New LOs

the Project 365 commitment is going well so far. Here's my weekly layout for the P52 version going on over at Funky Playground- we actually have to scrap a photo a week for it. Celestial Seasonings' holiday tea Candy Cane Lane is my winter favorite, especially at night after the house is quiet. It's a mint tea, but not quite as strong as regular peppermint tea. I really enjoy it so I stocked up this year while it was available in the stores.

My 2008 Year In Review layout for the annual exchange with my scrapping friends I crop with every month. We're running behind this year and it looks like we might not be able to all get together until February now, but at least my pages are done. All I need to do now is have the copies printed and trimmed.
journaling: 1- We met Irene Bedard, the voice of Disney’s Pocahontas, at the Denver Indian Market on January 19; 2-Brenna turns 5 and 3- Bryce turns 10 in April; 4- Touring the Mollie Kathleen goldmine with my sister and her kids during their visit in June; 5- visiting with Dale in July; 6- visiting my grandparents and cousins in July; 7 Brenna goes to Kindergarten; 8- Beth and Carissa turn 10 in August; 9- Mark and I get away for a few days in September to Savannah, Georgia; 10- Sarah turns 3 in October

I did this layout for the mgl playday at scrapbookgraphics last week. The photo was taken after the Michael Card concert in December 2007, so that is why we are all dressed up.

journaling: We finally got the kids a Wii, and they love it! One of everyone’s favorite games is bowling in Wii Sports. Even Brenna can play this one and is good at it. Carissa is the bowling champ though, having rolled a 7-pack (a series of 7 strikes in a row) once and a 6-pack twice.

It's haircut day in our house, so I need to get Sarah ready to go as the first round of appointments is right after I pick Brenna up from school. Round 2 is for Beth and Carissa after they get out of school. Beth and Carissa want to grow their bangs out since most girls at dance have theirs that way, I guess we will give it a try but they are going to have to start keeping their hair a bit neater without my prompting every morning for them to be able to keep it that way ;)

Melinda your multi-photo layouts always inspire me. You always manage to get so many photos on the page without it looking cluttered. That is truly a skill!
