Lotsa *LOVE*, CMK layouts & just life in general....

My sweet SWEET family :) I made this clipboard to hang in my scrappy room!

I {{LOVE}} love! I mean really! :) I've been such a lucky girl to be married to such a wonderful man for almost 18 years now. Sometimes he's FULL of fun surprises like this.......

Am I *NOT* a lucky girl? My sweet husband gave this to me for Valentine's Day. I wasn't expecting this and it left me pretty much taken aback! I love this man! God sure knew what he was doing when he put us together. :) I thank HIM daily!
I love my new's so shimmery, so pretty!!

Now if that wasn't enough...he had this simple yet sweet card with it...isn't it the CUTEST??

Inside it says..."....come in anytime. Happy Valentine's Day! I love you...Alan".


At Create My Keepsake
this month, Tinkering Ink is our Design Team sponsor...I was lucky enough to get to work with the "Beloved" line for my very first DT assignment. This is what I came up with...
You must go to the Tinkering Ink gallery at CMK to see all the fabulous work everyone DT did!!

My sweet girl Savannah on her 17th birthday :)

This sweet little girl is Alexandra. She belongs to one of my very best friends, Lisa :)

This is my sweet hubby Alan :)

I also made that clipboard you see above. I LOVE how it turned out. I can't WAIT to see it hanging up in my scrappy room once I get it finished :)

This past week has been spent with family. My sweet uncle (my dad's brother) had a stroke a few days ago and as he was falling he hit his head pretty good. He's in the ICU in a Plano hospital recovering. They expect him to recover slowly but surely. He's still quite a bit disoriented and told everyone he wants to go home! :) If you could say a prayer for him and his fast recovery. :) Thank you so so much!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and that your week ahead is the most fabulous ever!

I'm off to finish some much needed layouts....hugs everyone!
