I was very pleased to get my CJ back today 'Reasons to be cheerful' and it is looking really lovely. I have photographed it all for you to take a look at and comment please!! I had forgotten that when I started this CJ in April I mentioned on the first page that I had got the idea for the CJ whilst trying to be positive for my sister after she had had another failed attempt at IVF. During the lifespan of this CJ though, she has announced she was pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy, Oscar!! She does now (after about 11 attempts) have a reason to be cheeful!!

I have really enjoyed this first month of scrapping 2010 with Shimelle's ideas of how to document the year. The first page is the envelope holding receipts etc of the month (I used a paper bag that came with my Scrapagogo kit), then two pages of photos and notes using page dividers which I have never used before and then finally the last page sums up one event of the month. I have some lovely snow pics but for me January has all been about starting to loose weight and get back to exercise. The latest Scragagogo kits is full of some beautiful old fashioned dometic goddess papers which I thought went well with my theme and hopefully the old and new on the page has worked well.
