Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost. That's the poem to scrap this week at SCRAP THAT POETRY . Mine is called "Book Report', because my daughter geared up to go in our back yard and explore the fox and her pups. No snow that day but read the last verse of the poem:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep
Light bulbs went off the minute I read that verse. My daughter is wearing her robe, deep in our backyard woods. We homeschool, and her book report really was about foxes, thus my warp sense of humor. We never saw the fox after that day.

Here's the close up of the book report.

Please check back in a few days, I am posting a blog candy give away, for all who make a comment and follow my blog. It's $100 worth of scrapping goodies. I had a great time shopping at a lss for some wonderful goodies. I bought extras, so if enough people play on the blog candy give away, I'll do random drawing for two people. I'd love for you to follow, just click on the follow on the side bar. Check back, the blog candy is coming soon.
Thanks for looking.
