But I can't show you the layouts right now because ScrapMatters is having some server problems. They are working on it though so as soon as I can get in there I have a bunch of stuff to show you! Until then though, here is the freebie:

I made it based on one of the layouts I did this week using a gorgeous new kit by Chelle's Creations and Jeni Hopewell called Sweet Thing. Here is the layout:

First P365 layout!

Well I have my first P365 layout done, it was a lot of fun taking the pics for. Pictures I might not normally have taken. Check it out:

Day 1: We went to the Madarin for New Years Dinner. It was packed, crazy packed. But good food. The waitress was a little bit nasty but that was the only downfall. The kids loved getting to eat whatever they wanted to from the buffet. McKayla basically skipped right to dessert. LOL Ben ate a ton of seafood! He is so adventurous when it comes to eating. Especially for an eight year old. He even tried calamari and loved it! He tried to convince me to try some.....but I'm not so adventurous, LOL.

Day 2: McKayla's dancing was still closed for the holidays so we all got to go to Ben's basketball today. He did awesome! He sunk two baskets and his team tied the game. That was quite an accomplishment since they've lost them all so far. LOL I had to sneak out the camera to take his picture. Ben insists that when the camera is there he doesn't score, he thinks it's a bad luck charm. Well obviously as long as he doesn't know it's there, it's just fine!

Day 3: I caught McKayla putting on a little rock concert in her bedroom. For Christmas she got a stage and microphone/headset from my brother and sister-in-law. She looked so cute rockin' out amidst all her barbies and stuffed animals....

Day 4: Back to school! It was horrible trying to get the kids up this morning! They slept in a lot over the holidays. After they dragged themselves out of bed I just had to take pics of them, half asleep, eating their breakfast. They looked exactly like I felt, it was back to work today for me too!

Day 5: "Mommy, want me to show you my tapioca?" I must have looked as confused as I was because McKayla immediately started explaing, "Mommy! Remember? Tapioca! Where you do this......" That's when I figured out she was talking about yoga. She had been watching me do yoga on the Wii Fit. She makes me laugh, what a cutie pie.

Day 6: First homework of 2010. Multiplication facts. Some things never change..... 'nuff said. LOL

Day 7: I signed up for the secret santa at ScrapMatters and my gift came today. My ss was Michelle of MickeyB Designs. She sent a beautiful journal that she had recovered and a matching pen. The journal was titled, "Ha! Our Kid's Funniest Moments". (I will have to add the Tapioca story to it). She also sent Dove Mint Chocolates and Reese' Peanut Butter Christmas Trees!! I was so excited. I can't stop touching the journal, it has definitely inspired me to try some hybrid stuff. and mmmm.....chocolate......

So that's week one! As for my other project Fiona goals...we won't discuss that right now. *sigh* All I can say is it was REALLY easy to excercise while I was off of work. Now that I'm back, well...check back next week when I am sure to bring you better news. Just need to work on my scheduling a bit. LOL

Oh and if you are doing P365 or anything similar, let me know! Leave your blog in my comments so I can check it out. I'm always looking for inspiration. And if you need inspiration, check out ScrapMatters P365 challenges, they have some great freebies and ideas. And if you need some awesome supplies, check out this section of the ScrapMatters store! See you soon!

Project 365/ Resolutions Update and Another Freebie!!

Hi everyone! Well I am here to update you on all my resolutions....

I have been taking my P365 pics, daily, as promised. Maybe someone can help me out though, am I supposed to blog each pic everyday, or wait til the end of the week, scrap the page with seven pics on it, and then blog about it? Anyone know? Hmmm...

As for the other resolutions, I have organised one room so far this week, my daughter's. Her room was a crazy mess, and we still hadn't opened all her Christmas present boxes. So I switched up her room a bit to give her more space, and opened the rest of the boxes that needed opened, and found space for it all. It's a work in progress but it is def. better than it was. And it makes me feel better to look at it. LOL

I have excersised for one half hour each day since Christmas!! Well except for yesterday. I have a cold and actually had a fever with it yesterday. So no excersise yesterday, but otherwise I've been good. I've even lost 1.2 kg. I should look that up and see what that is in pounds. Cuz I don't have a clue about kgs.....

I have been eating somewhat healthy, but still making my way through all the Christmas chocolate so until that is gone, I still need to work on this resolution. I think I still have about half of a Terry's Chocolate Orange left. LOL

I have been getting lots of sleep. But the kids have really been cooperating and sleeping in late in the morning. So I've been able to stay up late and still get my eight hours. Reality starts tomorrow; back to school, back to work. I will have to watch my bedtime tonight....

And that leaves me with my resolution to drink more water. *Aargh!* I can't!! This is my hardest resolution. I just don't like it! I think I spend most of my life dehydrated. I just don't drink very much. And when I do, it's tea. And it's so freaking cold outside today, I can't imagine drinking water right now! So I have not been good with this resolution. Any tips for me? I think most people like water, I'm the only weirdo who doesn't....... *sigh* Still need to work on this one.

So that's my update, how are yours going?

Oh yeah, I've got another freebie for you! A template:

It's based on this layout I did using Chelle's Creations' Homemade kit:

Click on the preview to download...enjoy!

Class starts tomorrow!!

I'll be back later with my resolution update but just wanted to pop in and remind you all that Chelle's class starts tomorrow at Scrapmatters. Journaling is definitely something I struggle with, so many times I end up leaving it out. But I want my kids to look back at my pages and instead of just seeing a picture, I want them to see a story, an emotion, my voice. I can't wait to get started tomorrow! Check it out:

And if you sign up for the class you get this awesome mega kit with it:

This is one of my favourite kits ever, it has felt, it has doodles, it has an amazing colour scheme, it's just awesome. But it's exclusive to the class, so only Chelles students get to have this kit!

I'll be back soon, but for now head right over here to sign up. It's going to be so much fun!
