Inspiration Avenue Challenge-Show and Tell

This week I was in charge of choosing a theme for our challenge.  I used to love bringing things for show and tell when I was a child and I loved doing it when I was a teacher.  The kids enjoyed bringing their treasures and having a moment in the spotlight to share about them.  I figured that many of us link up to challenges because we have a desire to share something special that we've created.  I decided to share something that hadn't already appeared somewhere on my blog.  
At least, I think it hasn't been shared.
I made this collage for a 4x4 swap I have been participating in.  Each month, we had a new person to make a collage for, according to that person's likes/dislikes.  I made this for someone who likes "vintage everything, nature, and cemetery."  This was the image on the front.  I made the second collage for the back.

I chose the quote by Robert Frost because it really seemed appropriate for the image and for life in general.  I hope you'll visit Inspiration Avenue here and see the wonderful entries. 


  1. Both lovely, Lou Anne... definite truisms and beautifully illustrated.

  2. very nice work Lou Anne! I love those old cemetery statues and you used them so well!

  3. Love these Lou Anne. thanks for the lil push earlier too i did post one. come see it!!!

  4. I've never tried collaging for someone else's preferences. Seems like it would be hard, but your results are gorgeous.

  5. Nice looking collages and so fitting for Lent. Very thoughtful.

  6. Two beautiful collages. I like how you have placed the angels. I also like the Robert Frost quote. I haven't come across it before.
