This is me on 9/9 which was my 47th birthday, Yep! I was at Texas Roadhouse with my family where they convinced me to sit on the saddle they bring to the birthday girl or guy's table. Since my twin and I were both there I sat on the saddle and she stood as they humiliated us, lol~! Now as for my peace-loving family....hmm, Katelyn was just a doll a always but the hubs and the oldest dd decided that I needed a little more than I could use. Notice the journaling??? Overall it was a good day, but it was sad because this is the first without my momma.

Michelle is next with hers:
When I first read about Peace Day my first thoughts were: Shaking hands at Church and saying, "Peace be with you.", The lyric "All we are saying is give peace a chance..." by John Lennon & Dove Symbol of Peace.
After reading the website (http://www.internationaldayofpeace.org)I found more interesting things to do and event ideas. One of the Peace Day events is called "Pinwheels for Peace" (www.pinwheelsforpeace.com)Something that sounds so fun and would be an interesting sight to see. BUT being that I am in Newfoundland and the winds here would make it more like flying pinwheel darts in the sky. But that did give me inspiration for my page.
Using some quotes I liked relating to "peace" I print them out on the printer and sprayed them with a pearled mist. I had a Stampin Up tree die cut waiting to be used. Stamped the dove, fussy cut and popped it up. Stamped my title "PEACE" and got to work making my pinwheels varies sizes and pattern prints.  
Attach everything and I can add it to an album I have called "Vision Boards", which is a scrapbook version of the same term. They are used a lot in life coaching and personal development settings.




Peace Layout
Heather's turn!
When it comes to my kids, I would have to say that Payton is the peacemaker.  Not always with his brothers I will admit.  But with friends and cousins and many others, Payton is the quiet, calm and non-aggressive child.  He does not like conflict and will be the one to step away from a situation if it means keeping the peace.

In this picture of Payton, he is making a hand gesture that all of his youth group makes!  No real "meaning" to it but kind of way to talk to each other and know they are a family of Christians without having to "say" anything.  This pic was taken right before we left for his dance recital . . . yes, he is quite the little hip hopper!

On this layout, I used the AC Teen papers.  Some thickers for the title and some random chipboard pieces (peace sign and arrow) that I painted the colors I wanted.  Recently bought the DCWV creamy cardstock on clearance.  If you have seen it, you know it is very BRIGHT!  That is what I used for the background paper . . . kind of a challenge from a fellow scrapper to use those bright papers!  Well I did it!  And I like it!  haha

May God fill you with His Peace on International Peace Day and every day!  ~ Heather
Peace Out Dude
Here is Kelly's:
When I saw that we were going to be working on a Peace layout, the first thing that came to mind was all the anger and hostility that has come about lately in the world and how much I wished there was more Peace. Reading about the International Day of Peace made me dig even deeper and helped me to realize that in one area where I have had anger and turmoil it now seems I've started to come to Peace a little at a time. I lost my Momma on March 3, 2009 at the young age of 60 and we were so very close. The photo is of the Willow Tree Angel of Remembrance and Mom's favorite flowers, the lily, given to me the week after she passed. For this layout I wanted to show how I am beginning to find peace with her being gone and I thought the Authentique Blissful papers were perfect with the bird already printed for peace. Mom was a huge lover of Peace, rallying back in the 60's during the war and I found a great peace symbol to print in Mom's favorite color, yellow. The flower is fussy cut from the Blissful collection and I grabbed some MME pink trim along with some black bling flourish and a beautiful pink Prima flower center to finish. I hope this gives you a little inspiration for such a special day of Peace! :)Finding Peace
Presenting Rochelle's:
My daughter is only 6 years old and is always learning from her big sisters! In this photo, she has learned the "PEACE" sign and loves to show it off in photos!  I thought Simple Stories Fabulous collection was the perfect collection to showcase the funky grooviness of how popular the PEACE sign is at this moment.... even with 6 year olds! :)

Peace, Love and Happiness
Now here is Wendy's!
How groovy is this challenge??  I've been hoarding these fun little stickers for so long!  I started out by hand drawing and cutting out a fun Peace sign frame for my photos.  All of the photos are of my kiddies and their best friends.  After I had a minor "sticker sneeze', I just had to add some buttons to finish off the page.  And there you have it!  I finally used up my Peace stickers!  And with that....Peace Out!  Peace Out

Closing out  our projects is Jean:
I chose to do an art journal page. The quote Nothing can bring you peace but yourself is so true. I think we all search for peace to come from an exterior source, but really it needs to come from within.
