LOAD Day One

It's finally here - the layout a day portion of The Mother LOAD workshop! I actually combined the Day 1 LOAD prompt (scrapbook a goal or an aspiration) with this week's Library of Memories Community challenge (create a layout about you - something other people say when they pay you a compliment).

Journaling reads: If you asked someone to describe me, they would probably say, "she has long blond hair and she's very organized." I stay organized daily, weekly, & monthly by making lists and setting goals.

This is actually an interactive layout because I've listed four goals that I want to concentrate on this month. I will display it on my desk and check off my progress at the end of each day. So, the layout will actually be completed on the 30th of this month and I'll have a record of how well (or not) I did on my focus goals for this month.


BTW - I am so excited the LOM Community is up and running today (it was basically inactive during the Finding Photo Freedom workshop). The weekly challenges started again today and the message board has already been active this morning. If you signed up last year, you don't have to register again - just log in to your BPC account to access the class. If you didn't join up last year or have just completed the Finding Photo Freedom workshop, click here to hurry over and get registered so you don't miss any of the LOM Community support!

love the goals list and the grid for checking off what you've done! Think I may lift this idea for my layout for tomorrow... since today was totally off the grid with what I scrapped!

What a great way to check off your accomplishments! I just love check-off lists.

Like your goals and the space for ticking them off - very motivating! and hard to ignore, visually, if one does't do it.

Linda said...

What a fabulous idea! I set goals every month too, and I sometimes do a checklist in excell, but your LO is a much prettier way to track progress!

Amy said...

I like lists too!
Good luck with LOAD Melissa, you are going to have a busy month with both projects and I am sure several others on the go!

Wonderful layout! Good luck with the LOAD class. I'm hoping to work on the first two layouts today. See you on the LOM Community (I need to go sign up now).

Very cool interactive page. Way to start off your LOAD! :)

Sandra said...

Don't forget to add "highly creative and talented" to that description of you

I love the way you've set out the goals....so easy to keep a check on. I'm a real list person as well.

Love the way you combined the challenges on an interactive layout! Between LOAD and checking the LOM boards, I should have plenty of scrapping inspiration on September!

Ginger said...
