i totally just had a revelation after visiting American Crafts blog, Wow i actually just made that a link!! First time, i'm proud of myself! lol
But yeah back to the revelation:
i found a new way to do pro
ject 365, here's my idea, if you go  couple of posts down they have instructions in how to make a cute valentine lunch box, and put 4x6 photos in with writing to use as valentines
So that got my creative juices flowing, and i came up with this:
get a lunch box like the one below, decorate as desired
Take a photo a day for a year
Print at 4X6
put all journaling on the back
For the dates, either add text before printing, or use a date stamp with white ink or other colors or so.
And assemble all in the lunchbox, as a filling sort of thing!!
well i'll tell you i was pretty darned excited with this idea, and kind of disappointed that i already have a system for my project, but if i do pretty well this year, i will definitely use this idea next year!
Just thought i would share for those of you who may not have an idea anymore!
Thanks for looking!

I got inspiration for this layout from the December CK i think it was, but i just had to do a picture about snuggling up, with warm Pj's and sisters, lol, and by the fire, with a hot cup of tea.  Sorry the pictures are pretty bad,and the big picture i used was bad too, but i just had to put it in, it was the only one i had, and i love it anyway!

Christmas layout

This is a page about the present i gave my youngest sister, whose 14, for christmas. I was thinking and thinking for ages, wondering what to get her, and when me and my older sister, and my dad were walking through Wal-mart, i saw this: Mini frying pans. And i remembered that every-time we saw one together she would say, ohh i want one! So i gave her one for christmas, and she loved it! She had no idea, but it was awesome. The pan is the perfect size for her to make scrambled eggs, or a grilled cheese! But the look on her face was priceless when she opened the present!

25 things about me

i bet you anything this will end up being a scrapbook page in a couple of days:
i got this idea from my cousin Carly, on Facebook, so here it goes:

1. one of the things i am most grateful in my life is having the opportunity to go to Carroll, and everyday i realize just how lucky i am to be there.
2. i don't know what u would do if i didn't have my music, i listen to it all day, and without it i think i would go crazy.
3. i will do anything to record all the everyday things, big or small, i want my kids to know as much about me as possible, and more importantly i want to remember everything that happens.
3. something i am most scared of is forgetting.
4. i want another pet, our home hasn't been the same since kitty died.
5. i believe that i am an "old soul", i've been here for while, because i act more like a 50 year old then a 16 year old.
6. i cannot wait until i turn 18 and become an adult
7. i am happy that i am not in the "popular" crowd, i couldn't be happier with the friends i've made, and i don't want to throw my life away with drugs and alcohol.
8. i love dressing up and getting all pretty!
9. i LOVE math, it's that thrill or going through all of those steps and then getting the right answer after all of it, and most important, there's only one answer!
10. Yes i am a book worm and i love it, i don't know what i would do without books, i love submerging myself in another life, a new adventure and conflict! 
11. i could stay on the computer for hours, editing photos and browsing scrapbooking websites, message boards and blogs
12. i forget my age sometimes!
13. my ideal job would to be a professional photographer, it is my dream!
14.Ichiban is my saviour! i love it soo much, even though it is not good for at all!
15. one thing i hope to achieve one day, is to write in my journal for 365 days, i dont know why i haven't done this one yet  because i love journals and buying new ones, so you would think that would be motivation enough to get going! lol
16. i love being able to transform an ordinary photo into something i never thought possible.
17. i hope one day i will know how to use photoshop to it's full extent.
18.i want to explore the world, i don't want to be one of those people that never leaves their city or country.
19. i will never buy a pair of jeans over $30, i but cheap clothes, and i'm proud of it, because the truth is most people can't tell the difference.
20. i hardley ever make a decision on the fly, i need time to think about most things.
