Show Us Your Stuff July Challenge

Wow what a challenge this month at Show Us Your Stuff. It is to feature your handwriting. Now I know many of us cringe at the thought of this, but we need to embrace it - it's just an extension of ourselves. I know for sure mine has changed a lot over the years, but it's mine - no one else has my handwriting.
I chose this photo of myself and my husband taken recently on a holiday - I was taking selfies - as you do. I set it aside for a rainy day. That rainy day came just recently, when I was having a bad weekend - everything I touched went wrong - and I mean everything, including flooding the laundry. My husband didn't know about the laundry mishap, but he came home with a bunch of flowers that afternoon, and it just made the day better. He is often trying to do small things that make me feel good, and this is what I journaled about in my layout.
The handmade items I have included on my layout include a Charms Creations mini heavenly heart and a Funky Flairs Studio flair. I die cut the feathers and arrow, which I mounted.
I am so pleased with the end result of this layout. When my husband read it, he had a huge grin on his face, and now his new mantra is "it's the little things".
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
It's the little things
