*OLW for 2011* :):):)

Hi all.....

You were all right....stop thinking about it and your word will come to you... and it did :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

My OLW for 2011 is...........

I have to have it.....
I have to know that it will lead my family in the right direction....
I have to know that it will help us make the right decisions.......
I will have faith this year...... 
It will happen...I just need to have it..... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Now to share some craftiness!!!! This first one is a day late....but yesterday seemed to slip away from me.....but it was for the last posted sketch for "The Studio" :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Here is the sketch.... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is my take... I used some YUMMY Crate paper and flowers made by the amazing Tessa Buys from her Precious Paper Etsy shop! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I also did the January sketch for ArtfulDelight!!!! Again, I used Crate Paper and flowers from Tessa's Etsy Shop! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Here is the sketch.... :):):):):):)

And here is my take! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And the latest challenge is live over at Scrapping the Music!! This time its a song from the movie, "The Wonders Boys") and the song is...."Things have changed" from Bob Dylan!!! Everything I used on this lo is from! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 And a few reminders before I head out of here.... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Fave Things latest challenge is live.... "These are a Few of My Favorite Things!"
And so is the latest challenge over at Nikki Sivils blog
Also.....don't forget all about the DT call over at FAVE THINGS! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  36. Youb know, that is probably the best word one can have- it's so powerful and crucial for our well being. I want to donate a word to you- REST! I don't know how you do so much in so little time!!!!You're a machine!! These layouts are very cool, and I love that huge rose on the last LO. May have to go shopping for that! BTW, my condolences for the NY Giants. Of course, we won't even talk about the Niners and their pathetic season. New coach on the way, thank God. xOxO

  37. I love your 2011 word! I think we can all use more Faith in our lives.
    I have faith that you will follow through and do what you need to do for your family. :)
    I am digging those pretties from Tessa's Etsy! I'll have to "heart" that one. :)
