A new scrapbook layout and blogging prompt

I don't like to say I have given my life to art. I prefer to say art has given me my life.
::: Frank Stella :::

This layout was my last one for the Scrapbooker Online Design Team. I decided to make more time for my personal goals, to make time to put more thought into my layouts, to take a leap of faith that this is the right move. I think I'll be making less layouts but that they'll just be more thoughtful and meaningful to me. I hope.

I have posted at SBO my "goodbye" and thanked the owners of SBO. I don't want to get all emotional again - it was a very hard decision to make. I am still going to go visit them in a few weeks in Boston, and I hope that the only change at SBO is that I am not receiving the DT kits every month.

Moving on, I was surfing the internet for some kind of blogging prompts. I came across writingtime.net
She wrote a post about what is on her desk, an idea originated on John McNally's blog. Here is what is on my desk, besides printer and computer.
