Merry Christmas

I thank God for giving us his precious son.  He died for our sins and I am forever grateful. 

I thank you so very much for being loyal followers and I pray that as today progresses and we each spend time with family and friends, that we would share the love.  Tell them how precious they are to you.  Have a very Merry Christmas.

Mistletoe Jam

This is my entry for our challenge this week over at Platinum Scraps.  Each designer could complete any project, it just had to be Christmas Themed.  I designed this project with my cousin in mind who absolutely loved herself some Luther Vandross.  Since it was Christmas, what better title than Luther's song, "Mistletoe Jam".  The blue and silver mimics her sorority colors, blue and white.  I can hear her now, go Zeta's, LOL.  Gotta love the greeks.

Anyway, thanks for looking and may God continue to make your holiday season bright.

Three B's: Brads, Buttons, and Bows

Over at Platinum Scraps, our challenge this week is to create a layout with buttons, brads, and bows.  I immediately knew my title when this challenge was issued.  Didn't have the photos, paper, or even an idea, but I think it came out just fine. I challenged myself this time.  My team mates know that I am so afraid of patterned papers.  In 2011, I want to conquer that fear.  I only used solid cardstock as accents.  I love how it turned out.

This is Symone, ha ha, like yall don't know who she is.  But just in case, this is Nana's very first grandchild and my DD and DS never let's me forget that I am the first, her dad, and her and we are rotten.  I beg to differ but eveyone has their own opinions.

Anyway, this is Ms. Symone on her Papa's truck.  Whenever he puts her back there, she just has a ball.  He always has to chase her down just to get her to come out.



Thanks for always being a loyal follower.  Be sure to come and post a link to your project if you decide to take the challenge to complete the three B's. 

Drum Roll Please........

When I announced my blog candy, I intentionally did not put an end time for comments.  I decided I would truly give everyone until the end of the day (today that is).  So I said hmmmmm, let's make the drawing at 11:59 pm in order to give all my followers a chance.  With that said and the time here, I checked and I have a total of 28 comments on my "City of Lights" Layout.  The winner was selected using RANDOM.ORG

the lucky winner is.....

Tonya you are the layout queen. All of your layouts seem to just pop off the page with all of the little details you always remember to add. Girl, I need you to give me some tutorials.

WrinkleFreeDiva, you have until 11:59 pm on Tuesday night to email me your cart choice.  If you have the new Christmas Seasonals and would like something else, you may select a cart of your choice valued at $25.00.  Thanks for all of my wonderful friends.
