All you need is LOVE

** second post for the day to see Thankful Thursday Post click HERE**

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.                     
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.                                  
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game It's easy.                                                                                                    
All you need is Love, love, love is all you need.

Good Morning all my crafty friends! It is another super cold day in San Antonio, luckily I get to stay inside and craft {hehe}.

Well for today’s Beatles inspired project I decided to make myself a little “Shopping List” book! The song I chose for the inspiration is my all time favorite song {you might have noticed the picture on my sidebar and the frame in my banner}! Anyone who knows me can tell you that that is my Philosophy in life is “All you need is love” I truly believe that, I have been through more rough times than I would like to remember but I always tell my hubby and kids all we need is love and that is what helps us get through it!
I was so excited about this cause I got to use my cinch for the first time and it was super simple to use I love it!

Here is the inside of the book, I really needed this because I am terrible when I go to the store I forget to get half the stuff I went there to get in the first place lol {it could be because I get distracted in the craft section }
