Whatever was I thinking? I signed up on Shuttercal for 2010. It's a calendar-picture-a-day-thing. It encourages users to take a picture a day to document your life over the course of the year. The concept is good, but c'mon..... I go months without updating this blog. HOW am I ever going to keep up with the photo a day???? It's a challenge. I need more challenge in my life, right?

Actually, I think it's a reaction to the fact that my "home away from home" on the web for the last 7 years closed. Lifetime Moments is no more. It's so sad. I can't even tell you how many people I've met and become good friends with thru the site - from California, to Virginia, to Texas and Minnesota... man, I've met some of the most wonderful people in the world thru LM. I got to go to the first Crop of a Lifetime in San Diego as well as attend a LM crop in Detroit. While some may laugh when I tell people I scrapbook. To me, not only has it allowed our family's life to be documented, but it's brought me true friendship. That's hard to find these days. So here's to LM.... I'm going to miss you!

Since we are talking about scrappin', here's another little lo I finished up last night. It's for a Pagemaps sketch contest. Addi & Tierney... can they be any cuter???
The pinks of greens of the Scrappin' Sports and more dance papers were perfect for this layout along with a bit of red from the family line and some green from the Name of the game line. Love this lo.

Here's to 2010

Today we usher in a new year. So long 2009, welcome 2010! Today Micah and I have plans to go shopping for a while. A little retail therapy is a good way to start the year, don'tcha think? So while I wait for her to get home so we can head out, I'm going to take the time to update this long, ignored blog and then I'm going to try to get a layout scrapped too.

Here's one I finished last night - papers used are all from Scrappin' Sports and More football papers along with some Prism cardstock. We were all pleased when Michael was able to get that ol' #61 back for his sophomore year at BVU.
Well, time to get off the computer. The Rose Bowl Parade is on and I want to see the floats and scrap a while.
