{Every day Joy...}

This is my take on challenge 106 over at CSI.
This year I do not have a New Year’s Resolution. I decided to choose a word to focus on this year.  My power word is JOY.  There are so many big and small things that steal our joy daily, but I am going to do my utmost best to choose joy every day as my quote says. 

This is how I solved the case :

The scheme : I used all the colours

Evidence :

arrows

gold

numbers

circles

stripes

white background

 

Testimony :  About a New Year's Resolution on the back of my layout and reads as follows :

I say it every year, but I can hardly believe how quickly 2013 have flown by. It has been a rough one for me in more ways than one and I can’t say I am sorry to see it go.  I have high hopes for 2014 though.

This is the first year I have chosen a word to claim as my focal point for the year.  As I have been praying about what word to use for 2014, several popped into my head over the last few weeks.  The word JOY is the single word that stuck out above all. Therefore, for the year 2014, I have chosen to focus on the word JOY. A kind of JOY that manifests down in the depths of my heart...and leaves me in awe every day...

I prefer to find JOY in the small things as well as bigger. I want to find JOY in every experience of life. I want to seek JOY in the people that surround me.  I choose to be JOYful that I have so many blessings.  Even in the darkness, there is light, and having JOY will show me that light and amplify it. Only a three letter word, but for me a very big challenge.

JOY can be constant if you choose it...

{Silent Night...}

This is my take on Case File # 103 over at CSI.
This is such a peaceful photo of my daughter, and perfect for the title of this layout.  May angels always watch over her and guide her the way….Christmas layouts are my  favourites.   Christmas is a magical holiday season that brings with it joy, love and heart-warming moments.   This will be my last layout for 2013  and I wish you a God blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This is how I solved the case :

The scheme : I used all the colours

Evidence :

Stars

Circles

Distressing

Paint

Wood

Twiggy accent

 

Testimony :

I used the prompt : My favourite Christmas song. My journaling is on the back of my layout and reads as follows : It’s hard to nail down a single Christmas  carol as my favourite.  There are so many wonderful songs.  Silent Night  is my favourite carol and a familiar song from my childhood and one of the first songs I learned to play on the piano when I was a little girl. A song that really reaches my heart when I hear it.  This is also the one Christmas carol that never ceases to make me teary.  I think Silent Night is the most famous Christmas carol of all time!
