On a roll...

Wanted to make something a little different today.
That was fun!

On another note, I think we have decided to do the Disney thing this spring. Braden has been asking for 3 years now and I want to do it while it's still "magical" for him. I doubt Bryson will remember it at his age, unfortunately. Anybody have any good advice for doing Disney with a 6 and 2 year old??

A couple of new ones...

Just wanted to share a couple of new pages I completed this week...

I did one like this for Braden several years ago. It's fun to look back and remember how they said things when they first started talking...
This one was a bit of a challenge for me. I am not accustomed to:
1 - Making a page about myself
2 - Using a super girly color like PINK!
It was fun!

And then there's this:

Saw one of these in a CK and had to make my own version for Bryson's room!

On another note, I have been reading this book that Braden's teacher let me borrow.
I found this quote today that I totally love:

What you do today is important because you
are exchanging a day of your life for it...
let it be something good.

Wow. Words to live by...

From the Holidays! It's a lot of fun, but it sure is a lot of work too. I swore I wouldn't bake another thing for at least 6 months! The cookie party went well, and I was having so much fun, I only got one picture:

-Still trying to finish up the Christmas daily album I only got half finished because I didn't have time. Want to get that all fixed up in the next few days before I run out of motivation for it.

-Braden starts back to school tomorrow. I'm really gonna miss him. It has been like old times around here. Guess I'm still not used to the school thing.

-Turned in a new page at the scrapbook store:

-My word for this year is "Blessings". I will be creating an album throughout this year to go along with it called "Everyday Blessings". My goal is to recognize at least one blessing each week and scrapbook it. I want to learn to appreciate more of the good -- and see more good in the seemingly bad. Scrapbooking really is therapy, isn't it? Hopefully I will be posting my first page soon. Just took the photo for it 5 minutes ago!

-I need to do some purging and reorganizing in this scraproom of mine. Bet I could find a boatload of stuff to give away.

Well, I'd better spend a few more minutes with my boys before bedtime!
