Take Time To Color

Until recently I had been way too busy to enjoy life.
Now I have given myself the time to enjoy the important things...
Like coloring with grandchildren.
Hope all of you take the time to color. :-)

    A most attractive image - and layout! I like the textures you captured in the crayons - One can almost smell that crayon-y aroma remembered from childhood.
    And, of course, the message, well suited to our too-busy times, and Sarah is so right regarding letting the inner child come out to play!
    Well done.

    yes, yes and YES! the inner child comes first...or at least it should, that's for sure! : )) great idea, even better reminder to take the time to be silly silly silly! but one thing: umm, uh, these are brand new crayons, cowgirl...not the stubs and nubs that fall in between the cracks in the box and make it impossible to put the color you're using back in, you know? yeah...you know... :D the pic looks great! that's a cool font, what is it called?

    Very nice image and a great relaxing thing to do, especially with the grandkids...brings a time back when my son and his girlfrind, wife now, came to visit for the week end, they were about eighteen and thinking they were grown, etc., well I got out one of my son's old coloring books I had saved, because we had colored in it when he was a little tyke....they laughed when I brought it out and opened it up, I also had a big box of cayons, every color imaginable....I asked who wanted to color with me, his girlfriend said, "I do"...and soon Nick wanted a page to color too....Ya know I still have the book and the pages stayed on the wall with thumb-tacks 'till the next visit, when they were replaced with new ones...they got married before their next visit, and now I go visit them and my wonderful grandson Tommy every year...I just hope they never gets too big to share this relaxing passtime with their children when they get that age...:-})).... thanks for the memories, and best regards, den

    Beautiful, Dianna. Love the sharp detail in the crayon wrappers. Especially love the thought. Your grandchildren are lucky to have you for a grandmother. :))
