So, at the beginning of 2008, I set some scrapbooking goals and since this is the last day of 2008, I guess I need to evaluate how I did. My goals were to create 300 pages and to finish 2007. I did not accomplish either! I failed, but not miserably, at least. I was able 200 pages, which is really pretty impressive since I think I only did 40 in 2007. I am also just about 4 pages from finishing 2007. I was really pretty much done with 2007 in the fall, but didn't print enough pictures for what I was doing, so, I printed the pictures but then didn't finish the pages. I also did some other projects which I didn't specify for goals like about 50 cards, some altered notebooks and jars for teachers gifts. So, even though I didn't accomplish everything I had hoped to do, I still feel pretty dang good about all I DID accomplish!
Obvioulsy, I need to re-evaluate and change up my goals a bit for 2009. So, I have decided that I will set my goals a bit lower. I am going to shoot for 200 full size pages, these can be 8 1/2 X 11 or 12 X 12. I also want to do 50 "mini" pages for my photo carousel, these are 4 X 6 (they are so much fun!), 50 cards and 5 altered items. I also want to finish the name books that I started LAST year! (yep, I started them in 2007, sad, I know), they are all cut and bound, I just need to embellish them. so, looking at this list now, maybe I didn't set my goals lower, they just may be a bit higher! But, I do think I can accomplish them, if all goes well with the year. Oh! I almost forgot! I also want to do better at keeping my blog updated, I want to actually take pictures of my finished projects and get them up here. Phew! That's a lot to do in 2009!
I wish you all a safe New Year's Eve. Please remember, don't drink and drive! Here's to a happy, healthy and productive 2009!

Inside front, just to be sure everyone knows what it's for!:
You can't really see it, but I stamped around all the edges of the inside pages with the same color ink pad, just to add some whimsy. Wish it would show up in the pics!
So, I started a project, finished it, took pictures and got them onto my blog! It's been a long time since I've accomplished that much!

I have done several pages in that time, but, I haven't taken a single picute of them! Such a bad girl, I know!
Our family has been busy enjoying football season. Randy is in 8th grade, he plays the center and is also on the D-line. I thought I would upload a few pics here.
In this game he was a captain. Always an honor.
I just love this picture, the look on his face is priceless!
Okay, so that's all I've picked for today!
Thanks for looking!

The rules of the game: Each player answers the questions themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know that they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answers
Ten years ago: I was a wife and mother to one boy, who was 3. We lived in a small trailer. I sold Stampin' Up! And also worked for my in-laws at their packing plant.
Five things on today's to do list: The same things that are on my to do list every weekday! 1. Laundry 2. diapers 3. lunch 4. diapers 5. dinner
Snacks I enjoy: potatoe chips, m&m's
Places I have lived: Montana and only Montana, it's the best place to live, so why leave?
I just realized that I live a pretty boring life, but, that's okay with me!
5 people, not sure I can do it, but, I will try!

So, I have managed to do 6 pages in July. Three of them were for the baby book. But, the other 3 were really fun, as usual, they are all pretty similar, different, but the same! This was a fun snowball fight that all my guys had after a really late spring storm last March, like 2007 last March! The papers are Basic Grey, I bought them from Archivers when we were in Denver last fall. I only bought one of each of the 3 double sided papers, so this was a good way to use them. The design came to me one night and I really like the way they turned out, I just wish I could figure out how to thread my sewing machine, because I think that sewing would look great around the circles. Ah well, maybe some day!
This is for the family book, I also used Fancy Pants stamps and some stickles!
Brandon's book: No stamps or stickles, but some crystal "icons" I've had for awhile and just now used.
Randy's book: Used the stamps and the "icons" but no stickles. See? different, but the same...
Well, thanks for looking, hopefully it won't be another month before I get this updated again. I am almost done with 2007, which was one of my goals, I just need to finish the wedding pics and also the pics from the Packers game last fall. I also set a goal of 300 pages this year, I am at 158, so I would say that I am right on track, I really hope I can do it!

Here is a two pager for the baby gift album. One month. I am going to do all of the holidays as well, but, I am struggling with whether I should match the colors that I have been using (pink, yellow, green) or use the colors of the holiday (red, white & blue for the 4th of July...) any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated!
I am really struggling with getting good pictures lately. It is gloomy here again today, and I just can't get a good quality picture. But, I have set a goal for myself not to let the pages stack up, to get the pics taken and posted on here as well as the challenge thread on the cricut site. So, I guess it's as good as it's going to get for now!

This will be the first of many pages from my youngest BIL's wedding last August. You've seen the pic of Brandon before, I just love it! The page is a little plain, but, I think I will leave it. This is for the family book, also.
This is for Brandon's book. The guys getting ready for the wedding. I already posted the 2 pager for the family book.
I have one more page from May, but, I haven't even taken the picture yet! Hopefully I will get it taken and posted this week. I would really like to get back on track for June. I have a baby's first year book that I would really like to finish to take to the hospital when the baby is born, she's due at the end of this month! I better get moving!

This is from by BIL's wedding also. It was kind of a funny day. The rental shop didn't include little Cash's pants (he's the cutie in the pic second from left). Now, the wedding was 45 miles from the rental shop, but my oldest BIL happened to be staying in Billings where the shop was, so, we called him up. Anyways, Clinton started joking that he was going to say that he didn't have his pants either, he joked about it for about 15 minutes, then he said they really DID forget his pants! Of course, we all thought he was still joking, but no, they really DID forget his pants! Now, remember he is 6'8", we prayed they just didn't pack them, and they didn't! Older BIL, Nick, got yet another call! In the end, the rental shop messed up 3 different things, as they also didn't match one of the vests! I never found out, but, I hope my MIL got some of her money back! This is also for the family book!
And finally. the last of the sports pictures from 2007! Basketball for Randy's book! Pretty simple, but, again, done! I love the epoxy embellishments, thanks, Tammy!
Okay, I'm hoping that May is more productive than April was, but, my hopes aren't too high about it since we are so busy with Brandon playing T-Ball.
Thanks for looking! It feels so great to have some pages posted again!

My neighbors were robbed a couple of weeks ago. By someone who, apparantly, had been watching them, and had their schedule down. Scary. My life is totally scheduled.
A bus and a pick-up collided, a 7 year old girl was thrown out of one of the bus windows and killed.
Not to mention all of the car wrecks, people taken due to illnesses while they are too young. People loosing jobs due to a shaky economy and ever rising gas prices really putting the pinch on todays families.

Mom and Dad pages, I used rubons and some vellum quotes.
Grandparents. Love, love, love the Fancy Pants stamps!
For the new family! And some other random pictures. I had fun playing with the patterned papers on these
There is another 2 pages, but they are super simple with no embellishments and 3 spots on each page for 4x6 pics. It would only let me upload 5 pics, so, I'm just not going to post them! The picture came out blurry anyways!
