by Emily Dickenson

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul,
and sings the tune - without the words,
and never stops at all,
and sweetest in the gale is heard;
and sore must be the storm
that could abash the little bird
that kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
and on the strangest sea;
Yet, never in extremity,
it asked a crumb of me.

This page was made using a picture from 2004, when hubby and I had our engagement pictures taken right before our wedding. The journaling says "You always hope that your love story is the best one of all." And that is the hope that I have.

I did some more misting and masking. I did a combo of three kinds. Glacier and Vanilla Breeze Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Blue from Maya Mist. The paper I started with is from Pink Paislee. White rub ons from Cosmo Cricket finished the look off. And, of course, more of the great corrugated alphas from Jillibean Soup. LOVE 'EM!!
I really liked how soft and romantic the end result was.

Well, I hope to see some of you playing along over at Scrap That Poetry. Thanks again to Jennifer for letting me GDT for Challenge #7. It was so fun! Hope I can do it again some time!

Oh my god! That's the first thing that escaped my lips when I saw this. Holy heck, Diana! This is just about THE MOST GORGEOUS layout I've ever seen. Didn't you lament once that you aren't good with mists?? I sooooooooo need you to teach me how to do this. You just blew my mind. You know I've always loved your work but you just entered a whole new dimension. I am not worthy to be in your midst! Wow wow wow wow wow wow.
