Another Try

Alright I failed, or had an epic fail as my kids would say, on last year's resolution.  So here it goes again...
In an effort to become a blogger and deal with my every increasing pile of pictures that need to be scrapbooked, I am going to try to create at least two layouts a month.  A month?  I would like to say that I am going to try and create a layout a week, but let's not set the bar too high.
One way I am going to make the time is by entering all those scrapbook challenges and weekly layout ideas that I view regularly.  I don't expect to become a design diva, but this is my way of setting a goal and finishing an album.

One site that I often visit is  They are having a layout contest that ends today at midnight CST.  The best part about this contest is that you just need to submit a layout you have made in the last two months.  I have done that, granted the pictures in the layout are from Spring 2010.  I am so deep in a hole, but I am determined to get out of it.

As you can see, my style is rather simple.  I like clean lines without too much fuss, but I did go a little overboard for me with the banner and stamping.  I used CTMH paper, Game On, for this layout.  The banners were made using the Art Philosophy Cartridge on my Cricut.  If you don't have Art Philosophy you need to get it through Close to My Heart. It is a crafter's dream.

Okay everyone, here it goes, another new year and a fresh beginning.


  1. Well, you picked a fine day to restart your blogging efforts, Kim--that being Friday, the 13th! You are still going strong (today is January 19), so luck is with you. Love this CTMH paper and what you have done with it is even better! Great start!!

    1. Thanks Kay. What is even better is that this second post was exactly one year after the first. I have definitely improved!!
