This is the second of two pages that go together but aren't a two-page LO per se. The first page is Courage in my gallery. The subject goes across both pages, but the design doesn't, so they can go either side by side or front to back in my album depending on how my pages shake out.
This one courageous little flower was growing in an old tree stump. The average first killing fall frost in Vilas County, Wisconsin is in the 2nd week of September - The photo on the left was taken on October 3, 2008 - the photo on the right was the next morning :( To me, it symbolized striving and growing even not knowing what the future holds - and having faith that God's plan is the right one even if it doesn't turn out the way you would have wanted. "Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
I used the September Monthly Sketch Challenge 30-day Sketch-a-thon Day 18 sketch.
I lightly stamped a graph pattern on the Kraft bg in a few places to go with the Origins. I colored white tags with GM's. The icicles are old Creative Imaginations stickers that I treated with Frosted Lace and Diamond Stickles. I love how that came out. I cut the sun with the Going Places cart in my Cricut.
