#joycreated Challenge | Perspective

Welcome to 2015!! It’s a new year and today is the perfect opportunity to make a fresh start. I’m Kimberly, also known as enjoyyourpix in the forums. I’ve been on the ForeverJoy team for just over a year and am excited to be bringing you our first monthly challenge. 2014 was a ridiculously difficult year for me and I welcome the new year. I love how how Renne asks us, “What joy will you create today?” I have decided to make 2015 a year of #joycreated. The Lilypad is about real life. documented. Real life can be messy, but the challenge is to create and find joy. ForeverJoy celebrates that joy by creating beautiful digital artwork to help us preserve those moments. No matter what difficulties I may have, there is always something I can do to recognize and create {more} joy.

Featured Product for January
The first step in creating a year of joy is to make sure you have the right perspective. In honor of that, I have chosen 20/20 by ForeverJoy Designs as the January featured product. Renne has discounted it 30% off for us during January. Thanks Renne!!

20/20 by ForeverJoy Designs at The Lilypad

Inspiration
I have two layouts that use 20/20 that I hope will inspire you to create a layout that celebrates your new perspective for 2015.

The Way I See It | by enjoyyourpix using 20/20 by ForeverJoy Designs

I created the first layout for this challenge. The way I see it … my joy (or lack thereof) is a choice. I want to make 2015 a year to bring more joy into my life. Taking a moment to run to get ice cream with the kids, take silly photos, and laugh at myself are all important activities to cherish and remember.

Look with Your Heart | by enjoyyourpix using 20/20 by ForeverJoy Designs

The second layout is going to be the title page in a book of inspirational layouts that I have made and will create this year. This is our one life. There’s no looking back and we need to be driven by our joyful hearts. Not to mention, it’s just a pretty page and that brings me joy too!! LOL.

How to participate
Simply create some digital joy using Renne’s designs in your layout. For January, the challenge is to scrap about your perspective and/or how you are creating joy in 2015. Non-FJ templates are a-ok.  Layouts can be any combination of ForeverJoy’s designs. Post in the ForeverJoy gallery at The Lilypad and tag with #joycreated. Paste a link to the  gallery where you posted back here in the comments of this post. The deadline is Saturday, January 31st, 2015 at 10pm EST.

One lucky participant will be randomly selected to receive a gift certificate to the  ForeverJoy Designs’ Shoppe. The winner and layout will be posted in February’s challenge post here on the blog.

I invite you to join me in a year of documenting the joy you create. I encourage you to participate in the monthly ForeverJoy blog challenges, enjoy discounts on the featured products, and perhaps win  coupon codes to pick up free ForeverJoy products. Let’s create joy, share it, and watch it grow.

Finally, even you dont play along with the challenges here on the blog, We’d love to see your layouts tagged with #joycreated on social media: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. If you use Instagram, be sure to use #joycreated  @the_lilypad. You just may find your layout featured in one of our spotlights.

I know you'll understand that documenting real life can be therapeutic, and mainly my hands are not strangling anyone while I am scrapping, which is a joy to more persons than one! Happy New Year, the page is about my turning my back onto 2014 that ended unexpectedly unwell, and moving into the 2015, some perspective, hey? And I absolutely didn't scream, stomp, or strangle, just scrapped. 🙂 Everybody wins

LOVE the kit, and I decided to do this layout because my choice was find some joy in it, or throttle the dog. You can see which way I went, which was a much better direction! People are laughing looking at the 'dog shaming' photo I managed to get, and the pieces of the kit were too perfect! Thank you for hosting this!

I love your take on this challenge and you are right. Doing something like scrapbooking distracts us from taking actions that will undermine the joy in our lives. Way to go for pushing past the crappy moments! Here's to a 2015 filled with JOY!!! Hope to see you here next month too!!!

2015 is the year for me to find balance in my life, especially between my mind and my heart.
