~* L-O-V-E is IN the book! *~

Valentine's Day is HUGE for me!
It's my favorite ~*pink*~ holiday.
I'm known for sending Valentine's Day photo cards
instead of Christmas photo cards!
I bribe the kids every year to get
those treasured portraits, and this year will be
no different (to their dismay!)
Here's a few pages from my LOVE book.
I'll add more embellishments after I unpack them,
whenever that is.
Some good news, one of the buyers who came to our house
liked it and has it on their list.

So maybe 2010 will start out really great afterall!
Here's wishing everyone a fabulous 2010!
Thank you all so much for your
continuous inspiration and friendship!

~* aLtErEd LOVE bOoK*~

In sheer frustration, I had my husband go to the storage unit to bring
me a box of my scrapbooking supplies because I am seriously going nuts not being able to create anything while our home is on the market. (Did I mention the staging lady told me that it looked like someone "threw up" in my studio!!!) HMPH! Needless to say, I had to remove almost everything in there. 15 boxes!
It's been two long months and I need to get my stuff back! So in the one box he grabbed, I had this Heidi Swapp book binder designed by the talented

Janet Hopkins of House of Three. These books are awesome. I only did the cover so far and I used sparKly glitter Mod Podge, which I admit to never using before! I started layering and topped it off with this beautiful cherub embellishment from BlueMoon Scrapbooking. And some dangling bling from Teresa Collins!
The inside of this album allows for so many possibilities, I can't wait to get started on that. But I'm out of the house now for a showing,
so cross your fingers everyone! I can't take much more of this house cleaning!

~*my FaVoRiTe pInK holiday is coming up!*~

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
Ours was quiet, just the four of us.
My mother-in-law is back in the hospital,
but we couldn't get back to Boston this Christmas.
I actually had some time to create,
which was very therapeutic.
Here is a sneak peek of an upcoming project I did for the Paris line!
Stay tuned for February!
I had a giveaway for those who joined
the Paris Hilton Creativity Collection fan club!
This is in the early stages, and once the line is sold around the world,
this will be quite an awesome gallery for the girls to
submit their creations with the line and be able to get
inspiration from others.
So my lucky random winner using is MICHELE!
I'm sending her something sparKly! Congrats Michele
and thank you SO very much to those
special friends who signed up!
I really appreciate it!
Wishing all of you all the BEST in 2010!

~* a PiNk and WHITE cHrIsTmAs!*~

So here is my pink Christmas tree!
And if you look closely outside the window,
it looks like we'll be having a white Christmas!
This is a first for me, being a San Francisco girl-
but a white Christmas in Dallas? That's pretty rare!
Actually I just found out it's been 80 years since Dallas had a white Christmas! So beautiful!
Merry Christmas friends!
Wishing all of you the very best!

~* pLaYoFf bOuNd??? *~

It's been awhile since I've done a football post,
and I'm VERY excited about this football weekend!
First I thought San Francisco was out of the run
for the playoffs, but now we're back in the hunt.
We have a HUGE game tomorrow against McNabb and staff.
My poor team is gonna be playing in a snow pit!

I know Dallas is cheering for SF, for once! They need us to beat Philly!
So are my New York Giants fans!
The Cowboys have their hands full with New Orleans tonight!
That will be a great game!
Both of my fantasy football teams are in the playoffs
by some miracle!
I'm crossing my fingers BIG TIME this weekend!
So to the football girls out there,
hope all your teams do well and playoffs are in your future!
Go Niners!!

~* sPaRkLY hOlIdAy KeEpSaKe gIfT BoXeS *~

As many of you know, most of my scrapbooking studio is currently packed away in a storage unit while our house is on the market. And I'm going CRAZY being unable to create anything these past couple of months!
I wanted to make Paris Hilton's Holiday Keepsake Gift Box idea featured in the teen section at this month. I loved the idea of using a layout on the gift box, I had never seen that before!
So I ran and bought another paper trimmer, a glue stick, some glue dots, and a few decoupage boxes. Those basic items and a few pieces from the Paris Hilton line was all I needed to create the gift boxes shown.
I created the layout for the keepsake gift box above using the My New BFF theme kit and the Flowers and Lights paper pad from the Paris Hilton Creativity Collection. I covered this box with purple paper, and adhered my layout on top. Very simple, yet it looks so elegant.
Then I was in the crafting mood (after being deprived for so long!) so I created the box below using the Flowers and Lights paper pad again (I LOVE that paper pad!) I made some layered flowers from the paper pad for the top and glittered them with tons of Stickles. I glued some trims around the top edge and my gift box was done. So much more personal that gift wrap! Who wouldn't love getting a package like this?

This is such a fun project! Moms and daughters, create these gift boxes together and have fun being creative!
All of the instructions to create these pretty gift boxes are given
on, so check it out!
You can see all of Paris Hilton's The Creativity Collection at:
And keep your eye out on their website for some exciting news
that's coming VERY soon!!!!
