So the cat is out of the bag :)
Roughly one year ago, I was presented with an awesome opportunity. Couldn't believe it at that time, but grateful all the same. Thank you Liz, Beth and CK :) Now I can't wait to get the book in my chubby hands!
There will be a 52 challenges group, blinkies and a possible party at Liz's blog! Stalk her, okay? LOL.
Now, I don't do cats, in real life, really. I am squeamish and will avoid living, furry creatures. Cats, hamsters, dogs, rabbits and the likes (terrified of dogs, super terrified, was chased by one small black, fierce dog when I was 10!). Mind you, I find them cute when they're at least 15 feet away - 45 feet if it's a dog, though.
That paragraph up there, is just for the record, you know? LOL. Just in case some little girls managed to trick their daddy into buying them some furry animals as pets. Just sayin'. . I am not goin' anywhere near it!
Right, now let's share something :) I just adore the 'krafty' color of JilliBean papers. So oh so yummy! And I really wanna use the beautiful set of "Butterflies of The World" playing cards I got sometime ago :)
There has never been a day when I have not been proud of you, though some days I'm louder about other stuff so it's easy to miss that.
I got those words from StoryPeople.com . I subscribe to them and very so often, the stories touched something deep inside. Something I can totally relate to. And when i got this story a while ago, I thought of Neha. Neha, my beautiful pride. She is my eldest and it's easy to forget that she is only 9 sometimes.
I think I'm a great mom (you already know that, don't you?*grins*), but a loud one too. Loud about other things like homeworks, cleaning up your room, stop bugging your sister, eat what is served. . you know, things like that! LOL. I need to be loud in telling them I am so very proud to be the one they call mommy :)
The layout pic, you can actually see Neha scooting in the background. I didn't crop that out on purpose! *grins*
Shipping tag, Scarlet Lime stamp, clear embossing powder, Tim Holtz fired brick distress ink, MM clip, velvet paper (can't remember who made that, sorry... been in my stash for at least 2 years). Beautiful - Autumn Leaves stamp, vinyl thickers. Thread.
Prima flower, distress and normal stickles. Hambly teal brocade love.
Jenni Bowlin ticket, Heide Swapp blings, MM Brad, that velvet paper again, backing paper of the BINGO card from Jenni Bowlin. I cut them out and used a few across the page. Too cute to ignore the packaging, besides the tiny size is perfect for this page.
Prima swirls, Label Tulip stamp, Jenni Bowlin and velvet paper (again, I know, LOL). The white and green felt flower is actually a MM Paperclip, I took it apart and only used the flower part, tossed the actual clip into my drawer. I'm sure I will find a use for it later.
I'll see you soon!
