Happiness is...

...being married to a wonderful man that loves you for who you are and adores everything you do. Today marks the day that I have been married for 9 years. Happy Anniversary, darling. ;) This is the card I made for him: Next up, my Jingle Belles card for the week! This week, we needed to follow a recipe: white, a present, a bow or knot, and traditional Christmas colors. Here is my card: I know, there isn't a present. I forgot to add that. Pink isn't a traditional Christmas color? It is in my house- pink is a traditional color for every holiday. I added some white crochet lace trim and there is a bow tied around the jeweled branches. Some recipes aren't meant to be followed exactly how there are written. :) I thought I better share a layout today or you guys might think I'm a big tease. So, here's a simple one that I cranked out lickety split! It's not too hard to make a layout when you have adorable pictures to work with! This is Elan on his fourth birthday, this past February 2. Stay tuned... much more to share! I finally got all my projects and layouts photographed and uploaded today. Yay!

  2. Great job on the Jingle Belles card! One of my dearest friends would totally agree with you about the color pink. When I make her Christmas card every yr I always make sure it contains a lot of pink!
