This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Today Be Happy and Enjoy Life

Hello Everyone

I hope you are having a super Saturday!

I have a page to share with you with for the current CSI challenge here.

And here is my page.

This photo was taken at the park down the road from us, where the pathway into the park has this arch of Jacaranda tree's. One would think that it's spring or summer, but was taken about 4 weeks ago.  This winter has been so mild that the trees have not really lost their leaves and the grass is still green in many places.

I used Teresa Collins papers Now and Then as well as Everyday Moments. I also did a lot of stamping on the background with some Bo Bunny stamps and a Pink Paislee stencil. The chipboards are Celebr8. The flowers are Prima and Petaloo and my leaves a diecut from Seart Craft.

The title is all about my journalling too, and this is documented on the "Recorded" tag under the photo.
My journalling says this: My wish for you is that you would live everyday to the fullest.  That you would know what you want from everyday, and that you find the things that you are passionate about.  Live what you love and love the life you live! Find you happiness and joy in all things, and enjoy and nurture the small things!

It is my sons 6th birthday tomorrow and so is simply all the things that I wish for him as he grows and lives each day.

I hope you find some scrappy time this weekend.
Take Care
