Take a Word Challenge - New Year

 
"I believe the children are our future,
Teach them well and let them lead the way.
Show them all the beauty they possess inside.
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier.
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be".

Lyrics from "The Greatest Love of All" - music by Michael Masser and lyrics by Linda Creed.
 
The beautiful photo is from a collection put together by BW Sarudy - "It's about time".  I coloured it from original black and white.  Elements and backgrounds by Rosey Posey of Scrapbookgraphics.

Beautiful, Marie, the colouring is so expertly done, shading on the dresses and hats and the background perfect for the images!

Dear Marie, this is a brilliant way to close your 2013 collection of art. What I like most is that you print in your art your style. When someone sees your work knows that is your creation.
Have a fabulous new year, dear friend. I hope I will create more next year...
