It was my turn to choose a challenge this time around, and I had one in mind for a few months that I thought would be perfect for our little group.
When I first stumbled upon Elsie's blog, I didn't know she was the creator of Love, Elsie designs. But I quickly figured it out. Some time ago she participated in a challenge involving goals. A number of goals, in fact. To see her original post, click here.
The challenge was to create some goals you'd like to accomplish in a short period of time, that is, by your next birthday. So, for me, this would be 25 goals to meet before I turn 26 (on May 18). Not much time left, I know. But these goals are possible to accomplish, and those I don't get done by my birthday will hopefully be finished by 2009.
I used up some of the supplies I got in my August 07 Scrapologie kit for this one (and, didn't realize until just now that I used mostly Love, Elsie papers!).
I have a whole box of glitter chipboard I haven't even cracked the surface of yet, so I used some numbers from that box. The word "things" is Making Memories. The blue, circle, and green arrow papers are all Love, Elsie. i can't recall who makes the brown floral. I rubber stamped "to do before I turn twenty-six" and hand wrote all my goals around the page. Some are numbered, some aren't. I could only count 24, but I went back through the list I have on paper and recounted. There's 25, just don't know how I missed one on the page!
Here's my list of goals. I'll put a star by what I've already accomplished.
