A New Monthly Installment in my Scrappy Routine

Every year around my birthday I think about how I really should scrap more about myself.  I am in lots of pictures and layouts - but I don't do a lot about who I am.  Well today is my birthday so it is the perfect time to finally follow through on that thought!  Each month around this date I am going to try to scrap a page that tells a little about me.  I want something that I can look back at in ten years (and beyond) that shares a little about my day to day life and the things that I do and love.

I recently picked up the collection Through the Year Collection from Echo Park by Jennifer Gallacher.  I decided to make this collection my base for this monthly series - it's perfect because it has stuff for each month!  So without further adieu, here's January!

I fussy cut the diamond shapes from some patterned paper in the collection and used those to create my background.  I then simply added some stickers, enamel dots, and wood.  For the journaling/topic this month I just decided to do things I Love.  

I wanted to do day to day things that I love, not like the big obvious things like God, my hubby, kids, family, etc...but more the stuff I might forget :)  Here's my list: hot baths, good devotions, cookie butter, silly kids (those giggles from my littlest boys are the best), cheese pizza, Forever (the tv show), hazelnut coffee, popcorn, loud music (in my car by myself ;)), facebook, Bible Study, Fitbit, IPhone, and Daniel Tiger (not looking forward to the little boys outgrowing that show).  

Do you scrap about yourself too?  I'd love to see how you are documenting your own history!  
Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Echo Park
Stickers: Echo Park
Wood: Cosmo Cricket
Enamel Dots: Simple Stories
