A Little Bit of This and That

Happy Monday to you! Sorry I've been away. This was my weekend away with hubby and even though I had a sinus infection it was still a nice little getaway. Then the weather got all funky on Sunday so we didn't actually make it home till almost 6pm. So needless to say, I haven't had much time to create.

I meant to show these Valentine projects on Friday - you know BEFORE Valentine's Day. But that didn't happen...too many other things going on and when you are sick something that normally takes 5 minutes takes an hour! So I'm sharing AFTER the fact but the projects could be altered for an anniversary or birthday for a loved one as well. These were the projects I taught at the Shabbi Shack in January. First up is the scrapbook page:

The photo sizes are 4x6 and two 2x3's. Next is a treat container. I used the Rounded Wrap Up template from PTI.
"Sweets for my sweet" is from the I HEART YOU stamp set by The Angel Company. Last is a card.
The sentiment is from CHEERY THOUGHTS and the swirls are from FANCY CURLS both by The Angel Company. I made this little set as a gift to give your hubby or child to show them how much they mean to you. I'm waiting on some pictures I ordered of Abby to put in the page. Then I'm going to narrow down the list of things she does that makes me smile to 5. She's a pretty funny girl. She says so many things that make me giggle. I need to start having a little book with me at all times again because just today in the car she said like 3 different things I don't want to forget!

These past few weeks, I've shared some creations using Softpencil digital images. They have there own group on PCP where I've gotten to know some of the girls as well as Elizabeth who is the illustrator for Softpencil. She's super nice and today she surprised me with this award!

Thank you Elizabeth! You are so sweet! I'm supposed to say 10 things that make me happy and pass it along to 10 people. Here are 10 things that make me happy:
*my family
*my sweet cat, Jasmine
*coffee with cream (french vanilla) and splenda
*shopping for my addiction of stamping, scrapbooking and paper crafting!
*great friends
*my favorite music and tv shows
*a good book
*Nature - the changing of seasons
*birds - EVERY bird...they just amaze me

Now I'm supposed to give this award to 10 people. I hate this part as there are so many of you out there that have touched me one way or another. I don't like to think I could hurt someones feelings so instead I'm giving it to all of YOU....ENJOY and THANK YOU for blessing me in so many ways!!
