My One Little Word for 2010 is Persevere.
My "hope" for 2010 is to be able to have faith in my word and believe in it as whole heartedly as I did my word for last year which was gratitude! I have chosen an owl to represent my word.
Owls are wise and strong and that is what I think of when I hear the word persevere. Read more about my word here.I created this layout for 2 challenges. 1st- Scrap That Poetry
The poem for challenge #7 is Hope by Emily Dickenson.
Journaling reads: I hope to persevere during 2010 through all my obstacles! OLW
The next challenge that I created this for was Mission Create. I used their 5 concepts as the bones behind the layout.
1- Masking
2- Red
3- grid or ledger paper
4- strip journaling
5- stamping
I chose to use all 5 concepts in my layout!

The next layout I created is also for my OLW, as I plan to do a few to keep myself motivated this year!! I created this one using Sketchy Thursday's 12.31 sketch (which is one of my absolute favs and plan on using over and over).
Happy New Year!!!
