I scrapped!!

Hey look! I scrapped. It's been a while, but I had to post a new "My Story Matters" challenge at SM yesterday, so I had to make some time to scrap.

{credits here}

I hope lots of you will come scrap this challenge with me. I'm pretty sure we're only about 6 weeks away from finishing this "My Story Matters" challenge series. No one is doing them anymore (I had zero participation in December - sad huh?), but I'm determined to finish the series for my own personal book!! Even if not one person enters.

A couple more things. I'm SO EXCITED to say that I'm going to be SPEED SCRAPPING on Wednesday night (with host Jami)! I haven't done a Speed Scrap in forever. And I can't wait to join in once again. I hope to see LOTS OF YOU there too.

And last but not least - I wanted to share a few photos from my New Year's Eve celebration! My brother and sister in law invited us over to their house and we had a nice quiet evening playing games, eating snacks and then watching fireworks from the valley below out their window! It was quite a nice view from their place. Then we stayed VERY LATE playing Banangrams. We were all hooked. We couldn't stop playing. It was such a fun, casual, relaxing New Year's Eve. Just how I like it.

Thanks so much for inviting us over Christian and Marci! We had a great time ringing in 2010 with you guys.

Alrighty - I gotta get back to work now! TTFN


  1. What fun pics! Looks like you guys had a great NYE. And, I just wanted to say that although I'm new to SM, I LOVE your "My Story Matters" challenges! My only problem is finding all my old photos!

  2. I'm so sad to hear that no one participated in My Story Matters challenge last month. I love that challenge! Maybe it was because December was such a busy month. I'll have to go look at the challenge this week and see if I can get a layout done. Your layout about Lagoon is really cool. It brought back a lot of memories to me about going there and getting pictures taken.

  3. great layout and pics!

  4. Aww, that's sad that there's only 6 weeks left for the My Story Matters challenge! I really love them, I always try to do them, unless it's just a subject that works for me (like the Dec one.) I never went anywhere when I was in HS, lol, but I'm still trying to think of something I can do for that challenge. Sometime I need to go back and do the older challenges, since I found a ton of pics from my childhood after the challenges started!

  5. I have been MIA at Scrapmatters for SUCH a long time & a speed scrap sounds SOOOO tempting. Dare I? Also, I love the western Lagoon pics. I have a few that could be a fun subject to scrap & you have just lit my inspiration a'blaze! hehe

    PS I love your New Years Pics-you and Josh Smoochin is my fav!!

  6. I love the my story matters challenges. I just wasn't up for it in Nov or Dec. Plus my early years were not so happy and coming up with something to scrap about that wasn't a nightmare was hard. I couldn't think of one night thing to say. But I'll make it a point to do it this month!
