Happy New Year!

2012, wow, it feels like 2011 just started. Not the best of years in our house and I’m glad to see it gone. Looking forward to a year good I hope with no sickness or death and much happiness and health.

I started off the New Year with a diet and exercise, I’m headed to San Diego in March and want to look good enough to have my picture taken so I can scrap some photos that I’m actually in when I come back!

Speaking of scrapping, Just Add Ink is having a scrapbook challenge which Jodene pointed out and I decided since it had been so long since I scrapped a page that I was in! My page is about Jake’s first birthday. Seeing how he just turned 16 and is now driving, I figured it was about time I did this page!

1st birthday

Thanks Jodene for the link and thanks Just Add Ink for the challenge, it was fun to look back on these old photos!

I also made 30 Valentine’s Day cards for the soldiers. I wanted to make more but taking down my Christmas decorations took me all day Saturday. Then yesterday I got started sorting the cards I’d received already and that took a long time so the card making took a backseat. But at least I got some done.

It’s been a very peaceful weekend at my house with everyone in Maine but they will be home very soon so I’ve got to go get dinner started, they already called and said they were hungry, they skipped lunch! Have a great week!

Well you can't rush these things Pam! lol But it was worth the wait, it's a great page and I love the colors and that little banner - too cute!
Also loved your comment on my blog, it made me laugh :) I hope to do more sometime this year. hehe

Pam, it might have taken 16 years in the making, but this page was worth the wait! A fun and colourful layout.
