On the 1st February there will be a very special ‘One Off Challenge’………with some rather special candy as the main prize. No ordinary candy I can tell you, but a really serious piece of equipment that all of us would love to have in our craft rooms.
I just know you will all want to get involved and join in so here’s what you need to do now:
1) Give the challenge a plug on your own blog.
2) Add the logo above to your sidebar with a link back here .
3) Link up and leave me a comment on this post to tell me Brenda have done that so she can enter you into the prize draw for this first part of the challenge.......the winner of that prize will be drawn by Random Org on 31st January.

I did ink up the edges so the layers would be defined. But hey, if you are a regular here, you know I have a love affair with ink!
Now it's your turn to show us your creative use of patterned paper. The deadline to enter is Saturday at 5:00 ET and the prize is a gift certificate to JuJu Bees. Don't forget to check our the Monday side bar for Practical Scrappers, as my sisters have created some beautiful projects for your scrapping inspiration!
Thank you for stopping by my blog during the Practical Scrappers Designer Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be participating! Because I am such a "hopeless romantic", I have created this layout to share with you. This hop is all about the "love."
Here is a close up of the journaling. When Ben and I were married 13 years ago, our wedding vows were from the book of Ruth:16-17. I just thought that was the perfect touch for this page.
I'm giving away a 6 X 6 sweet romance album as a prize for the blog hop. All you have to do to qualify is become a follower here and leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner on Monday, January 25th so make sure to check back in!

Today is Wednesday, and that is time for a new challenge for Penny's Challenges. Before I get to the challenge, thanks to all of you who played along in our chalk challenge. This week you need to use inchies on your project. I kind of struggled with this one. I was so focused on the image being an inchie. Then I remembered this punch by Creative Memories and it all fell together. This is a very simple card, but I love it! Don't forget to visit my team sisters and leave them some love. Their links are in my side bar. You are certain to find inspiration once you arrive! I hope you'll play along with us!

The rules for this one are to pass on to tree friends who blow you away with their creativity and then name ten things that knock my socks off. Oh how difficult to just choose three! I'm truly inspired by every bog I read! So here are the three for this award Brenda, Mona, and Laurel.
Now on to the 10 things that knock my socks off:
1. God and His glory. He provides for me in all ways and he is my source of strength and inspiration.
2. My family. I'm so lucky to have my 83 year old Granny, my Honeybee, and all my nieces and nephews. My family is my life! I love you all!
3. My friends, I have a mass amount off friends in my circle. Those I see and those of you in blog land. Each of you are so very special to me and I cherish our friendships!
4. Coffee, I love my coffee and latte's! I'm having some french vanilla as we speak.
5. My favorite thing in the world to watch my Ashlea dance! Baby girl you have a talent that God has blessed you with, "Dance like no one is watching!"
6. I love how excited Jon-Christopher gets when he is spending time any of us fishing, playing games, or watching movies.
7. The excitement of my kids learning new things, and being able to teach them in a fun way!
8. I love the freedom that I have and remember where it comes from everyday, thank you soldiers!
9. I'm so happy staying at home in my pj's and blogging.
10. Tybee Island and Savannah Georgia are my all time favorite places to visit to just unwind and breathe.
