Journal page: This too shall pass

When things get tough, I always remember my Dad's favorite quote:

 I made my first journal page to publish and I am happy how it turned out.
All papers from Prima Marketing "Time Travelers" (A4 pack).
Alphabet letters from Spellbinders

[Ecc 3:1-8 NKJV] 1 To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: 2 A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck [what is] planted; 3 A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; 7 A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; 8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.

Maybe this will also be an encouragement to someone out there.

DS4J challenge #112 Button, Bow & Bling

It's MAY!!  Goodness me we're almost halfway through the year! I shouldn't say that out loud then it feels worse!  So let's move quickly to our new challenge at Digistamps4Joy!

BUTTONS, BOWS AND BLING

Goodness did I have a struggle! I guess that's the whole point of a CHALLENGE! As my friends know, I'm a CAS girl, so if you ask me to put a BOW anywhere on a card I'm stumped. This card was not my first try since I was not happy at all with my first one. Too clunky & akward for me!  So here's my 2nd try and I reverted BACK to my boy theme!
I used my ROCKET image in the DS4J shop with a self-made sentiment which is available here for FREE download. Remember - no sharing & selling of this :)

The Star button worked perfectly and was sort of the starting point of this whole card when I found it in my button stash!

Hope you'll join us this month with your creations!

Love
Riette
