January 2021 - Challenge #1 - List It!

Welcome to our first challenge here in January! 
It's great to see you here.

First of all, a reminder of our January inspiration kit from the Not Just For Boys kit club. 

Not Just For Boys kit club - Flurries Deluxe Theme kit

from Carta Bella Let It Snow 3x4 Journaling Cards paper


One of the papers in the inspiration kit features a pocket page card with a list of fun winter activities. Which got me thinking that in January some of us make lists for the new year with resolutions, goals and/or plans for the year. 

So... Let's get listing & feature some sort of list on your page.

How did our Guest Designer Tamara and our Master Forgers interpret the prompt?

Guest Designer Tamara told me: 
"I started this off with the list and running goals came to mind immediately, but I also wanted to include some then and now content. The first photo shows my first ever run, the second was taken after my last run in 2020, which was also the first one I actually liked. I also wanted to use something from every part of my kit. (And the Tolkien quote seemed to somehow make sense too.)"

Master Forger Tara chose to create a layout based upon her youngest daughter's Christmas List from 2012. It holds some cute little memories from that December that she wanted to keep in her 2012 Family Albums!  

Master Forger Leslie, with the help of a sketch, starts out the new year with positive goals.

Master Forger Cindy also used a sketch for her layout about the first year of Baby Proofing the house.
