The new ME?!?!? :):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all... 

If you are here for the Elmer's Craft and Tell Blog Hop... please see this post here :):):):):):):):):):)


Wanted to share my new hair cut/style :):):):):):)

Here is my before hair :):):):):)




And here is the AFTER :):):):):)

And of course, Miss Brookie had to get in the photo :):):)

All gone :):):)


And I wanted to share a layout I made for a challenge over on Crate Paper's Blog... we had a few categories to choose from, and I chose "Scrapbook your Love Story via Crate Paper: Relive the beginning on paper"   
I chose to do a layout about the first time Brian told me he loved me... :)
  
 My title: "3 Little Words" and my journaling: "08.27.05...turn around trip to Laughlin, NV. "Hitch" and "Coach Carter" were the movies playing on the trip that day. You turned to me and said... "I love you" ... those were the most magical words I had ever heard. I had been waiting
for this day. Our journey began then... and I love you more everyday."
I used Crate's Portrait Collection that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :):):):):)

(And yes, that photo is from the trip I am talking about in my journaling... I had a friend take a photo of the day he said "I love you" for the first time!) :):):):):):):)






I also wanted to share a card I made for the latest challenge at Jingle Belles :):):):):):):)  This time they had a sketch from the FABULOUS Kirsty :):):):):):)

Here is her sketch :)
 And here is my take on it... I used the most GORGEOUS papers from 3ndypapir.no :):):):):):) And the ribbon is from Pixie Dust Paperie :):):):):)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)
