Inspiration Elevator Reveal...One Little Word


This month, our challenger was the super talented Lisa Spiegel. Lisa lives in California with her family and this month she asks us to think about our growth in 2013. This is what she wrote:

"Create a layout about your One Little Word. You know, the word that we scrappers choose in January upon which to reflect for the year. This word should have special meaning to you and be selected for it's potential to help you reach and grow...the only hard part..you must use a photo of yourself and add journalling to the layout explaining the significance of the word..."

So hard to choose One Little Word...it took me some time, but I finally decided on the word focus. I need to focus on sooo much...me, my family, our new home that we will be moving into in the next few weeks,  and  so much more. I get distracted easily...I never used to...I don't know if it just that I have so much on my mind or if I have ADD!  Yep, so the one little word on the year is focus!
Not really a big fan of the layout I created,  I am never comfortable when using a photo of myself.  I do love the papers I chose and the Silhouette cuts that I added!




I hope you will join the rest of our Inspiration Elevator team to see what word best reflects their plans for change and growth in 2013.

So lovely! I adore this photo of you and the yellows and pinks really make it pop. The diagonal placement is very ingenious and creates a sense of flow through the design. It's stunning Cathy! Stunning!

I love your layout, it is so feminine and pretty. And I find it hysterical that we chose the same word! I know exactly how you feel.... I am hoping my problem is from menopause and that there will be an end in site! lol

I like the arrow and how it brings us in to the focus of your layout. Such an important word. Good luck to you and your family with your move. And it's nice to see you scrapping you!

WOW!!! I think this layout is fantastic!!! I love all the little bits sticking out here and there, and how some things just peek out from others.
