01/31/18 - "Seriously Cozy" and Monthly Re-cap

One of my scrappy goals this year is to try really hard to keep up w/ my scrap-worthy photos!
This is why I am branching out into different styles/sizes/types of documenting.
I have plans to write a blog posts explaining all that...eventually.
For today though I am sharing:
- my most recent completed project; #23 for the month/year.
- a re-cap of my month in general.
(Another goal I have this year is wanting to do a re-cap at the end of every month.)
First the layout:

12x12 Layout
"Seriously Cozy"
"Friday Morning: hanging out w/ Hamlet in between running errands...
Afternoon: Repeat, but this time Panini decides to join us. 1.12.2018"

Question: Why do cats look pissed off even when they are doing what they want?!
For those who are new to my blog, just a heads up, I LOVE animals and my animals are pretty much the world to me; they are (just barely) under my kids and husband, LOL, so I spend a lot of time cuddling w/ them.
I actually have 3, the other is a dog,  but it's very difficult to get them all together at the same time!
This particular day I was able to get a photo of 2 of my babies together...and although I think ALL my pet photos are scrap-worthy...this was even more-so!
A lot of the products on my layout came from the "The Scrap Room" January Kit(s):
And my (favorite) Simple Stories "Emoji" Kit.
Now for my monthly re-cap:
Number of projects created = 23
12x12 Layouts = 6
4.5x8.5 Traveler's Notebooks Layouts = 6
Mini-Album (Dec Daily) Pages = 4
Pocket Pages = 6
OLW Pages = 1
4 of the above projects were done for a challenge I decided to join for the first time this year: the Counterfeit Challenge Blog... now that I know what I'm doing, I'm hoping to accomplish more for this challenge next month!
BTW - Some of these I haven't yet shared, but I will.
Also, non-scrap related: I read 3 books.
My goal is 25 for the year; last year I read 23.
I'd say it was a productive month!
Tomorrow is the first day of February and I am looking forward to a new month of scrappiness!
Hope January was a good (and productive) month for you!
