I have been crafting - just not lately!!

Looking at my blog - I see it has been a very long time - over two months since I have posted anything. Today I was working on a digital layout for an online class I am doing. Would you like to see it? The class is a year long class titled My Life - Brilliant. The class is through Digital Scrapper. I have been a Premier member for a few years now and have even signed up for a few classes - though have never completed any of them. :) This one I think I will find a bit more doable. The idea is to create a photobook about your life - with the minimum of making a two page spread each month following the theme of the month. This month the theme is about the People I love. Since I adore my children and my husband, I found this would be a great place to start. This is only the first page, and doesn't include a picture of my oldest son since I don't have any recent pictures of him. The adjoining page will be more of a journal page about why I love each of these wonderful, fantastic children and husband of mine! :) This page is sure to be tweaked before the end of the year - and possibly even the end of the month - we will see.
I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season. I didn't send out any greeting cards - but I did have fun making a bunch of gift card holders and even crafted with my youngest daughter and friend Lisa during the middle of December. I sent some card making kits to my mom siince she enjoyed doing some crafting with me during her visit here in October.
My work as a massage therapist has picked up tremendously and I find myself with less time to create in my craft room - however, things will balance out soon, and I hope to find more time to craft - especially since I just got a large Stampin' Up! order of some of the goodies in the new Occasions mini catalog and some of the new Sale-A-Bration items that will be available later this month with a $50 order.
Thanks for keeping up with me and do come back in the days ahead as I do plan on creating some new items soon.

Your layout is beautiful and perfect for this type of pictures! This is also such a great idea for an album! I don't think I scrap nearly enough from my perspective and this is such a great way to preserve who you were for future family members too!
