Focus on Life: Week 7


Week 7: Capture a Collage of Love
This week l❤ve is everywhere and it's your job
to capture it, no bow and arrow needed, just a camera! 

With the barometer going up and down like a yo yo and my pain levels at the extreme top of the scale, there was no time or patience this week for a learning curve. I don't have Photo Elements and have never used PicMonkey. Aside from that, there are so many people and things I love that any collage I created would have to be massive!


So, in lieu of a collage, here are some Valentine roses for all the people that I care about. May your lives be full of joy and love always in your hearts. I wish you the very best the world has to offer. I hope the things you love will forever be a part of your life and that you will always be a part of mine.


EDIT: At the suggestion of a couple of online friends, I downloaded Picasa this morning. And guess what? I was able to create a collage of some of my favourite things! My kids, my cats, my mother, my fellow, dolls, quilts and tablet weaving, candles and cinnamon hearts. *smile*

  1. Sorry you are suffering, Bonnie! I haven't been out the door for weeks (except for hydrotherapy on Weds) because of the high wind and rain.... Beautiful roses though, and I hope they bring you joy :)
