OLW Blog Hop: January Wrap-Up

Welcome to the February 1
One Little Word Blog Hop.

The blog hop is designed for alumni and members of the Ali Edwards' class at Big Picture Scrapbooking to show off their progress in this year's class or just showcase what they are learning about their word for 2012.

My word for 2012 is Rest. 
Here's my completed January assignment.

I'm still trying to embrace my word - which is hard, since I'm neck-deep in several big projects at work (church). 

I'm really enjoying the class because it's making me stop and focus on my word. Which means I turn off the world (and work) and really reflect on things. 

So in a way, the class is making me "rest" in my word.

For that, I'm grateful.

  3. First off, I have to say that I love your blog design! Love the nostalgic look! And your collage is super! Nice job!

    1. Thank you! This collab from is one of my all-time favorites. It's an "oldie but a goodie" at their

      Thanks for your comments on my collage. I appreciate the encouragement!

  4. I considered going all digital and like you am finding the class helps me focus on my word which I need due work as well. Love the way you've done the individual cards too, nice edges.

    1. Thanks for your encouragement! What word are you focusing on?

      Thanks for stopping by.

  5. What a great word!! Your digital page is fabulous! Enjoy the rest along the way in your journey!

    1. Hi Rebeckah! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your encouragement. I'm really enjoying the word and the class - it's giving me a new focus!

  6. Kaylea you have such a great word and I imagine it is going to be challenge - worthwhile in the long run for sure. Love your pages; they look great! And I love your blog.

    1. Hi Cynthia
      Thanks for your encouragement for both my page and my blog. one of my goals this year is to find a new focus for my blog - which means I need to "rest" in order to enjoy it.

      I'm sure the word will be a challenge - but that's kind of why it "chose" me! Because I have something to learn!

  7. Great representation of the word rest. I really like how you did the cards, too. Your pages look restful.

    1. Thanks Donna - I appreciate your encouragement. It was a fun page to build!

  8. i just love the happy color scheme of your pages (and your blog i might add). looking forward to seeing more this year with OLW!

    1. Thanks Kelly. I'm really enjoying the class. This is one of my favorite blog designs I've made - which is probably why I haven't changed it in quite a while!

      I appreciate the encouragement!

  9. Lovely page! I really like the fonts and how it all flows. Looking forward to seeing more of your word on the hop next month.

    1. Thank you Lisa. Your encouragement is appreciated...hoping to have time this weekend to hop

  10. love what you did month, kaylea! your word is a balm to my busy, overworked soul and you've represented it beautifully. xoxo

    1. Thank you. It's been a long week, and I can understand the feeling of overwork....may you find rest and encouragement this weekend!

  11. Great word - and I see that already it's showing you different sides of itself. Blessings on your rest-full journey!

    1. Jan - Yep... It's amazing at what I'm learning - I don't rest well (which is why I just woke up from a 15 hr nap/sleep - I just crashed after a long month at work!)

      Thanks for your encouragement. I appreciate it and thanks for coming by.
