Some new stuffs...

It feels sooooo... good to get some of my mojo back! I finally got around to scrapping my New Year's resolutions:



This LO was also for Elsie Flannigan's 52 Scrapbooking Challenges that I am participating in over at the Poppy Ink boards. The first challenge was to journal on strips of cardstock. Okay, so I didn't use cardstock...I used masking tape. But, same principal. This week's challenge is to select a single black and white photo, and create a LO around it. I haven't quite figured out what I am doing yet, but I will post it as soon as I am done.

I actually busted into my January PI kit just a little bit to make this card:



It's for one of my PI girl's birthday. I'm not as into this kit as usual. The colors aren't really something that I usually use in my work, so it has been a bit challenging to work with. Plus, I'm really into Valentine crafting right now, and I adore all of the traditional pinks, whites and reds when it comes to this holiday. V-Day is not my fave holiday...by a long shot. But, I am VERY into crafting for it. ;0) Here's a little wreath I made as a birthday gift for the same gal that will be the recipient of the card above:



It is made entirely out of vintage buttons. And, fortunately, due to the postal holiday on Monday, I was able to enjoy it hanging in my home for one more day! ;0) I've been making lots of other Valentine gifts too. But, I'll parcel out the eye candy throughout the week. So, until next time...
