Yawn... oops

Sorry... that yawn has nothing to do with my post... I'm just getting sleepy! LOL!

What's new? Not a lot really... baby is growing... so am I... I already miss the second trimester, now that I'm into the third! :) Back is starting to get sore... harder to get around... sleep is not as comfey... Hip fels like it's going to dislocate on me...sigh..... I told DH that if i keep getting bigger we're going to need a tracter to get me to the hospital!! LOL! He has fun making the "heavy load" beeping sound... Men! LOL!

I have a couple of projects to show you today... first one is one i did a couple of weeks ago for a Scrap Capture at LCOM... It's another word for a scraplift... LOL! I also incorporated the Jan challenge from Magistical Memories into it... which was to create a LO based on your goals for 2010... Here's what I came up with...
in 2010 Just Do It
(sorry for the photography of this LO... I had the WORST time trying to get things to look straight when cropping it... so I decided less cropping was better...)

I love the SEAL IT stamps from My Stamp Box!! I used them here on chipboard as my flower center! Some glimmer mist worked FAB on this chipboard!

The ME I Want To Be
I LOVE Basic Grey's ORIGIN's line... did I mention that before? LOL!
Here's a closeup of the journaling so you can read it....

The design team's challenge was to take the theme of our blog hop and apply the colours of white, pink and orange to their creations.
For my project, I bought a cheap box of heart shaped candy with a clear window on the front. I covered in Patterned paper and glitter. I used a Magistical Memories chipboard flower to accent it, along witha chipboard circle in which I stamped using one of the SEAL IT stamps... my favorite set by far! :)
Inside of the box, I punched out some hearts and stamped on them using sentiments such as Love U and FOR YOU from the MENTION IT set!
Simple way to customize your Valentines day gift!!
Happy Valentines day Sweets!! :)
