I gave each of my people a strip of Whisper White Cardstock and a Journaling Pen and asked them to write their name, age and a word to describe the plans they have for 2012. The discussion that followed was fun, too. I love the thoughtfulness and different approach that everyone had. What a reflection of each of their personalities! So this page is a quick moment of time where each of us is looking ahead and making plans for what we see for ourselves in 2012. I think the banners are a little stark on this page, but I wanted everyone's personal writing captured, too.
My oldest son is a sophomore in high school and really thinking about college and grades and baseball. It's also finals week, so he's really thinking about school and plans for college. My daughter also had finals this week, but she's more relaxed and is really looking forward to the rest of high school. My youngest son takes a short view and is in the middle of basketball season, so he wants to spend more time shooting baskets. My husband and I are past those worries and now think about living well, living happy and being healthy. He was pretty happy with his play on words :) Health=Wealth
For my layout, I used the awesome SA67 Sketch Challenge for this month. The title THIS YEAR is Black Craft ink embossed in Clear Embossing Powder using Spencerian Alphabet Upper and Spencerian Alphabet Lower. The 2012 at the top is die cute using the Timeless Type Alphabet Sizzlits. The ball embellishment and stamped crystals are from My Friend stamp set, one embossed in Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and the others covered in Crystal Effects.
