I was not too sure about going to Archivers this weekend with Heather since it was my last day of Christmas vacation. Poor Heather had no idea how to take my indecisivness and just kind of went with my mood changes as we discussed over email what time we were going to go. I am sooooooo glad that I decided to go!!! It turned out to be a very quiet and very relaxing day! I went into the day with very little expectations and thought I get done what I get done! I was very happy with my outcome! We spent 5 hours at Archivers and I really only completed one page but I am really happy with the page and I really did spend about 3 1/2 hours working on it! I did work on a calendar that I have yet to get finished from Christmas (I feel bad, every year Grandma and Grandma & Grandpa get those calendars about 2 months into the new year!) and I did start another page but didn't have time to finish! I felt so relaxed and I was amazed how much I have been taking out of scrapbboking by putting high expectations on myself every time I get out of the house! I always feel like since I'm out, I have to get AS MUCH finished as possible!!! Not so, I have found out!
So here are a few pics of my layout. The first one isn't so good but wanted to show a close-up of the bottom of the page.
I love the sparkly letters from Making Memories!

Just some journaling so I don't forget the time the picture was taken. I am still blown away that I wasn't able to see Audrey until 13 hours after she was born due to all of the complications and me being in ICU. That's still a difficult thing for me to get over.

An overall look at the layout.

And another!

Products used on this layout:

Making Memories: Circle, scalloped Paper; brads; black rub-on letters; Note-Worthy Journaling Tag

In organization news, Heather came by on Friday and helped me get all of my supplies organized into categories and colors, etc! She spent 4 hours helping me be brave and purge some things for garage sale and trash! I am so excited! I had talked to Tom on his way home from work telling him how excited I was and when he came home he came upstairs with me and looked around and said, "That's it?! It looks the same as when I saw it last night!!" MEN, they just don't get it do they?!

I hope everyone has started the New Year off on a great note! I will be back soon!
