I really like the Studio Calico exclusive paper along with the Crate Paper for this design. The Prima goodies just add that special something.
This just goes to show you...in this day and time with the economy the way it is...No ONE is safe from CHANGE!

I really enjoyed creating this layout and used my Cricut to create hearts from cardstock.
CHA officially starts today and boy, I wish I were there!
Don't you wish you were there for the excitement?

I also want to take a "sidebar" here and say, THANK YOU to all of my creative friends here online that read my other blog, Bliss of the Unknown
and I appreciate the emails that I received with my post a few days ago. I promise to respond when I get a chance. This week is a busy week for me personally (funeral/wake/memorial) and promise to be more attentive to your emails next week and respond. Again, thank you.

It is just great fun to use up some of my goodies and make room to purchase more.

I took these photos on the Dawn of January 1, 2009. This is the morning break view from my scraproom. It is a glorious site and it changes from season to season and I really like watching the sun brighten the day.
I often wonder what other people notice about the dawning of new days. Are they hurried and rushed or is there this moment of complete awe and thanks? I am always in awe of a new day. It means life is continuing whether or not there are trials and tribulations or wonderful celebration. I am looking forward to this new year no matter what the journey unfolds. So, do you think to find the sunrise in the morning? Ever thought of the silence? It can be deafening but for just one minute lay all your burdens and chores away and take in the majestic glory of HIS handiwork.
What is the view from your scraproom?

Art Freckles is a new kit club and I am really enjoying the boards right now. I do not feel overwhelmed or feel like I am missing anything and the inspiration is great. I invite you to check Art Freckles out and join in for an upcoming contest. All of the information is posted on the message board and the deadline for sign ups is January 15th. Hey, it does not cost anything because the theme is based on YOUR STASH! Speaking of Art Freckles, here is my latest layout I created for a challenge using felt. Sorry for the quality of photo but lately the rain and no sun take a toll on natural lighting. Thanks for looking and I hope to see you around Art Freckles!
I have been scrapping more simple pages this weekend for my son's book. He prefers "simple" layouts or as he would say, "manly." But of course, I had to create a few for me and here is an example of one of my recent layouts from this weekend.
Well, the Winter Break is almost over for our family and we will be back into our regular routines this coming week. I am looking forward to slowing down a bit and getting back to my daily creating and time alone.
I hope your New Year has gotten off to a great start!
