Happy New Year! Ok, so I guess it's time for resolutions to be made. I love this time of year-it helps me to set goals and I usually have a list of them! Unfortunately I'm like most people who make New Year's Resolutions-I have a hard time keeping them.

Well, I'm going to post them here anyway. Hopefully this will help me stay on track and I can report back to you on a weekly basis on how I'm doing.

This year my plan is to catch up on all of my scrapbooks. A year ago, I discovered digital scrapbooking and have decided to convert my five children's basic paste-the-picture-on-the-page style scrapbooks to digitally created pages that are lots more fun. What I LOVE about digital scrapbooking is that there's no mess, you can use elements and pages over and over and for me it can be much less time consuming. However, it didn't take me long to learn that with so many awesome digital scrapbooking kits and sites out there, I could spend hours online looking for kits, buying kits and spending lots of time trying to be creative in turning those kits into pages. Which of course defeats the purpose of being quick and easy.

Sooo.... I have decided to purchase a few quick pages and concentrate on using those pages over and over in my scrapbooks. Now I can do a page in about five minutes or less. I've purchased some awesome quickpages at which is probably my favorite source for quickpages, calendars, cards. It's amazing! So in the course of 1 year in creating pages (I saved most of the pages I did for my oldest daughter so they can be used again for my other daughters-yes!) and buying quick pages online, I have about 40 that I can use.

I am also going to start creating my own themed digital quick pages and will be selling them (and offering some for free here!) on my website My first page I created was inspired by a picture of my two children hugging-here it is:

This page will be available for purchase soon on my website as well as a few others and I will be adding more as often as I can. I will also offer some freebies, so check back often!
Five pages a day-can I do it? I'll keep you posted!
