I did it!!!

I scrapbooked last night. woohoo. With everyone being so sick over the holidays I never thought I'd get some one on one time with my room. I was up until 2am scrapbooking. Could have gone longer but knew I would regret it today. I got a few layouts done. Here is one to share.
The lace cardstock (stars) and the letters for "running!" are not SU!. The rest is. I used my white ink to smear a background on the kraft cs. I punched a star out of RHR cs which matched the lace cs and a smaller start out of the pp. Also punched the curly label out of pp and added a piece of scrap RHR and faux stitched over them. I used the Rough Edges alphabet for the rest of the title. Love how it turned out. The pic was also a total fluke when I took it (over a year ago) but knew this is what I wanted to do with it.
I also wanted to share this awesome journal my friend Tanya gave me for Christmas. I love journals and have tried to keep them before but it never lasts too long. Hopefully this will be a better year for journaling. I'm also going to leave it out on my desk to continually remind me. I've entered something everyday so far so I'm doing great. I know it won't always be everyday, but hopefully the important things get written down. Like this -40 degree weather!!!
Until next time...

Love that picture and how you scrapbooked it, Anne!
Very nice journal, too. Good luck with that-- I'm much better at journaling on layouts than in a journal.

I found that it was easier to keep a journal if you told yourself you didn't have to write every day. Of course it's been 5 years since I've kept a journal and I have a habit of burning mine once I'm done them so no one can use them against me LOL. It's thereputic to get everything out and on paper but I don't want it to haunt me.

Love your layout! Such a true picture of that little man! A snippet of real life caught on film.
