Ant's Oct Monthly Ch!

Post by vickstar on Sat Oct 01, 2011 11:00 am

(I am posting this on Ant's behalf cos her computer has died! Sad )
October is a pretty busy month for me in more ways than one, and this month is no exception. Just some of the things we have going on this month are a major holiday, my Mum celebrating a milestone birthday and because my hubby is Canadian, Thanksgiving and Halloween. Being that it is so busy - it can be hard to remember some of the more important things in life, important but simple things!

Pink Ribbon month is something that is close to my heart. Having lost several family members to different forms of cancer - and having been involved with more people that I can even begin to count that have suffered the devasting effects of cancer - I know only too well how short life can be. I know from experience how it can be very important to make sure any messages you want shared - get shared now!!!!! Recently Vicki shared with me a quote - "Life is simple, it's just not easy." It touched me....it was a message that when I heard it - I thought immediately of my son - the 11 year old who thinks that things should be handed to him on a silver platter and that this thing that we call life is all a smooth run.

I decided to get the quote down on paper and get my message across to him now.

So this month is simple.....

I want a LO from you that includes the quote "Life is simple, it's just not easy". It can be your heading or it can be in the journalling - it is up to you.
I also would like to a LO that is relatively simple. Simple to me means a LO that focuses mainly on the photo and the message.

Here is my example LO:


Thanks for giving this challenge a go.

The winner of this challlenge will receive an awesome prize from My2Angels!!


All entries must be loaded into the gallery by midnight Monday October 31st!!

I started my LO last night but got taken up in a movie. :lol:
I will get busy after supper and get it finished. I can't believe how difficult "simple" can be when it becomes a requirement.
