It's All About Me!

A few years ago I started an All About Me album as a challenge on a (now defunct) digital scrapbook site.  It actually closed in the middle of the project so I started my own.  That site also closed so the project never finished.  Interest in the topic popped up again on a Project Life Facebook group that I belong to so I posted my list there and someone suggested I post it outside of FB too so here I go.  You can see some of the pages I made by following the P52 label (or try this link P52).  Since I started the project on one site there are pages I did that are not on my list.  That project was pretty random and when I was designing it for the second site, I wanted something more linear - not just a bunch of non-related (but admittedly fun) pages about myself but rather an unfolding of my life that my kids might not otherwise know about..

Anyway, here is my list.  It isn't complete because it was supposed to be Project 52 and ended up being Project 14 but I do have more ideas so maybe I'll flesh that list out.  It is fun to go back and read the things I thought just 4 years ago so I imagine my kids would really like it in 20 years.

Enchanted by Growing Pains Scrapped

Tracy has a fun new kit out today called Enchanted. The colors are great and there are such cute elements – fairies, a castle, a frog and some great butterflies.

Don’t forget about the great matching cardstock and quickpages.


Here is my layout – my niece feeding my oldest son. Luckily I had this fun picture with pink since I love using pink in my layouts – which I rarely get to do with two boys.

I made you a 1440 x 900 desktop – just in time for July.

10-10-10 at DSDI and a Speed Scrap

Today kicks off the 10-10-10 event at DSDI. To kick off the holiday season and to wrap up 2010 they are having a 10-10-10 event. It runs from today through December 10th – so it will be over before you get too busy with holiday stuff. Every day there will be a different challenge having to do with a list of 10 things – 10 favorite memories, the top 10 current events, your 10 best pictures – you get the idea. The first one is to scrap what you consider to be your 10 Best Songs of 2010; it doesn’t have to be songs released in 2010, just songs you enjoyed in 2010. Hopefully I can think of a few that aren’t kid’s songs but, sadly, most of them will probably be from Snacktime by the Barenaked Ladies! What a fun way to wrap up 2010 - with a set of pages that reflect what was going on this year. And there are prizes!

There is also a speed scrap tomorrow, December 2 at 9pm EST, with a kit as a participation prize.

Black Friday "Retail Therapy" Blog Train

I'm glad you joined me on this Thanksgiving Day here in the US. For others it's just a normal workday but for me it's a day to enjoy our extended family and relax while eating way too much. It's also a day to plan my crazy shopping for Black Friday. I'm not one that *has* to be at a certain place at a certain time on Black Friday. I can usually find a few things I'd like to have and if they are still around when I get there, I'll pick them up. It's more a fun time with my bff and a break from the boys. In the shopping vein then, here is a quick page made from the great DSDI collab Retail Therapy. There is a coupon included in the download good towards the purchase of this kit so be sure to keep your eye out for that! I absolutely love this kit - the colors rock and the elements are so much fun!

The blog hop actually started at the DSDI blog but if you didn't start there, here is the list to get you back on track. We are all in different parts of the world so be patient if someone doesn't have their stuff posted yet. Thanks again for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
