Did you know that April 8th is National "All Is Us" Day? I looked up it's meaning and found that "All Is Us" day is about looking at the beautiful world that surrounds us, appreciating what we have and rejoicing that it is full of things that belong to all of us.

There are two parts to this day --
1. Highlighting all the wonderful things in the world and becoming more aware of your surroundings and what exists in them.
2. Reflecting that so many of these things belong to everyone, so they can be shared with "ALL".

A suggested activity for All Is Us Day is to spend some time time looking around, noticing and then appreciating how many wonderful things exist in the world that can be shared with all of us.

Since the main theme of the day is sharing, I challenge you share your experience by creating a layout showing what wonderful things you found in your world today...
Post your completed page in the General Message Board Challenges Gallery.
I can't wait to see your beautiful creations.

Here's my layout -

Thanks for a fun challenge! It gave me a great excuse to scrap a couple of the tree-against-the-sky photos I always seem to take! :D

Here's my layout.

Marilyn, I loved the idea for this challenge; provoked some thought on my part. Finally got it put together.

Grape Hyacinth Thanks for inspiring me, BetC. For some reason I've been afraid to try this for two years! Maybe I will learn yet.
