A Year of Challenges

This year is going to be a Challenge Year for me and I have a bunch.  I really want to challenge myself to really take my scrapbooking to a new level and I've already really started growing with the help of Swirly Doo's Gallery and inspirational blogs such as Lisa Gregory's should check her out she's amazing and Tim Hotlz ( who doesn't adore that cutie genius)

I also want to get published this year, so I really need to bump up my game and start submitting...which I haven't been doing...I hate challenge is get over that fear.

I want to continue to loss weight, I'm 30lbs down but plan on doing a lot more and continue to feel great for myself and my family

I want to participate in challenges that various companies offer and maybe I'll host some challenges myself this year. 

So what are your challenges, goals or New's Year Resolutions?  Leave me a comment and let me know and I wish everyone a Creative and Blessed 2011.

10 Things I Love ....

This was actually a challenge for me to do a layout page about myself.  I love to scrapbook my boys and family but to sit down and do a layout about me...that was hard. 

I used Echo Park's paper and Unity Stamps that coordinate with the Echo Park line.  I also used Tim Holtz's bird cage die the way if you love Tim Holtz you should check out the sale Joann's is having on his metal embellishments...below wholesale.  I ordered way to much last night, but boy will it be fun when that order comes in. I also used some yummy sequin ribbon and chipboard from Maya Road and the pretty numbers are from Pink Paislee.

So today I'm bit and determined to get some more scrapping done as I've been really lazy over the holidays and I need to feel my days off amounted to something...

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year and I'll see you next year.
