TN Time with Lisa & Lori 2021

It's a New Year and I am still playing along in my traveler's notebook with my friend Lori aiming to provide you with a fun monthly Traveler's notebook challenge each and every month in 2021!!  So let's kick off the New Year with a new TN Time with Lisa & Lori challenge!!

HERE IS HOW OUR CHALLENGE WORKS: This is a monthly challenge that launches on the 10th of each month  You will have until the 9th at midnight CST to link up your entries. If you complete my sketch challenge link your TN, bullet journal or planner spread below. If you combined my challenge with Lori's challenge link up your spread here on my blog AND on Lori's Blog (My Happy Life). For 2021 we are making this challenge a "just for fun" challenge with no prize, but isn't the real prize just documenting your memories and getting more pages done in 2021???!!!! 
Now for my challenge!! Here is this month's sketch:

Now for Lori's fun challenge: (January 10th-February 9th):

What an fun challenge!!  I love the color blue and have tons of washi tape so this challenge was super easy for me!   
Here is my spread in my new 2021 TN- I used the sketch & Lori's challenge:
Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd Let's Go on an Adventure and Carta Bella Let's Travel; doily: Unknown source; Stickers: Echo Park Have Faith & Illustrated Faith She Blooms; Letter Stickers: American Craft Thickers (blue),Making Memories (black) & Jillibean Soup (numbers); journal card: unknown source; washi tape (pink plaid border): unknown 

I stuck pretty close to the sketch as you can see, however, for my washi tape I placed it on a strip of white cardstock and then adhered it slightly under the red piece to make a washi tape border!  I just didn't like how the dots on the grid paper of the TN showed through the washi so I improvised and added it to the white actually was easier to get it straight this way too so I may use this technique (cheat) more often!!  

Now for some close ups:
I tried to stamp my month and day but ended up smearing the ink!! since this was the only journal card I had like this and I didn't want to chunk it I just printed the day/month on my computer and glued it over the mistake lol!  You can see for my blue elements of the challenge I used this beautiful blue floral paper by Bella Blvd Let's Go on an Adventure as well as a blue church and word strip sticker and blue letters!! 
We had a prayer night last week at our church and I was active in planning it as I am a member of the prayer ministry team.  So far this is the only thing I have done in January with no plans to do anything else so it is my first "event" of the New Year!  And with all of the chaos that happened last week it was the perfect night for a prayer night!  This is the verse our pastor recited to us from 2 Chronicles at the start of the service and is one I want to keep in the forefront of my mind all year! 

Now for the nitty gritty of how to play along:

  1. This is such a pretty spread! I love the use of the doily and great save on the journaling card! I also love the photo of your church. What a wonderful thing that you helped to plan.
