Sitting in the movie theater watching Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring, I turned to DH and uttered these words, "What is a hobbit?" The genre of epic fantasy was not in my must-read list in high school or college. Then the movie gripped me and I spent a solid week finishing the trilogy. Now surpassing Jane Austen, Tolkien is my all-time favorite author. His imagination gives me a glimpse of the Creator's imagination...
And we come to my favorite line in the book... Gandalf Said: "There never was much hope, just a fool's hope."
I am not disappointed about not making the Cosmo finalists. I have a stack of wonderful layouts to show for that intense week. If I'm into stash reduction, I need more calls such as that :)
Here is a layout that I didn't include in the Cosmo entry, my family making my requested treat for Mother's Day. My waist line looks like that cupcake spillage as well. :)
