Yes, we have rain after a very hot week so it's a case of rain created play!

I've therefore been playing catchup with my journals.....

Journal 52


Life documented 

Quote: A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not in the branch but on its wings.  Always believe in yourself. ~ Unknown

Prompt: Use a variety of coloured papers and fabrics to recreate a collage of a pretty scene or object.

Quote: “Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.”
