When considering challenge ideas for the year, I didn't want to go the obvious direction where January was concerned. I didn't want to do goals or resolutions. Instead I decided to go the other way and reflect on what was good about 2015.
This ended up being a fun but challenging project for me. It was fun looking back through the year and selecting what were my favorite moments. It was hard - specifically when choosing photos to represent my two trips - narrowing the photos down to only a few. There were so many great memories to choose from. I also tend to avoid using photos of myself and I couldn't do that here. This is something I want to work harder at in 2016.
This year I went with the following from left to right then top to bottom as my best moments.
My trip to Las Vegas with Gina in May.
My trip to Disney with Gina in July.
The spinning retreat I attended in Destin in January. (I go again in just 2 weeks!)
The birth of my niece, Selah in July.
My other new niece, Kaydence, turning one also in July.
Having the entire family together at the church where we all grew up in October.
I used a collection of various digital products. I just knew when I started I wanted the background to be black and white. I've lowered the opacity to make it less harsh. I meant to use a bunch of different kinds of frames but using the multiple images from my trips sent me looking for photo strips and I ended up using 3.
So challenge #1 for January is done for me. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do for my cut challenge but I need to get on it.
Until next time!
