TGIF - Keep Smiling

Have you ever been called "youthful"? The first time someone told me that I was "youthful" I felt a bit offended but as I started to think about it, the word is actually complementary. Children have such a wonderful sense of the world and I feel blessed to work with them on a daily basis. They come into the library in their Superman or Princess costumes at any time of the year just because they feel like doing so and that is the imaginary world that they're living in right at that moment. I've also found children to be very honest and intuitive. However, the best trait of youth is that they laugh and giggle with abandon. These round robin journals are my entry for this week's TGIF challenge.

This is so adorable and enchanting. I just love it. I have been behind (again) on my blog visiting and I have missed so many beautiful pieces from you. I love the orange pages too. So warm and soothing (which may be strange to say about orange but maybe the images make them so comforting to me) Anyway, always love peeking at your gorgeous work!
Have a great weekend!

Such a beautiful example of Keep Smiling. You are so correct. Children can giggle and laugh over the simplest of things. What a great image you've used.

Lucy said...

I think being coined as youthful is definitely a compliment-it is a testament to your wonderful imagination and creative abandon which you showcase daily on your blog for your dear readers/fans/friends :)

Now if we all could be youthful in our thoughts and imagination, but wise with our actions, the world be a better place :)
