Decorated notebook for teenage girl | DIY beautify @dayspring #liveoriginal #DayspringSadieRob #pmedia #ad


Hey good looking, yep, I'm talking to You! Do you realize how unique you are? You are truly one of a kind! Out of the 5-6 billion people on our planet, no one else is exactly like you.

That makes you an original! And you need to be reminded of that fact...often!

I don't care if you're 14, 40 or 84....as humans (and especially as women) we all need to be reminded that in a world full of talented, beautiful people...we are valued!

I found this cute notebook at Hobby Lobby, it's part of the new Live Original line by Sadie Robertson and DaySpring, and used a few craft supplies to decorate it and divide it into sections with homemade tab dividers as a fun gift for my teenage niece.
