A few of my favorites from this past year

I just think this little chick is so cute. It was alos a couple of firsts for me. I used Glossy Accents on the umbrella and boots. And I made my own Perfect Pearls glimmer mist spray and used it on the raindrops and then used Glossy Accents after they had dried. Oh yeah, and I used my new at the time Martha Stewart fringe scissors. Love those, makes cutting the grass so easy.



In late 2009, we adopted a tiny stray kitten. So young, I had to bottle feed her for two weeks. We named her Magnolia, or Maggie for short. She has become so dear to me. I swear sometimes she must think she is a dog. She is so funny. Anyway, I hadd to start a scrapbook just for her. This is one of my favorites. I love the simplicity. I also used grungeboard and my crop a dile for the 1st time. I colored the grungeboard circles with SU ink and then stamped the title. Magggie won the fight, by the way.




My daughter has a snowglobe collection, so I had to make this for her.



I made this for the first Cricut Circle monthly challenge. It was also my first home decor project. I love the papers from Sassafras Indie Girl.




These pictures are from quite a few years ago. My how the girls have grown! In real life, the LO has alot of dimension.











I love love this LO. My favorite color is blue, and these papers from Lily Bee Designs are gorgeous. My cousin moved to Australia a few years ago and was in town for a visit this past summer.
