Happy New Years!!

I can't believe tomorrow is the start of 2009...2008 flew by. It's been a better year than 2007!! But I think 2009 is going to be a stellar year...right Bekah!! (we keep saying this thinking it will come true)

I know many people start the new year out with resolutions or goals, but not me. I'm starting mine with a statement. "I'm going to try to do my best at everything I do." ( I already try my best..but I like to reissue my thoughts) As I type this I've been thinking about my word for 2009. Tons of words have been floating through my head...but the one I like the most is EMBRACE.
*I want to embrace my girls
*I want to be embraced by Tony
*I want to embrace what life has to offer
*I want to embrace change
*I want to embrace my friends
I could go on but I feel as if you get the point!

How could anyone not want to embrace these cuties??

Here's a couple LOs. I'm trying to get my mojo back. I think Santa took it back to the North Pole with him.

I did this one for the 52 sketches blog. I just love her sketches!!

This one I did for was a scrabble challenge. Check it out!!

I hope everyone has a great prosperous and fabulous New Years!!

Love and Hugs!!

More Cards!!

Today...Tony tells me he would like cards for his co-managers. I'm totally cool with this but,
I asked him like 2 weeks ago if he would like cards and he tells me NO. SO, today I asked if he wanted me to make them or go out and purchase them. Of course he leaves this decision up to me. Well I decided to make them because it's down right frigid outside. This morning it was 3 degrees with a wind chill of -17. I decide I'm not fighting the cold nor the stores for cards. So here's what I created today.

Today I was also very lucky to receive happy scrappy mail. I got Amanda Probst's new book. It's full of great scrapping prompts as well as beautiful LOs. I will definitely refer to it monthly for great scrapping ideas. From her book I learn that February 24th is National Tortilla Chip Day!! I love random facts like that.

I hope everyone has a great Holiday!!
Love and Hugs!!

I had a huge box waiting at the door for me this afternoon after I picked up Gigi. I won a challenge at ScrapJazz and they sent me this:

Challenges and Fun Stuff

This time of year the girls are giddy and excited. Lexi thinks Christmas is tomorrow, she says that everyday. They want to touch and open presents. I think it's almost too much for them to handle. It's really cute and adorable, I just love their innocence.

This year we are making a lot of presents. The girls are having a blast doing it, too!! We are making ornaments and hopefully keychains (if I can cut the acrylic).

The final results of our ornaments. We are making more this weekend.

Tonight I did get a little scrappy!!

I did this one for girls. Lookie, CJ I used your new favorite word. :)

I did this little card with a sketch from Sketchy Saturday. I know mine is a little boring but I love the white background.

I did this LO for BASB Challenge. I love this picture of the girls dancing together. They were just having so much fun.

I did this for the 52 sketches challenge. I fell in love with her sketch and couldn't wait to do it. I also adore this picture of Lexi. She was Sharpay on Halloween, therefore she was fabulous!!

Thank you for sitting through all these pictures!!

Love and Hugs!!

Happy Mail!!

Wow did I get some Happy Mail Saturday. My blogger friend in Florida since me such a great package. I can't wait to use those stamps. I'm just love that frog stamp. (I think frogs, should be the next trend) She also made a cute card with Sassafrass Lass Paper. Thanks MaryAngella!!

We finally got the tree up this weekend. We put it up Saturday and now my house feels all Christmassy. All I need to do now is watch White Christmas then I'll be completely ready for Christmas except for the Christmas Shopping, presents and wrapping.

Gigi put the first ornament on the tree and Lexi did the last one. Lexi's out consist of Halloween Shirt and Valentine's PJ Pants. I think she's so cute with her own since of style.

I also did get scrappy this weekend too!! I got a few cards and LO done.

Well I gotta run and make Lexi some Lunch!!
Love and Hugs!!

Cards cards cards

Yep...I'm making cards. Here's a few I made the other night. I hope you like them. They were pretty simple, but I'm getting lots of use out of my cuttlebug!!

This last one was the easiest but it looks really pretty to me. Well I'm off to make some more cards. I wish I could send everyone one but I don't have enough paper. :)

Oh when you write out your cards this year please fill an extra one out for a recovering solider. Gigi wanted to make a card for each solider in our military this year...she's such a sweetie. Lexi doesn't care as long as she gets to play with ink and stamps, she pretty easy. I just adore my girls.
