2009- What a YEAR!

Seriously! What a year of growth, laughter, changes & opportunity. Amazing to think what this next year will bring, isn't it? What goals & aspirations will be accomplished? What bumps and diversions will be met along the way? What people will I meet that will impact my life? I have met some amazing people this year who have made their mark. Thank YOU! :)
I can't wait for 2010! I truly believe that each challenge & success is inevitable and a part of my journey.

Let me take you on a journey of my crafting year.....just my favorite cards from each Kit Of the Month. You might remember these.............
I also made this LO using the Dec. KOM. It is a recap of some of my favorite pictures from the 2009 year. :)
And here is another peek at the Jan. KOM! :) I used a sentiment from the DEC KOM too. :) Isn't my boy just the cutest? I am SO lucky! :)
Be sure to check out the Unity BLOG & all the Unity dt peeps (listed on the left) for some serious inspiration! :)
I hope you have a wonderful New Year surrounded by those who you LOVE! Cheers!

:) Okay...only 7 more days till Christmas. Are you ready? Not I! HA! But, as many of you know, I work better the closer I am to a deadline SO I will be ready....just not sure WHEN! :)

My baby's ( he isn't a baby) glasses finally came in. Isn't he adorable? Well...he would prefer to be 'cool' rather than cute but I can't help think it! Regardless, I am happy that he can finally see. :)

Just 2 SUPER quick cards with the December Kit of the Month: Delightful Moments. Be sure to hop on over to the Unity BLOG for the list of AMAZINGNESS! :)

We are leaving to go out of town for a week or so. :) I hope that you have a BEAUTIFUL holiday & a Merry Christmas if I am not able to post. I am so thankful for you all and very excited for all the opportunities that may arise in 2010. BIG HUGS & SMILES! :)

LUV Mondays

Don't you? HA!
The Monday Peeps are posting Valentine's cards today. I went with a quick & easy one....imagine that! I stamped the background with WORN GRID and added American Crafts Thickers to a Pink Paislee Cupid Postcard. The brown strip along the bottom is a scrap that I used to make hearts for another card. Some BasicGrey buttons & I am DONE! So easy.

Be sure to check out the other Monday peeps. :)
