can be in any situation. It's seeing tiny wildflowers growing in the cracks in the sidewalk, crocus pushing through the snow, and the one budding branch on an almost lifeless tree.
Here is my lovely, blooming child, turning her face to the sunlight as spring finally returns.
The image is from a collage sheet by Elizabeth Golden at The last door Down the Hall; backgrounds and textures from Irene2005 at T4L, and freebies from Scrapbook Flair. The hummingbird as also a freebie from SF. The rest is blending, filters and brushes. I love this font, called Fancy Pens. It's free at Dafont.com.
