This is my October page in JoAnn's altered book for the Altered Art Divas Holiday Round Robin. I love Halloween and the purples and oranges, and cats and bats, and witches and ghosts, and I just love Halloween! LOL!
My nephew participates in Special Olympics, which to me epitomizes the very meaning of "encouragement," not to mention the local support he has received over the years from friends and family. So this is for all the Special Olympians and the encouragement they receive on a daily basis. You're an inspiration, Wyatt! :-)
If the background to this one looks semi-familiar, it's because it was actually the first reject to "Imagine." I came across it and was going to toss it; instead I stuck it in my Inchie envie (where I store unfinished Inchies and/or ideas for the next one), and when I went to create "Dreams," I came across this reject and ended up using it! The teeny runners came from a health newsletter I get in my paycheck envelope every month! But they were the perfect size so I put the little guys to good use! :-)
I almost changed my mind on using this Inchie for Curiosity and saved it for Daring, but since I made it with Curiosity in mind, decided to stick with it!
If you've ever had a cat and a door (and if you have a cat you most certainly have a door!), you know how much they love sticking their paws up underneath the door to "see" what's on the other side. Sometimes, they may not want to know!!

"Use the everyday reality around you as fuel for the inner world of your imagination and you'll find yourself a general inspiration to all. When hope and belief are applied hands-on to the real world, the inner self can make its mark on the outer and the stuff of dreams coming true becomes your instrument to play. Manifest what you believe and watch what happens!" ~ This was actually my Horoscope for July 13th, 2008, but thought it rather profound, and I'm a big fan of profundity so thought I'd post it in my Quotes! :-)
