Indeed! Do join in and even spur me on! I didn't get around to posting "hello Mon" today - as I hoped - but that's what's so great - there are 52 Mondays in each year and always another chance, hopefully. Can't believe you had snow! Our Monday -4/9- was another day of sunshine.
I so enjoyed your layout- as always, just so beautifully executed. Looking forward to seeing the output from your new class...

Another wonderful CAS LO Alexa. Love the sepia toned photo with it's dotty border. And I'll be saying hello to my brother later on, whom I haven't seen since his adventures in Tanzania. Hope you have a good week. Pxx


I like the dotted border you used here--it goes so well with the uncluttered nature of the LO, plus I like how you tied that in with your journaling. Wonderful!


To getting organised with my marking before going back to work so I don't leave it all til the weekend as I have plans and it does not involve school work.
Enjoy your week x


Good health ... hopefully!

A beautiful photo Alexa.


I'm going to be saying hello to a new journal that I bought for a bit of painty, inky experimenting.

It is hard to know what to wear at the moment isn't it, one minute I've been in flip-flops the next looking for a warm jumper.

....and that's a beautiful photo of DD.

I love the dotted frame within the frame on this photo! I'm saying hello to far too much right now, but loving most of it! I'm hoping to have a post up about some of it by the end of the day.


Lovely page - beautiful photo! Glad your weekend was hug-filled!


It doesn't get any better than that..

..and I do like this thought - you have snet me away thinking about saying hello


beautiful, so beautiful.


This week I'm saying Hello to earlier mornings - I've gotten into the habit of sleeping in (just because I can), so this week I'm saying Hello earlier!

Beautiful layout!

I've always remembered something I heard a writer on TV [I think it was Toni Morrison]say, that all a child really wants to know is, when they enter a room, does their parent's face light up. Your photo here reminded me of that ... but in reverse. Judging by your daughter's face, you're very clearly loved. :-)

I'm saying hello to new shelves for all my notebooks [which James put up yesterday] and a new student on Thursday [always an interesting moment!]


Another page that feels me with warm feelings, Alexa. I love the simpleness and the way you used the dots round the photo. Less is more in this case.
I also love the idea of Hello Mondays, it's a good way to start any day infact. I'm going to say hello to packing our camper van. We have trips planned!

What a lovely photo and page - it suits that gorgeous smile perfectly!

Thanks for your comment on my blog - you mentioned the look of my photos. They were all taken on standard cameras, but edited at www.picmonkey.com - I'm a little bit addicted to that site right now! x

That truly is a beautiful photo.....and here's to keeping up with all your 'hellos'.


Love the journalling Alexa...you are SO right- hugs make all the difference to a day!

Another beautiful, simple Lo Alexa, yes I like the dotted lines too.
I love this idea, Hello Wednesday, I am looking forward to the weekend! For three days this week I have a new work colleague 'shadowing me' poor things, poor me, poor throat! and poor neglected blog. I am a great giver and receiver of hugs, sending one to you. x

Oh I like the dotty frame changing from light/dark - so simple and so effective.

I like Monday's for the same reason - a new week has started and that always brings new things.


Hello Alexa :) We had a snow storm last week and today it was 18C, but this weekend we may get snow again! My body is tired and feels wacked out - it doesn't know if it should hibernate or rejoice at the sunshine :)

That's a beautiful photo Alexa :) I look forward to seeing what you make with the Art of Abstraction - I so wanted to take it, but I'm really trying to focus on the photography class I'm taking right now. ("Oh Shoot" at Jessica Sprague).


Hello Alexa. That's such a gorgeous photograph and sentiment. The colours are perfect.
Thought you might like to see what I did with your recent free download. Here it is http://hearthearthhome.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/just-cruising-along.html

Greeting the week with 'Hello Monday' is such a pleasant start to the week. Irene


Love your list of inspiring 'hellos'. Me too - I'm ready to say hello to spring and summer clothes!


A lovely post to read this morning - your photo is fantastic and such lovely words.


so beautiful and sincere emotions-just lovely.


A lovely post and a lovely page too, what a wonderful happy smile :)
