New Year's Challenge AKA Challenge #5


Brought to you by Tracy King....


I have a secret! Shhh! I am a compulsive list maker. Its true. I even make lists of lists I need to make! Lol. This week I challenge you to step inside my obsession and make a list of lists too. I am focusing on a “year in review” kind of thing because I like to reflect on what has happened during the year. It gives me an opportunity to count my blessings and document what I like and who I am right now. Feel free to do the same or come up with your own list of lists. Maybe a list of things you’d like to do this year, places you’d like to go, things you are going to buy, etc… Perhaps you’d like to do a list of favorites: favorite colors, favorite songs, favorite desserts, etc…

This challenge would be a great opportunity to try scrapping without pictures if you have never created a page like that. Be creative! Don’t obsess about what to write. Lists are supposed to be quick, bullets of information. I hope you have a great time!!!

Here is a list of ideas to get you thinking about lists you can create about the year 2007: (LOL! See? What did I tell you? Another list!)
-books you’ve read
-music you have purchased
-new recipes you have tried
-places you have traveled
-people you have met
-goals you have met
-new restaurants you have tried
-funny quotes from your kids
-new addictions
-pet peeves
-favorite anythings: books, colors, snacks, tv shows, shoes, phrases, hobbies, etc…
-life changes (new job, school, house, etc…)
-funny things
-things you’ll never do again
-things that made you say “hmmmm”
-fashion trends you tried
-happiest moments


Here’s the journaling on my layout. The scan is a little blurry in places due to the bulkiness of the brads.

Tracey, This is such a fun challenge! I'm not much of a list maker, it seems that the time I spend making lists could be better spent doing some of the things 'ON' my lists ... LOL ... but, it's PERFECT for your 'Year In Review' suggestion ... and BRILLIANT for scrapping journaling on a layout! Great page ... great challenge!

Aw thanks! I seriously have an issue with making lists. I got a new book in the mail yesterday called "To-Do List" Its a collection of lists from various people (chefs, teachers, ordinary folks, etc...). Its quite interesting to see what your lists say about you. :-D
