In addition to the holiday challenge, I signed up for the Scrappin' Goal Challenge for the month of January. My goal this month is to make 4 LOs and 4 mini albums. I thought originally I would like to do a 6x6 LO but then switched it to an 8x8. It isn't as intimidating as a 12x12 page but I can still add more than a picture! :-) At least for this month, Sundays are my scrapping days. We will see how it goes.....you all know that I am not very comfortable scrapbooking! I do, however, love making mini albums. They are short and have a definite end! :-)
My first LO of the year is of Calvin and his 'Great' Uncle John. John is an amazing soul who is like a surrogate grandfather to my boys. He reminds the boys so much of their late Papa, loyal and genuine.

Those of you that know my family know that soccer is a huge part of our fall and spring. Amazingly, this is the first time I have attempted to scrap any of the boys' moments on the field! :-) Mini albums are so much easier for me to make! I LOVE the Cosmo Cricket Blackboard albums.
