My first scrapbook page of 2009.... this is our oldest DD at age 2 and a half.... wow, time sure does fly.  She now has a son the same age!  When we looked at this photo with a photo taken of him at Christmas.... well, they could almost be twins!!!

Materials: Bazzill CS, MS Lace border punch, Heidi Grace chipboard, Daisy Bucket flourish, MME bling

I don't know about you, but I have BOXES of photos.... two years ago I decided to start scrapbooking... I still have a long way to go, but at least some of our photos will see life "outside the box".

Happy New Year!

I've absent for a while... getting some life issues in order. I'm looking forward to a brand new year!!!

Here's a New Year wish for you....

New Year's Wishes

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them. May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching, and may your check book and your budget balance - and include generous amounts for charity.

May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

And may we live in a world at peace and with the awareness of God's love in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.

Happy 2009 to each and everyone of you!!
