Challenge #12

New year -- God has blessed us with yet another year to realize our dreams, our hopes, our aspirations. My bucket list changes every year. Some dreams I've already realized, some are still a work in progress, some I'm still praying for.

"And the LORD answered me, and said,
Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth  it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
Habakkuk 2:2-3

So the challenge is to scrap about a dream. It can be one you've already realized like finally traveling to that one place you've always dreamed about going. It can be a work in progress like maybe saving up for a new house or a dream vacation. Or it can be one you're still waiting for. Whatever it may be we encourage you this month to ponder upon it and scrap it!

Scrap twist: Use the word "dream" on your project. You can use it on the title or the background but it has to be visible on your project ;)

Kline: This is a photo of me as a child. I tucked away my goals for 2012 inside the mini folder behind the photo since some were a little too personal to show. I have a ton of goals this year and they're grouped into "Family", "Career" and "Me".
Wendy: My layout is about some of the personal dreams/goals/wishes I have for me this year. Some will take discipline, some will take effort and all will take prayer!
Roulien: I made a layout but included a booklet with my dreams that were accomplished during 2011. Putting them down on paper made me realize just how blessed I am!

Sherri: Ever since discovering Sharon's sweet little scrapbook store just outside the city, it has been a dream of Sherri's to work for her at The Scrapbook Cottage.  Little did she know that within 2 years her dream would come true when Sharon opened a second store in the city, and offered her a position as a 'Cottage Girl'.

Lisa: I created a layout about the dreams I for my son and how God is helping fulfill them.

  1. Tickled to be this month's sponsor and can't wait to be inspired by all the wonderful layouts to be linked up !

  2. This was a good one for me....I finally got started on my pregnancy journal for our baby on the way! The second picture is the dream pages - it is mostly journaling, it talks about how nervous we were about losing another baby, so we just waited to tell people and dreamed about the future we had hoped for.

  3. Val - yours doesn't pop up when I select your name...

  4. I hope that I can find the time to do this one - I already have the title and the photos in mind! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Valerie... I went to your blog and found it but it isnt linked correctly through inlinkz... I tried to change it but all I could do was completely delete your link... I didnt want to do that so I figured that if you can delete it and repost it that would work best... will write you on your blog too.... Thanks Carrie for pointing it out....

  6. Thanks so much for telling me about that! I think I have it fixed now! :)
