Monthly Goals

How are your scrapping goals coming along? I did pretty well in January. I surpassed my goal of 6 events and did 8! I scrapped a total of 16 pages. Not too shabby! I'm already off to a great start for February.
I also bought some way cute $10 scrapbooks from Michaels with some extra sheet protectors. One scrapbook is for my Easter pages, to be put out and looked at during Easter time. The other one is for Halloween. Can you guess which one is which? ....What a great Halloween book--black, but so chic!
This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time. It was exciting to finally put everything together since our family started almost 10 years ago. I had a few 8.5 x 11 pages, but I just picked a matching 12x12 colorful paper to put behind the page. My Easter book is so exciting because it is totally caught up! I even redid some pages that I did not like. (I just have to print out a few pages-but everything is scrapped at least!) Take a look at these embarrassing layouts-they were originally 8.5 x 11 layouts.
And here is my redo:

Just being able to lighten up and work on the cute picture of my daughter holding up the plastic egg, makes this redo so worth it. But I am also so happy with the overall results! I think this is the first time I've ever redone pages. My philosophy is usually if it's scrapped, it's done, move on. But this one was really bugging me!

Happy Scrapping!
