WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR...

Things won't stay just like they are!  Hmmm catchy eh?  Well, tonight I decided I was going to work with Transparency Craft Paper.  Oy!  Was I taking on something I knew nothing about.  And...I picked the perfect sentiment and picture, as it turned out.  "Seek the wisdom of the ages" - well, I know my theology...Wisdom is the culmination of both knowledge and experience.  It was clear I didn't have either for this project I was taking on, but the rest of the saying saved me..."look at the world through the eyes of a child."  Ah ha!  progress.  I looked for some "color!" Children LOVE color!  Think Rainbows, crayons, cupcakes.  Saved by the blue paper...now we are talkin' my language.  Then I knew where I wanted to go and created the back cover child images.  It all came together and I was pleased.  I'm not where I would like to be with all this transparency stuff, and will likely trott off to Michael's tomorrow and find myself the book that got me into this transparency stuff in the first place!!!  But for today...it was good.  And my child's mind was at peace.  Today's card is dedicated to just being the child for a while.  SQUISHY HUGS.
