One Little Word meets Rhonna Designs

Hello there! Well, I am still alive and kicking, ha!  I just had seemed to fall into a slump and getting my mojo back took some time and I'm still working on it!  I worked this past weekend on some fun things for submission to a Styled Wedding Shoot.  Once I get the photographers photos I will share them with you!

I finally had some time to finish up my first month's homework for Ali Edwards One Little Word. I had put aside a bunch of card stock that I had, which I knew would last me the entire year but...... I couldn't resist using some of Rhonna's art from her "A year to follow your heart" kit.  I simply opened up the base pieces from Ali and then added some pieces from Rhonna's kit.  If you recall I did this same thing for my December Daily, which no I haven't finished that yet, ha!

I printed out the page on some textured Bazzill card stock then inked it with some Tim Holtz distressing inks.  Added a few things I had on hand, I'm trying to do my best to shop my current stash!  I love how the pieces turned out!  I'm hoping to get the protector pages at some point.  I have my LSS ordering them for me as I am being super cheap on shipping charges, ha!  That is another reason that creating Hybrid projects is great! You simply download your files so no shipping charges!

Here is what I created using PSE, Ali's January Files and Rhonna's Kit found HERE

Please note the file below is in a lower resolution as it is not a file to be shared. I'm merely sharing my process with you.
And once printed and trimmed to size I created the pieces shown in the collage below. Getting over the fact that I don't have beautiful girly handwritting is always hard but Ali encourages you to use your own handwritting. I even messed up a few spots on my journaling cards but just went with it. I have to continue to remind myself that this is for me and it doesn't have to be perfect or as beautiful as some of those shared by others.
Talk about easy, quick and fun! It didn't take me any time at all and so I plan on completing February's this week too!  Are you participating in One Little Word? If not click on the button on my right side bar to see more info via Ali's blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. I will finally have a couple of Valentine items posted later this week!
