CHA projects for Queen & Co.

I had the pleasure again of designing some projects for Queen & Co.'s booth at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) a few weeks ago.  Have you seen the new 2014 Queen & Co's products?  They have some fabulous new paper lines and adorable new embellishments!  I got to play with the new girl line called Darling Diva.  The colors and the patterns are awesome!  Here are a couple of the projects I created.

Here's a close up of my stitched circles filled with some the new Queen & Co. embellishments:

I'll be back with another layout soon!

13 from 2013

Happy New Year everyone!  2013 was a year of change for me with regard to my scrapbooking and crafty priorities.  Early in the year I lost my creative mojo quite a bit, and I realized that I needed to cut back and focus more on other things in my life.  After a three month hiatus from scrapbooking (during which I was quite busy with work-work -- my "day job"), I'm ready to get back to crafting again . . . but on a smaller scale and with fewer commitments and deadlines.  I might even try (gasp*) Project Life this year.  I'll see how it goes. No pressure on myself!  Whatever crafty endeavors I take on in 2014, my priorities are going to be family, friends and health (I'm going to join a gym and start working out for the first time in 12 years!).

I realize I didn't blog very often last year.  In fact, I probably have a couple dozen projects that I never got around to posting.  Here is a sampling of some of my projects from last year -- 13 from 2013:



 I hope your New Year is starting off with a bang!
