My One Word for 2013

Last year my one word was Trust.  While I do feel I grew in trust, I also feel like I fizzled out as the year progressed. So this year I have signed up for Ali’s One Word class to hold me accountable.  There are monthly prompts and check-ins along with a gallery and message board. I’m hoping these “extras” will help me and keep me motivated as the year happens.

My word for the year is rejoice. It came to me during Christmas Eve service. Up to this point I hadn’t thought much about participating in the One Word challenge or what word. I wasn’t thinking about scrapbooking or anything beyond celebrating Christ’s birth, but it happened.

A recent conversation between my husband and daughter about celebrating her successes and achievements along the way even though she hasn’t quite reached her goal yet.  My husband is always telling me to enjoy the journey.  So this is one area I want to work on. I’ve also included other ways to rejoice.

Here is my first layout. I decided to go with the We R Memory Keepers 8 1/2 x 11 album and 9 pocket inserts.  I’m primarily using banana cross texture and various scraps from the Praise Today collection,
