Staying Warm in January

Happy Sunday!  Wow!  The weather has been crazy this past week with all of the snow, blizzard conditions, ice and flooding!  People, please stay safe and warm out there.  It hasn’t been that bad here in South Mississippi, just really COLD!  So, grab your favorite blanket, a good book, a cup of hot cocoa and curl up in your favorite chair for a while!  OH and please do not forget about those that have less than you do.  Always be kind and pay it forward and don’t forget about your pets or those that may belong to someone else.

A few more layouts for you to look at!




More Challenge Layouts

Here is a layout that I created for the Mini kit challenge at Gingerscraps.  I used the mini kit that was provided for the challenge.  Resolutions by Seatrout Scraps.


And… this layout was created for the first template challenge of the month.  The template was created by Dear Friends Designs and the kit is ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’ by Blue Heart Scraps.


I also created the first 365\52 layout of 2016 using the photos that I have taken for my 365 challenge.  Don’t forget that you can click on ‘galleries’ above and see all of the 365 challenge photos.


January Challenges and Layouts!

YES!  I finally got that photo gallery that I talked about in my last post!  If you look at the top of the screen you will see the link next to the “About Me” page….  GALLERY!  Exciting stuff this is!  For right now, I have only my Capture Your 365 gallery there but check back as I will be posting a new photo everyday!

On to a few of the layouts that I have created so far this month…..  Hello 2016!





Happy New Year 2016!

Can you believe that it is already 2016!  I hope that you all have had a wonderful Christmas Season and that New Years was shiny and bright!  But alas, now it is time to get back into the day to day grind, but lets hope that it really isn’t the same ole’ thing!  Did you make any New Years Resolutions?  How do you plan to keep up the momentum?  I ask myself these questions every year.  I did NOT make any resolutions this year.  The only thing that I plan to try and do is be more visible here and get  some more Scrapbooking done.  I also started my 365 with Capture Your 365 again.  I am hoping that I can make it all the way to the end this time, but if not, at least I will know that I have tried!  That’s all anyone can really do, right?

That being said, I wanted to share the rest of the layouts that I completed for December of 2015 with you and then I will post the beginning of my CY365 in photos with you.  I hope to be able to get back here and post the photos on a daily basis. Maybe I’ll figure out how to add a gallery or something to this blog.  It would be much easier to just post them there.  But until I do…  I’ll just have to post them here!

Layouts for December….




Check back for my 2016 layouts and my CY365 photos!
