New Year, New Goals

So who set goals for 2011? I usually think about them and at times in the past I have scrapped them. I will admit however, that I might not have written them down this year if I had not had this as an assignment for Bo Bunny. The past few months have been busy and with focusing on settling into our new home, new town and new job this was kind of one of things that had gone to the back of my mind. I am glad I had this assignment because it allowed me to get these thoughts down and I now want to keep this layout in view as a reminder of things I want to accomplish in the coming year. Some of these are quite personal, but they are what they are!
And I have chosen a "word" for this year....HAPPINESS. This is something I want to focus on this year in a very different way than I have in the past.
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny Winter Joy Snow Fall, Winter Joy Stripe, Winter Joy Snow Angels, Winter Joy Bundled
Journaling Cards: Bo Bunny Noteworthy Winter Joy
Chipboard: Bo Bunny Chunky Chips Alphabet in Chiffon
Cardstock: Bo Bunny Double Dot in Tutu Dot
Die Cut Machine: Cricut Expression and Gypsy
Cartridges: Martha Stewart All Occasion Cake Art

I have a little Gypsy action going on here and I thought I would share the files with those of you who are interested.

I had a lot of fun creating the butterfly "chains" with my sewing machine! All I did was run them through my machine and left a few stitches between each one to create the chain. I then attached them to my layout in a kind of flowing motion to mimic them flying around!

Just a quick reminder before I go, there is a Bo Bunny Blog hop going on right now. I am not a part of it this week, but it started on January 5 and will be continuing until January 12. Stop by the Bo Bunny blog to get started. This is the first of a series of Bo Bunny Blog Hops that will be going on all this month!

Happy Hugs and Happy New Year!
