You are PERFECT to me

Today was my turn over at the Teresa Collin's Design Team Blog.  Here is what I shared:

In my world lately, we are dealing with my sweet girl's frustrations when she is not immediately successful at something she is new to.  She is a bit of a "perfectionist" and I am trying to get her to understand that "perfection" is not the goal.  I want her to know that she should feel safe to try new things and know that with hard work and practice she can do anything!  I want her to know that she is not "perfect" but that she will always be "perfect" to me!

Now I typically have a very clean style but I wanted for the theme of this page to show some "imperfection" if you will.  So I cut out a flower from the Spring Fling collection and I crumpled it up into a ball. And that felt good.  But I didn't stop there.  Nope..I got out my sandpaper and I scratched it all up.   There.  Perfectly imperfect.

Now if you are reading this tonight (Thursday) head over to Teresa's blog HERE to enter to win some GREAT prizes!


  1. Absolutely PERFECTLY imperfect! !! Truly LOVELY! !! FAB design!

  2. Love it and the message. I had one of those 'must be perfect' kiddos. I worried so much about him. He still demands perfection of himself as an adult, but has learned which areas to do that in and which to let go a little bit. Thank heavens!

  3. Gorgeous page, love the crumpled flower!

  4. Such a simple, lovely design. Wonderful sentiment, too.

  5. that flower is stunning! it's hard seeing your children frustrated...she is a beauty--GREAT page too!


Thank-you for making my day!
