The Daily Grind

Good Morning you all :) Well I guess it was about time I create this year's goals layout :) This was a layout made during Calvinball, but it was created for over at Paper Issues for their crop weekend last month for their selfie challenge. Speaking of Calvinball I had a fantastic time playing along I made #15 in the overall count board for the month and create 31 different crafty projects over the month.
I do goals each year and this time decided to do it with a scrapbook layout :) Maybe a yearly layout for my All About Me album will be taking place. I used my Camera Crazy kit, last month's counterfeit kit, for the layout. After hearing what the theme will be for May LOAD over at Scrap Happy I thought best to save the rest of the Simple Story collections: Daily Grind and 24/7 for that LOAD. But I did get a few layouts made from the collections, this being one of them.
I used the sketch over at The Memory Nest for my layout inspiration Make it Monday No. 56

I really like the layers of this sketch and was able to use a PL card for the 4X4 photo spot.
 The selfie of me was taken Jan 1 of this year, I try to reflect on the past year and think of what I accomplish and then list what I want to accomplish in the year ahead. This is that list.
 I got an Easy title for my layout from the Daily Grind sticker sheet and just loved this 6X12 paper that was in the collection for the Date spot and some fun phrases too.
As my favorite color is purple besides gold I knew I had to add just a bit to the layout and was able to accomplish that with the doily for the peeking layer that was on the sketch. This was one of the quickest layouts I've done in along time and I let the words on the papers be the embellishing of the layout.
Thank you for stopping by today and seeing the view from my little corner of the world


  1. Tina I love that you created a layout for your goals this year! And yes, purple goes with's my favorite too :)

  2. Another fun layout Tina! I so love your "selfie" and I love that you listed your goals for 2016. That is something I'm not good at. I don't set goals for myself. But maybe it is something I should do?? Love the papers you chose, especially love the title and yes, I think you should do a layout each year about you! Love that you snuck in your favorite color too, it looks really good with the papers. Hugs, Brenda

  3. Great choice of subject for your page - I like to do a similar thing at the beginning of each year. Love your combo of papers and the title is perfect. Thanks for joining in at The Memory Nest.

  4. What a great picture of you and fabulous take on the sketch!! LOVE all your details!! Thanks for playing along with tMN!!
