More on 365...

Ok. I know I already talked about Project 365 in my last post, but here it is again. For those of you who don't know, Project 365 is about documenting a year in your life. So I plan to take a photo every day, and do weekly pages compiling them together. I had heard about it, but didn't pay much attention. I figured it was just another 1-a-day challenges. And it is, to a point. But Becky Higgin's forgiving, flexible attitude made me realize I can participate in any capacity I choose. If I miss a day taking photos, no biggie. I can journal about it. Or not. Totally up to me. Kinda took the stress off, and I got all excited about it. The more I thought about it, the more I was totally convinced. I was sucked right in... hook, line, and sinker.

On another note, today are Little League tryouts. Didn't realize Jack had to try out. I'm sure he'll be going into Coach Pitch, which is the next level for him. Jeff plans to coach, too. Should be a fun season! I'm excited to see how today goes, and I'm just a little nervous for Jack, because he tends to get nervous in these situations. Regardless, the dude is playing baseball this spring for sure. Woohoo!

Project 365

Ok, so I'm late. But I want to play! I've decided I want to do Project 365. Unfortunately, I missed a few pics for my first week of January. But that's ok. I can journal about those days, and at least I have 7 pics for the week. I'm so excited! I think I'm really going to enjoy this project! I plan to have my first layout up soon.... I will keep them simple so I can just get them done. Plus... they need to be simple to fit all the pics! Cheers to a fabulous 2009!!!

The Wrinkley Thing

I just noticed that the last three layouts I posted have crumpled, wrinkled paper backgrounds. And I like the wrinkled look. But I think I've been overdoing it. I think next time I need to iron the paper back out after I crinkle-and-ink or wrinkle-and-sand. I so need to be scrapping more so I can find my groove again!

Magic of Christmas

I just love the magic of Christmas. The trees. The lights. The scents. The music. Santa. I love it all. This was my favorite photo from Christmas 2008. Unfortunately, I kinda ruined it by overdoing the layout! LOL! I think I'll do a second one and keep it simple!
