None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Peace on Earth ...

We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power.
Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
~William Ewart Gladstone

Haha. I don't think I'll be pulling xmas stamps out any time soon though I should. But what a beautiful layout! I really love how you have the label off on the side of the red banner Cara. And awesome idea inking the edges of the banner. It really gives that distress, vintage look which compliment the background image so beautifully. Have a lovely day Cara. Hugs.
