A LO for Louise

Well it has been a very busy week with a trip up north to see my family for my niece's Confirmation! With work, Poppy having a cold and life in general, not much scrapping going on but I'm happy that I have finished a double LO for Louise's swap....quotes that move you! Mine is an amazing quote from Nelson Mandela...I went to see the prison where he was kept years ago when I was in South Africa....

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light--not our darkness--that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the universe. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. You were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within you. It's not just in some of us--it's in all of us, and as we let it shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."
-- Author:Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inaugural Address





Have lots to do...swaps, sample for a school holiday class at Scraptivate, DT work for Embellished...lots to keep me busy!

Have PM'd you Carla at the SM site regarding your RAK!
