Lift Up Your Eyes

Today marks the first anniversary for the Scrap That Poetry challenge blog.  Congratulations Jennifer!  You have created such a wonderful site and this anniversary is testament to this in this fickle online world where challenge blogs come and go in a blink of an eye.  I feel so lucky to be a part of this inspirational blog and included amongst the amazing designers and guest designers, both past, present, and future (3 new members of the DT will be announced on Monday!). 

The current Scrap That Poetry challenge is the poem "The Rock Cries Out to Us" by Maya Angelou.  This is one heck of a looooong poem but it is full of tons of scrappy fuel.  And, in case the poem isn't enough to get your creative juices flowing, Jennifer has also allowed me to create a sketch for additional inspiration.  You don't have to use the sketch if you want to play along with us (but I hope you do, lol!). 

I enthusiastically jumped on the chance to stay on the STP DT for the next term because, as I told Jennifer, I have found inspiration numerous times with the STP poems to scrap favorite pictures I been previously unable to work into a design.   And today's poem was no exception.  I love this beautiful moment in time captured on film of my daughter.

"Lift up your eyes upon
The day breaking for you
Give birth again
To the dream...
The horizon leans forward,
Offering you space to place
New steps of change."

You have until the 14th to play along with us!  We'd love to have you share. 

And please, bop on over to the STP blog and wish Jennifer a Happy Anniversary and let the amazing DT know just how beautiful their creations are.

Have a great weekend!
