Just like the meds I have been taking the last year...caffine also needs to be deleted from my daily intake...I'm have a hard time with this one :) I didn't have any yesterday...but I'm going today!!!

Hopefully once this study is complete I won't need STARBUCKs EVERYDAY...that will be a good thing right!!! lol

Sunday: Digital LOs

This digital LO was made based off a sketch over at Page Plans...It was fun to finally use some of our Cruise photos...I used Crystal Wilkerson's Rainbow Sherbert, which you can find over at 2Peas.

One of my very favorite Digital Designers over the past few months is Pam of PamelaDonnisDesigns...she really makes the best kits! I really love working with them!!!

For this first LO I used one of her new projects...which will be apart of a collaboration available at FunkyPlaygroundDesigns in February the second LO is from her Love Grows kit which will be available at ElementalScraps...also in February.

It's Thursday...time to HIP HOP!!!

WOO HOO its Thursday!!! My favorite day of the week :) Unity has a NEW Release today and its fab!!! You need to check out Time for Travel!

Now onto my projects for this week...I was able to use the NEW Release "Time for Travel" stamp was perfect to FINALLY pull out a photo of our Cruise that me and my hubby took last April.

I was able to take the saying "what a sight!" and stamp directly on my photo...I love how it turned out. I was afraid I would ruin my photo but it all worked out perfectly!

On my second LO I used a few of my favorites...Giggle Grove
- this is a MUST HAVE all will definitely see more LOs from me using these stamps. These beautiful girls are my neices...they live in New Jersey, so we don't get to see them often. It was a lot of fun making a LO about them.

Thank you for stopping by head on over to Lynn's Blog and check out her fab work! :)

Digital Saturday and a Card to Share

This morning I went to the LSS and picked up a few new items I needed for some upcoming projects...when I got home I decided to work on a digital page...At the beginning of the year I had seen that Nichol Magourik over at two peas was going to be doing a FREE online class called "Celebrate the Seasons". I knew instantly that I wanted to participate. I've always been a big fan of Nichol's finally this afternoon I had some free time where I could complete the first assignment.

For this LO I used Crystal Wilkerson's "The 365 Challenge, Jan. Kit" which can be purchased at two peas. I loved the color combo of this was so fun to work with! I also used "lil trees" by Kirsty Wiseman.

Last night I got play around with my new stamp from Unity Stamping Co., oh my gosh - I LOVED this stamp!!! I have always loved this stamp is perfect!!! "BOOM goes my {heart}" check it out for yourself...definitely one of my new favorites :)
