One Little Word 2016 | Shine March and April Catch-up and Check-in!

Hi guys, I decided to divert from my usual Tuesday Project Life videos today so I could spend a little time in my One Little Word project. I am participating in Ali Edwards' One Little Word class this year and have chosen the word Shine. The goal and purpose of the class and of choosing a word for the year is to choose a word that speaks to me and that helps direct and add meaning to my year. Here is a look at my thought processes and album content in response to the prompts for March and April:

So you might remember back in March the prompt was to create a vision board using magazine images. The idea was to simply choose images and colors and texts that speak to you and that reflect your word, simply what you like. For March in my album I chose to include a photo of my vision board, along with a few reflections. I created a divider from this heart transparency that is from Maggie Holmes' Shine collection. The month tab is Studio Calico, and the acrylic word is from Gossamer Blue.

I included this photo on this layout simply because of the way the sun was shining into the car and onto my hair that day. I added a chipboard embellishment that is from Ali Edwards' Cheer Story Kit.

On the back of this month's layout I added a photo from the beach the day my son got hurt. I wrote some of my reflections from that event, particularly how I saw myself for the first time being the calm and focused one. I also painted a wash background and printed this quote from Pinterest.

For the month of April I chose a white stripe transparency from WeRMemory Keepers laying on its side. The prompt for April was to write questions pertaining to your word and process your word and how it evidences itself in your life. I used filler and journaling cards from the Modern Edition Core Kit to copy my notes down, and then I slid them into the pockets.

The back of this month is several more of my journaling cards and I also realized that the quote card is not the one I originally planned to use, but I think I will keep this one as it is because it still fits.

That is all for this day's inspiration. I hope you have enjoyed hearing some of my One Little Word experiences and how I am working through that word in my life! See you back here tomorrow for Disney!
