January Blog Hop

New year new ME. As of the 1st I'm officially divorced and single parent to 2 wonderful teenagers. To say that our lives have been turned upside down would be an understatement. Since I/we are starting over I wanted my word of the year to push me so this year my word is EARNEST. It means: Serious in intention, purpose or effort.  I pray I can live up to it between finding a job, a place to call home and being there for my kids. I have a lot to do in very little time.  So since the challenge this month was about a New Year and Beginnings I chose to scrap my son's 16th Birthday. 
        The first one "Life" is simple with very little fuss. I wanted the pictures to tell more of the story of the love and fun my son and mom have together. I used a couple of sayings from the sticker sheet and a Thicker for the title.


        This 2nd layout is even more simple but again it's about the love between my son and our dog.  I just added the Thickers for the title.


Make sure to check out the rest of the talented ladies in the hop.
