New projects

I just finished two projects. I think they turned out pretty good. The first is a small baby book made with a Maya Road Scalloped ring album. I think I am going to add a couple more touches to this album. It's going to be a great class. Also the papers are double sided. I used the sides of the paper that were kind of gender neutral but this could be totally frilled up for a girl or toned down for a boy.

My next project was a Valentine's Day explosion box. I told Debbie that if I was going to do another explosion box class we were going to make this one special. On this box the base layer has flip out panels and the middle layer is a clear acrylic sheet. Super COOL!!!
Now it's time to start thinking of ideas for March!

Happy New Year!!!

Normally I am not excited about a new but this year is different. I am glad 2008 is over. Don't get me wrong, 2008 wasn't a bad year - it just wasn't a great one. Like many years, 2008 had it's ups and downs but we made it through ok.

January has brought me a renewed sense of hope. I feel inspired. I feel like I can do something. Not sure what that something is but I know it will be great. This year will be the year Thomas & I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. This will be the year I turn the big 3 - 0!!!

I hope 2009 has something special in store for all us....
