Monday Quote

The only reason for being alive is being fully alive.

– D.H. Lawrence

This is another page I finished this weekend with new papers from SEI, I loved the purples, greens and aquas in this line, so invigorating...if a scrapbook paper can be invigorating.

As I’ve said before, I love that I have smart friends who come up with crazy challenges to stretch us all creatively. This week’s journaler’s challenge was to journal with a diamante poem. If you already know what this is and you’re not part of the challenge then you’re a few steps ahead of me. Thankfully the internet comes to the rescue again.

I broke a few of the rules…go figure…but I’m happy with the result

A special poem about Sienna.


happy, small

smiling, laughing, chatting

baby girl casts spells

walking, playing, amusing

energetic, magical

    Cute, Cute, Cute, love the poem! I was playing with that line today and made a layout about my childhood, I love those papers now that the odor has worn off!
