Happy New Year everyone! Did you ring in 2012 in a grand way like me? Haha :) We spent our evening in the most perfect of ways, at home, with movies and snacks a low key night with my parents. At midnight (I stole Tracy's idea) and opened up the back door, to let the old year out, and the front door, to let the new year in. I just love that idea!
We headed over to mom and dad's on Sunday afternoon for our annual Black Eyed Peas and then we went over to our old neighbors house and spent some time with them. It was a great way to spend the first day of the new year :)
Yesterday, I finally got down to my craft room and got to work on my layouts. I got A LOT accomplished. In fact, I only have one more from 2011 to complete and then I can devote myself completely to 2012 and Project Life. Do you know how good that feels? Pretty amazing!
My trick for getting so much accomplished in the layout department? Pebbles Inc divided page protectors.
I bought these last year at Hobby Lobby and they make for super quick layouts! I paired them with some pre-made 4x6 Halloween cards and let me tell ya, I sort of felt like I was making a Project Life layout. Ha!
Just a few simple embellishments...
And some cardstock stickers :)
I was able to whip out MONTHS of pictures in just a couple of hours. It was awesome!
Do you have any surefire tips for getting yourself caught up when you're behind? Maybe not just on layouts, but on other craft projects?
I'm heading back to work today. It's been so nice to be at home this last week and a half and I can't believe it's over already. The girls are both ready to go back, and seem excited, so that makes me happy.
I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you tomorrow :)
