Aim for the moon - STG's August challenge

The August challenge forSCRAP THE GIRLS is to use STARS!! How good is that challenge..

I had this photo of Nisha looking out our lounge window at a very bright full moon and thought.....humm... I shall use that photo with the quote I love...

Aim for the moon, even if you miss, you will land among the stars!!

I used old kaiser papers, used some gesso and a star mask, punches and stars cut out with dies.. and old kaiser flowers too!!

Thanks for dropping by and thank you for all the comments you leave.. they brighten my day!
