One Little Word Blog Hop - May Edition

Hello and Welcome to the One Little Word Blog Hop! If you came here from Amanda's blog, welcome! If you are a regular reader, you already know the drill! ;)  The entire hop goes live at 8:00 a.m. Pacific (11:00 my time) so if you are early, just check back later to catch everyone!

Ali's April prompt for the One Little Word class had us writing a letter to ourselves. Mine is very private and I'm opting not to share that little bit of my book here.

But I do want to share this layout.  The layout design is based on Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love lesson for March. It's a free class over at Two Peas which you can find here.   Papers and elements are all from Studio Miki over at Scrapbookgraphics.

My one little word for 2011 is "happy". I am focusing this year on what it means to be happy, what makes me happy, how mindful I can be about choosing happiness.  This layout documents a day when I deliberately chose happiness.  I blogged about it here and plan to print out the blog post and attach it to the back of this layout.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Rebekah's blog.  And just in case you get lost, here is the entire blog list.

That's a "happy" page alright :)

What a beautiful layout! Thank you for sharing with us. My letter was private this month too, but that's totally OK. Some of this stuff will be! :)

Thank God for creative outlets (cameras, blooming things, and our ability to take long walks outdoors). Sometimes, we have to MAKE our own happiness! You did - congrats!

Love your layout and your choice of words for 2011. I almost didn't share my letter to myself.

Jen said...

Thanks for sharing thie info at 2 peas. Your word is almost becoming my word this year. My "clear" thoughts seem to be helping me find happiness in the present. I know Ali mentioned that some people changed words, but I think "happy" is going to be a wonderful addition to my OLW.
