52 Week Scrapbook Challenge - Make a page with a "List Journal" on it.

Okay...I love to make lists! The first thing I usually write on my list is "make a list". That way I can start by crossing something off and begin with a sense of accomplishment! lol I didn't do that here, of course! Since I have so many lists, I really wasn't sure where to begin with this challenge. That is until yesterday when I was doing my usual blog rounds. On the Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog there was just the inspiration I needed. If you're not familiar with their magazine or blog,  you really must take a's a definite favorite of mine and it's all Canadian! You can take a look at that post HERE, but don't go there until you've finished this post! :o) So I made my own scrapbooking Bucket List! A list of a number of things that I'm planning on working on in the next while. I even included a few of them on my page! :o)
Papers: Unknown Cardstock & Printed Paper;
Punches: Fiskars Flower Punch,
Martha Stewart 3 Dot Punch Around the Page
MM Slice Design Card: Basics 1 & 3;
Stamp: Stampin' Up - Notes & Details;
 Ink: Stampin' Up - Basic Brown;
DMC Embroidery Floss: 839,959;
Template: Crafter's Workshop;
Brads: Unknown.

Hi Nancy(fellow lists maker), I make lists too. Can't manage without them. The colors you combined on this piece are eye catching and I like the embroidery you chose to do.

Making a bucket list for me would probably be useless. I can't get the daily stuff done. LOL Good luck on accomplishing your list of goals Nancy!

This is totally cool!!! Love your colors. The embroidery/stitching is awesome to look at. It really adds "pop" to your page :-)

I think I may have to go find that Martha Stewart punch that you used as the border around your page. Beautiful, simply beautiful.

Now, if I had that as my list, I'd not want to scratch anything off the list because it is too pretty to mar :-)
Love you - Leslie

I'm a listmaker too. I find really it helps me remember the little things that needs to get done. Like getting postage stamps which I'm popping off to do now. Have a great week ahead !

Great page Nancy, did you do all the stitching? Very nice. And I see you mastered the corner punch set. I love your bucket list!! I just posted mine also.

Lovely project Nancy. Super stitching and colour combination. All done wit your usual flair and panache :) Another list maker here! I have had too many nights sleepless worrying about what I have forgotten to do so everything goes on a list and then I can calm down :)

Love and hugs
