Happy New Year!!

Wow, 2010! Sounds so weird. We've been having just the best Christmas vacation relaxing with the kids, visiting with good friends and family, going to the movies and our first Sea Dogs game with the boys. It's been the best vacation...very low key and stress free.

I haven't scrapbooked in ages, but some girls I know are posting their top 9 layouts of 2009 so I thought I would join in the fun and do it too. So, in no particular order here are my 9 faves:



So, I realize I have more fave layouts of B than the boys, but let's face it, it's more fun to scrap with pretty, girly things :) I'll try to do more of the boys this year.

Do you have any resolutions? I really want to finally learn to use my sewing machine. Need to clean my scrap room up first though! I'd also like to try to drink more water. I find at the end of the day I'm parched and when I look back on it, I've hardly had anything to drink. I'm always catering to the kids and forget to get stuff for myself, haha! I'm sure there's more I should do, but that's all I can think of for now.

My DT term at Treasured Scrapbooking was up in December. I'm sad to leave the team but look forward to just participating in challenges from the new DT and of course hanging out on the boards and in the gallery. Thanks to Leslie and Erin for everything!

There's lots of fun coming at LCOM in 2010 so be sure to check out the boards often! I know we've already got a 52 pick up sketch challenge in the works. Do one layout each week for the whole year and admire the album you have at the end! How fun!!
