Layout Sketch January

Tuesday, January 1, 2008

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! How is everyone this morning? I love New Years! Have you made any resolutions? I made a list on my birthday that I want to do achieve this year more goals than resolutions, which is totally the way I do things. I am happy to report I already achieved a couple of those and it's only the first of the year! One of the goals was to open a digital store, which I'm happy to say is DONE and OPEN! In fact I'll be hosting all the freebies from there in future (as the free download sites are acting a little flaky lately). So with that said here is this months layout sketch and the digital download is available in my store! (hehehe so fun to say that!). And everything in the store is on Sale until 14th January! 30% off!

This months sketch is based on a layout I did back in 2006. Back in 2006 when I did this layout I really didn't think things could get any better for me in regards to scrapbooking. I'd reached the goals I'd set for myself. But as always I set new goals, pushed myself and stepped that little bit further. As I sit here reflecting on the last 2 years I could never imagine being in the position that I'm in. Yet here I sit, making bigger goals. Who knows what else 2008 has in store?

I whipped up this layout this morning as I had wanted to do a NEW layout for the NEW year, with the NEW template/sketch. So as a consequence I was a little later uploading the blog today, and you know what? That's ok by me! This also means I get to count this for my "get a LOAD of this" layout for today! Yeah!
