None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Sweet Tooth Boo ...

I ask of life the innocence of yesteryears, the happiness of the present time and the peace of mind of future. ~Papiha Ghosh, @Soooper_Bakar

Good morning Friends
Today is the start of a new Anything Goes Challenge at Through the Craft Room Door Challenges. Our Sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine with a prize of 3 images.

I am using an adorable image called Sweet Tooth Boo ... I really like her because depending on the colors you use, you can change her theme to fit any holiday or occasion ...

For this 5 x 7 card, I used shades of peach.

Baskets full of Posies ...

The dust and odour of ancient libraries, the gloom of those crypts of literature, have... all the charm of freshest images and freshest poetry. ~Alexandre Vinet (1797–1847)

I made a book mark using the image that is actually the DigiStamp4Joy June Progressive Freebie for my daughter who loves to read. I didn't add a tassel because she does not like them.

Snowman Selfies ...

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. ~C.S. Lewis
