Resolutions Underway...

So this year, like any other, I have a giant list of resolutions: things I want to improve about myself, mostly. Don't worry I'm not going to bore you with all my goals - which, by the way happen to be similar every year. Why is that? They're the same things I always struggle with and I really am determined to do better.

So anyway, one of my goals was to get caught up on my scrapbooks. I decided to go all digital because it's just easier for me. But then I saw this, oh-so-cute traditional scrapbook kit and just HAD to have it. (click here to see it). Unfortunately, it sold out FAST and so I went back to my original plan - digital. But that cute kit did give me the idea for this layout. This is what my family's scrapbook will look like this year.

365 Random Pictures of our life together. I still want to tweak this a bit and try to make it as cute as the original. But you get the idea. So at least one of my resolutions will actually be "resolved" by the end of the year.


*sorry you can't read the journaling at the bottom of the pages - basically the pictures are the queso dip we had on new years, Cameron impersonating the gorrilla from the zoo after Utah kicked Alabama's hiney in the Sugar Bowl, Isaac shouting his new favorite word, "touchdown!", Austin getting out the silverware to set the table while wearing his new CTR ring that he loves, I joined the YMCA, one of the shelves of the fridge fell down and jelly and milk splashed/slimed all over the floor, I babysat 6 kids (besides my three) and the boys made a HUGE fort in our front room. - and THAT is my week in a nutshell*

GO KENDI.
I have all my pix in a file. Planning on PShopping them tonight. We have to keep ourselves on top of this!
I LOVE that you took a picture of the jelly and milk splattered on the floor!

I love your version of the 365/day page. I was one of the lucky few that got the kit and I'm so excited!!
As for my scrappy pages, I am a paper scrapper but I use my photoshop a lot! I'd be happy to share what I know with you. So I guess I'm what they call Hybrid. I just love paper products, and depth, and touching the different textures...

Looks so great. I need to learn how to use photoshop! Your family is so lucky to have you!

Andrea said...

What a cute idea! I love it! Is it bad that I would never be able to keep up on something like that though? Maybe next year, lol!

Veronica Reeve said...

Such a great idea Kendra! I've been loving all your posts, sorry I've been a slacker commenter. Your boys are getting so big!

shay said...

I love the layout! Good luck with getting caught up! I know how daunting it can be! I can't wait to see more!
