Simple Reminders

Scrapbooking has always been a gateway for reflection on life, love and blessings. It records the hopes and dreams of the present, to reflect on at some moment in the future. As my girls get older, becoming a better parent is always on my mind. I stumbled across a quote online that struck a chord with me. I knew it was one that I wanted to preserve with some Glitz on a layout. Sometimes it is the simplest of things that reminds us just where we need to be.

The Quote:
"One night a father heard his daughter pray, 'God, make me the kind of person my daddy is.' Later that night the father prayed, 'Lord, make me the kind of man my daughter needs me to be.'"

That is indeed a great quote! The pages are awesome. Love the Alice in Wonderland rabbit stamp on the circle element.
