Happy Monday everyone,

OK so I know it's not the best and I'll work on a new one, but look what I own blinkie...It's over there on the right...see it....I'll be making a new one, now that I know how to do it. The blinkie is for the 12 month layout challenge, you just click and it will take you to the challenges so you can upload your project...check out the ones who have already submitted their layouts. Great work.

Today I thought I would show you a quick video of a journal/calendar that I made. I bought one of the calendar planner refills and made my own cover. Sorry I don't have pictures, I left my calendar at work :)

I'm off today since I worked yesterday, so while the house is nice and quiet I'm going to start filming the Tags Bags Boxes and More series that I'll be posting next week :)

Have a great Monday,

Michael's Haul-Cricut Carts 9.99

Hi Everyone
I was trying so hard to stick to my no craft shopping plan for January. It's only the 7th of Jan. and I blew it...but I couldn't help it.....Arlene, Bona, and Jo who I get the pleasure of being on the Lindy Stamp Gang design team with enabled me with videos of what they found at Michaels...So I had to go....and boy I'm glad I did....

Recollections has a set of embellishments that are so much like Prima. I think I heard somewhere that Prima may be the manufacturer of the Recollections embellies (it could have been a dream though)....anyway mom and I did a quick trip to M's last night and this morning after a plow truck who thought it was best to remove the dusting of snow off the streets with the plow at 5am I decided to get up and make a haul video....Look what I found....Cricut Carts for 9.99....Sale ends tomorrow....

Here's a quick video on my haul. Not everything on my desk is from my shopping trip. I've been busy organizing and stuff......

Have a great weekend.

12 Month Layout Challange

Hi Everyone,
Last week when I put up on my blog requests for video ideas someone (I'm so sorry I can't find the email with who suggested this but I wanted to say Thank you for the great idea) suggested a monthly layout either single, double or even a mini album. One of my goals for 2011 is to actually start and finish a whole years worth of scrapbooking. So I printed out all my pictures for 2010 and I plan to scrap all of last year.

So here's the challenge to you....Every month somewhere around the beginning of each month I will post a video tutorial of my completed scrapbook page for that month, you can either link your completed layout down below, or if you make videos on YouTube you can click HERE to respond to my video with your completed layout.

I thought this would be a great way for us to motivate each other and have some fun.

Here's mine

You can link your project here
