I LOVE to Digital Scrap and have been doing so for almost 3 years. Yesterday I sat at the computer and made this gorgeous layout for a swap called Swap Crop on Scrap Girls for a friend that I met in 2008 at the Scrap Girls Convention. She's a hoot and I love her! So I thought I'd share with you the layout that I made for her and for you to enjoy!
The journaling written by Sandi is as follows:
Changing seasons, the sun going down at night and then rising to a new day. So goes our lives. Sometimes its time to end a stage of life, to let the sun set on old things, ways, relationships, habits and attitudes. And in the night that follows the setting of the sun, there is rest and quiet and restoration of the spirit. And then comes dawn, sometimes creeping up on us with a slow transition, and at other times blazing forth, with blinding light in the new day.
This is one of the greatest things in my life- the acceptance of change, the welcome of the rest after a trying time, and the anticipation of a new day, the dawning of a new phase of my life. I am invigorated by the changes coming over me. I am filled with hope. I love most, these times of awakening after a time of struggle.
