life is good!



Woohoo! Today is our first Sharing From the Heart Blog Hop for 2012! Thanks for stopping by. If you're hopping with us today, you should have come here from Heather's Blog. Don't worry, if you didn't, you can always just start here and hop to the next great inspiration! As most of you know, I rarely do single pages as I'm a double page layout gal because I want them to match up. Today's layout though is for the FIRST page of my personal 2012 Scrapbook. I scrap all sorts of fun stuff I do hoping that someday, one of my grandchildren will want to know all about me and my life. Yup, these picts were just taken last week and I thought they were perfect to get my book started. I was inspired by a challenge on SB.Com for this month's Lyrics challenge which was to use a Katy Perry Song Title. I chose "A Cup

of Coffee" and snapped these picts with that in mind... I love coffee! I also did this page for the SB.Com Challenge, for "One Month at a Time" to scrap January Pictures, hand write the journaling and use a list. It really worked perfect with this page. I used up my CTMH Roxie Paper with this layout. I really like the new paper packs and how they're designed. I used up all of the paper and feel good that I won't have any lingering pieces in my stash that I need to use up again. My books will be fresh at all times with current papers. I love that idea. Well, the next stop on the Sharing from the Heart Blog Hop is Deb's Blog. I'm sure she's got a great project, page or card to show off for us this month. Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: All CTMH Roxie Paper Pack, Roxie Stickease, Stardust Glitz, Bling Buttons, Opposites Attract Cricut Cartridge

Love your page!! Great inspiration...lol...I was thinking, "she's going to end up making one for the right side and matching up" but I guess not it this is the first page-good for you for breaking out of the mold every now and then.

Gorgeous page! I love the whole layout and your page idea. I'm rarely in my scrapbooks, so I love you idea!

Cute layout, Lela! Makes me want to curl up with a cup of hot coffee. And good for you using up a whole paper pack. Can I send you some of my old packs? LOL.

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
