Challenge #11- Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

In honor of Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel's) birthday on March 2nd, our poem for the month is Oh The Places You'll Go.  What an absolutely wonderful poem/book that is appropriate for all ages.  I love to read it to my students on the last day of school.  What a great graduation present, etc!  We hope that you find inspriation in this poem and join along with us during this challenge.  Just a reminder, you may submit layouts, cards, mini books or altered art! You will see a variety from the design team and guest designers this month!
First, I would like to welcome our two guest designers for this challenge.

I think I will be creating more for this challenge as well, because there are just so many possibilities!
So, I hope we inspired you to go create! 
Few reminders... you have until March 14th at 10am EST to link your entry to this post!
You could win the wonderful RAK from Audrey and be our guest designer for challenge #13.
I will leave you with a few words from the poem...
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life's
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on your way!
