Back in the Game!

Happy New Year Everyone!
May 2009 bring you everything you need and hope for!

Well, as noted in my last post of 2008, the end of the year was a little rocky for me to say the least. I am feeling better and ready to start off 2009 with a BANG! Ok, maybe not a bang, but with a crash of bowling pins. Me and my hubby brought in the New Year with a fun-filled evening of bowling, champagne, and a mid-night kiss. I am sure this year will be better than the last.

So I have started scrapping again. Yep, it had been a month since I graced my desk with my presence. But I was determined to get back into this hobby (ok, obsession) that I love so much. So I started simple. (Did I mention that I got to go get some new scrap goodies?? I bought myself the Home Accents Cricut Cart. YUMMY! Love this cart. ) So anyway, I started simple and made a couple easy picture frames for a co-worker.
** "LOVE," "Family," and flourish were cut from the Cricut Home Accents Cartridge

Then, I knew I had to scrap a layout. This was no easy task. But I grabbed some of the new things that I had purchased, (some great rub-ons, chipboard shapes, chipboard phrases, some plastic embellies,) and sat down. I have had this picture that my sister sent me to scrap. I loved the picture, and I don't get the chance to scrap a lot in pink. So here was my chance and I ran with it.

** "Live, laugh, love," Leaves, and flourish were cut with the Cricut Home Accents Cartridge

And last but not least, I took part in the January Card Challenge at Have Your Way With Paper. Here is a card I did for the Spirelli Challenge for Valentine's Day.
** "I heart U," and the scalloped circle were cut from the Cricut Mini Monograms Cartridge

I am so back in the game and look forward to playing some extra innings!
