Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010

It has been a busy January and believe me, busy is not the only word--cold is another and also fraught with many papers to proof-read for my kids as they had projects that needed to be fine-tuned after winter break and since mom has a college education, they think that I must know it all--I do not, but I am learning a bunch of things that I did not know before learning from all their research!

It has been cold so that takes a bunch out of me right there and then there was the Vikings...who put us on a whirlwind run for the big bowl, and alas, we were not able to pull it off. SO I sit here on a Sunday, with no more football to watch and that gives me a little more Sunday time to do something constructive. SO I am going to try and blog a bit more, scrap a whole lot more and try find things that make me to do until this forsaken winter gets over. On Tuesday, it is Groundhog Day so hopefully he sees his shadow or not...but believe me, I am looking for only 6 more weeks until spring...please let that be so.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper, flowers, chipboard shape: SEI; Journaling spot: Webster's Pages; Letter stickers: American Crafts, Making Memories; Ribbon: Prima; Sticker quote: Cloud 9 Design; Metal Word Plate: Making Memories

Above is a layout I did right around January first. One of the few I have made since Christmas. I wanted to put down some reasonable goals for myself. I think they are do-able. I used some papers that I have been saving for some time now. The bright vibrant colors energize me and make me think of hot summer nights and sunny days. {More to come in the next few days} Love and Hugs. Lara

Hello 2010

Ok, so here is 2010! I am so bad a blogging lately. Perhaps I can find some time this year! I just wanted to post about the new Shimmerz that are coming out this year! They are fun and happy colors from what I can tell and you can use them on anything to add the shine! Love them!

Have you been checking out the sneaks? Some pretty amazing color combos are coming out! I cannot wait to see more. Love and Hugs. Lara
