That and the silly phrase I heard at work today (the title up there) set me thinking though - what great or otherwise advice have you had? I've had and heard some fab 'one liners' that would make great LO titles. A friend recently credited me with telling her that she has to 'live a life worth scrap booking' which I believe wholeheartedly, but I can't really believe that I haven't heard that elsewhere. After all, it's quite profound and I think we've established that I'm as shallow as a puddle. There's a couple of rude ones that have cropped up in conversation and although they'd be safe in context on a scrapbook LO, I couldn't possibly discuss them here. Or how about song lyrics as titles - do you do that? Like most things, I can't stick to the short, title of a song, the parts I like are always about 4 lines! Bob Dylan: 'may your tune always be joyful and your song always be sung and may you stay forever young'....how fab would that be on a LO showing a pic of your Mum and Dad dancing in the kitchen? Come on - fish in your brain and share your faves with me.....I'll make a list and archive it for sharing. Of course, I'll use them indiscriminately and probably without paying royalties too. That's the Blue Sky Thinking for you - getting other people to come up with the goods. I think.

Blue Sky Thinking - huh?
If it was up to me, every one would have these words somewhere in their home. As you can see, I have them. Thanks to Nicky - you know her better as Minxy on The Altered Inker blog, you will have met her if you're a WOYWWer and if you haven't, I recommend a visit. My horrid photography belies the shimmery sparkly effect of this hanging - it has an ethereal quality and the painty finish on one side gives it dimension that you stand no chance of seeing until you visit. I realise you'll get around to that eventually, but meantime, take my word for it - it's beautiful. For no reason except that Minxy is generous and giving and just out of the blue, without bribe or threat, sent it to me. Thank you again gal, truly I love it.
