I hope you can read the journaling,(right click on it to make it big) it was a challenge over a Scrapbooking from the inside out http://www.scrapbookingfromtheinsideout.com/
Thos months theme was renewal, I was so busy this month with all my new DT assignments!! :) !! (and fireworks) that I only got to do one this month.
"For the first challenge, please create a LO about how you recharge your energy, physically, mentally or emotionally (or any combination).For the design twist, please use a symbol or visual of energy - a battery, a plug, movement?"
The journaling: One of the beautiful things about children is that they have a way of seeing thing through a fresh set of eyes. I can be having the worst day and one of the kids will bring something to my attention or make me laugh and it can make me change my whole perspective! Watching kids and their awareness and amazement of things around them is refreshing.
For me the flower represents new life, starting over, and the whole layout represents the renewing of the mind. Taking a moment to be quiet and enjoy what God has made. How awesome is it that a child nver misses the beauty that is all around us.
The papers are all from Lilly Bee. I love this quote, it is so true.
"While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about." Angela Schwindt
