Scrappin' Sunday

 I woke up this morning to sounds in the kitchen (fridge opening and closing, utensil drawer opening, stuff clanging on the counter.  This is what I found when I got to the kitchen......

Jadon was peeling his own Cutie!  He had it almost done by the time I got out there and he finished it without my help.  This is something that does not come easy for Jadon since it requires the use of both hands.  He did a great job and I was very proud that he never asked for help!  He knew he could do it and he did!

I have really been enjoying this weekend.  I love days off with nothing planned!  Just hanging out at home is the best!  I also decided that it could be a pajama day.  Jadon looked to comfy and warm.  We had no plans to go anywhere so I just let him stay that way.  So today was a pretty layed back relaxing day.

I spent a lot of time scrapbooking today.  I found this great challenge.

She uses a specific template and fills it up with her favorite captured memories at the end of each month.  Then at the end of the year she has a great collection of memories from the year.  She then goes back to review her blog and adds a second page of journaling to go with each layout.  I think I can handle one layout a month! She provides a download link for the layout she created for this year but unfortunately it was for use with photoshop.  I spend part of the day recreating it in Storybook so I can follow along with this challenge this year!  In the process I also learned how to make my own templates and share them using Storybook today!  If you use Storybook and would like the .page  version of the 2012 A Month In Photos Challenge template send me a message! 

I also started making a perpetual calendar or birthday calendar.  My mom asked me to make her one and I would also like one for myself.  It took quite awhile just to set up how I wanted the layout for each month to look (they will have be the same) so I did not get very far on making them pretty.  I did get January done though!

If anyone of my friends or family would like to create their own b-day calendar using the page let me know and I will send it to you!!  I will post others as I get them done!  Now that I have the layout all figured out the rest will be easy!
