The Tables Turned

a poem by William Wordsworth

This is the new poem for the Scrap That Poetry challenge. Click on the link here to get the poem.
I found this poem quite a challenge. I would have to say that this possibly wasn't the poem or anyone else's problem. There is just so much happening at the moment.....reports, parent interviews, my hubby being away and our trip last weekend to Sydney for a wedding......not at all conducive to scrapping.....and boy am I missing it.

Anyway, the thing that I took from this poem was that you can learn as much from nature and being outside than you can from books. So I decided to use these photos. Brayden was about 2 and a half when I took these photos. He was so intently focussed on the flowers (what us adults know as weeds).......he really loves nature and being outside.
I have used Kraft cardstock, patterned papers, tissue paper to make the flowers and some acetate to make other clear flower buttons. I doodled around the flowers.
Anyway, you have until the 14th to get your layouts, cards, gifts etc in for the chance to win. Click here to visit the Scrap That Poetry blog.

Now back to work.......I will be promoting the STP blog hop that is coming up in the next little bit.
Have a great rest of the working week.

Mel, this poem certainly did challenge us, but I think the end results were excellent
