Taking nothing for granted....

Hi everyone! 

Happy New Year!!!! :)

I am excited this month as Anne has asked me to be the GDT for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month!! :)

Our first challenge this month is about New Year's resolutions!! 

What will be your new year's resolution this year, or scrap about your resolution another year. Were
you successful? Would you do it again?? Or what do you wish you could resolve and stick to???

Here is my take on the challenge! :)




This is ME back in 1974 :) I used a lot of older Basic Grey on my layout that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)

 



And my journaling :)
 
 
Hope you all can join us!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
