Janis introducing challenge 61.


This challenge comes from Janis and is inspired by this nursery rhyme:
1,2 tie my shoe
3,4 shut the door
5,6 pick up sticks
7,8 lay them straight
9,10 a big fat hen

There should have something laced in the LO (to correspond to the tie my shoe). Shut the door, picking up the sticks and laying them straight can mean "recovering from something or making something in your life/self right on track" (like "picking up the pieces metaphor"). A big fat hen can mean a prize or something you look forward to when you do that recovery or picking up.

Here's Janis' take:
The journaling is on the tag which is tucked behind the photo. The journaling reads:
I have been anxious a lot of times worrying about petty things. I soo need to remind myself that I have to stop negativity and embrace living in the now. I don't know what will happen in the future but I trust that with His grace, everything will turn out fine. Life is good so no worries!
(Special thanks to Cabbie for her altered bilao or bamboo tray tutorial.)
I understand that this one is a tad difficult - but the team has come up with some stunning ideas to jump start your creativity so I trust you'll enjoy playing along.
