New Year's Resolution Blog Hop

New Years Hop

Welcome to the "New Year's Resolutions" Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature our New Year's Hopes, Dreams, and Commitments!!  You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- From decorations to gift ideas and more, we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!

We can guarantee LOTS of inspiration for this event... So let's get hopping!!  If you've hopped over from Claire then you are in the right place!!  If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Lynda's blog...

For the hop today, I've created .......
This is actually a layout about the year 2006 that I put together for my grandson, Nolan.  I have not been one to do resolutions because I never keep them.  In fact I often joke that my New Year's Resolution is that I resolve to not make any..:)

However, I liked how this layout turned out and I think it looks very New Years even tho it is the year in retrospect.  I received a lot of the embellishments in a swap several years ago and I wanted to start using my stash.  The circle, of course, is an altered CD. That should tell you how long I have been holding on to some of this stuff.  lol.  While the 2006 tag looks like it has some greenish blue tones it is actually iridescent and it grabbed the flash when I took the picture. On the left is a month by month highlight of events in 2006.

You know, as I look over this I think I have come up with a resolution!!!!  I resolve to use lots and lots of my stash!!  I resolve to look after myself more since I tend to forget about me while I am caretaking for everyone else. I resolve to get my cruise pics done and my gsons kindergarten pics done.'s that for starters??

Now for the fun "blog candy" -  Please leave a comment, I so enjoy reading all opinions expressed, as well as leave a comment on all the blog participants' blogs!!! One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift card to Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or online shopping place of their choice to be drawn at the end of January if you leave a comment about your resolutions or intentions for 2012 on her blog!  

Thank you again for checking out my project...  Now follow the links below and remember to visit all the stops for MAXIMUM ideas and LOTS OF FUN!!
