Thanks! I had a lot of fun making it, and it does make me feel upbeat when I look at it, which is what I need.

Okay everyone, I finally got my vision collage together, it is now my profile pic, and I have it on my Sparkpage too, feel free to check it out. All I have left to do is find a suitable frame and put it in a spot where I will see it a lot.

I thought so! I have photoshop on my computer (one of the perks of being the yearbook advisor for 12 years!) I meant to get to it today, but last minute packing has taken over! Great job!

Sorry I am a little slow getting back to the board, but I really appreciate the comments (((blush)))

I used Photoshop Elements and I was really worried about not finding pictures that I would like since I had already cut some out of magazines, but I was able to find great stuff on Google Images. I used a digital scrapbook paper for the background and some digital tags that were all freebies that I found online. It was fun to make and I like the vibrant colors.

Glad it was well received. Can't wait to see more from other folks.

Oh, you all these are wonderful collages! I'm so glad I decided to post this idea. I'm still slacking too, but I was away all weekend and now I'm in my last 2 days of class. These last few days have been hectic and I've been doing nothing but research, making maps, and doing labwork, so I haven't even been able to keep up with the spark website in a few days. I've been keeping up with my water and calories though. After tomorrow I will be able to get on here and get down to business on my goals and collage....woohooo, it will be the final day until the end of august when I have to start up again. Thank you guys for posting them on your sparkpage, I love looking at your collages! They are inspiring to not only you, but to the rest of us as well.

Fantastic job guys!

I'm just putting mine on my spark page so feel free to have a look.

I did mine last week and forgot to put it up.

I used magazine clippings and included pictures of my celebrity idols and motivational words.

I just thought of this....
Since I did my collage on the computer, I can print out copies to put in different places or even in a frame (I did mine 8x10).

I think I will put on on the bathroom mirror, one on the fridge, and one in my calendar so that I will see it daily.

Drumroll please.....

My vision collage is on my SparkPage. Actually, I am using it as my avatar because I like the colors, but it's not clear at that size. Please check it out.

Special thanks to Eco-girl for posting this wonderful idea! emoticon and also to Shakespearelvr and my hubby for reminding me that I do actually know how to use Photoshop emoticon

Please let me know what you think!

Okay, I really think that somehow I ended up being your (evil) twin and that we were separated by birth. See, my hubby was watching me tear pictures out of a book and asked me why I was doing it. I explained and he asked me why (since I have done a bit of digital scrapbooking) that I didn't do it in Photoshop so it would be easier to share....

I explained because I didn't have access to a scanner right now and he reminded me that I could take a picture of them and use them that way emoticon . Some days I am really dense!

You know.. I have been looking for another reason to go out and get some new magazines! This is such a great idea! While I think it would be fun to actually cut out pictures.. I have pondered the idea of building it in Photoshop.. then it could be shared online! Not that I have a lot of time to do that.. but maybe!

Oh I kept up with her, I was wanting her to be the first lady to do it. Her name is Ali I think.

Also, my mom had me watch "The Secret" video, lol. She said she was convinced I had it already because my life was coming together (from what she thinks: I think I have some work to do). But the whole premise makes sense, "If you think positive thoughts, positive things will come to you."

Congrats! Here I thought I'd have mine done by now, but if I have time at Hallmark tonight I might get to just starting it. My Global Info System class really picked up this week and all I've been doing is homework for that. Now it's the weekend and I can get my collage started.
Way to go! Yours sounds like its off to a great start and sounds so pretty :-)

I've started off my vision board by painting a cork board black (to match my office) and then put an antique ornate picture frame around it. It is very pretty...now I need to get the pictures, words, etc to put on it!
Has anyone read or seen the secret?? LOVE IT! They suggest doing this too. Also the lady who won the biggest loser (forget her name) she said that she constantly visualized herself as thin and healthy.

I think that sounds like a wonderful idea. I'll have to see what I can come up with. I have wonderful ideas in my head, but I don't know if I can come up with anything creative that doesn't look like it has been attacked by a 2 year old! Let me see what I can do emoticon

I hope it's alright that I post this challenge since I'm not one of the team leaders. I just thought this was a good idea for everyone after reading everyone's stories of how they want to stay motivated and be the best selves they can be.

These are the instructions on how to make a vision collage. This is also on your "SparkPoints" page.

The link is at the bottom of this message.

What I'm hoping is that everyone go and make this collage, perhaps scan or take a picture of the collage and post it in your pictures on your sparkpage (if you can, if not..just describe it to us)! This definitely not a one time challenge either. As we change, our goals change so feel free to make one anytime you feel it needs to be updated.

I've noticed a lot of you have children. Get them in on it, too! After all they are a fantastic source of motivation.

This was just an idea, so if you do not wish to do it, no problem. I'm going to make mine tonight and I'll post when it's on my sparkpage for all to see.

Happy Collaging
