Encouraging Words - Day 13

Hello! It's Charmaine finishing up this month's Project Parade! Haven't all of the projects been awesome? What great projects for words of encouragement and friendship!

The project I'd like to share with you today has to do with my kids. My kids (especially the girls) have always been pretty "theatrical", or "dramatic" is maybe a better word. :) I shouldn't be surprised since their parents are always involved in some kind of show. . . and the kids have attended MANY a rehearsal with us! Even though I always had hopes that my kids would be involved in theater and music as much as my husband and I, I never wanted to "force" anything on them that they didn't enjoy. Whatever it is that they enjoy, I try to encourage as much as possible. So, when Savannah and Arwen set up a "show" in the back yard with their stuffed animals, I had to capture that moment in the hope of encouraging their theatrical abilities! I used the Starstruck set to add stars all over the side panel, and to stamp the most fitting sentiment "Headed for Stardom".

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your card or project focused on encouraging words or friendship. Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not use 'em? ;) And, as with all of our project parades, we've got prizes! To enter, just link up your creation focused on encouraging words or friendship to the Mr. Linky widget on the DAY 1 POST before midnight MST on Sunday, October 18. One lucky stamper will win a $35 gift certificate to the Verve Store. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout out in the comments as they parade their fabulous creations inspired by this month's theme. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (Oct 5 - 17) will win their choice of any Verve set. Can't wait to see your lovely projects!!!
