One Little Word - Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to "One Little Word - Blog Hop"  if this is your first stop, you should visit Margie's blog because the fun starts there!

I'm so exited to be participating in this blog hop, and more exited for taking this class with Ali Edwards over at Big Pictures ClassesIt will be an amazing year working and creating around a special word.

My word of choice is:


When I decided to take the class, I didn't have to think much about which word I would use.
I'm always complaining about not having enough time. The fact is that I DO HAVE TIME, I just don't how to use it wisely, and I  was getting to the point that I didn't care enough and it was more easy to say "I don't have time"

Every day I'm working on it, and so far,  I've made some progress .
I'm also exited that I can document it on a scrapbook.  I can't wait to see where this journey called "One Little Word" takes me... I'm very happy to be part of it.

Here are the first projects we've made, the title page  with a recent picture on the back and the first page which is "about establishing a baseline with [our] word"Ali Edwards

I love butterflies and  I may use them throughout the year. Don't you think these -Game Spinners- from Tim Holtz look very pretty?

I hesitated when Ali suggested to use our own handwriting,  but I'm kind of glad I did it.

So, this is January's promp. Today,  February 1st.  we get a new one... yay! :)

You are almost there, just one more stop to finish the hop, please visit Amanda's blog!

As a thank you for your visit,  I'm having a Give Away, just leave a comment telling me your "word" , if you are taking the class,  and your favorite kind of embellishments.  I randomly select a winner this Friday and post the winner here and in the class message board.

Thank You for stopping By!!!

I am glad you chose to use your handwriting too. It's lovely to have that to look back on.

I love the way you made the butterfly look like clock hands. so clever! My word for 2011 is Present. As for embellishments I love flowers, buttons, really anything 3D. Thanks for the giveaway and for sharing your word!

Cassie_lu said...

Maureen said...

Oh using time wisely is often so hard for me too.

Your pages are so cheery...happy butterflies!

I love how you used the clock hands on the butterfly. Beautiful work!


Looks great!! Fabulous word.
I joined the hop late, but you can see my january prompts here.


My word is "light", yes, I'm in the class and I love to embellish with glitter!!! I hope you have a great day.

April said...

love all the butterflies! Definitely keep using them. Very lucky word to have with all of the time-oriented embellishments that are out there. Should be a fun year for projects for you! I'm also in class (and on the blog hop with you). My word is nurture and my favorite embellishment right now are journaling spots. I seem to use them everywhere! Enjoy your journey in 2011 with your word.

Donna said...

LOVE the colors you've chosen, and what a great word!!!!! Have fun along the way!!

My word for 2011 is healthy. I am indeed taking Ali's class ... love it! I'm a digi scrapper and I love to add staples to my pages.

Abbey said...

I so like the butterfly + spinner idea on the front page. Perfect for your word and beautiful too! I'm in your class and the blog hop. My word is Savor and I, as you can tell, love butterflies of all kinds!

MarleneMAZ said...

Love your word choice and your pages are very pretty. Love the game spinners on your butterfly too. I am also taking the class and my word is "be". I definitely love using all of Tim Holtz Ideology embellishments.

Heather said...

Love the game spinner on your title page! I never would have thought to use one there but it looks fab! My word for 2011 is "faith" and my favorite embellishments are butterflies. See you at BPC! :)

Rebekah said...

I love your word and how you incorporated just the right kinds of embellishments to highlight it in your pages! Lovely!

I love embellies...any kind! I just bought some of Tim Holtz' to try out...they look fabulous!

Cheri said...

Have to say I LOVE your cover - I adore anything with butterflies and using the spinners like clock hands on the butterfly was truly inspired! I hope you find many ways to make time work in your favor this year.

My OLW is "Happy"

Has empezado muy bien, te ha quedado muy bonito tu trabajo!Tube ganas de meterme en este proyecto, pero avalie que no tengo tiempo, jajajaja. Tengo muchos compromisos ya. Y mi palabra para este año es Foco. Necesito priorizar lo mas importante.
Tu letra es bonita, debes de usarla mas .
Besitos y bendiciones.

Jan said...

Your pages are so pretty - especially love the opening page with the butterfly. I considered the word "time" as well (but went with "focus") because I seem to have a similar issue with time management. I'm hoping to have a better sense of focus this year. Two different words to get to the same goal, really. Good luck on your journey! :)

The Gutsy Mom said...

Your handwriting is beautiful! Your pages are lovely -- the butterfly is my favorite embellishment of all time (use one on almost everything I do). I agree the Tim Holtz spinner looks fab with the butterfly. See you in class!

I love that butter fly and those colors are beautiful. I totally relate to not using my time wisely. I am trying to make similar changes and use the time I do have more efficiently. Thanks for inspiring me! And thanks for participating in the blog hop!

I love butterflies too! There's something about just watching them flutter around that's just so soothing. You have made a great start to this OLW journey and I look forward to seeing your journey with time progress.
