The latest challenge over at One Little Word is "Celebrate!"  

Here's what I came up with:

I mostly used my October Cocoa Daisy Kit, "Aspen Grove" and the patterned paper add-on "Hidden Lakes" to create this layout.  The sun is from an older kit.  But, that dark green paper is from a worn out hanging file folder.  I rescued it from the trash at work, and it just screamed for me to doodle on it with white pen!  The wide striped ribbon came in the kit, and I threaded it through the edge of the file where you would normally put in a plastic tab with the file label in the slots.

"As terrifying as terror is, let us put aside our panic for this one day and...CELEBRATE!"

While it didn't directly relate to my creative process, this song has been stuck in my head for TEN DAYS!!!  Ever since the OLW "word up" came down!  Just thought I'd share.  Lol! If the next word up inspires a song, I hope it is something equally as dear to me as "Wicked"!  :)

(I chose this YouTube video because I think the sketch art is pretty cool, and I couldn't bring myself to promote one of the bootlegged tapings from one of the Broadway performances.)

So, what little things are you celebrating today?  I'd love to hear!


  1. Using the edge of the file folder! Very smart! Hi Lisa, very cute card...love that house with all the different fonts too! Take care!

  2. wow. Lisa I am so glad you decided to play along with this word. I love what you have created. your lettering is awesome.

  3. Hi Lisa! Hope you're doing well! I've been thinking of you often even though I haven't been on Blogger much lately! Love the file folder innovations...I have several of these sitting empty in a file cabinet in my classroom, and often wondered what could be done with them. You've inspired me to take a few home and play with them a bit!

    Hope all is well on your end! I appreciate your support as I've returned to college this fall...so thankful for your friendship!:-)
