I Brake for Tumbling Leaves

happy new year everyone!!!!

marti here with a new journal page for y'all.  we all do alot of reflecting when the new year hits.  whether it's thinking about how the past year went or how the new year will go.  i am not one for new year's resolutions per se.  i do the resolution, evaluation, new resolution, re-evaluation thing throughout the year.  however, the new year does sort of magnify it.  one thought that washed over me very strongly is that if i live to be 250 years old i don't know if i will have time to delve into all of the things in life i am interested in!  and it sent me into a bit of a panicky feeling for an afternoon.  so i grabbed my journal and some stamps and this is what i have:

 of course having interests is a wonderful thing - and probably keeps people going as they get older.  the fact that i am in a position to explore many of them is an enormous privilege too!

i made the paper i used for the body of my house using stamps from two sets - Collage Elements 1 and Floral & Leaves Plate. the leaves tumbling through the clock and watch images was exactly how i felt.  creating this piece of paper to incorporate into my journal work is precisely why i love IBFS images.  endless versatility!

what can YOU create with the fabulous stamp sheets available in the store???
