“Welcome 2013!”

I hope you all has a pleasant New Yrs Eve! We had a quiet one here with my boys, a few drinks and nibbles and after some loud music and fire works going off in the neighborhood, hit the pillow about 1.30am 🙂

I am sitting in the boy’s room and Cody has just come home from work! Kitty sitting Miss Trishka with her collar off, watching she doesn’t have a chomp on her stitches!

A nice ‘do nothing day’ today, watched some tv with JJ, a bit of web surfing and not much else! 🙂 A nice start to the yr!
hope to get into the garden this week, although the weather is supposed to come in hot, so will see what happens! I hope to scrap sometime this week also!

I also have some exciting news to share with you on the 5th so stay tuned!! 🙂

Whatever you are doing enjoy!

“NY Resolutions!”

Happy New Year everyone!!  Do you have any NY Resolutions for 2012?  I have more what I would call goals, because I think they sound more achievable! lol! Only a few!! hehe!

My first one is to be able to go back and study to become a nurse! I am hoping that the help I need for mum and dads care will be available by June!!

Secondly of course is to complete my first yr of my Project Life successfully!

My third one would be to be more active than I have been! I know I have a busy life but doing some walking is my plan and becoming a little bit healthier along the way would be great!! Big son is motivating me and he is doing a great job! He said “mum we can go for walks and you can take your camera and you never know what we might see!” He does have some good ideas!!

And my fourth one is to save ‘some money‘ which I have already started to do! I have set up an acc I can’t touch and the bank transfers the money for me and I don’t even miss it!!  I can use it for Xmas, bills or whatever at the end of this yr!!!

Yep that means not buying so much scrap stuff right!!! lol!

I am being realistic I think and not expecting too much and hopefully will be great to see how I go!

What r your goals, maybe we could support each other!

Happy 1st of January!!

“My Faves for 2011!”

One of the members at Challenge Heaven, Leah Cameron thought it would be a good idea for us to post our Fave Layouts from 2011 and share them with you all! What a great idea Leah!  I have done a lot of scraping this yr looking back and so many happy memories! It was a big decision but here are my top 10 in no particular order!!

This was a fun challenge to use black and blights. Couldn’t go past this pic of Cody as a bub!

This was a pic of where my grandmother lived when we were little! I loved doing the collage!

                    I loved this pic of Cody, he is growing up too fast!

This was a double layout to show that J is a bit of a home body and that he has settled so well into me Home Schooling him!

I was trying our a different style and trying to learn how to match patterns here!

      I did a workshop to show the girls how to mosaic on a layout! Pics of JJ and Dad!

This was a challenge lo to used pattern papers in a different way! I had always wanted to try to quilt some pattern papers!

This was my wedding day and is my fave layout that I have done so far for my Stampin’ Up! album.

I love this photo of mum when she was 21.  I scanned the original and had to scrap it!

This is a 6×12 I did earlier in the year of my niece Crystal and me! She is the only niece I have and we are very close!

          I had to sneak this one in too out of my December Daily, as it was a fun Xmas Day!


I don’t think I will be scrapign so many in 2012 as I am sarting my project 365 in one more sleep!! lol!!

There are so many layouts I love that I have done this yr and I hope you enjoyed a little ‘walk down memory lane” with me!

Happy New Year!
