Another challenge (FINALLY!)

I am almost done moving! This move took SO dang LONG!!
I promise when the dust settles I will have a more regular schedule!
I appreciate all of you that have been supportive and patient!

OK, so there is the deal, everyone that enters a layout this time around is eligible for a RAK!!

I will make sure it is fabulous!! Promise!!

So there is the challenge... :)

Someone awhile back brought this to my attention, and I think it will not be as hard! :)

I mean, it is like Mad Libs! Anyone do Mad Libs??

Fill in the blanks, make about it yourself, your child, WHOEVER, or a THING! Use it like an interview, or use one of two lines of it... your choice!!

But HAVE fun, and let the creative juices flow!! :)

”I Am” Poem

I am (Two special characteristics the person or thing has)
I wonder (something the person or thing could actually be curious about)
I hear (an imaginary or actual sound)
I see (an imaginary or actual sight)
I want (a desire)
I am (the first line of the poem is repeated)


I pretend (something the person or thing could actually pretend to do)
I feel (a feeling about the imaginary)
I touch (an imaginary touch)
I worry (something that could really bother the person or thing)
I cry (something that could make the person or thing sad)
I am (the first line of the poem is repeated)


I understand (something the person or thing knows to be true)
I say (something the person or thing believes in)
I dream (something the person or thing could actually dream about)
I try (something the person or thing could make an effort to do)
I hope (something the person or thing could hope for)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

And from our designers... Kim Garner is so busy with her Rusty Pickle Goodness, she will have to step down. And Kate, please keep praying for her!! I can't imagine what it is like to have to deal with the aftermath of such storms!

Next challenge we introduce a new designer, AND I am having a DT call for one to 2 more!! Interested? Just email me your gallery... :) Journaling encouraged!!


Theresa:

I am sweet & beautiful.

I wonder why…

I hear my favorite song and start to dance.

I see the good in the world.

I want to follow the yellow brick road.

I am sweet & beautiful.

I pretend to be a princess.

I feel pretty.

I touch the sky.

I worry if I have to go to school today.

I cry for Mommy.

I am sweet & beautiful.

I understand the importance of taking turns.

I say “for real” all the time

I dream of being a ballerina.

I try to do cartwheels.

I hope I can do backhand springs someday.

I am sweet & beautiful.


Candi: Sasha:

I am silly and outgoing
I wonder what tomorrow brings to my smile
I hear silent cries
I see tears of joy
I want more peace to my heart.
I am silly and outgoing

I pretend everything is perfect
I feel stronger
I touch whispers
I worry about my family
I cry because I am human
I am silly and outgoing

I understand life is what you make it.
I say make it do what it do
I dream the unimaginable
I try to live for me
I hope for a beginning to an end
I am silly and outgoing
