Sounds rather strange, doesn't it? This morning I am having tea and scones with some dear friends while we discuss our book club selection, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
I finished it a few days ago and am anxious to see what my reading cohorts think. I thoroughly enjoyed it; it's the kind of book that is easy to pick up and read a bit at a time, and come back and not be lost!
I think one of the things that really impressed me with this book was that it is all in letter form; letters to and from characters. Letter writing is such a lost art, isn't it? We email and text and leave comments and messages and there is nothing to show for it -- no stories to be told, or love letters to be found by generations to come. It's kind of a sad thing for this generation. I am hopeful that there are people who still journal though, and maybe our love for scrapbooking, and those treasures, will be what we pass down instead of letters.
Looking at today's Inspiration Challenge 185 reminded me of when my son could fit into little shoes! So I got out his scrapbooks and reminisced for a bit! I have to get busy on my daughter's - she will graduate in two years (high school) and I am only done through 5th grade! YIKES!
Here is my inspired card for today:
and here is the pair of shoes from BUGALOO that inspired me:
They look so comfy, don't they? I wanted to keep the design of my card simple like the shoes. Click on the photo for a close-up view~
The verse is from Quiet Waters by Our Daily Bread designs. I used my Scor-Pal for the top and bottom scores on the base.
