A challenge

I was challenge by Elísabet on scrapbook.is (an icelandic chatboard) to create a lo with:
1) a pic of me
2) baby colors (pastel colors basically)
3) no flowers and no ribbons
4) no oval design

So I combined this months project over at Snapshot of my life 2009 to Elísabet's challenge. I really love Anna's blog and what she is doing so I want to try to do this project of hers. This first project was about recording my routine. Since I work outside the home I wanted to focus on my Home routine. What I do on the week days before and after work. I used a sketch from Snapshot of my life blog.

This is a LO I did the other day with last years Christmas card photo. I'm not sure I like it enough but it will have to work. Thanks to my dear friend Donna over at HSS who "stiched" the pics together for me.

Happy New Year


This has been a strange year so far. My computer got "sick". We have a cat in the house but we can't keep it since I'm showing allergic reactions. This has broken my heart. Sunneva is so in love with him and actually I also in love with him. He is the sweetest little thing.
Anyhow I have done 2 LO's this year that I want to share. First is the Title page for my Album in a Year project. The text is from The Lord of the Rings and it says: ...the only thing you can control is the what you do with the time you are given. Gandalf the White says this in Two Towers and I just could not agree with this more. My plan is to do a 2-pager for each month.

This is a LO for my BOM album. My goals for the year 2009. I have written them down only for myself to see. Two things I'm going to focus on this year getting fitter. Losing the aweful weight I have been putting on the last 3 1/2 years. Second goal is a financial goal. I have written down an amount I want to have in the bank at the end of this year. We'll she how that one goes.
