Stop and Smell the Roses

Here's Tilda with some roses for you! Shouldn't we all stop and smell the roses sometimes?


Today I saw many people from our neighborhood come together in friendship to eat and talk with one another. After that I went to my first session of the handbell choir. We all began learning how to play. It was a real joy as there were 4 children there too! They were all very musical and knowledgable of sheet music. Two of them were outstanding piano players as well! So stop and smell the roses all around you. Even when you think you are surrounded by thorns, there may be a sweet smelling rose nearby.

Project Materials: Cardstock (Bazzill, Bazzill Bling); Printed red paper (DCWV); Stamp (Magnolia); Ink (Memento); Color (Derwent Inktense, Copic Marker); Saying (Vellum Sticker -Colorbok); Butterfly (Doodlebug); Skittles;
