All members that participate, can everyone PLEASE ensure that you read all the rules for this challenge so that you can claim your challenge points. Thank you!

Hi everyone and a very happy new year!

For the first Lyrics/Poetry challenge of the year, I've picked the poem The Year by Ella Wheeler Wilcox as inspiration.

The Year
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That’s not been said a thousand times?

The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.

We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.

We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.

We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our brides, we sheet our dead.

We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that’s the burden of the year.

Use the poem as inspiration for a layout. You may use the whole poem, or only a part of it, but you must include the part that inspired you on your layout. Your layout title must be a word or phrase from the poem.

Here's my sample page:


- Create a layout using the poem The Year.
- Add the text that inspired your layout onto your page.
- Your layout title must be taken from the poem.
- Please use 80% Oscraps products that are currently in the store.
- Non-Oscraps products or retired O designer products can be used whether the designer is selling elsewhere or not.
- You need to credit all the products used on your layout.
- Your page must be posted in the Challenge 7 (https://ozone.oscraps.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1718) gallery by midnight PST January 31, 2019 and linked back to this thread. HOW TO LINK LAYOUT TO CHALLENGE THREAD. (https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32641)
- And do not forget to update the CURRENT MONTH'S TRACKING THREAD (https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=234) to be eligible for your coupon.

Now it's over to you. Looking forward to seeing your layouts!

There is so many points in this poem that sounds me as a bad prediction, so I don't have logical explanation why I did this page, but here it is.
