my new challenge

well i am finally back! it has been a busy weekend here for us as we finish up our taxes, took time to go to church, played some soccer and chilled out this weekend. we have also started chasing mr noah around the house as he is a crawling machine (and a fast one too).


as i was saying in an earlier post, i was cleaning out some of my photos and i found that i had some from last year around this time when i was about 34 weeks pregnant. thinking back that was such an exciting and nervous time for us. we didn't know what to expect as new parents. i didn't know the love (nor the pain - LOL) that i know now.

when i found a second copy of this photo, i decided that this would be a perfect way to make a scrapbook journal of how my thoughts and feelings have changed in this last year. we have baby noah now and what a great year this has been. no more awaiting his arrival but marveling at how much we love being parents and how awesome it is that noah is perfect for david and i. and just as i imagined noah saying hello to the roses, that is TOTALLY how he is today - social and very outgoing to everyone and everything!

i like to think of this as not redoing a layout but rather doing a new layout of the same time with a new perspective.

and here is the LO

so here is my challenge to you this next 10 days - do a layout about a subject you have covered in your past. it doesn't have to be 1 year or 10 years but just look at it with different eyes. think what time has given you now when you look back. you don't have to use an exact same picture or even a photo but look at a moment in time with the gift of the time you have been given.

as i have done in the past, if you post here in the next 10 days, you will get 1 chance in this RAK. if you will post a Layout or Project you have done, you will get 10 chances in this RAK!

i have already started gathering some of the goodies for the RAK (and I will photograph later this week) - I found another Maya Roadie sticker to give to someone, also there are lots of ribbons, some of our new chipboard clocks and scrolls and more! enough for many creations!

all i ask is that you will post here for 1 chance (non anon) and create something for 10 chances.

have fun with this!

tomorrow i will post the pic of the RAK goodies and also, i will let you all in on where i will be teaching in the coming months.

what a great challenge! looking forward to pushing myself to think about a pick in another way. i may even do one tomorrow (the torrential downpour outside might alter my plans to go watch the boston marathon!-a perfect day for scrapping!)

This was a really good challenge, I've been having pretty bad scrappers block where I haven't even felt like touching my stuff, today I created for the first time in a long time. Thank you very much.

Here is my old LO from 2005:

this is another totally cool challenge! It sure is cool to see your different pages. I am going to try to do it, if I can get the time! April has been such a busy month, and once May hits, I am home free!

Thanks you, also, Caroline, for posting your class schedule. I keep bugging my LSS, so hopefully one day you will venture out to beautiful Thousand Oaks, CA!! :-)

here's my take on your challenge ...love the babie belly by the way :)
here's the first layout a did of this photo....I designed and printed the papers myself for this one last year.

...and here is my new version done a couple days ago:
http://etceteraetcetera.files.wordpress.com/2007/04/thestuffofhapiness5001.jpg

I don't know what it is that I love about this picture or moment in time but I keep wanting to revisit it, I think the fact that I captured an innocent moment so well is what draws me to it......
