Marnie suggested the challenge for this layout......Scrap lift one of the layouts from the last page of your own gallery on Scrapbook.Com. I chose a layout from a long time ago that was originally done by Kelli Crowe....lots of little mismatched shapes blended together to make a background. The photo is of Andie...who was a bee for Halloween in 2011.

On Christmas Eve, Jennifer brought me an adorable little gnome made of evergreens. He had a hat, mittens and a big puffy nose......I loved him! I thought that the phrase "A Gnome For The Holidays" worked perfectly with the photo. Some die cut evergreens, hanging lights and stitching around the mat finished the layout off.

My first layout for the 2021......25 Layouts in a year challenge! Morgan graduated from Illinois State University in May of 2020. There was no formal graduation because of the Covid19 Pandemic, but the graduates were allowed back on campus(Each at a specified time )to take graduation photos with no contact with anyone. I used two 4x6 photos and four 2x2 photos...the journaling is under the flap of the second 2x2 photo.

The one phrase I kept hearing during 2020 was....I can't wait for 2021. Well, it's here. Unfortunately, there won't be any miracles happening in an instant to make things better.....but there are so many possibilities to dream and think about....so...Welcome 2021!
I used to make New Year Resolutions every year...they were never very long lived. Marnie mentioned that a friend of hers suggested making goals for the New Year instead of resolutions...that sounds so much more doable and kind of fun too....especially when applied to scrapbooking and paper crafting...so I'm in!
The 2021 Goal/Challenge......to create 25 Layouts in 12 months...it's going to be a great year!
I also want to....
1.Finish my 2020 December Daily (Before the 2021 December Daily comes out!)
2. Keep my Planner up-to-date...because I sometimes forget to use my planner a couple of weeks here and there and it really is so much easier to have all your daily plans and information in one place.
3. Have all my scrapbooking supplies at least moderately organized, now I'm not expecting miracles, but if I can find something that I'm looking for...Yay!
The February Sampler for 2021....Theme: My Front Porch. My real front porch looks nothing like this one, but I really wish it did. I'...
Decorating the tree is much easier for a bird....he can just flutter up to the top of the tree to string the lights and ornaments up high....
Up on the housetop...reindeer paws....okay...so they're not reindeer paws...they're birdie claws. Santa has a new set of critters ...
