Trying New Things

So I'm trying out a new blog look.  What do you think?  My dear friend Theresa did it all!  Doesn't it look amazing!?  I love it!  Thanks Theresa!!!  Another new thing I've tried is, I challenged myself to make a layout in 15 minutes... well almost, it may have been closer to 20 but really that was it.  I left work early and was going to pick up the kids but decided to go home and have about 20 minutes to myself in my own house.  Being home by myself is such a rare occurence so I made the most of it by pulling out March's Scrapbook Circle Kit, a picture of me and the kids and did this layout.
The butterfly and the brads are the only things that weren't in the kit.  Doing a quickie layout was actually alot of fun!  I may have to do it more often, and a good kit makes it so easy!  The picture of me in the layout above brings me to my next new thing... This Saturday I cut myself bangs!!!  I haven't had bangs since early high school so probably 20 years.  I'm not attaching a picture of my new banged look but picture me above with bangs and there you have it.  I wasn't sure about them at first but today at work, 2 people told me I looked younger and 2 different people asked me if I've lost weight!  Yes, it's all in the bangs!!!  I love them! 

And the last new thing to report is a DT call over at Scrapbookers Anonymous!  We have some fun changes coming up in the next 6 months and we want a bigger design team.  Right now we have six fabulous ladies who have all agreed to stay on but we'd love it if you would go ahead and try out for it!!!  Go here and check out the requirements.

Oh and don't forget April's Challenge over ast Scrapbookers Anonymous!  Pull out those eyelets and use them in some manner!!!  The DT did a lot of amazing things with those old eyelets!

Love the new look blog and love the quickie LO, maybe I should give it a go. Great photo, the background paper is so cool. You must post a photo of the new you, you know how sometimes I confuse you with some British words I use, thought you might like to know what we call 'bangs'. In the U.K. we call it a fringe, I prefer the word bangs though.xxxx
