Today is a start of a Brand New Progressive Challenge over at CDAC (Crafters Digital Art Center) and the theme is Into the New Year.

What that means is as long as you are proactive by making and submitting cards to this challenge you will continue to get freebies offered in a large variety of styles. These images are created by the artists that have groups here on CDAC and by those that participate in the CDAC drawing Challenges. This is a fun way to get and use fabulous images that will be offered during these challenges. You will have a full two week to enter the challenge, so not only will you get these images free (if you started with cdacpc9), but if you participate in each of the challenges during that series you will go into the drawing for the Grand Prize. EVERYONE that plays is a winner, because EVERYONE that plays earns the next challenges images for free. Repeat the process again, and you will receive the next freebies again and so on and so on.....

Happy Birthday to my Baby

Today is very Bitter Sweet For Me.  My little one is 1 Years Old Today.  2011 seriously went by so fast.  It's bitter sweet because, I can't have anymore kids since I had my tubes tied already.  Ya'll probably think I'm crazy 4 kids and I would still want more.  They are just such a joy to have though and they bring me and my hubby so much Happiness.

Here is a look back of a few LO that I made for him

Happy 1st Birthday Alexander Kai, Love you so MUCH!

Welcome 2012, hopefully you don't go by as fast as 2011 did, LOL!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve Celebration.  Wishing you all a very Healthy, Safe and Prosperous New Year!

To all my Friends, Followers and visitors of my blog, I just wanted to say a very special thank you to ALL of you.  I appreciate you following and visiting my blog.  I really really enjoy reading all the Sweet Comments you leave me, thank you so much for inspiring me to share my love of creativity thru this blog. Last year has been the best year for me not only on my personal life but also my crafty life.  I can't wait to start the New Year!

I was looking everywhere for a wine bottle to put this in but we don't have wine at home since we don't drink,  I mean I love fruity alcoholic drinks, just not wine, LOL
I used my spellinders for this on, I forgot which label, sorry:}
Before I printed out my image from Cindy's Digi called Happy New Year Owl, I already added the sentiment in using my PSE 5.

Hope you like it.
