First layout for 2010

Hey there! Hope you had a great weekend, we did!  This weekend my DH and I spent it with our sweet niece Alexa.  She is almost 8 and loves spending time with her uncle and aunt!  We took her out for dinner on Friday, then she and I created in my craft studio Saturday morning.  Later that day we ended up at Build a Bear and she made herself an Alvin and off to the movies the three of us went.  We saw Alvin and the chipmunks and I was dreading it but ended up loving it. Her uncle was a good sport and I think I even heard him chuckle a few times!  Today we played in the craft studio yet again and this layout is what I “ACCOMPLISHED”.  I am so proud of myself for finishing it because in the middle of doing this layout I had to leave to go drop her off.  It is so easy not to come back and finish but had to, after all “ACCOMPLISH” is my word of the year!  The only catch is that the photo isn’t a true photo and so I’ll have to run by my local photo shop tomorrow.  But, I’m still calling this as finished. LOL

Here is another photo I took of our sweetie along with the actual version used on the layout.

I'm so glad you had a great weekend! My new camera finally arrived! The poor UPS guy had NO idea how excited I would be to see him! :)

I like your word choice. I think it will be a good motivator for you.

Hugs, My Talented Friend ♥

Hi Nancy - One of my New Year's goals for 2010 is to start scrapbooking again. It's all part of my de-clutter efforts - putting those beloved photos now crammed into boxes into formats I can truly enjoy the memories. Thank you for the great ideas and thank you for visiting my site!
