MaggieandMommy -- I knew she wouldn't dissapoint

OK, so now that I am back to scrapping, I have started gallery surfing some of my fav rectangles out there. First stop I made was to the Digi Chick to visist Maggieandmommy's gallery. She has always been amongst my favs -- her style is clean yet full of emotion. Anyways, I was struck by this LO as it has wonderful pics and it also show how you can pull off multiple photos in a rectangle LO. Thanks for the inspiration!

New Year's Resolution

Wow, this blog started as a New Year Resolution in 2006 -- 2 years ago, so hard to believe. They last year and a half, well, it has been rough with the start of my photo business and the decline of my loved Mother in Law. I have tried many times to get back on the scrapping wagon ... and failed terribly each time. I used to scrap and share my LOs with my MIL -- and everytime I opened PS -- I just didn't know where to start and so many memories came back of scraps I had done and shared with her. Anyways, 2008 is a New Year and time to reintroduce me to the scrap world. I was sitting down with my daughter Cassidy a few evenings back going over her Brag Book. She will be 4 in March, and the last scrap was 21 Months. I felt just terrible -- yet at the same time, was inspired. So, here I am with a New Years Resolution -- time to get back into things.

So, for any of you out there, I finally opened Photoshop for something other then my Photo business (which is crazy busy if anyone cares) and scrapped. Wow, I was slow, and found it hard to get scrapping. Not sure if I am in love with these scraps, but they are done .. and I think are the beginning of a lot more to come (I hope). I may even find it in me to design! I am not rushing that one just yet.

So, hope you like the scraps and hopefully you will hear a lot from the new Me (who, I must share with you is 35 lbs lighter then in September lol)
