This year's Christmas card evolved into a Happy New Years Card. Maybe I'll be more organized next year...but I highly doubt it. I wanted to do something similar to last years year in review, but with a little twist. 2011 was such a wonderful year. We made some big life changes, and although some seemed crazy at the time, everything fell into place. I am grateful for this past year and for having Cree to share it with. As we move into the new year, I have been inspired by the words from this creed by President George Albert Smith. I can't wait to see what 2012 holds.

Happy belated New Year!

  21. We read that creed last night together :)

    I'm sorry I forgot to mention how much we loved your cards! A bright spot on our fridge. It took us about 5 minutes to decipher the 2012. Sometimes we're not so bright. haha.

  31. first of all, beautiful design. as always. i especially like the think space the white space gives on the cover part. and the whole thing is just overall lovely and creative.

    secondly, i just finished reading the first george albert smith lesson (that i'll teach sunday) right before i opened my computer and saw your reference to his creed. kinda like magic. thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for 2012 with us!
