Happy New Year!

So I have been a crafty little person the past day or so...have done more in 2 days than the whole past year. I finished a mini book from the summer of 2008. I also completed a bunch of pages for Lila's scrapbook. The summer book was traditional and Lila's was digital. I sure do love paper, but I am finding the digital thing much less time consuming, much less of an ordeal to start/stop/complete. Which in my case, with life being quite busy and hectic, it seems that I may just have to change to digital to get anything done. I don't want to be one of those people who has all their photos in a box in the basement or I should say sitting on my hard drive, not printed or viewable. Last year I thought hard about doing the project 365...taking a picture for each day of the year. I failed miserably when on I think Jan 3rd I realized that I hadn't even started...so I quit before I even started. This year, I pledge to make it....which may just be a possibility as I have already gotten my first 2 days taken. Anyway, here is the Jan 1st picture taken 12:01ish at home. I changed it to blown out black and white cause it was a terrible photo and I like that my face is hard to see (it was an especially terrible picture of me =). Poor Lila was not part of the festivities (if you can call it that...one prominent member of the family had a nasty gastrointestinal bug) as she was sleeping.

And finally, the first of the layouts from my scrapbooking extravaganza. I blocked out my abs of steel as I felt weird showing a naked belly picture to the unknown masses.
