Everybody Wants to "Bee" Loved...

Friday was the last day of school, and to go out with a bang the school always has a wonderful talent show. My little Jack who is 8, sang and played his heart out to the beautiful song by Ingrid Michaelson, "Everybody." His daddy and I are so proud of him. Being a musical talent himself, his daddy was quick to download his performance on you tube! (If you could stop by and check it out, Jack would love you for it.)

The chorus of the song is..."Everybody, everybody wants to love; everybody, everybody wants to be loved..." In honor of such a beautiful message and inspiring performance from Jack, I decided to create this card with the same sentiment. Made with lots of beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart Collection, it fulfills the perfect background for the stamped "bee" image from Tim Holtz. Why a bee you ask? Because starting today, Paper Issues has unveiled the newest theme: Honey Bee! I hope you will share some of your beautiful creations with us, because not only will you inspire others...there is a fabulous giveaway at stake! Be sure to check it out at Paper Issues for all the details.
As for the card, I think I will either give it to my mother for her upcoming birthday or to my in-laws for their 50th Anniversary. Inside, I plan on putting one of those handy little recorder gadgets with Jack singing this beautiful song. Won't that be sweet?

As always, thank you dearly for stopping by and your sweet, supportive comments.
Have a great evening!
Amy
