Some Lo's and 2010 Plans

Well I haven't yet left the house this year so I am pleased to say that I have been spending some time at home and inbetween housework, tidying and looking after Emily, I have managed to do a couple of lo's. I planned these lo's last week so it was quite easy to put them together.
The first lo has been made using the fancy pants girl dancer range. I loved this range but was not sure if i would have much use for it as the rubons and stickers i thought would be more useful for older girl lo's, anyway that did not stop me buying the papers etc in the sales and the theme of this lo fitted well. When the x-factor was on, Emily would love watching the lights and the music and I took these photos of her and Iain dancing to Queen's - we will rock you. A perfect theme for the lo!
In December I took Emily to the zoo with my friend and her two children. I really wanted Emily to see the grotto as I thought she would enjoy the lights. She ended up sleeping through the entire 5 hour trip and I also tried waking her up twice, once when we were in the grotto and again when we were by the elephants. She was having none of it but I wanted to scrapbook the memory anyway! For this lo i have used the sassafrass bungle papers and also a prima animal bash. I am pleased with the result especially as I have managed to put papers together and use them from two suppliers without the help of my gogo kit!
This lo is based on the twister sisters sketch 29. I have not done the twice but i really liked the sketch so wanted to use it anyway. This was the first photo ever taken on Emily so another one to document. I have used October afternoon ducks in a row papers.

Well, quite a productive day I thought. I have not done anymore of the journal your christmas as I am waiting for the photos - they will be ready in the morning so i will get them then hopefully - as long as their machine has not broken like last time! Then I should be able to continue with that.
I have decided to take on some other projects for 2010 too as I have enjoyed the promts on the JYC. I have decided to do the 52 in 10 challenge which is a weekly lo by scrapdolly - link on my blog. Also the 2010 weekly challenge. I have the promts for both so again i need the photos which i will hopefully sort our later and then i will be able to have a go at these two lo's this week too. It will be nice to finally use some of the patterned papers that I collected last year and used very few of!
Lastly....the diet starts tomorrow....that is not a stash diet (yet) but the weight loss diet....I need to be a reasonable size and to have shed my pregnancy weight and some before March when my sister gets married.....wish me luck!
Thanks for reading x
