Always be yourself...


Hello friends!

Today's digital release is a special one as Sweet November Stamps was asked to participate in an Instagram Hop in honor of National Teen Self Esteem day. It's a way for us to celebrate confidence building in the younger generation which faces so much pressure in these social media saturated times. Because MerMay is also still going strong we thought it would be fun to put together a collection of young girls spending time on the beach that can then also be transformed into cute mermaids. These Teen Self Esteem girls/mermaids are Charlie, Lexie and Kumi. The collection also includes a set of three digital sentiments that tie into this whole theme mash up as well. 

First up is Kumi and I have used both versions of her in this card to create a story of a young girl dreaming of what it would be like to be a mermaid. The sentiment from the Empowering Sentiment Pack is a playful way of reinforcing that story while still encouraging the recipient to embrace all the wonderful quirks and characteristics that make them special.

Next we have Lexie in her mermaid version happily playing with Hydro deep beneath the waves. She's also been paired with another one of the new Empowering Sentiments

Finally we also have Charlie confidently hanging out on the beach with little Gully. Another great new sentiment is letting her know just how special she really is.

Now be sure to go check out the Friends of Sweet November Stamps group on Facebook for even more Teen Self Esteem inspiration from Caitlin, Melissa, Tee and our very special guest who put this all together, Jasmin Oliver! I will also be coloring Lexie and Charlie Live later this morning at 11am PST on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page and I hope to see you there!
