OUAS November DT page - Where Angels Tread

Planets shift and astronomers find new galaxies. We know that the moon changes the tide and the sun has storms that impact Mother Earth.

Sometimes that happens to us humans too; we meet somebody who changes the path of our life.

3 years ago I met a young woman, everyone told me how incredibly young she was. On the outside she looked kind of interesting, very modern in black hair and black clothes. The second she looked at me with her mild and wise-beyond-her-age eyes and spoke to me with her gentle voice, our lives interlocked.

Sometimes angels do come to visit us humans on earth and they assume the form of one of us, live our lives, speak our language but yet, nothing is ordinary about them. They seem to have a larger than life heart, their love for humans and animals extends beyond comprehension and their generosity and friendship is like that of innumeral Dalai Lamas or Mother Theresas combined. Yet this person is but one.

Because of this amazing woman, my life is so much richer. I am truly incredibly blessed.

My page "Where Angels Tread" is my tribute to her. Your inner light comes from the stars and your soul soars further than the galaxies.

This is J.

Time for the second half of the DT to show their inspiration for the OUAS November challenge.

I based my page on Nadia's beautiful sketch;

Theme: Anything Goes..

Yep! You read right.. No theme this month. You are free to create a layout based on whatever theme you like.  
You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must include SOME journalling AND the sketch above. 
Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

We would also love to welcome as a Guest Designer the winner of the September challenges Heather Jacob, who already is part of the OUAS  family since she was one of our very first Designers here. 
Welcome Heather :) Nice to have you here even just for a short while!!

Here is Heather's take on the sketch; 

And here are the close-ups of my page;
