A New Adventure for 2012 and a FREE Template

A designer friend of mine, who retired from designing, pointed me to this blog, 365 Less Things.  This is a decluttering challenge with the idea of getting rid of one item per day through the year.  So, I've decided to take the challenge as my 365 project for 2012!  And I thought I would share with you what I've done so far.  This is only my 2nd day, but I think I've made up for the first 5 days that I missed, since the object is to do ONE item a day so as not to get overwhelmed with the project.  These items were in the same general area, so it was not overwhelming to get rid of more than one item at a time!

I used my "A Fresh Start" kit and bits and pieces from the add-on and sampler.  The kit is 20% off through January and the sampler is free and the add-on can be had for free through January, too (see store for details).

So, what do you think?  Are you interested in taking the challenge with me?  The layouts are linked to my gallery at Digitals if you would like to leave me some luv!  Thanks in advance!


I was in the mood to make a template out of my first page shown here, so I thought I would whip it up and include it in this post.  It will be available for approximately a week, maybe more maybe less.  It depends on when I remember to unlink it, LOL!

In the download, you will find the PNG files, the JPG file and the PSD file.  Hope you enjoy it!  Click on the preview for the direct download.

Thanks for stopping by Today!  Scrap those memories before they fade away!
