Scrap that Poetry Challenge #2- Phenomenal Woman

Its October 15th... time for our second challenge at Scrap That Poetry! Whoot! The inspiration for this challenge is the poem "Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou. I remember the first time I heard the poem... it was read by Maya Angelou (probably on Oprah), and even though it was years ago, I still remember it like it was just yesterday. The words flowed from her in a very distinguished, deep tone... its not often that you get to hear such a remarkable poem read by its writer... I won't forget it.

To me, this poem to me is direct and to the point. Not a lot of journaling here, just a strong, clear and concise statement. I also tried to let my layout style reflect that as well... while this is not necessarily my signature style, it (to me) is more reflective of this poem.

We'd love to see how "Phenomenal Woman" inspires your scrapbooking!  To play along (or just see how others interpret it;), join us over at Scrap That Poetry:)  Thanks for stopping in, I hope you all are having a good week!

Products: (all from Cosmo Cricket "Girl Friday" Collection) with exception of kraft (Paper Reflections)
