One Little Word

This is a long post...hope you don't mind:)  I found this challenge from Ali Edwards blog and really liked the idea of thinking of one little word.  As I thought over my past year I kept coming to "Change".  So I decided to make a little album with all the changes that took place in 2010.  I also found this wonderful poem as I was looking on line and loved it, so I included it as well.
 I used scraps of chipboard that I had and cut it to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and covered it with some retired SU paper.  I used the Corner Chomper and sponged all the edges with River Rock or Rose Red and used the Bind it All machine to punch all my holes.  Then for the cover I used my Music Label and Music Background to start with.

 I used a lot of odds and ends that I had made previously and just stuck in my drawer.

 I realized that I didn't take one good picture of my oldest daughter in 2010...I need to do better in 2011.

Here is the poem that I followed throughout the book.

The adventure of life is to learn.
The purpose of life is to grow.
The nature of life is to change.
The challenge of life is to overcome.
The essence of life is to care.
The opportunity of life is to serve.
The secret of life is to dare.
The spice of life is to befriend.
The beauty of life is to give.
The joy of life is to love.
William Arthur Ward

Hope you enjoyed a look at my Little Word:)
Happy Stamping,
