New Planner Ideas

Today, there's a special event happening on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  It's all about NEW Year, New Planner Ideas!

My 2020 word of the year is GRATITUDE.  What a great word!  My  plan is to do a page per week of someone, somewhere or something for which I'm grateful.  If I'm having a sad day, I can use my gratitude planner to remind myself of good things :)  Here is my contribution to the ECD blog.  It's my January dashboard page:


Isn't it pretty!? (Even if I do say so myself!)  The paper is from an older Graphic 45 Collection.  Here's a close up of that amazing tag and the fun new letters from Elizabeth Craft Designs:
