Create...

Hello Friends!  It's challenge time for the regular visitors of Get Picky.  And this inspiration challenge has you looking forward into 2012.  A New Year's resolution if you like.  Nikki and Tanya provided an extraordinarily, beautiful poem by Sandra Sturtz Hauss for you to glean some inspiration from and I've chosen one of the verses to help me create this layout...

{family}
journaling: May a kind word, a reassuring touch, a warm smile be yours
Every day of your life,
And may you give these gifts as well as receive them.


My happiest achievement last year was capturing a family-of-six photo every month.  And no, they are not all good shots.  In fact most of the ones of me are down-right horrible... But I am still thrilled that I forced encouraged my little family to stand still for one moment, for just once a month, to capture a family portrait.

This is something I really want to continue into 2012.


This idea was challenged every single month... mostly by my husband ( 'cause the kids are used to having a camera pointed at them! LOL!!) And I know that I will see opposition to it again in 2012.  But I'll persevere and see where it takes me.

So... What is you New Year's resolution?  If you dare to scrap it, don't forget to share a link to your creation over at Get Picky.  Thanks for visiting...x

Well done? I think we got maybe 2 or 3 photos of the 4 of us together in 2011. Pretty dismal. Will have to try better than year.
