It began early in our marriage when somebody invited me to a Stampin' Up party. I instantly fell in love. The ability to create art without having to be an artist, appealed so much to me.
Then along came scrapbooking, even better I could incorporate my family photos with beautiful colored card stock and amazing patterned paper. Soon I had a whole room devoted to the hobby.
Then the busy years came, between working, keeping house, family time and church activities, there was no time left for this hobby.
Even last year when things were quieter I still didn't get out all my wonderful paper and play. Then along came Ali Edwards' class One Little Word and we were encouraged to make a scrapbook relating to our word for the year. I could have done a digital one, but I really wanted to make use of all my wonderful papers and just experience the joy of creating something again.
Here are the first two pages for my scrapbook. Our assignment for January was make a layout with 12 intentions to go with our word for the year. Anybody that is taking the class will see that mine is a bit different than the one that Ali did, but I readily admit I don't play by the rules. They are just guidelines.
I am also incorporating the class Move More, Eat Well into this scrapbook, after all it is all about the Journey I am on this year.
