A Time to Remember and A Time to Predict...

... Every year, I pick some new year's resolutions and then follow up the following year by reviewing what I have accomplished. This year, I did okay... I accomplished about 1/2 of my goals.
Here's the layout:I tucked the journaling in behind the picture on a card that pulls out...
Then, I decided to do 2009 using the word Patience as my word for the year. There's so much coming for us this year that I need to remember to be patient and flow with life and good things will happen...
Both of these layouts were part of a Cyber Crop last week at Scrapbook Doodle called Scrap-A-Thon. The goal is to do 20 challenges over the period of a week using mostly scraps out of our bags. One of my resolutions with the downturn in my job was to really reduce my scrapbook supply purchases and use more of what I already own. So, I didn't buy a single thing for any of these layouts (above or below). They were all part of my stash in the house.

This is a page about a day at the beach with Annde & Nickie:

And here's a couple of cards... If you wonder why they are blank, it is because I never know what kind of card I am going to need at the last moment and by leaving them blank, I can insert the right sentiment or quote for whatever sentiment I am going for...
Lastly, here's a page I did about my 35th birthday a couple of weeks ago. I love the ornate layering with the simplicity of the topic.

More stuff to come... I have some design team stuff for the Zone to post as well as some more layouts I have done this week...

Peace out from my blog!
