Default Challenge No 5 - JOURNALING

As some of you may know, we lost a friend and a Cheery-O last month. Andrea was a little ray of sunshine and energy and impacted me in the small ways we interacted. As I took a stroll through her gallery, I came across this layout and quotation that struck me.



Forgive me, if I blend this month's journaling with a little of Quote Me, but this quotation will be the basis of our challenge this month. "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ~Robert Brault

What I am challenging you to do is to pick a little moment and tell us about it. Why do you enjoy doing it? What does it mean to you? It can be easy sometimes to write about the momentous occasions - births, deaths, weddings, graduations. But most of our lives are made up of these so-called "mundane" moments. I want to hear about the little joys in your daily life. Please give us at least three sentences - try not to just have a sentence or a title on your page. Though I know that Andrea's passing inspired this challenge, it doesn't have to be a bittersweet page! Andrea was happy and full of life. You can echo that sentiment in your little moment. From a glass of wine on your deck, to reading a bedtime story, to making dinner...what small moments do you treasure?

Here is some inspiration from our Cheery-O's to get you started!

From Cindy


From Diane


From Angela

And mine!


And if you need some products to scrap with, Angela (Alegna) put together a fantastic list to help you out - including one with the word art for this quotation!







Here are the rules one last time!

RULES
  • Scrap a page about small moments with at least three full sentences.
  • You must use 80% Oscraps products.
  • Your page must be posted in the Number 5 Gallery by the end of the month and linked back to this thread.
  • You must update the monthly tracking thread to be eligible for your coupon.

I ll be makinmg this for sure...as you saw, I picked your page as it is full of beauty, emotion and what you based the challenge in is my mantra to be happy: enjoy the "simple abundance" - I was even talking about this to Sarita today.... the little things that actually amount to the big things Your page is extraordinary ...sorry not stopping longer, my net is crazy plus my brain doesnt work (and is past 3 am here!)

Sara, I guess I took my inspiration from the sentiment you expressed rather than the quotation you referred us to. A very lovely thought.

Those are great Tamsin!! You don't have to use the quote, just let it inspire you - which it did!!

Cynthia - Thank you so much again for the GSO. I don't know that I ever had one before!

Diane - That's a great page! I love the journaling - it just makes me smile!
