New Release: Stripped Set 4 (and a few other things)

Happy New Year, everyone!! Hope you had fun ringing in the new year. I was stuck in bed, scrapping until it was close to midnight and believe me when I say that is where I wanna be. LOL!

So, I was just lounging around the house today, watching movies, thinking about the start of my postgraduate classes tomorrow when suddenly I thought that I should come up with a new template pack for this week's release. So here you go, Stripped Set 4. I turned some of my recent layouts into these and love it oh so much!! You can get it now for only $1 during the weekend, either at ScrapMatters or Sunshine Studio Scraps.

Anyway, I've jumped into the Project 365 bandwagon too and I have set up a separate blog for that. I've tried doing Photo-A-Day (or its variation) before but got stopped after a couple of weeks but for this year, I'm determined to do it. I need to brush up on my photography skills and what better way to do it than this, right? Let's just hope that I'll stick to it this time.

Well, I guess that's part of my New Year's so-called resolution anyway. Other than that, I would love to lose my excess weight. I've gotten so chubby it's not even funny. I'm starting today and it's getting good. I've been drinking lots of water too. Another thing that I would love to achieve is to scrap more. I remembered last year I made a goal to scrap at least 100 layouts before year end, and I managed to achieve that goal before April. So I changed my goal to 250 and managed to achieve that in July. By December 31st, I had scrapped 365 layouts. So for 2009, I would like to have a goal of scrapping 365 layouts again and maybe more..

Before I go, here's a look back at my layouts of 2008. I picked my favourites from each month. Earlier in the year, it was so easy to pick because my layouts were just simple and really bland, but towards the end, there were soooo many beautiful layouts (well, at least they ARE beautiful to me!!) to choose from. I'm glad I did this cos I can see how much I had grown scrapping wise. My layouts might not be in gallery standouts every other day, but I'm happy with them. :)

If you have read everything that I had written, you definitely deserved a little gift. Here's a template I made from the first layout I ever made in 2008. Enjoy! (And hey, if you do a layout with this template, why don't you email them to me before January 14th? I'll choose a few people randomly to give GCs to. How does that sound? My email address is star4dreamATyahooDOTcom)

Have a good day/night everyone. I'm gonna enjoy tonight to the max cos I'll start postgrad classes tomorrow and next Monday, work will be on full swing since the students are now back on campus.
