Here we go again!   There is nothing I love more than a beginning.  A beginning of a school year, calendar year, vacation, book, class; beginnings hold promise and hope.  This particular beginning holds the hope that I will succeed in a second year of scrapbooking my life one month at a time!

Last year each month I gave a little run down of holidays; this year we’ll use some interesting facts about the month to inspire some photos.  I’ve also included a little note card on the bottom of the pdf you can easily use as a journaling spot for the month.  Here’s January’s By the Numbers sheet:

Here’s my title page for 2011. I also used it as a space to share my one little word for 2011.

Journaling Reads: Every year Ali Edwards picks one little word to guide her in her year. Is it a resolution? Yes, but more, it’s a focus. This year I am chosing the word One. For me, it means to focus on being one with myself, one with my family and one with my life. It will remind me to say things one time, to do one good thing every day and to always remember that every walk in life begins with one step.
