You can call me Flower

Hey friends! I am a lover of Disney movies and Bambi is one of my favs! I love the part when Thumper's mom reminds him of what his father tells him, "If you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all." Good advice! Then my other fav quote is when Bambi thinks that the skunk is a flower and the sunk says "You can call me flower if you want to , I don't mind." Two great quotes to remind us to use our words for good and to always see the best in people.
I printed a coloring page that I found online and traced it into my interleaved bible. Then I water colored the skunk "flower" and then I stamped the flowers, Not the skunk;) lol! from the Fantastic Flowers stamp set on some water color paper. I water colored them using mermaid markers to get the bight vibrant colors. I cut the flowers out and attached the flowers with my tape runner to my page. I used the Kindness Matters stamp set to stamp the quote at the top. This movie reminds me of my childhood and I love having a piece of that in my bible now. I journaled it with the verses in Job 3:3-4 Behold, you have instructed many, and you have strengthened the weak hands. Your words have upheld him who was stumbling, and you have made firm the feeble knees. We need to remember that our words can either make people stumble or help strengthen weak knees! That's so good! Lift eachother up! The world can tear us down but we can lift each other up by using kind words, so simple right?
