I've been framed again!

Made this layout for the Helen Keller challenge at the Pimp My Bra Crop on Serendipity. And today it was chosen for the Frame of the Day on Sassy N Savvy!

Here is the challenge, as posted by Lisa:

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart. “ Helen Keller
Helen Keller…a woman whose life was void of sight and sound from a very early age. Yet despite her physical limitations, she went on to become a world-famous speaker and author. She is remembered as an advocate for people with disabilities as well as someone who campaigned for women’s suffrage, worker’s rights and socialism. A true inspiration.

Often we take things such as sight and sound for granted. It isn’t until we hear the story of someone like Helen Keller that we realize how fortunate we are to have all of our senses.

Challenge guidelines:
With this Helen Keller inspired challenge, I want you to scrap something you often take for granted. Because her world was void of light, you must use a black background. She also lived without sound so there will be no journaling allowed. Create a title that carries your message…one that is impactful. Finally, use a minimum of 3 raised elements to represent the Braille system.

Here is the layout I came up with.

My thing I take for granted - my daughter. There are times that I get so busy doing other things that it's hard to remember she needs to have play time with mom too. And that really is something I don't want to miss out on, she is growing up so fast already. And no matter what.. she loves me unconditionally.

The raised items are the flowers and the flourishes - they were hand cut from a piece of the embossed/glittered Laundry Line paper (the dotted paper is also from that set). At first I only did three, but it didn't look right one the page, so added a few more. They are attached with pop-dots.

The crop is still going until tomorrow - stop by and check it out.
