Queen of my Life

For my fourth layout for Color Me Miki, I used it also for my Journaling Junkie challenge. I used this stitched paper from Prima. It is just so beautiful that you can hardly add anything else to the layout. I added Prima flowers for dimension. I also used the journaling block from Webster's Pages and a set of queens from a deck of cards (I don't think my girls will notice that their cards lack queens. LOL!) Since my American Crafts letters lack the letter "E" I used the number 3's and turned them around. Did you notice? :D

Title: Queen of my Life

Journaling: My life is far from perfect. I have said words and did actions that I regret. And yet, if I could change something in my life, I don't think there's anything I'd really want to do differently. I have learned to accept myself, my weaknesses and my flaws. I wouldn't be who I am now without all these. I have learned to be Queen of my life.

Guest Desinger for Color Me Miki

I am giddy with excitement! Terri of Color Me Miki asked me to be GDT for January to March and could I say no to that? LOL! Gosh! It took forever for the kits to come. I trooped to the post office all three times to check if my package arrived. Finally, my friendly postman came last Monday bearing the goods. And I was literally jumping up and down!

Tha January kit "Love is in the Air" is just so yummy! The papers and embellishments are so beautiful! I couldn't wait to start working on my layouts. I made a total of 4 layouts with this kit.

Life is Good

Journaling: I love this photo! It reminds me of how blessed I am to have a wonderful husband, three adorable and beautiful girls and another one coming soon! Indeed, I am blessed! Indeed Life is Good!

Growing Family

Journaling: Marla, Gerry and Margaux were in CDO for New Year's Eve. On new Year's Day we had a family picture. We eventually found out that we 3 sisters are pregnant! Next year's family pic would have three more babies! How fun!

Soon-2-Be Moms

Journaling: Early this year, we were all surprised to find out that all three of us are pregnant and our babies will be 2-4 weeks apart! How fun! Our children will be instant friends! We are looking forward to those days, especially our parents. 19 January 2010

The fourth layout is also my entry to the Journaling Junkie challenge. Will post that next week. Thanks for looking!

The January Kit is still available at the Color Me Miki Store. Checking out the Miki Mart for others items you might like. :D

Blessed 2009

My first layout for the year is a double layout! Wow! I haven't done double layouts in a long time and wasn't sure if I wanted to continue or not. But I wanted to include all the pictures so I just treaded on. It turned out pretty okay, I think, plus I was able to use the rest of my American Crafts 6th Avenue papers. :D This is for Journaling Junkie's challenge for the week.

2010 Calendar

Every year, I create a calendar album for my mom and my mother-in-law that showcases pictures of my children. I'm five days late this year because of the hectic holidays but better late than never, I guess. :D

I got to use my American Crafts 6th Avenue Papers! I love this line and bought it years ago but haven't finished all the papers. I though this was a great way to lessen my paper stash and still be creative. :D I also got to use my Sizzlit Swirl die a lot. Something I really like. Noticed how I altered some positions of the die cut making each page different.

Thanks for looking!

Junior Golfer

This is my first post for 2010! Happy New Year everyone! I haven't scrapped yet but I have a lot of ideas in my head and some GD stints this year. So much to look forward too! In the meantime, here's a layout I finished last year but failed to post. I used Pencil Lines Sketch 163 for this layout. :D Thanks for looking!
