Take time to Dream.......Diary day week 33

Friday is Diary Day week 33......

For this page I only added some stencils at the beginning,  as I quite liked the colours of the
 pre- printed page.
A fussy cut  lady [Jane Davenport]  and pieces torn from a napkin came next.
I think we all should take time to sit , relax and maybe  dream a bit. It is so easy to rush around, going from one place or situation to another.
 then,  maybe later in the day thinking we have  missed something that would have been far more important to us at the time. We cannot turn back the clock, but hopefully we can   find time  to recall those precious moments.

I will join friends over at Art Journal Journey
 where Bleubeard and Elizabeth are hosting this months theme
Count your Blessings
Time is a blessing we should not take for granted, use it wisely.

Thank you for calling in today, you are always very welcome here.
