My new gig...

I have been invited to join the immensely talented ladies over at The Design Experiment challenge blog! I'm very excited to work with these ladies who inspire me. The challenges focus on the journaling which is always a BIG challenge for me so I know it will help me to be a better writer.

Here is this week's challenge:

It's a new year. A time to look towards the future yet also a time to look at the past year and reflect as to what went wrong, and what went tried. The new year is a time to make ourselves and our lives better by fixing what wasn't working for us in 2008. So, for this week's challenge we'd like you to explore this further. Your prompt this week is:

What burdens did you leave behind in 2008? How did you overcome that feeling to just LET IT GO?

And here is my layout:

Oh, and I have a little tip for you!! If you have some clear bling that you want to color, you can paint it with your Shimmerz Paints to change the color! How cool is that? I used Aqua Marine Shimmerz on this Prima bling and also on the ghost butterfly. The paint is not opaque so you can still see the sparkle of the bling through it!

If you haven't tried Shimmerz Paints yet, you can buy them through The Rubber Cafe! This is the website that I design the stamps for! One stop shopping, LoL! Dont forget that if you use the code LR2009 you get free shipping with a $20 order.

Angie at Scrap Scene has a giveaway on her blog today! Make sure you stop by and leave her some love! She is starting to post all kinds of Valentine's creations, my favorite!!

Here is a quote for you on this Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day:

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy Birthday to Cristina. She is pretty much one of my favorite people on the planet! ♥♥♥

Hope it's a good one.
♥love to you♥
