Tim Holtz picked up on an Ali Edwards challenge for the new year and asked all who read his blog to pick a word for 2008. One that we would remember to use or put to use every day. My word was "laugh" because sometimes I forget to laugh. I have tried every day this year to laugh. I was at Bed, Bath and Beyond wandering around one day. Actually looking for frames I could alter. Didn't find any frames, but I did find the word laugh. It was painted basic black and I thought I could do better than that, and since it was on sale, I got it. I finally decided that I'd best get it altered and put it up on my shelves so I could see it every day as my reminder to laugh. Since it was already painted black, I figured I'd just go ahead and use Silhoutte papers with it. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I used 5 of the 6 B&T papers, CTMH and non-CTMH ribbon, Just Blooms paper flowers which I painted with Pearl Paint and black reinker. I'm not real happy with the way they turned out. The black has a purple-ish tint to it. But it'll do!

OMG I love this! I have one of those that says memories in my SB room. Maybe I should alter it.... I think my word for the year is going to be JOY. Funny how important these things are, and how a little reminder can make all of the difference.

Sue, it looks fabulous online! And what a great idea to pick a word for the year. I have a favorite author who does that, too.
