New Years Resolutions!

One of the latest projects up on the BoBunny blog was to scrap your new years resolutions or goals which I think is a wonderful idea, especially if you are one of those people (like me)  who have problems sticking to them!  In fact I have not made any resolutions for a few years now but I decided to give it a go this year and I plan on keeping my layout up in my scraproom where I will see it everyday and that should keep reminding me what they are and maybe I will be more likely to keep them ;)

Anyway this is the layout I did using my new favourite Midnight Frost!  I had to do this one in a bit of a mad rush so I did it in a few hours but I still really like it, actually maybe that should have been one of my resolutions to stop faffing so much when I scrapbook and just get on with it!  Sorry it has also been photographed it in horrific lighting again, roll on spring and summer!  That photo is also a few years old because I don't have many photos of me and my printer does not do a wonderful job on photos and as it was a rush I just had to use what I had ;)

Supplies used
Midnight Frost Snowfall, Midnight Frost Ice, Midnight Frost Crystals
Midnight Frost 12x12 Chipboard, Pin from Frost Wraps
Midnight Frost stamps
Tim Holtz mask
American Crafts Thickers
liquid crystals, 

Tip :  I got extra use out of my 12x12 chipboard by cutting off the name strip and using the outside edge too.

 My resolutions were...

Be more organised (lol)
Accept what life throws at me and then move on (I have a tendency to keep things with me)
Worry less (snorting as I write this one!)
Trust more (me, everyone else, higher powers!)
Spend more time just playing with the kids (not just being their chauffeur)
Exercise (more snorting)
Everything does not have to be perfect (at least not completely perfect ;) )
Eat healthier  (maybe I can leave all the bad things like baked goods and sweets and just add more fruit and veggies??)
Be Braver (I am a wimp!)

I am considering trying out the Be Braver one by driving to a scrapbooking weekend my social group is having in a few weeks....It is a 3 hour drive and I normally hate to drive long distances by myself (I can also get lost anywhere!) but I am seriously considering it as it would be so much quicker and easier than the train...oh well we will see!

Did anyone else make any resolutions this year?

Don't forget that Bo Bunny is having the second part to their blog hop on Wednesday and I will be taking part in this one too, so if you would like a chance to win some Bo Bunny goodies pop back then, starting at the Bo Bunny Blog :)

Absolutely gorgeous page and great to see you on a layout.

I rarely do resolutions as I seem to break them so quickly - one of my friends this year has set intentions - I wonder if I called them intentions if they would be easier to keep LOL!!
