Beauty from Ashes...

This is my first Layout for the LOAD in Vogue at ScrapHappy.  The month is dedicated to a Scrap Happy member who became ill and died quickly.  She was only 52 and so full of life and fun.  We will miss her wit, charm and her stories.

This photo is a chive that has gone wild. Is it now a week or a flower.  Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder and what one sees as a weed is another person's flower.  Alison's life and death are a reminder to live, laugh and love NOW. Much of the beauty we see comes from choosing our perspective.  A dirty face is a reminder of childhood play. A grandfather grabbing a grandmother's hand to hold...that is beautiful. A teenage child pulling in the drive safe and sound - a beautiful sight!

Where do you see beauty today?  It is there to be found if we look with new eyes.
