And the very last....

Roz designed this layout in the swap I was in. As soon as I saw it, I knew the pictures of my grandson Peyton would work great! I'm not counting these as part of the challenge but I thought it would be a great visual to end the challenge with.

Thanks, ladies. This was a lot of fun! We could continue on for next year?

My final tally was 121 Pages for 2010! I really feel like I accomplished something and got caught up on my scrapbooking!!

Happy New Year!

The finale Part 3

The finale Part 2

I love the way this 18 from 1 lays out. More embellishments would have been nice but I was afraid that because of the busy-ness of the paper, anything else would have been lost.

The finale!!! Part 1

I have had such a great time doing this challenge! I agree, Jenn, let's do something for next year too! These pages are done using the 18 from 1 paper pack. The subject is a trip to England when I joined my husband who was there on business! We had a great time driving all over northern England! I finished these earlier this year and thought I had already posted them! I was very excited to see that I hadn't posted them because this finishes my challenge!!

Thank you all so very much for your complements ~ they have inspired me, challenged me, and made me feel warm and fuzzy! What great scrapperfriends we can make!!

Happy New Year, everyone! On to next year's challenge!!!

My Grandparents

My grandparents played a huge part in my young life. I would like to put together a heritage album someday; hopefully these pages would be a great starting point.

This first layout of my grandmother at age 18 and my grandfather's prize car were created using a kit from In a Pinch Designs. The next layout is a CTMH paper pack Grace using the Childhood Portraits stamp set. I have since put a journal piece in detailing my wonderful memories of summers at my grandparents home.

Thanks for looking.

I love this face!!

This is my grandson Kein. He is 7 and has autism. He doesn't usually like anything at all on his head but seemed to know that these antlers were fun!

This picture was taken last Christmas; I did the layout for a workshop earlier this year! I love this paper pack!

I'd better get busy...

...doing up my last layouts! This is the perfect snow day to do just that!! I have been busy working on some things but I can't post them coz they are Christmas presents! Soooooo technically I'm done my challenge....but
this is too much fun!!

These two layouts feature my great friend Roz and celebrates our fun/crazy days of going to the Nottawasaga Inn for scrapbook weekends with our friend Nancy. The hostess always had some wonderful, fun themes for dress up on Friday nights. Always such a great time!!!

I'm getting there!! 20 Layouts left!!

Wow!! I can't believe this 120 pages for 2010 challenge is in its last month! I've had so much fun and have been challenged in so many different ways. I've loved cruising every ones blogs and reading about their scrapbook lives, their families, vacations, and their creativity. This was such a great idea! I'm thinking about next years challenges. There are a few things I want to accomplish. What do you think, Roz?? Can we come up with a couple of exciting challenges for next year??

This first layout is from a kit that I bought quite a few years ago without a plan in mind! But then my daughter got engaged this year and so here you go. The journal spot is from CTMH. I have since written their engagement story on it. I love this pictures!

This layout is all about Peyton's birth. The paper is very old CTMH b&t paper in Heavenly Blue. The embellishments are from a variety of places.

This paper is My Minds Eye and Crate Paper. I love their paper for my little boys layouts. I used CTMH window charms to act as bubbles.
100 out of 120!! Yay!!!
