Caitlin's Layout

Hello all,
  This is my first layout for Creative Scrappers.  I usually do my layouts with Close To My Heart, but fell in love with this sketch and couldn't resist playing around with it.
  I used Echo Parks, "Be Mine" collection pack.  I loved all the pink.  Even though I use Close To My Heart I still buy other papers.  I've got quite the collection going as I don't know what to do with them.  I also used my Spellbinders dies and the Art Philosophy cartridge that you can get thru Close To My Heart.
  The picture is of my daughter Caitlin when she was two and we lived in Florence Oregon at the time and we were at my bosses house.
  Well, that is all for now.

Magnolia USA

Hello all,
  I just got finished with this Tilda with Daisy.  I just loved coloring her.  I really love Tilda's, I think they are just so cute.
  I'm going to make this post short and sweet as I have to get ready for work :(.  I am going to enter this card to Magnolia Down Under Challenges.

Magnolia Valentine

Hello Everybody!
  Hope everyone is in good health and are enjoying these frosty days that we've been having.  We're supposed to be having ice accumulation but I've not seen it yet.  Thank goodness....hate driving in the stuff.
  So, here is my take on a Magnolia Valentine.  I just received my Koala Hugs in the mail and couldn't resist coloring her up.  Isn't she just the cutest!  I'm so glad that Diana got her in because I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her.  I also ordered Tilda with a small gift and Tilda with a Daisy.
  Plus, today I'm excited because I got in the new Copics!  I can't wait to try them out either.  All the colors look so purty!
  I'm still battling the depression and bipolar disorder.  I'm back to work now and I have to fight myself to stay at work.  Some days are rougher than others but I'm still hanging in there.
  I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
  Well, I guess that is all for now.  I need to go so I can pick up my son from Cadet Challenge.  He is in Jr ROTC and just loves it.  We also go this week for him to test for the learners also.  Oh boy.

2012 Smash Book Journal

Hello All,
  Well, Christmas is over and It's that time of year when we plan and start new beginnings!  I am well onto my journey.  I actually started on December 2nd lol.
  Over on Suzanna's site:  Scrapbitz.ning she has started an area called We R Smash Bookin!  So head on over there now to see what all the hooplah is about!  I am sure you all will be as excited as we are!
  One of my goals is to eat healthy for weight loss.  My husband has promised me a trip to the Bahamas!  Yes, that is right....the Bahamas if I can get my weight down.  So, of course I put a picture of the Bahamas on my first page!
  Now, I made my first page pretty simple/basic.  I didn't go all out because I don't think I'm that creative.  But, that is one of the things on my wish list is to be more creative so we'll see what the next page and challenge brings!
  Happy New Year everyone!
