Happy New Year!!!

It is officially a new year and I just want to remind everyone about the new scrapbook site/shop that will have it's Grand Opening in 1 week....don't forget to mark your calendars so you can join in all the fun and excitement!


With a new year almost always come the New Year's resolutions. Now, just so you know...I am not real big on resolutions...simply because I tend to slack and finally totally break everyone of them I have made before the end of February...sometimes way sooner than that.

However, I do have a few....let's not call them resolutions....let's call them DESIRES for a new year.

1. I want to eat healthier.... exercise more...and just be generally a more healthy

2. I want to design at least 3 new kits per month to go into my stores. I'm not
looking for quantity...I'm looking for quality.

3. I want to make sure that I blog at least twice per week. I would like to do
more...but I am being realistic.

4. I want to scrap at least 1 layout per week....I really want to do at least 1
everyday....but I don't think I am being realistic with that desire.

5. I want to get 2 or 3 ladies or guys to be on my personal CT. If you are
interested...just email me at and put CT in the subject line.

************************************************************************ that I have my DESIRES for 2011 out of the way....I host a challenge at Moo Two Designs called Fireside Tales. This challenge is all about journaling. You already know how I feel about resolutions....and we all know that you will see those challenges about doing a page with your New Year's I just HAD to be challenge is to do a sort of 'year in review' type layout. Here is the example that I did:


I used my own kit Timeless Treasures and a font called Just Old Fashioned.

Now...this month I am also hosting the Chuck Wagon Challenge at Moo Two Designs...and since one of my DESIRES was to eat you see where this is challenge is to find healthy main dish recipes...preferably that are quick and easy! Here is the page I did for that challenge.


I used Bon Appetit by LadyBug Creations and the font was again Just Old get the idea I like this font!!

I am also hosting a font challenge at the new site....but since I haven't been given permission from the site owner to release the site address as yet...I will be good...however, here is the layout I made for that challenge.


I actually did this layout this morning! Now I used another of my kits called Hometown Christmas and a font called Cocktail Bubbly. This kit will be in the store sometime today.


Now for your FREEBIE. This is the last installment of the Alphas.....there hasn't been much downloading of these alphas...I don't know if you all don't like them...if it was just because it was a holiday....or what....because I have no comments or emails giving me any feedback. I want to give FREEBIES that are wanted and if you would just leave me a little feedback in the comments or send me an email letting me know what you think. I would really appreciate it!!

Today you will be getting the numbers and all the symbols.



I look forward to hearing from all of you!!

Until Next Time!!!
