I usually don't make resolutions, but in the past couple of years I've had several life changes -- "retired" (actually, I just quit) a job I didn't love; my husband and I, both lifelong Illinois natives, sold our home and moved 1,100 miles away to southern Colorado, taking my mother with us; found out my "aches and pains" actually are the result of rheumatoid arthritis; adjusted to some physical limitations and underwent hip replacement surgery and therapy to improve movement.
The past year especially has been filled both with positive and negative situations as I've adjusted to my new reality, so I'm making a few resolutions to infuse some positive energy into my daily life. To chronicle my resolutions (and hopefully to motivate myself to keep them) I created this journal spread:
I'm working with a 6 x 8-inch binder and pocket pages; my goal is to complete a 2-page spread for each week in 2019. It's in conjunction with Scrapbook & Cards today's SCT Delivered year-long Inside the Pocket monthly class.
I also enrolled in SCT's year-long monthly scrapbook layout sketch class, with a single and a double-page sketch each month. This my interpretation of the double-page sketch:
I used the fabulous Simple Vintage Christmas collection by Simple Stories and photos from our grandchildren.
The single-page layout uses just one page of the double-page sketch. I changed mine up a bit by using one large photo of my two-year-old granddaughter on her "princess photo shoot":
I'm pleased to be continuing on the Sketches in Thyme and Creative Inspiration teams for 2019. This was my January layout (sketch by Shawn Lahr):
Prima's "Santa Baby" collection was perfect for these photos, again featuring the 2-year-old granddaughter.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
