Do you feel the Magic in the Air.......

Today is the day for the new Bird is the Word challenge word!  The word to inspire you for the next couple of weeks is MAGIC! 

Wendy has received some feedback - that many challenge participants would prefer that a winner be voted on rather than randomly drawn............so, with that said our design team will be voting on a winner beginnging with this challenge!  It may take a day or two after the end of the challenge to tally the votes - so keep watching the Bird is the Word blog for the winner announcement to be posted.

We have had lots of changes and announcements lately!  Since Bird is the Word is relatively new and we are striving to improve every day,so any feedback is always welcome.

Well, with all of that said, link up your MAGIC pages here! You can also e-mail your pages at pics@tidbitzintime.com We cannot wait to see what you create!  The winner will receive a prize from Tidbitz In Time

Here is my layout:

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,

And bring you home again.
