For my gift I decided to create some cute Christmas Subway Art using Storybook Creator Plus. I saw a similar idea but it was made into a pillow but I knew it would be easy to replicate on paper using Storybook Creator Plus.
I created individual text boxes for each of the words and then chose a fun font.
I framed it in an 8 x 10 frame - a fun and easy Christmas decoration!

Thanks to all my fun ladies who joined me this year. I always enjoy spending time with you. We had amazing weather and lots of sun.
What could be better than looking at this while scrapping away!!
An amazing view from the house.
And at night we got to look at this.
And we even found time to walk along the beach and stick our toes in the sand.
Who wants to join me next year??

Better Mood Enhancement Than Chocolate, Alcohol, or Music
The next time you need a mood boost, forget chocolate. Forget the wine and mood music, too. Because researchers have discovered something else that works even better. And best of all, it’s calorie-free, doesn’t require exercise, and can be done almost anywhere. What is it? Looking at personal photos.
Researchers at the United Kingdom’s Open University examined how much people’s mood rose after eating chocolate, sipping an alcoholic drink, watching TV, listening to music, or looking at photos.
They found that the music and chocolate left people’s moods unchanged. Alcohol and TV gave a slight lift. But the winner by a long shot was viewing personal photos, which made people feel significantly better.
So next time you feel down in the dumps, pull out the photo albums. Or, if you’re technologically minded, you can load your favorite photos onto a digital viewer that you can take with you anywhere you go.

For the past 19 years, every year, one of my New Year's resolutions has been to get caught up on ALL my albums/scrapbooks.
I think I have done a pretty good job during the last 19 years having completed over 120 scrapbooks/digital books but I am not completely caught up.
Once again, this year, I have set the same goal.
I am going to approach it a little different this year though. I have made a list of all the albums/years that need to be completed and I am going to share that list with you.
I am expecting you to hold me accountable and I plan on reporting in to you on a regular basis how I am doing. As you can see from the photo in the previous post my Project Picture has taken over my dining room - no dinner parties for us for a while!!
So here is a list of the projects I need to finish in order to be caught up.
I have divided them up into Traditional, Picfolio or Digital Projects.
2005-2009 - college years, post mission (I have given up on the fact that any of my children are going to take over their own albums!)
1984 (yes I have never done his photos from the first year of his life, don't ask me why, I don't know!)
2007 - 2009 - college years, post mission
Freshman year college
1989 (her first year isn't done either, I must have a problem with those first year photos!)
China YA Trip
Australia YA Trip
OK - so that should keep me busy for awhile.
I am starting at the top and getting Logan's album caught up first. I will do the scrapbook part and he will have to do the journaling though!
I am using the technique I shared here to help me work quick and fast. I have also committed to working at least 15-30 minutes a day on my current project - so thus the mess in the dining room!!
So what's your New Year's scrapbooking goal? I'd love to hear. Just leave a comment and let me know.
