This is so exciting Alexa! I don't know how I missed the point of your original post early in the year (I'm sure I read it, just didn't click over to the links, silly me). I only stumbled on DLP in May and fell absolutely in LOVE with the concept! I'm already thinking about next year and doing something NOT in a moleskine journal. I don't think it would be all that difficult to add my own calendar pages. Will just have to see where it goes... So now I'm hoping that you'll post lots more pictures of yours as you go along (I enjoy the inspiration) and can't wait to see how the top binding idea works out for you. Way to go!
What a gorgeous shot. The little balls look like confetti sprinkled across the flowers. We have had a lot of rain lately. I keep reminding myself "April showers bring May flowers" and I can hardly wait for Spring!
I love how you layered the tiny bits of patterned paper for the date and journaling! And LOVE that camera stamp!!! Great layout - I can see this class truly suits you well.

Love the way you pulled inspiration from the book! I'm marking some of these to copy the ideas... suddenly feeling a strong urge to create cards!!

Thanks for the info Kayla! Have passed it on to DH, who I know was considering a new one for our photo storage.
How fun that you can share your exercise goals with your son! Good luck on your challenge.

Your self-portraits are so beautiful. Your album is really coming along great! It is going to be wonderful at the end of the year to see how you have embraced yourself!

Awesome post! I know I have issues with focusing on one thing at a time as well - I'm easily tempted by new classes and challenges before finishing old ones. Good for you for sticking to a plan last month!
Love what you did with the center photo!
I have a folder in Outlook titled "Warm Fuzzies" where I drop emails that fit the encouragement box criteria. But I often forget it is there. Now you have me thinking that something more tangible might be more usefull!

Focus was almost my word for this year - until Happy picked me. I hope you fully enjoy this year of focus - love all the work you did with the prompt cards!
Kudos to Chloe for her generous contribution! And that new style is adorable.

You are definitely a little further along than we are - leaves are still shedding here. But that could change in a day!
Seems to me you just got home from California! You don't sit still long do you???

Wowser Karen - that's a lot of tiny pieces to put together! Gorgeous card - hope MIL is able to recover quickly and without incident.

How long have you been under construction Alexa? I know it's been the entire time I've been following your blog, but just curious. Our six week project actually took a full four months. But that was three years ago and I'm definitely happy to not have a crew here! Layout is gorgeous & so is the youngster!

Great adaptation on the challenge Karen - your version is so serene.

Oh Alexa! I love it - being the aspiring minimalist that I am. I only WISH my workdesk could look that clean and uncluttered!

I couldn't have worded it better in what I wish for as I age - grace, patience, kindness, love, humor, good health... yeah, I want it all! I wish for you that you get it all as well. I am curious why you know you are about to be overwhelmed creatively?

these are fantastic choices Sharyn! I'm still undecided what I'm going to do and feeling stressed. Welcome to JYC - you'll LOVE it!

I have a similar pile to attend to myself... but where am I... buried in my Google Reader!

Hey Sharyn! Part of the fun for me is sharing what I am doing with other people taking the same class. A LOT of my bloggy friends do the Journal Your Christmas class with Shimelle - and like you said, you only pay that fee once - this will be my third year participating in that one. I will also be enrolling in Picture the Holidays. I've found Tracey's prompts to be great at getting me to see my world in new and different ways and am really looking forward to seeing what she has to offer, especially since I've already done a lot of Shimelle's prompts. Both of my previous albums incorporate ideas from at least three different ongoing classes, including some of Ali's design ideas. So tell your practical side to hush up and allow your creative side to join in the fun and camraderie!
