One Little Word - February

At Club CK, Yolanda is hosting a monthly challenge for those of us who chose a word to guide us in 2012.  February's challenge is to choose one goal related to our OLW and scrap about it.

My word is PEACE and I feel I've done a decent job at maintaining it though I still have areas to work on.  This whole balance thing in life is proving to be very difficult!  ;)  One of the ways I plan to achieve peace is to do yoga on a regular basis again.  When I was doing it daily, I felt soooo good.  So this was the topic of my layout for this month.

Digital supplies used:  Sweet Shoppe Designs' 2010 Quarterly Assortment 3,
Julie Billingsley's "How Sweet It Is" (background paper)

I chose these colours because of my yoga block and strap - they're such vibrant colours so I thought I should choose papers and elements to go along with them.  This is definitely not my idea of yoga colours, nor colours that reflect peace, so I'm not 100% convinced that I like it.  I would have rather used zen-like colours and make my layout have a more natural feel but that just wouldn't have worked with the photos I had.  That's OK, though, I need to push myself to move out of my comfort zone every once in a while.

Wow those are bright colors :) I know how you feel about bright colors ... I struggle with it too. i think it turned out awesome thought because you backed it with a white paper to tone it down some and I love how you carried the color into your journalling too! Good luck with your daily yoga! That's something I should try doing too :)
