Making Goals...

This is a layout that I did yesterday featuring some more of those Heidi Grace papers. This photo was taken on the porch at Mount Vernon and I thought that it was perfect for this type of layout. This is the first time I have done a list like this...kind of interesting.

This was also my first official layout of the 100 that I have to create before I can buy new stash. eeeek...that is going to take a while, but it was something that Lynne was talking about on her blog and as I look around my overflowing scraproom, I realized that it was something that I needed to do for myself. She says that we can still buy cardstock and adhesive and I have already given myself permission to buy a StazOn reinker because that is a staple that I just haven't gotten done yet. But then I will be good...I figure that 100 layouts should take me through Christmas... Wish me luck!

Here is our new creative prompt. This is a page out of the September 2006 Domino. The overall feel of the page is inspirational itself, but I really like the actual way that the page is laid out and I know that is where I plan to delve into this inspiration piece.

Happy Monday!
smiles,
christi

I saw that "100 layout" thing on Lynne's blog too. It just reinforced my determination to organize my scrap area and reminded me that I have way more "stuff" than I probably need! May have to do this challenge with you (if you don't mind some company! :) )

uuummmm 100 layouts before buying new stash....I would never make it. But I wish you all the luck. You scrap so fast I'm sure you can do it. Your first page is a real beauty. I just love the soft colors for the picture. Great work.

love the picture and the way you did the list Christi. You did a terrific job using those older hg papers. good luck with the 100 layouts. I really should do the same thing. But since I've only done a couple layouts in the past couple weeks...I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to buy anything for a year (or more!).

You know me. I love list. I shared your page with grand S Tim last night. He liked it too.
I used your beautiful box prompt and wrote a book about it.
