Crop Suey January Challenge

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a merry holiday season. January's challenge is up at Crop Suey!!

We challenge you to use the following ad to get your inspiration for your scrappy project/layout/card or whatever you choose to do!

As soon as I saw this ad I knew that I wanted to do something about the future and about hands. Parker's little fingers get so abused day-in and day-out as we check his blood sugar (using a small needle) on average of 8-10 times a day (more when he's sick - which is alot). He never complains and trust me - it hurts! I have tried it and it's worst then smashing your finger in the drawer. So I had to do a page based on that. I am loving Tara Anderson and Jen Johner right now and wanted to use them as inspiration for my page. I love the BG Pyrus papers but they were too busy for this page so I painted the background and of course used some spray paint a-la-debee. LOVE how this page turned out. Even love my handwritting on it! Sorry pics aren't great as usual! The bottom is really even but curled up and didn't secure it down!

Make sure to check out Crop Suey to play along as we have a great sponsor - COSMO CRICKET!!! Just love their products!
Happy New Years! What are your resolutions? I have lots of personal stuff going on right now so my main personal one is strength. I need to find and restore my inner strength as I have to find it within myself to move on after some very big/scary decisions that I have made in the past couple of months. I am scared silly as to what 2011 is going to bring. On a scrappy note - I am going to make the same resolution as last year - I want to make 20 no make that..... 40 projects using my stash and I am not allowed to purchase new items (unless it's adhesive). Shouldn't be too bad as I have been loving making items for hello *there* and using my stash....promise - pics to come - there are lots of goodies to share!
Bye for now!
