Happy New Year

Wow. This year FLEW by.... I mean it... it grew WINGS and flapped on by.  Not only that... but I let it!! Stupid facebook and my addictive personality.. the two mesh so perfectly, it's not funny! ;) If *IF* I make a New Years resolution, it's to be more OPEN, and INVOLVED, and yes I need to capitalize ALL that!  I hope all my family & friends experience a prosperous, healthy, and happy 2010! (I believe our cars are supposed to be flying in the air now, right?)

Anyways, I scrapped three layouts yesterday.. omigosh.. felt fantastic!  It had been since mid October since I scrapped. That's what I love about this craft/hobby.. it's always there for you when you come back to it.  A lot like my online friends. You all ROCK.. even when I don't. ;)

I found a blog hop today that was advertised on TallyScrapper.., Pamela from Scrapbook Challenges is hosting a blog hop until the 3rd!  Make sure you first stop by Pamela's blog to HOP in order! Lots of fantastic inspiration I saw along the way... and it can't hurt to try and win a goodie now and then too! :)  If you join in, make sure to check out the member blogs on the SC forum as well!

Here's the sketch as an extra blog hop challenge by Pamela.




And here is my take on the sketch.



It was getting pretty dark outside, so the photo isn't the best... and I figured out, taking a photo of my layout with my 50mm lens isn't easy. I feel like I have to S t r E t c H way up on my tippy toes to get the shot! lol

I want MORE family fun in 2010. I was thinking of my AE word for the year, and I decided mine was involved. I want to be more involved with my family and friends. With my hobby. With life. :)

I'll rattle on more soon! Cheers, and Happy New Year!!
