2008 Goal

I have had a few minutes to think about what my goals are for next year - craftwise that is! I have to do a lot of mindless filing at my job so my mind tends to wander and think of things that are more fun! I really need to work harder on my scrapbooking! I have SO many pictures and SO many supplies that I really should get a game plan together! If you have any ideas or suggestions of what works for you to keep up with your scrapbooks send me an email ( and I'll post them here to share with everyone else! I am putting up pictures of pages I made with all SU items that I bring to show at my parties I do! I hope you like them as much as I do!

Here is my DH at his first marathon - I used the real red 12x12 paper, brilliant blue paper and whisper white paper. The stars are from the hostess set (only available until 31 December!) "Perfect Presentation"! I mounted the words separate so I could just use the star and in this page I embossed the stars for a little extra "oomph"! LOL!

Here is a page of myself at my job - it's true I really do love my job! I love working with the children and this page just shows it all! (Can you believe that's me in the cow suit?! Long story there!) I used the brilliant blue, yoyo yellow paper and the letter "I" is actually the word window punch! Cool huh?!

This is my eldest child - Jessica. I used the "In Color" "Groovy Guava" and chocolate chip paper and ink (are you hungry yet?!!) The stamps are part of the "Baroque Motifs" set. I hope they don't retire it as I just love that one! I also used the flower punch in the sky blue color paper! I love that combo!

This is true - Michael is my favorite son! LOL! He's so handsome in this picture I just love it! His Grandfather takes gorgeous pictures of the kids - such a talented man! I used the stamp set "Loads of Love" - just the tree! I also used two punches (can't have enough of those and cool new star is coming out in January!) I used the small tag punch and the horizontal slot. I used the hemp fibers to give it a little something extra! The papers I used were Blue Bayou 12x12 and the chocolate chip again! Love that page and that boy! I also inked up some of the SU chipboard letters for this! I am very pleased with them and will be getting more! There are also small brads in the corner of the pictures if you look close!

This last page is of my youngest, my baby! She does make me smile, laugh, cry, proud.....etc... all my kids do though! I used pink passion, tempting turqouise and yoyo yellow paper and the letter "b" is a chipboard letter that I just inked up! It took the ink very well - better then I expected! I used the typeset letters and the
1" circle punch to pop them out and the stamp set "Pick a Petal" for the flower

I hope you like the pages! Let me hear your scrapbook plans for next year! I like knowing my "road of good intentions through life" isn't a lonely one! I know I'm not travelling it alone! LOL!
