One Little Word Blog Hop

Wow, another month has been and gone in our One Little Word journey. My word for 2011 is GROW and our prompt for March was to decide on just one little activity and document it, AND DO it.  This was easy for me, as I had already registered for an online class which started in March and was part of my growing and developing, guided by my word.

March Prompts 2

Ali Edwards, our class instructor again provided templates for us to use to record our activity for the month, so the biggest challenge was actually doing the activity, and recognising that we had done it and had allowed our word to influence our life in March.

The template fitted into different size pockets, where the smaller ones are actually double sided and flip over. I am sewing my own pockets for this one, and haven't dug the machine out from the bottom of the linen cupboard yet, so here's a photo showing the reverse side of the smaller cards, without the pockets.

March Prompts

The little GROW button was a gift from my stamping friend Claire Daly who is also on this OLW journey. If you have a chance to check out her blog, her cards are to die for!  Thanks Claire, your little gift arrived the day before I read the March prompts, and I knew straight away I was going to use it in a similar way to Ali's metal edge label on her small cards.

March Prompts 4

I loved how Ali used printed paper with numbers on it - sort of a reminder to be accountable sometime during the month, and as I had some lovely (uncut) Stampin' Up! DSP, I decided I would use numbers too. When I went to punch out this circle, I deliberately lined up the number 4 as it was kind of significant in March for my GROW journey.

So, what was I was doing all month, to increase my creativity and try something new? Another Big Picture Class - i-scrap by Stacy Julian. A fabulous class!

I-scrap pages 011

This is a bit of a random pic of all my photos, ribbons and embellishments for my nine i-scrap layouts. Hopefully over the next few weeks I will finish the journalling and I will post some finished layouts here to share with you too.

Well, that is totally enough from me!  If you haven't done a blog hop before, and are starting here, all you do is click on the next link to Jen's blog by clicking here.  Then at the end of her post, click on the next link. It will eventually take you full circle and back to here, and during the journey, you will be totally inspired by what these strong, talented, motivated women are doing to move forward in their lives.

If you happen to get a bit lost on the journey or some of the links don't work, here's the original list for you to come back to. Have an awesome day and a fabulous weekend (it's already Saturday in Australia!).
