Towards the beginning of the month, I posted about my monthly aspirations for January.  You can read it here.  In this post, I talk about registering for One Little Word presented by Ali Edwards.  Well I have taken the plunge and registered for it!

I had a small list of words that I was contemplating on using for this project but I have narrowed it down and finally picked CREATE.  This word is meaning full to me and has been jumping out at me since October of last year.  Little did I know then that it would be for a reason!  I have downloaded all of the materials, seen the video, and read the handout.  I followed what Ali suggested in that I went through my personal stash of scrapbooking supplies and I did not have an available 8 1/2 x 11 3-ring album.  All of my albums are post and except for one they are all 12 x 12.  This will be my first official 8 1/2 x11 project.  I do have tons of paper however for the color scheme that I am planning, I don’t have enough for this project.  So, I have gone online (I have no local scrapbooking stores that sell these items) and purchased my album, protector sleeves listed in the supply list and some washi tape.  Now I know that I don’t need to buy washi tape for this project, but I have never used it before and I am really excited to try it.  Also, when I went to Target yesterday, I purchased a journal just for my OLW project and a small package of paper that is pink.  I am waiting for my album, protector sheets, and washi tape to arrive in the mail.  I am hoping it is soon!!!  I have already starting writing my thoughts in my OLW journal.
