Beautiful You

If you haven't visited the Verve Forum over at Splitcoast, be sure and check it out! This is a preview of a very special Verve set that releases on August 13. To read about the set, click here. Everyone on our design team contributed a saying to this set, and they'll be previewing their chosen saying over in the Verve forum through August 12. Twelve lucky people will win this set just by commenting on the daily threads the Divas post, so be sure to check out the forum regularly!

Today is my turn to post the saying I chose: "Dance as if no one were watching, Sing as if no one were listening, Live every day as if it were your last."

I chose this quote because it has always been very inspirational for me. Coming from a Musical Theater background and going through numerous auditions, I truly understand the difference between when I would dance or sing for an audience or a director/choreographer, and when I would dance or sing when "no one was watching." There is a feeling of freedom when no one is watching. No inhibitions, no self-consciousness, NO WORRY. As I tend to be a worrier, I need to be reminded to let go and enjoy today. This quote has always reminded me to do that.

Make sure you visit the Verve Forums daily and leave a comment on each thread for a chance to win! There is also 12 Days of Verve Sketches going on! You could win the entire August release! (6 sets and 5 Plain Janes - retail value of $114!) Don't forget about the weekly Meet the Verve Diva Challenges either! This card also fits Laurie's Tall and Skinny Challenge. There's lots going on, so come help us celebrate Verve's First Anni-VERVE-sary! Thanks for stopping by!

Charmaine, that is GORGEOUS! That's some of my most favorite Crate paper, but sadly I don't think it's available anymore. Beautiful card, and quote! How fun to have gotten to choose the sentiments for the set!
