in the mood for LOVE

Here is the card I created for the first week roadblock challenge at Timeless Inspirations. The heart is made with 3 different ribbons and then I made an outlne with Heidi Swapp bling. This was so fun to make. Can't wait to see what next week's challenges will be...
Oh, and such a nice surprise - my page was chosen to be the featured layout on the store's main page!!!

My latest!

So here is my first layout created for the Crop-azing Race at Timeless In-spirations.
We had to choose between
"Press it or
Dress it."
I chose both, LOL!
I used my iron to adhere Craft-fuse to the back of some of Bren's outgrown Gymbo clothes, and then I cut out the flowers from it. GASP! Yes, I actually took scissors to Gymboree clothing. Just proof that I am totally obsessed with scrapping!
The word "flowers" is Heidi Swapp iron on alphas that I outlined for pop.
The craft-fuse may very well be my favorite thing to do now - I LOVE cutting and making my own embellishments. So fun!

I had my appointment for my yearly GYN appointment. Yeah, I know, totally not fun, but a necessary evil. What I thought was cool, though, is that my doctor spent time talking with me about the new vaccination for HPV. I'm too old for it, you see, but he knows I have a daughter and he gave me the information for me to take to her next pediatrician appointment. From what he tells me, cervical cancer should be practically eliminated in years to come if this vaccine does what it's supposed to. So girls, tell your friends, tell your daughters. The vaccine can be given at age 9.

What else... went shopping today. I've signed up to play in the Crop-Azing Race at Timeless Inspirations. It's a six week series of challenges and the winner gets a spot on the next design team. Pretty cool! Anyhow, I needed some goodies to work on my projects for the week. I went to a JoAnn's on my way home and was pleasantly surprised at the selection there - WAY more stuff than the one close to home, which I seldom go to. Picked up some yummy ribbon and a fun Autumn Leaves stamp. Stay tuned for the layout to be posted soon!

Snowed here, FINALLY. We only got around an inch or less, but at least it stuck. The weather we've had here this winter has been so strange - the kids were wearing sweatjackets outside here until a few weeks ago. This is New England, we are supposed to be icy and snowy here! I'm hoping we'll get a bit more so I can get some pics of the kids outside in the snow this year. My daughter's snowpants still have the tags on them!

So ends another day.
