Big Idea Festival - Share

Big Picture Classes Big Idea Festival starts today! This is a freebie - with twelve days of twelve ideas from twelve of Big Picture's teachers!  You can still sign up here.  Did I mention it is free???  And even if right now isn't a good time for you to participate, the links will always remain in your BPC account, so you can go back at any time to partake of the inspiration.

So, the word for today was "Share."  It is a word I like ... a LOT.  The world is just a better place when people Share, right?

Here is my layout using the share template provided by Amy Tan:

I decided to keep it really simple and just added a quote that really speaks to me.  The quote reads:  "Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.  Happiness never decreases by being shared."  Buddha.  

If the inspiration from the Big Idea Festival keeps me going in this direction, I just may be creating a 6x6 album of my favorite quotes!  Which totally goes with the Festival theme - "Words to Live By".  

What is your favorite quote???

This is an absolutely beautiful quote Cheri, I would like to use it too if that's ok.
How was Jay's first day?

I love your idea about an album of quotes and have popped over to sign up for this. I may just only be looking each day but I may join in if I am so inclined.

A great idea to use quotes for each word. I've decided not to create a mini-album, but am hoping to create a layout each day inspired by the word. We'll see how it goes.

Cheri I like what you have done here and I think if I can keep it simple too I might be able to participate. I like BPC festivals, it's a great opportunity to meet the instructors!
I don't know if I have a favorite quote, there are so many!

I'm making a quote book, Cheri... well, actually I haven't technically started it yet, but it's been working around my brain for quite some time. A friend is making a 12x12 one that she started recently and it's awesome. Thanks for sharing the class info, I signed up, but apparently I signed up in 2010 and never did anything back then either. sigh. I'm a slacker. My fave quote, although I've yet to embrace it into myself is, "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." by Anais Nin
