Layout I created in the spirit of Maggie Taylor. It came so easily and it is so very me and persons who know me well will agree. Credits: Holliewood Studios Beasts of Burden, Mr Whiskers Steampunk, Hidden Vintage Studios Red Headed Stepchildren, Christina Renee Glass Negatives

I was playing with Rebecca's new doll and came up with several options. In this one I imagine the sunshine of her hair bursting though the morning fog and glimpses of the periwinkle sky peeking through a smattering of willowy clouds, frosty snow melting on the green grass...only 4 months before the crocus pop!

I found this interesting quote by Charlie Chaplin, from his autobiography, which read: "What do you wanting meaning for? Life is about desire, not meaning."  Still chewing on that one, but it has enough merit for it's thought-provoking nature. I actually learned a lot about Chaplin last week, and his family. Always on the hunt :)

Transportation - Collage Obsession Challenge

I'm a Sci Fi fan so naturally when I found a fabulous original art teletransporter, aka teleportation, room by Starstation which he calls "Energize" , I could not pass up using it for the challenge.

My favorite passage from Isaac Asimov for over 40 years:

Second Foundation
Chapter 8: Seldon's Plan

"Down- down- the results can be followed; and all the suffering that humanity ever knew can be traced to the one fact that no man in the history of the Galaxy, ...could really understand one another. Every human being lived behind an impenetrable wall of choking mist within which no other but he existed. Occasionally there were the dim signals from deep within the cavern in which another man was located-so that each might grope toward the other. Yet because they did not know one another, and could not understand one another, and dared not trust one another, and felt from infancy the terrors and insecurity of that ultimate isolation - there was the hunted fear of man for man, the savage rapacity of man toward man." And the next line: 


Did a second layout with a bit of a different flavor to it:

Three Muses Challenge "White Space"

Leaving space on a layout page is more difficult than it seems, at least for me. I kept wanting to put "stuff" in the space!  But self-control won and I came around with this, the 5th in my character series, Intoxication. 
It represents the decision to walk toward the light, leaving behind the darkness that clouded her while she ignored her heart. She is still uncertain why she is awakening from her intoxicating sleep...and what is pulling her forward.  She has not yet made friends with her inclinations toward the good, toward altruistic desires...but the first steps have been made.

Pink - Take a Word Challenge

I've done a couple layouts in pink lately so I went into a little "muted rose" color, as in rose colored glasses. Did 2 as I could not make up my mind which to post, each has its humble merits, I think.  Hope you enjoy :)

She only felt that the candle would burn better, the packing go easier, the world be happier, if she could give and receive some human love.
