New Year, Renewed Challenge!

So it's a new year, and I think for me it's definitely time for some new inspiration (or renewed inspiration!) So, as promised, I am starting the Lisa Bearnson challenge to scrapbook what's most important. Every week there will be a new page inspired from her book "50 Moments: Scrapbook what matters most" This week's was Words to Live By. For this page I wanted to make it about my favourite quotes that I try to live my life by. I'm not sure the journaling came out very clear in the pic, so here it is: "If you are around me long enough, you will often hear me say "life takes care of itself", "If it's meant to be, it will happen", or "What will stressing out about it accomplish? Nothing! So don't do it!" If you haven't noticed by my fav quotes, that I like to live life as it comes, and be as stress free as possible!"

Living that way is way easier said than done, but I try to follow my own philosophies!

The paper I used was Bo Bunny, and I used some QK for the fonts and photo corners. I tried for the first time (and fell in love with) Tim Holtz Grunge board! I inked them with some red ink, then put brown sparkles over top, and I love them! hehe There will be a new page every week for 47 more weeks!

I had a lot of fun yesterday at the Crop at Creative Accents, and probably too much fun, because I got a very unimpressive amount of creating in! In 12 hours, I made 1 single layout, started (but didn't finish) a double page layout, and made 1 card! But it was my first time playing with my new Copics that my husband got me for Christmas! I am learning that I SUCK at coloring! lol I made a card with the Copics (my first card using Copics). The stamp is the Cupcake Diva from Stamping Bella, and the papers I used where from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry collection, which I didn't think too much of when I saw it online, but when I saw it in person, I bought the whole collection! It's the cutest paper!!

So, there it is! I've finally posted some new creations! I hope you enjoy them! I plan on keeping it up this time too! Who knows what I'll get into tonight, but maybe I'll finish that second LO and have something new for you tomorrow! (no promises though! lol)

Thanks for checking out my little neck of the web!
