Double LO for Let's Scrap

I've finished my first full LO of the year using a sketch challenge over at Let's Scrap. We were given the sketch below and told to create a project using this as our inspiration. I decided to use the sketch as is. I have a lot of pages with TOOO many pictures so it was nice to have a sketch with so many pictures on it. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for looking!

New blog!

Hey everyone, just wanted to give ya'll a head's up about my new blog. I know I don't do much posting on this blog due to my hectic life and not having enough time to do my crafting to show you all but this new blog will have regular posts. It's called Deployment Through My Eyes. It's my deployment journal through what will be our third and last deployment! I would love it if you all checked it out! Thanks for coming by ladies!

I Hope Your New Year ROCKS!

I've got a card to share with you all. This is covering two different challenges, which I will list below. All of the paper is just scraps so I have no idea what they are called, but I do know that the background paper came out of a mat pack. The image is Rockstar Anya from The Greeting Farm. I thought she would just be the perfect little lady for this card!

So the challenges that this covers is:

Thanks for looking!

What a start to the new year!

So today is the start of deployment #3! I'm sad to see Tom leave for yet another deployment and only after 5 months home from the last. But hey that's the life in the Navy (on his ship anyway). Thomas doesn't realize that his daddy will be gone for so long but he's been gone so much since we've been in Virginia that it's very normal for all of us. It's unfortunate that our normal is to have him gone but it's our reality. It does make it easier to deal with him being gone though, we don't have to do too much readjusting. On a happy note this is most likely our last deployment EVER! Unless something drastic happens in the next three years. I can definitely feel that the end is coming closer, this will be our last deployment and when we go to shore command next year (2011) it will be our last military relocation! The lasts' of our military life have just begun. I can't believe that it's been 5 years already and we've only got 3 left. It has been a roller coaster so far but one I've enjoyed having been on. I hope that this new year brings us happy memories and safe travel for my hubby and all those who are out there serving as well!
