January PageMaps!

What a way to bring in 2009! MY layout is one of the PageMaps examples for January! Isn't that exciting? I feel like a celebrity! It was very hard to keep this a secret for over a month! Here's my page!


I used Fancy Pants "About A Boy" goodies that I won from Paper Crafts magazine. I cut the title with my Expression. I sewed on some zig zag stitching. I added a big Prima, and on the bottom, I stamped an Autumn Leaves swirl stamp. To add some interest to the stamp, I colored it in with colored pencils and used gamsol to soften the look. I added some ribbon and ric rac. You can click on the page to see it larger!! I'm THRILLED that I got to work with this great sketch before anyone else got to see it!! Woohoo!! Thanks Becky Fleck! You rock!


Here's the amazing sketch! Take a look at all of the January PageMaps sketches. I'm especially thrilled, because when you load the January sketches, I'm the first one on the screen!! I'm just giddy with excitement!

Happy New Year my friends! I appreciate you all very much, and I cannot wait for an inspired and creative 2009! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats Carol!!! I love your layout! I think I need to give PageMaps a try! My project right now is organizing/purging my scrap room. So I'll hopefully do another blog candy soon! As soon as thats done, maybe I can get back to crafting. ;) I hope you and your wonderful family have a great year, too. I am so excited to see what this new year brings. It blows my mind that Aaron will be 3 and Alex will be 1 this year! I may have my hands full!
