The important things...

 I've been Smashing again...and it was so much fun!!!

It reads:

The Important things to remember:
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated
  • Give hugs
  • Smile lots
  • Kindness matters
  • Get outdoors, fresh air is good
  • Do something kind for someone everyday, PAY IT FORWARD
  • Remind those you care about that you love them, often
  • Laugh lots
  • Be kind to our Earth
  • Live with no regrets
Here are some closer shots, I find these pages so tough to photograph!

 I love the selfie on the right of my boys and I too much to NOT include it even though the quality is rather sketchy. Yes, my son's cap says "I'm weird" - apparently its an "Adventure Time" thing! The funny thing is that he decided to give this cap to my three year old nephew last summer because he loved it, lol!

I would like to share at Heart 2 Heart for the "maps" challenge. The photos in my layout were taken over the last couple of years in a variety of fabulous outdoor places in Ontario -
starting at top left and going clockwise:
  • Algonquin Provincial Park
  • Middlebrun Bay, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park
  • Cascades Conservation area, Thunder Bay
  • Tee Harbour, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park
  • Centennial Park, Thunder Bay

So although there isn't a map on my layout, there is a globe (representing the importance of caring for our earth) and the theme "important things" while the photos represent the wonderful places where we love to explore.

Since I also managed to include a picture of myself in the layout, I would like to play along with the current challenge at Challenge YOUrself - anything goes!

Edited to add: hmmm, Although I have included more than one photo of myself (the main rule), I am not 100% sure if a Smash layout can be entered in this challenge - if not I apologize. :)

Thanks so much for your visit!
Shanna :)
