Challenge #35- Children

by: Khalil Gibran

We enjoyed finding inspiration in this week's poem.  Come play along with us and use any word, line or the poem in it's entirety to create your layout, card, 3D item. 

Welcome, Chris to our guest designers for Scrap That Poetry!  We are so thrilled to have you designing with us for this challenge.  Your work is always awe inspiring! Here is a link to her blog. Check out what she did with our poem...
Absolutely amazing!

Check out the poem here.

This is what our fabulous design team created....

:A very simple layout. I stayed with the word children but my layout is about the childrens crafts we did for christmas. Making christmas tree garlands with lots of glitter and seed beads! "
Love what you did with the poem!!!


"Here is my layout...pretty simple...Saw this photo read the poem and this is what I came up with. Might not be any quotes from the poem but sometimes the poem just speaks to ya and you just gotta go with it....Thanks for looking. "
I have to agree... poems do just speak to me!
Love all the elements on your layout Angie


"I just loved the lines from the poem...."You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts."

This my boy on Boxing Day driving to Nan's house for more celebrating.
I just wonder what he is thinking about .......for a little boy, he seems deep in thought."

I love your layout!!! Great choices for everything!
"I like that the line "of life's longing for itself" is really me looking at this photo and longing for summer! "
I agree... I am longing for summer as well! Great job Tiffany.

Angie's granddaughter is just the cutest... I love the glimmer mist on the layout!

Another adorable baby picture!!! This is Mel F's niece and she is looking forward to her visiting her in Australia!!!  Love all those embellishments!!!

"This poem made me think about the days my two little babes were born and how the world was full of shiny hope and possibility for them. I just adore the baby burrito, too! And it symbolizes the idea of the poem that I hope they always feel loved and protected. I pixelated their names and birthdates on this layout...I try as much as possible to not say their names online. "
Love these pictures and your layout Heidi!!!
I love the baby burrito too.. how adorable!
I love Tiffany's lovely wall hanging she made as a tribute to her 3 favorite people! "It's a 12x12 canvas that I roughly painted and then decoupauged pattern papers and photos to the background." =) Tiffany
Love this wallhanging Tiffany... I am sure your family does as well!!!

"This is such a beautiful poem and I well suited for this photo our dear little granddaughter. It is a very special poem and the sentiments are all grandparents want for their grandchildren.
I hand wrote the little paragraph, as I felt a special connection with this section of the poem.
Thanks for looking and hope that you enjoyed the poem as much as I.
Till next time."....Liz
