Papercraft Star 146 - Beauty


This week the theme at Papercraft Star 
was chosen by Deanne ...


What a gorgeous picture !!

my card ...

Well, this may look just a little odd for this challenge ....

But, as Deanne says, Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder ...

I made this thinking about my daughter, Brie, when she was about 3 years old.  Right out of our living room window was a large "hill", or "mountain" as mid westerners would think.  It had a hiking trail to the top, and it was not an easy climb.  One day we went with her grandpa and grandma to climb it, and I really had my doubts Brie could do it.  BUT, not only did she do it, but she ran back and forth, back and forth, and actually probably took that hike about 3 or 4 times.  One time she stopped to look at some teeny little flowers and said to me ...

"I don't know why God calls them weeds.  They are so beautiful !"

and that is truly what IS beautiful.

Come and play with us this week, that photo is so striking !!
