January Blog Challenge

Happy 2015! Welcome to the first blog challenge of the year. 

If this isn't the first time you've played along you know I fall in love with each and every one of our blog templates.  I use every single one and most of them more than once.  They're just so versatile.   I think that what pulled me into this template at first glance.  You can use it as a stand alone with a great big photo.  You can use it as a background starter.  You could even use it for a journal page and pair it opposite a bunch of photos.  Honestly, there are so many options!
