You are sombody's reason to smile

A while back I took a She Art class from Christy Tomlinson. I have played around a bit but have only produced one completed project. I have several backgrounds complete but am scared to ruin them by painting something on top of them. For example, here is one background I finished close to a year ago.
I want to paint a heart (with a flag background) as the focal point and add the words "freedom lies in being bold" but I've been hesitant. I think I leave the canvas on my desk to remind myself to be bold and do it already!

Here is the canvas I did complete as a birthday present for my 11 year old niece. She has it hanging in her room so I hope she liked it!
If you cannot read the words, it says "You are somebody's reason to smile".

Christmas break was good for my crafting! I spent a little time in my craft room nearly every day that I was off over Christmas. I wanted to play with Lizzie's new Love Potion stamp set. I used my "potty people" from one of Kelly Purkey's Studio Calico's set (I went to a class of her's while I was still in California and that is how she referred to them and it has stuck for me) along with the + and = from PTI Get to the Point and masked the sentiment from Love Potion.
