Happy New Year!



Hello and happy new year to ya! We're back home, and I've actually managed to complete a couple of layouts in the last few days (sleep is for the weak anyway). I put together the first layout when I realized that I probably wasn't going to get one of Becky Higgins' "Project 365" kits. I plan to have a 2-page layout for each week of the year, following this design. It would have been easier with the kit, but this will accomplish the same thing, which is a record of our day-to-day life in 2009. If I do manage to get my hands on a kit, I'll just include whichever layouts I've already completed in that album. Still think it's stinky that so few people were able to place an order. The second layout is from the class I took at CKC-Phoenix with Cathy Zielske. She provided the sketch and all the supplies, we just added journaling, a photo and then put it all together. The journaling came from an exercise we did in class about why we scrapbook. Just thought I'd share!

Speaking of Cathy Z, I don't know if any of you read her blog, but last week she posted a give-away, and guess what, I won! Woo-hoo! It's a class being offered by one of her sponsors. If it turns out to be any good, I'll be sure to letcha know! Have a great week!! :)

Guess you're back to reality after a great trip to Colorado. Love your l/o. Your style is so awesome. Please show more of your weekly designs for 2009.

First glance of Cathy's Z's blog the other day and I thought you HAD won the 365 kit. Thinking you should forget about trying to score the kit, your layout is seriously way better than the 365 sample.

Jeanne, I got to your blog through Becky Higgins blog. I just wanted to say I LOVE your layout! Did you put everything on a 12x12 piece of cardstock, or is that a divided protector? I swear when I first saw it, I thought you HAD the kit! Nice job!
