The Road Less Travelled

I got the idea for this title and the quote from a layout by Gabrielle Polloco. My layout however is very different. The wording suits my daughter Emily's attitude to life and the things she is busy trying to achieve above and beyond her degree. The wording says:

"As you journey through life you will find many paths open to you. You will find that choosing a road less travelled can prove to be harder but in the end more rewarding and will ultimately bring you the most happiness"
                                                                                                                    Matthew 7: 13-14

I took this photo of her at home one afternoon when she had been busy taking Photos of her sister.

The papers I used are from the Basic Grey Plumeria collection. The print paper is from another project which I can't share yet, but all will be revealed in a few days!

The lettering is made up of Basic Grey letter stickers, two different American Craft's foam alphabets and some Prima letters. I added some stickers and a clip from my stash. The journalling stamp is a custom made one which I use quite a lot. The bakers twine has been bound round the photo and is holding the flower charm in place (thanks to Linda for the charm). 

Thanks for looking.
