01/02/13 - And so it Begins...

Happy 2nd day of the new year! 
I started off the new year right by creating a new layout yesterday! 
I figured it was appropriate for my first layout of the year to be about my resolutions so I created this:

Along with creating a layout on the first day of the year I decided to start right in on the challenges!
This layout was partly inspired by the following blogs:
Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - which is challenging its players to create a layout regarding new years resolutions...
ScrapFIT -  which is challenging it's players to use stars on their layout.


Also I am still challenging myself to use up my old stash. I put a big dent in my stash last year, yay,   and this layout Is a great start for this year as almost all the items on here are at least 2 years old.
Also, all the paper minus the BG piece, is from my scraps-stash.

 I'm hoping this is a sign of things to come...a scrappy-productive year!


  1. Adorable! And what a great idea to scrap your goals like that. Doubly cool that you used older stuff from the stash.

  2. Doreen - you have worked with this paper very well!! Gorgeous layout!! Loving how you have added the circle and then the stars so that it all worked together with the background - very clever.
