~Monthly Challenge~

2013 A Year to Celebrate Life
Why do we fail @keeping our New Years Resolutions? Because we hate change!!
This year resolve to have a shift in your focus areas. This can be a really short or a really long process depending on what you're working on at the time!
This is a great SMASHbook opportunity! Every day look for something to celebrate.

Make a 2 page LO on shifting your focus to an area of your life that you would like to enhance. We can always choose to make even the good, better!!

Here's a quote to get you started...
"Let us learn to appreciate that there will be times when the trees will be bare and look forward to the times when we may pick the fruit" (unknown) 2500 PTS

Thanks Paula for your Monthly idea!!!

Hi!
I'd love to play. I'm so trying to get back into layout mode and this challenge might help me. I'll keep my goal low though... I think I did in all 6-7 layouts this year, so if I make 5 in January, that is a huge step forward.

Quay - I'm so excited you decided to stay as our valiant moderator! I actually liked some of the changes that were made. I'm so excited that I got my lazy behind into the office where my scrap space is now located and I cleaned and organized the hell out of my stuff! And now I am ready to scrap!!! So upon my return from the beach, I will be back in the scrap-saddle again!

Thanks for the continued motivation!

Thank you!
I should be in it just for testing, since I'm new here and there are a lot to take in. But I like the thought of prizes so I pay paled you earlier today.

And I see my 5 is totally lame... You girls are amazing 20-30 layouts in a month!!!!
