I love the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie:  2018-The Year of... sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique  What a great challenge for a new year!  I am not very good with resolutions...I often break them within the first 24 hours of a new year.  I gave a lot of thought as to what my word for 2018 should be...Focus.  Focus on what is important in all aspects of my life:  family, job, and me!

 I started with  a small Dina Wakely Media Board and  created the background with layers of Distress Oxide Black Soot and Fired Brick and stamps in Ranger Wendy Vecchi Watering Can Archival Ink.  I used stamps that emphasized "focus".  I finished off the board with the word focus and a monocle to emphasize the eye stamp.  I plan to place this in a strategic spot in my office to keep me...what else but focused.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! ;) Kim
