Now it’s time to put away the Christmas stuff until next year. Love doing December Daily! Now, I’m cleaning up and organizing my scrapbooking stuff. I’m getting ready to finally finish the mini album I started making for Payton of her Birthday last year. You can see a taste of it here. My goal is to get it done before her next birthday coming up in March. LOL! And, I’ll post it up on my blog as soon as I can get it done. My hubby says What? You have to finish that album? Why don’t you change it to Payton’s almost 6th Birthday! HA HA HA…very funny!

For this fun filler page, I used the Wonderland Collection Sugarland Pattern Paper by Studio Calico. I still love coloring! So, I colored it in using colored pencils by Crayola. For my pretty wintery trees, I colored the trees using a green colored pencil and then added Frosted Lace Stickles by Ranger.

DD2012: Filler Page - Front

I used this phrase sticker from the Sleigh Ride Collection Accent Stickers by Crate Paper. I added some green twine from the Wonder & Wishes Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle tied up into a little bow along with some tiny silver bells. I attached that using a bit of Glossy Accents by Ranger. I love the sound of the jingle bells. It came in a little package that I got from Hobby Lobby for 5o cents (on sale). The package has three different sizes of bells – small (which are cute and so teeny – tiny), medium, and large. The cute, teeny tiny ones are in this close-up photo.

Happy Leap Day, Everyone!

I wanted to thank my family and friends for all the wonderful birthday wishes!

No, I’m not a leap year baby. It was not a leap year the year I was born. So, it wasn’t even close. It didn’t feel like my birthday…probably because it was a weekday. A typical, normal weekday…drop off Caitie at school, run some shopping errands, and pick up Caitie from school. I still had a great day! I think my favorite part yesterday (besides a NO COOKING for me day!) were the birthday hugs, kisses, and wishes! A lot of them! LOL! Thanks!

I wanted to share a LO I just finished that definitely holds SO much meaning for me right now at this very moment. I just turned 35…pretty big, huh? Yeah, I would say so. What’s the big deal turning 35!? Well, this is the year. The year I find my true path. I will get there. This year. I received the ENTIRE Follow Your Heart Collection by My Mind’s Eye and Rhonna Farrer for my birthday. A wonderful collection! A wonderful gift! I just love it! Thanks, Sue and Vic! How perfect is this background paper I used for my LO!? I LOVE the Lord of the Rings…did not read the JRR Tolken books…love the movies. I’m looking forward to the release of The Hobbit movie. Oh, I can’t wait!
