Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year and welcome to my blog.  I decided to start this blog to share tidbits of my life and love of scrapbooking.  I'm new to the world of blogging so I'll just play it by ear and see how it goes. If any of you veteran bloggers have tips for a newbie, please feel free to share. 

We welcomed in 2011 at watch night service at our church, Langley AFB Chapel. This has been a tradition of ours for many years.  After we entered the year in prayer,  we went across the street to the Chapel Annex for breakfast and fellowship. 

I keep chronological scrapbooks and start a new album for each year.  My cover page for each album is always a layout of my family on New Year's Day.  I don't scrapbook in chronological order so most of my albums are still works in progress, but my goal for this weekend is to do the cover page for my 2011 album.   I'll post the page on the blog when it's finished, but in the meantime you can view some of my other projects in the Paper Gems slide show on the right.

I'm looking forward to sharing with you throughout this year.  May the Lord shower you with his love and blessings in 2011.
