Twenty Ten:)

I can't believe I missed blogging Xmas and the New year - hope every got on Santa's noice list and had a totally awesome kick off to the New Year!

I can't believe it's 10 years since 2000 - amazing and so much has happened....

Anywhoo - this year for me is about focusing on being a better me...getting healthier, enjoying life more, cherishing those around me and exploring what may be.... no resolutions so won't be scrapping them as I never stick to them but if I aim to focus on the above I am sure I will become a better Moi!

I ahve been up to a little scrapping so will share - I finished all 52 pick up challenges over at LSBS and so proud I finished - a bit of a rush to the finish line so here is the last few things I made. A huge Congrats to Debij who won the prize and to all the gals who completed all challenges and those who had a go!

This was a chaleenge from Helen J to make a note holder- simple and quick but totally gorgoues!

This was the last challenge from Belle - you had to use at least 14 ribbons and staples - yep they are all there :) The gorgeous Janine Kay took this pic - all thoguh it's not all smiles it's my boys at the moment and I love it:)
This was a challenge from Tracey to use a templete to make your own embellishment - I used a flkower template frrom the web...another lovely pic of my oldies from Janine:)
This was the last challenge from Belle all about ditressing and I totally was distressed ripping one of Corey's painting up but how cool does it look:) this is is taken by Cariisa Little from Bella Piccolo photography.

Tracy set a mixed media challenge and I did this little heart - will be going postal to a friend shortly :) the heart was made by another scrapper froma vintage swap I did on wicked prioncess site - I don't know who did it but it's perfect - Mwah :)
So I hope you all an an amazing year filled with all you want it to be :)
