TN Time With Lisa & Lori January 2022 Challenge

 Hello, hello! Happy Monday to you! I hope that you had a good weekend. We had a nice quiet weekend and I was able to spend some time in my scrap room. I haven't quite gotten back into my scrappy routine yet, so it was good to get in there and get some things done. 

I am so excited that Lisa and I are back with our TN challenge for the new year! This is one of my favorite challenges to do each month. If you don't know what it's all about - here is how it works - this is a just-for-fun monthly challenge that starts on the 10th of each month and ends on the 9th of the following month at midnight CT. If you complete my random challenge for the month - link your TN, bullet journal, or planner spread below. If you complete just Lisa's sketch challenge, link up over on her blog - My Creative Endeavors. If you combine both challenges - be sure to link up on both Lisa's blog and here on my blog.

Here is my challenge for January:

For my challenges this year, I will be challenging you to use a stash item on your spread, and for January that item is enamel dots/shapes.

Here is the fun sketch that Lisa has created for us to use:

And this is what I came up with:

I am back to working in my 2021 52 Favorites TN and this spread is for Week 2. Yeah, I don't have very many spreads made in this TN yet and I thought it was time to show it some love. I also wanted to use some of the Simple Stories Feeling Frosty collection that I had included in my January Stash Bash kit.

I love this photo of Ada throwing a snowball at Abby. Abby snapped the photo at just the right time to see the snowball coming at her - and just look at that smile on Ada's face. Too cute!

Here are a few close-ups:

I stamped my week number using Elle's Studio Mini Days of the Week stamp. This is one of my favorite stamp sets to use in my 52 Week Favorites TN's and in my Project Life albums. It gets a lot of use! 

I am so happy that I made it a point to use washi tape on this spread! I think I need to pull a roll or two out every time I work on a layout and add it somewhere! I always love the look and I really need to get some of it used up!

I love the snowflake die cuts and stickers that are in this Feeling Frosty collection. There's a snowflake stamp just like the die-cut above in the stamp set - which I totally forgot to pull out - so I am sure I will be showing it lots of love when I need a snowflake!

The label is the only thing that was not included in my stash bash kit. 

I love it when I can use stickers from the sticker sheet to make my title - so quick and easy! I added in a few small snowflake stickers around my title. 

One more spread done for 2021! Here's to getting many more done this year!

Even though this is a just-for-fun challenge we do have a few rules:

1. Create a TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK, PLANNER, OR BULLET JOURNAL spread based on the CHALLENGE THEME and/or our sketch. 
2. Create a new, not previously posted project.
3. You are welcome to combine with other challenges.
4. If you have a blog please include the challenge graphic & a link to our challenge in your post.
5. You can link to social media if you don't have a blog. If you show your project on Instagram, please make sure to use #TNtimewithLisaandLori 
6. You can submit multiple projects but they must be posted to InLinkz or social media separately.
7. Most importantly have FUN!

Be sure to stop by Lisa's blog and check out her beautiful spread for this month's challenge. I hope you have some time to play along with us!
