Welcome 2010!!

We had a nice and quiet New Years Eve around the Sivils house. I made some samples for CHA and worked on other projects which I finished about 7pm. We grilled steaks and watched the second season of Dexter (loved it!). We had a great evening with some good down time. Today, Dan and I did some shopping, after about an hour I wanted was thirsty and hungry. Not one thing on my list was done because I seriously am not a shopper!! Too many people, too many choices, and too many decisions to be made! Too hard, I'd rather scrapbook!

Well now that Christmas and the New Year have passed I know no one is ready for another Holiday, but you know Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I have a get paper line for just that occasion!! U R My Favorite is such a fun paper line to work with, I have some great samples below to share with you....
This was created by my very good friend Katrina Hunt. We first met at "Pet Therapy of the Ozarks", we both have therapy dogs. We became friends and then she called me one day about wanting to get into scrapbooking, so I took her shopping for the "basic supplies" and now she's out of control!(You know you are.) She is doing unbelievably fabulous work! Katrina used all U R My Favorite collection is this layout:

Heidi Sonboul, another friend created these great cards and layout! Heidi also does great work and I admire her creativity! I'd love to get this card in the mail for Valentine's Day:

I think this might be my all time favorite card made with this paper collection! Love it!!
For the New Year I thought I'd share another small little peek at one of my paper lines for this spring... (everything is mine except the pink cardstock and the brown ribbon.)

I'll be at Scrapbook Generation all day next Saturday January 9th! I'll have 3 stations with FREE mini classes using U R My Favorite, Willow Bee and Flaming Butterfly my 3 brand new collections, 2 of which have never been viewed by anyone yet!! Scrapbook Generation is hosting an all day "Nikki Sivils Day" so sweet of them! Go check out their site for all the details, they are even going to have a CHOCOLATE fountain. They've been so great to me in helping my launch my company!! Thanks to all of you at SG!!

I hope you all had a great New Years! I'm not making any resolutions this year, actually I rarely do (too much pressure), I'm just wishing for health and happiness for all!!
Happy New Year from Dan & me!!
