Word for 2009-LEAD

That is my word...not like the metal of course, but the word that rhymes with bead...LEAD. I did some soul-searching. Lead: to guide, take charge of, to tend toward...I want to lead myself and my family into a better place...taking control and assisting others to take control in our lives, ie organizing, budgeting time and money, setting goals and setting a plan to attain those goals...that is what I am all about in 2009.

I am involved in a program at work right now that inspired me to choose this word. Ironically, it is called the LEAD program (it stands for Leadership blah-blah-blah)--you know government acronyms--anyway, it is aspiring us to find a need, make a plan, set a project and see it through, enough to evaluate the outcome at the end of the year. SO I am going to take charge and follow through on things at home and at work! Have a beautiful day! Love and hugs! Lara

Let's talk primary colors

I know I am not a primary color person...I might use red or blue or green in small amounts but when it comes to graphic primary colors or monotones, I am not one of those that can get it to appeal to me. I am drawn to color and the more types, the better. This month, I got a mostly red and black DT product (Jenni Bowlin Red/Black Line) from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking
and I was worried that all my layouts looked the same. But they did not, and here are 4 of MY favorites to prove it. I have a full gallery with all of them this month, if you want to check it out I had plenty of variety and with a few of the products holding blue and tan and brown, I was able to squeeze out some pretty cool layouts, if I do say so myself. Kind of like the end results...not just in the variety, but the designs too. TFL Love and hugs, Lara
