Kristi's College Gift

This is the project that I have been excited about, but since it was a surprise I couldn't post anything.  Now the old hag has been at school for a whole week, so here it is!

I found this chipboard book at Dollar Tree, for a buck!  Then covered it and added lyrics from Rascall Flatt's "My Wish for You."  I did ALL of the type arrangement myself!  My first big project in Photoshop and I am super pleased.

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow; and each road leads you where you want to go

And if you're faced with a choice and you have to choose; I hope you choose the one that means the most to you; And if one door opens to another closed; I hope you keep walking and find the window

If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile; but more than anything, more than anything...

My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to; Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small, you never have to carry more than you can hold; And while you're out there getting where  you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you; And wants the same things too; Yeah this is my wish

I hope you never look back but you never forget; all the ones that love you in the place you left; I hope you always forgive and never regret; And you help somebody every chance you get

Oh, you find God's grace in every mistake; And you always give more than you take; But more than anything, more than anything...

(My own ending page words taken from the song) These are my wishes...Your dreams stay big, Your worries stay small, I hope you know somebody loves you

Been planning to make this book for years, as soon as I heard this song on the radio I knew I would make Kristi something using these lyrics.

Oh, and for you non-crafters, this is what the book looked like when I bought it.  It's called CHIPBOARD.

Okay, more posting.  Trying to keep them organized for you (and me!).
