Layout time

So if you didn't already know, I'm a huge fan of Sweet Shoppe Designs.  Well,
they kicked off 2010 with a new challenge system - it's called
 Sweet Shoppe Porfolio.  It's got a ton of inspiring ideas to get you
scrapping.  For each one you do you get a certain amount of points.
Points earned are good towards a discount to the store.  The best
part is that you get to pick what challenges inspire you!  I really like it.
I have 18 points so far this month. 

I'm also participating in Log Your Memory.  I have the bound version
of the book.  I can record every day moments and such to later 'jog my
 memory' and help me scrap. 

Here are some of my layouts from the past month (it's been awhile since
 I shared any - so there are quite a few!):

Template by Elizabeth for the Dec. Template Challenge at Dani Mogstad's
blog, Dani Mogstad - Softly Falling

This one was my top 10 songs in 2009. 

Eva Kipler It's All Good, Kristin Cronin-Barrow Rugged
Kristin Cronin-Barrow Mayberry, Sir Scrapalot Journalers - altered color
Nixon Freebie - Summer Joy,
The DigiChick - Every Life has a Story - altered color
This layout is for my "Book of Me."  I can't wait to see what it looks like
at the end of the year.

Traci Reed Hip to Be, Kristin Cronin-Barrow Daydream Believer

I used one of my most favorite KCB kits - Daydream Believer on this one!  It's
another page for my Book of Me.

I really loved creating this page - it was so much fun!  And if you know me, I love
my Nascar!

Journaling reads: There would be no stopping me. As soon as the green flag drops I'd be off. I'd pass you sitting in the stands or the infield faster than you could say "Jimmie's reign is over!" The checkered flag would be mine. My driver would even do a flip instead of a burnout, baby!

Misty Cato Look at Me Kit - green paper

Kristin Cronin-Barrow Daydream Believer - sparkles

This layout was if I could live anywhere, it would be.... Another layout for my
Book of Me.  This has been probably one of the most fun layouts I have had
designing in a long time!

Eva Kipler - It's All Good, Misty Cato - Shabby Orchard
Traci Reed - Bad Sewing Machine Basics, SF Anita

This layout was for a Log your Memory challenge.  I decided to scrap about
a favorite inspirational quote.

Journaling read:

I saw this little saying one day when I opened a snack-sized box of raisins for Anthony. I had never heard it before and immediately wrote it down. I look back at it occasionally, especially when I need a reminder that feeling good about myself will make those around me feel good too. If they know I do my best and try my hardest, they too will do the same. Back in 2007, I lost about 30 pounds. I remember feeling like I was on top of the world. I know that Chris was very proud of me. Unfortunately, I gained all of it back and then some when I was pregnant with Anthony. I have been struggling to lose the weight over the last year and a half. I look back to this little raisin box thought on occasion to remind myself that if I try my hardest, I know that one day (hopefully sooner than later) I’ll feel that same “on top of the world” feeling I felt a few years ago.

This layout will be fun to look at in a few years and see how my thoughts
have changed throughout the day.

Kristin Cronin-Barrow – “in” alpha, notebook paper – All About Him
Kristin Cronin-Barrow – “day” alpha – Mayberry
Kristin Cronin- Barrow – “thoughts” alpha, dirt spill – Rugged
Kristin Cronin-Barrow – fly – Party Out Back
Libby Weifenbach – “A” alpha – I just wanna be okay
Julie Billingsley – Background paper, blue frame, snowflakes – Frost Bite
Mandabean – Stressed Out Date Stamp
The DigiChick – paper people – Every Life has a Story
Fee Jardine – “what” tag , squiggly arrow – As If
Misty Cato – watercolor spills
Melissa Bennett – boy tag – Boy Crazy
Haynay Abboy freebie off internet – Sleep tight word art
Eva Kipler – beautiful life tag, pin – It’s All Good

I have been waiting for an opportunity to scrap these photos from 2006!

Lastly, this page is going to be fun to look at too - it's part of the portfolio
challenge and every month we get to scrap what it looks like outside from
the same perspective/view.  I love seeing the seasons change.

Dani Mogstad - Chill Out

Oh and one more thing - I saw a link to Sugar Frog Fonts late last week and had to check it out.  Your handwriting made into a font for you for FREE.  I love FREE stuff.  Did I say it was FREE?  Anyway, I had mine made and you can go HERE to download my font!   It's SF Jackie.  :) :)

So anyway, thanks for looking.  Happy Scrapping!
