My word of the Year

I was playing with a sketch of Ali's at Sketches: Creatively Yours, and had the darnest time fiquring out what to do with a 6X12 sketch.... so I thought, why not make my "word of the year" more visible to me daily... so I made this and it is in my scrappy space! Hopefully it will inspire me to find the "peace" in my life!

Hugs... Helen

February Goals to Self!

Ali at Sisterhood of Scrap asked us today if we had any goals for February, and I thought.. what a great idea! So I made this! I intend to do one monthly and at the end of the year (minus January) I will have hopefully achieved the goals I have set for myself! Wish me luck!

The 3 Georges

This layout was done for a challenge at "Mission Create" I used stitching, rub-ons and a curved title! I think I will submit it to "The Scrappiest Sketch Blog" as well, as it follows Liz's wonderful sketch #47! Oh, and it can be found at SOS for Deanne's Soup of the Day Challenge from Jan. 9th! Great to be so organized!!

I had a lot of fun doing this layout of "The 3 Georges". I used Basic Grey "Lime Rickey", Bazzill CS and CB, Sassafras CB number, Little Yellow Bicycle journal tag, and a few misc. things I had laying about!

Thanks for looking!
And have a great Sunday!

"Squeaky, Squeaky"

This layout is of my little Sasha doing what she does best... getting into her Christmas presents before anyone wakes up! I put the presents under the tree this past year at 6am.... and at 6:30, I heard a "squeak, squeak", got up, and sure enough... Sasha had found 2 of her presents that were under the tree! She gets so excited about presents, she trembles! What a hoot.

S:CY Sketch #31

Check out Ali's site, "Sketches: Creatively Yours" for this wonderful sketch!
Here was my interpretaion of it!

All About Me... Challenge #9

We tend to scrapbook and document all the wonderful things that happen in our life, our wonderful families, our happy thoughts, and our wonderful lives.
But sometimes, things are not always so wonderful!

The challenge at "All About Me" for this week is "What makes You Angry". This was a hard layout to do for me, as I am so very angry with my DS. I love hime to bits, and would do anything for him, but I sure do not like him much right now.

Check out this site, as it is a site that makes you scrapbook about "YOU", and that is important too!

Thanks for peeking!
