Find Joy in the Now

It only four days and I finally have a blog that I think I will love. What do you think???

I also have a layout to share with you today. Something that has been on the forefront of my mind lately is reminding myself to enjoy the NOW. Every time new vision or ideas come to me, I feel like I want to rush and obtain them now. The problem with that is that I miss the blessings already in my life. There's nothing wrong with having vision or a plan but I don't want to get so consumed by reaching those goals that I miss out on all that life is offering me now.

The little frames from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection were so fun to use for this photo-less layout. This layout uses product from the DELIGHT kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.

Just a reminder to myself to DELIGHT in the NOW.

And just a reminder we are having an online crop, beginning this weekend, on the SFTIO forum. Hope you can come join us sometime next week! It will be lots of fun. :)

I like the new style, but for some reason I'm not seeing the full width of the page in my browser. On the upside I'm only missing half the linkies on the RHS and it means the main photos are larger.
IKWYM about enjoying th ehere and now - I was challenged to do a piece on living each day to the full and ended up painting a rainbow with the words 'I don't want to spend my life chasing rainbows, I want to STOP and enjoy the ones I have found already'.

Thanks ladies!
And JulieJ... I don't know that you'll read here but I'm wondering if it's your browser. I know, sometimes, my browser influences how a page is viewed. I haven't had a problem seeing everything on my page using Firefox, Chrome and IE.

I can't see the whole thing either. I'm on a Mac using Safari. Despite that, your new blog look is fabulous and so is your LO!
