Color This Quote - August Challenge

Hi Artists in Blogland!  Jessica here with "Color This Quote - August!"  Here's this month's quote:

Short and sweet, right?  How will you interpret it?  Here's how the Broadway cast of Newsies interpreted it!  I hope watching this gets you energized and inspired!

  2. What a great challenge! I just used ICAD to put all my favorite quotes in one collection but didn't have this one. Now I do! I love the movie "The Dead Poet's Society" and this musical looks great. A favorite quote of mine is "Somewhere over the rainbow".

  3. Lovely challenge, and good to see Susi's wonderful page spotlighted! Valerie

  4. This challenge really spoke to me!

  5. I haven't seen the musical, but I sure love this song. Blessings!
