Say that five times fast :)


Hi! Welcome to my stop on the Cocoa Daisy Day of Inspiration Blog Hop! You should
have come from Denise’s blog. If you’re starting here, be sure to go to the Cocoa Daisy blog and check out the rest of the team’s bags!


Here’s my Maya Road hip bag, inspired by distressed type, I used the Nate Alphabet with a permanent ink and stamped out a favorite quote. On canvas, I get the look I wanted, a little messy and grunged up.

I did the whole quote backwards so the part I wanted to be on the front flap would be where it needed to be. I made a couple of errors, but that adds to the charm, right? The quote starts about 1/3 of the way down the back side so I'm glad I did it how I did, it wouldn't have all fit had I started at the top of the flap. When I was done, I painted in some of the letters for bits of color. I really like how it turned out, but my daughter loves it even more. She's claimed it for college. And I'm fine with that. I think the message is wonderful for setting out into the world!


Here's the whole quote:


For my giveaway, I’ve got paper, stamps, alphabet stickers, some trim, and a mini book. The collection has a very masculine feel, perfect for upcoming Father's Day scrapping.  Please leave a comment with your favorite quote, and if you LIKE the Cocoa Daisy Facebook page and let me know, I’ll enter you a second time in my drawing! I’ll be closing the drawing on Monday the 6th of May at 8 AM EST. I’ll announce the winner here later on Monday. Make sure I can get ahold of you easily.



Good luck! And have fun on the rest of the hop, I'm truly amazed at the talent and diversity on the Cocoa Daisy team, we really have an awesom group of ladies!


Now it’s on to Jaime's blog. I hope you’ve been inspired by my bag!


Here’s a master list if you started in the middle:

Love this and may use this as an idea for a ministry we are starting this coming Friday to inspire teens to be all they can be everyday by being kind, loving, accepting and building others up. Love CD on FB too. Happy NSD to you.

Great bag, no wonder it was snatched away from you! I love how this turned out. I don't think that I really have a favorite quote. I'm not really a quote person. Oh, and I already like you on FB

I had been loving the sneaks of your bad, Emily, but the finished project, the quote, your daughter's staked claim…Awesome!! That Nate alphabet is just perfection!

I wrote my favorite quote with Sharpie on my fireplace mantel: "Someday after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."
--Pierre Tielhard de Chardin

Marti said...

Wow! The time that it must have taken you to do this...it looks awesome! I love the pop of color in some of the letters. Awesome quote, too- must add to my favorites. I already like CD on FB. :)

Natalie Elphinstone said...

THis is totally amazing! Just love the graphic typography on this. And such a great quote too.
I'm already a 'Liker' on FB too!

Laura said...

What a lot of work has gone in to your bag!
My fave quote is not by any one famous but by my cousin who was four years old at the time; "I want to do something in the garden, that's what my life is all about really"
I like CD on FB too.

Love the graphic type on your bag! Love even more that Annie has claimed it!!

My favourite quote changes frequently. At the moment "Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful" (Annette Funicello) resonates with me.

I already LIKE CD on FB.
