"...and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than sould can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)"

-E.E. Cummings

My very first combo challenge: Bird is the Word & Once Upon a Sketch!

I've never done a challenge for more than one challenge, and I'm a tad nervous about it. :) But I really, really thought my idea was perfect for both challenges, and I just couldn't pick! So, I'm fulfilling the word "Remember" for Bird is the Word, and the journaling criteria and sketch for Once Upon a Sketch! Here is the sketch from OUAS:

I chose to scrapbook about my favorite memory from 2011, which was our family vacation to Galveston! We had such an amazing time! So here is my page:
For some reason Blogger won't center my picture... Sorry! :) So the title is "I will always remember", and the journaling says "When I look back on 2011, my favorite memory is the vacation we took as a family to Galveston. It was the most amazing time spent together, and I will never forget it." I really like the way this page came together, and I enjoyed using the postcards and pamphlets I have been saving. :) And of course, the ever present glitter and glitter flowers. :) I hope you like this page as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by!
