New Year Challenge

I want to thank all of you who re-assured me that I was not alone. I am such a baby! lol I know my sisters read, but they don't count. hahah
I know there are people who stumble upon this blog, I just wondered if people even blog anymore? I know for me, it's a whole lot harder to post than write one quick sentence update on FB. I was pretty addicted to FB. I'm slowly trying to pull myself away. SO here I am, making a blogging comeback!

Ok, now, on to that challenge. I made a layout for American Crafts New Year's challenge. I decided to make a layout about the BIGGEST change coming this year. Our baby girl. I still can't believe that we are capable of making a girl. I prepared myself mentally for all boys. I had a boy name picked out. I was thinking of boy nursery themes. She certainly is a beautiful surprise!

I used Dear Lizzy and Enchanted papers, thickers and Cosmo Cricket mini letters. The journaling is tucked behind the picture on an office tag.

Anyone else joining their challenge? This is something I never do, I just don't have the time. BUT I had the papers on hand and I really wanted to scrap that picture. I'm just so excited!! Any girl name suggestions? I have NONE!

This is beautiful! You're going to rock the girl pages! :0)

I still blog way more than I facebook, but I just started doing the networked blogs thing so that every time I post on my blog it automatically posts a link on facebook. Love that cause I can do 2 in one!

I blog more than FB too. At least on my blog I can share my love for scrappin' and stampin' without people giving me the virtual eye rolls.

Congrats on the baby girl BTW. MY DD is about to turn 5 and I love her more each day, not matter how bad she acts in public at times. ;-)

That's a great layout--I love the pink headband on your daughter. lol.

I definitely use fb more than I blog, but one of my new year's resolutions was to blog everyday. It's worked so far. Okay, well, it's only been four days, but...! :)
