Ringing in the New Year

Wow! I still can't believe we're onto a whole new year already. Our NYE was fun! We had dear friends of ours over who have a son the same age as Noah, so the kids had fun playing, and us adults had some dinner and drinks and played some games (Rockband being one of them - we're quickly becoming addicted ;-). Chloe went to sleep normal time, but we let Noah stay up until 2009, and he ended up going to sleep at 1am! He easily could have outlasted us, lol.

I have a few new layouts to share. This first one is a Fancy Pants layout. I uploaded it to TwoPeas on Tuesday and was excited to see that it was the featured layout that day :-)

This next layout is DT work for Create My Keepsake using the gooooorgeous January kit. This kit is seriously so pretty! Lots of Teresa Collins Crush mixed with Amy Butler. And I love the embellies and Jillibean letters in the kit!

Sooo, speaking of CMK's January kit, I am SO excited to tell you guys that I am continuing on the DT for another term. I am so grateful that I get to stay on - CMK has seriously become my online home - I love the people there and the kits are gorgeous! Lisa is making some changes to the DT, and we are shrinking down to six - four of us are staying on from the current DT, and she is adding on two more. The call ended two days ago, so I can not wait to see who will be joining us!! Good luck to those of you who entered :-)

Well, I wish you all the happiest of New Year's, and I hope 2009 is a great year for all of my blogging friends! :-)

Ohhh well I can see why that layout would be featured on 2Peas. How cool is that use of the pom pom trim?? I have to "steal" that from you :)

And I had to giggle to see that you handcut the exact same flowers from the K&Co Paper that I did (can't show my layout yet but yours is much better anyway...)

Happy New Year Chica
