The Outlawz CAS Challenge: "New Beginnings"

Good morning Friends,
Where did 2013 go already? As a matter of fact, where did any of the past years go? Although I would not change anything, every now and again, I do miss the days when my children were young. Especially around the Holidays when viewing everything through their eyes always pulled at the child that still dwells in my heart to come out and play. It's seems to me, that as adults, we do what society expects of us and we ignore that inner child in us in favor of "adult" behaviors. Speaking for myself, I often forget, that the small child inside me is a very large part of the foundation of who I am as an adult today.

We all make these lofty goals for the New Year. Lose weight, read more, get more organised. But these are not the resolutions I want to make for myself this year. Not this time .... What I want to do is  to try and let my inner child out to play a bit more often. To laugh out loud at the antics of our cats. To just stop and listen to the wind in the trees and the song of a bird. To see the wonder and beauty in everything. To gaze upon the world around me without prejudice.

Today's CAS Challenge at The Outlawz is "New Beginnings" 
Something new, like a new baby, a new house or job. Or maybe a new attitude!

My card is to remind me that I need a "New Attitude" about my inner child. That I need to "Be Playful" and find that something fun and special in everything I do and see.

SUPPLIES: Card stock (Stampin Up!), Image name unknown (Provocraft), Sentiment (TAC "Sail away"), Prisma color pencils

Come show us what your  "New Beginnings" for 2014 are.
