Hello 2013!!! OLW for 2013...

Hey, hey , hey blogging friends ! 

Anyone out there , that is ! 

Just a quick pop in - to welcome in 2013 . 

2012 was A FABULOUS YEAR all around for me , personally & in being in the marketplace.

As one might be able to tell here, I haven't crafted at all since my last June 2012 projects. 
At around the same time my 5 year old Canon photo printer totally broke down , my home pc which I use to upload pics from my Canon DSLR also had issues. Technology has a way of getting in the way of craftin',just sayin'.
More than anything else returning to the marketplace simply did not leave me with much time to scrap or for cardmaking.
But that doesn't mean I have forgotten about my crafty blogging friends ,
 who have made my days bright and inspired 
these past 5 years especially ! 
Do stay in touch via Facebook if you haven't added me as friend yet 

In the meanwhile I have started another blog to collect & share quotes & pics to inspire 
while waiting to get back to crafting eventually.

And here's My Word for 2013  - "Fruition " 

-state of bearing fruit.enjoyment, as of something attained or realized.

attainment of anything desired; realization; accomplishment.

It is inspired , in part , by my move to a penthouse duplex unit in a condo of the same name ! 
Seen here , that's my unit on the uppermost floor - my move should be completed not later than mid Feb! woohoo! I have an awesome city view there from the master bedroom terrace. 
Unlike where I currently live , which is a single storey house. 

Here's wishing each & everyone one of my blogging friends 
a bigger and greater 2013 ! 
May it be your best year yet !

Free for all project for Pebbles

"My favourite Pebbles collection to scrap my teenage girl has got to be Hip Hip Hooray.   I had fun mixing it up with some Country Picnic and With Love for this layout.  I love the cheerful, fun and bright colors and patterns together which help to capture my girl's personality.  I also tried using the twist tie embellishments in a different way here - ruffling it up to add some dimension."

Pebbles' Inc Whip It up Project

Here's a project that I whipped up under 30 mins for the Pebble's blog feature last week - 

"Birthday cards are always in demand in my household. The Hip Hip Hooray line is definitely perfect for whipping up quick birthday cards for teenage gals and guys in my kids' lives. I used the same card design here to create both a feminine and a masculine square 6x6 card to save on time, switching out different embellishments to add to the boy or girl theme.  I also tried making my own medallions using the Banner kit for the ribbon tails and dimensional flowers or embossed stickers for the medallion."
