actually posting twice in one week...I'm
going to try my best to update more on my blog
for 2011, we'll!!!!
I have a NEW layout to share with you today...

For this layout"Goofball" I used the Nov/Dec. Kit from Tallyscrapper.  I won some
Smooch Spritz from a friends blog, so I used it to spray the background paper from the kit
to give it an artsy feel to it for these goofy photos of my Kaleb.
This layout is also for the
Noel Mignon's January
Challenge, to mist on your

Also, do you want to see what
my hubby got me for Christmas this
year...Isn't it purty, now I can be in the

Changes for 2011

OMG, Happy New Year....
I still can't believe
that it is
I swear time is just
flying by.
So of course I've made
the usual New Years
*Eat Healthier
*Exercise More
I'm making a few different
ones this year....

**I'm going to do a 5k with my bff, Pam(my first, so we'll see how it goes)

**Keep up with my laundry and house more

**Going to find me a part-time job

I don't know if those are really the proper-type of resolutions to make...but i don't care...this is about me and what I need to do for me!!!!

2011 is going to be a great year and alot of BIG changes for our family. Bill found out in December that he will be retiring on June 1st from the Marine Corps. Honestly, this scares the crap out of me, but I know that he is ready to move on with the next chapter of his life. Which is why ONE of my resolutions is to find a pt!! We are hoping that he can find a job here in Jacksonville, NC, since we already have a house, plus Danielle will be starting High School next year...Yikes!! So ALOT of changes ahead for us this year!! Please pray for our family!!

So the next big change for me so far this year is......

Yep, I went dark!! OMG, I was competely in shock when I first saw my hair, wasn't sure if I would like it, since I have ALWAYS been blonde, but its growing on me. Thanks for all the nice comments on facebook!!!

So I do believe that covers MY big changes so far this year and some of my resolutions that I want to accomplish this year!!

On another note...I've been struggling with scrapbooking lately, not the process, but just some personal issues that I was having(not going to get into it all, those who scrap with me at Tally, know what I'm talking about)but I do believe that is changing for the better.

Here are a couple of layouts that I have completed in the last week or so....

**Diva** I used the Nov/Dec. kit from Tallyscrapper for this layout. I just love this photo of my daughter...shows her personality perfectly!!

**Thankful** I used the December kit from Little Red Scrapbook Club for this layout.

Happy New Year to all my family and friends!!
