(Yes, once again I am late to the party--I think this challenge ended two days ago!) I had photos that would have been better choices for this challenge, but I've been scrapping the pages for a friend's birthday party I recently attended and I wanted to finish off those pages, so I picked a photo from that event. The photo here is one of those lucky shots one gets when one is simply randomly clicking away. My friend would probably not characterize this picture of her as a &quot;lucky shot&quot; but it is soooooo her! She tilts her head a bit to one side and closes one eye when she is thinking of something, so yeah, it's a lucky shot and it had to be scrapped. (Thanks for letting me post this, H! Love you! Mean it!) I was not crazy mad about the background in this photo so rather than have it spill out of the frame, as suggested in Katie's tutorial, I opted to hide the background with brushwork.

I don't think I can scrap any more snow pictures at the moment. So here's a nice sunny spring layout. :) Thanks, Katie, you are always so generous with your freebies!

Since the beginning of time, there has never been another person like me. Nobody has my smile. Nobody has my eyes, my nose, my hair, my hands, my voice. I'm special. No one can be found who has my handwriting. Nobody, anywhere, has my tastes... for films or music or art. No one sees things just as I do. In all of time, there's been no one who laughs like me, no one who cries like me. And what makes me laugh and cry will never produce identical laughter and tears from anybody else, ever. No one reacts to any situation just as I would react. I'm special. I'm the only one in all of creation who has my set of abilities. Oh, there will always be somebody who is better at one of the things I'm good at, but no one in the universe can reach the quality of my combination of talents, ideas, abilities, and feelings. Like a room full of musical instruments, some may excel alone, but none can match the symphony of sound when all are played together. I'm a symphony. Through all of eternity, no one will ever look, talk, walk, think, or do like me. I'm special. I'm rare. And in all rarity there is great value. Because of my great rare value, I need not attempt to imitate others. I will accept -- yes, celebrate -- my differences. I'm special. And I'm beginning to realize that it's no accident that I'm special. I'm beginning to see that I was made for a very special purpose. There is a job for me to do that no one else can do as well as I. Out of all the billions of applicants, only one is qualified; only one has the right combination of what it takes. That one is me. ME..... because I'm special. ~ Unknown Author<br /><br />10 comments Sat, 14 Feb 2015 22:14:39 +0000 Katie's Painting Chat - Wedding Day <a href=";title=katie-27s-painting-chat-wedding-day&amp;cat=2714"><img class="imgborder" title="painting_chat.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="painting_chat.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jcaruth910<br /><br />Description}: My parents on their wedding day in June, 1956...almost 59 years ago.

Every day you stretch into yoga poses. Every day you act like doing your business outside deserves a reward that’s equal to winning an olympic race. Every day you dig with both feet in your metal food dish like you’re on your way to China. Every day you come running if you hear even a sesame seed hit the floor. Every day you have to read with Gary . . . on the couch . . . inside his jacket. Every day you sit with your paws neatly crossed in a very regal pose. Every day you greet us at the door no matter how few minutes we’ve been out of sight. Every day you “tap dance” on the wood floors. Every day you make us laugh with your many wonderful expressions. Every day you make us love you more.

Still miss her and think of her everyday. I loved Cathy template, but I'm not much for the clean style, so had to clutter it up a bit! I enjoyed this challenge, as I don't journal very much on pages so it really was a challenge for me<br /><br />9 comments Sat, 14 Feb 2015 21:33:12 +0000 Quiet Life <a href=";title=quiet-life&amp;cat=2714"><img class="imgborder" title="Quiet-Life.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Quiet-Life.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: justbnsharon<br /><br />Description}: I had fun playing along with Katie’s chat and tutorial on painting pages. I took this photo through the window of the car on our last trip to Tricia’s. The photo wasn’t very good but I kept it and with the painting technique I was able to use it. I got a bit carried away with frames. I put the first one on and tried a second one to see which one I liked. I liked both so I added a third – go figure.

It’s the framework that birthed in me a life long love for old barns, growing corn fields, lush forests and the quiet life away from the noise of the city.<br /><br />15 comments Sat, 14 Feb 2015 19:54:23 +0000 Painting chat with Katie <a href=";title=painting-chat-with-katie&amp;cat=2714"><img class="imgborder" title="painting700.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="painting700.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: digigrandma<br /><br />Description}: Wow, Katie, I love practicing this painting technique.
