12/31/12 - I Love Challenges

Happy New Years Eve to you!
I haven't blogged too much lately...
I was on vacation for 11 days and I don't blog much when I am home so I kinda got out of practice I guess.
Well, this is the last day of 2012!
We survived!! Yay!
It has been a hard year but it's over and I am looking forward to 2013 being much, much better!
I would like to dedicate my last blog post of the new year to sharing lots of layouts as well as an "obsession"...
I'm sure that by reading my blog you have discovered that I love participating in challenges!
Whether they be DT assignment challenges, Blog challenges, or challenges, I am always eager to play!
I like how they give you different ideas and even sometimes help you step out of your comfort zone.
And for those challenges that don't do either of those 2 things, I find they hold me "accountable" and so I make a commitment to scrap! Since I have been back to the scrapping world I have been more relaxed w/ my work, and I have noticed that I am enjoying the process and my layouts more because of this! I am also getting more done! Back in the day I was lucky to get 2 or 3 done a month. Now I am averaging about 8!
Despite it being a busy month, December was a good month for scrapping! And I would like to share w/ you all the layouts I created in December thanks to challenges:
