W2CB #45 - Logic vs Imagination

Hello!  It's Marty and I'm back to host this month's challenge.  A big welcome to our newest followers. And, all of us at Words 2 Craft By send our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by all these devastating natural disasters.

Our new challenge has a bit of back-to-school vibe. My children are grown, so I'm not impacted by the beginning of a new school year, but I am looking forward to fall, cooler temps and cider mills.

Let's get to this month's quote.  In doing some research, our I-Teamer, Bobbi, discovered our quote might not have come from who we thought it did.  It's origin is actually uncertain although it's often attributed to Einstein. Thanks for checking this out, Bobbi!!


Think about back to school, kids, books, life lessons, imagination, thinking outside the box...what will your interpretation be? 

Let's look at the creativity from our I-Teamers. You'll see Bobbi and I were on the same wavelength. We're happy to have two Guest I-Teamers this month!!  Welcome, Beverly and Zeljka!

W2CB #44 - Challenge Reminder

Hello!  It's Marty and I want to remind everyone that our "Vacation" theme runs through September 6th, so there's still plenty of time to play along.  Have you been on vacation this year (or this summer), and where did you go?  Did you go to the beach, or to an amusement park?  Maybe you took an African Safari or went to Paris, or just relaxed at your cottage.  Perhaps you're taking your vacation during the Christmas holidays...

Here's some inspiration:

W2CB #43: Liberty, a Plant of Rapid Growth

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our new Words 2 Craft By challenge... and a big welcome to our newest followers.  :)

Appropriately, our July into August words come to us from George Washington.

Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth. 

This challenge, we are thrilled to welcome the wonderfully talented Marsha as our Guest I-Teamer. Thanks so much for joining us, Marsha!

So, let's take a look at our I-Team's handiwork.... and our variety of interpretations! About the only thing our projects have in common are their red, white, and blue palettes. Guess the moral of this story is that there's no need to limit yourself to the "liberty" portion of the quote.  :)





So, how will you interpret these words? Link up a card/project below for a chance to win a $10  e-certificate at the online retailer of your choice. See you in the gallery!
