When I read Lisa's challenge for today I was a bit apprehensive. I had to sit with it for a few days to really figure out what to do with it and how I would interpret it. Her lettering work is so beautiful and unique that I felt a little intimidated when I saw the examples.
Then yesterday, I saw this quote come across my screen TWICE -- once on Instagram and a second time on Pinterest:
So I was gently reminded to bring the joy back into the process and I LOVE what resulted.

And Lisa made one more image specific for this blog hop. Here is her image and you can read her blog post by CLICKING HERE.
