So What Happened Was...

We got the Flu in December. Aaagh! Believe it or not, I am STILL coughing. My brother told me he heard or read somewhere that there was this "thing going around" called the 100 Days Cough. At the time {early January maybe?} I didn't want to believe him. But now that I am closer to having had a cough for almost 100 days, I WANT TO believe him!! It means I will stop coughing soon, woohoo!! Don't get me wrong, I am MUCH better now and the cough attacks are very few these days. They mostly happen when the allergens tickle my throat too much. {Uh, that sounded kind of dirty didn't it??? Where are my iPhone Emoji when I need them?? Haha!}
Anywhooo....enough about coughs and the flu and onto some crafty goodness!

First, let me catch you up a bit:
~I did not, I repeat, I DID NOT finish my December Daily this year and I am STILL working on Project Life 2013. I have decided that I will not complete the separate album for DD and will simply add our December Dailies to December PL. Whew! You got all that, right? 
~I was asked to be a Design Team member for the Project Life Card swap group I belong to on Facebook...EEEK!! I was so super excited, and I still am! I have been blogging over there twice a month, so be sure to check out the PLCS tab at top which has links to read my post.
~I FINALLY got a Selphy CP900 photo printer which  I have yet to use! It's just so intimidating, hehe! I did try to print some pics for some invites I was making and they didn't turn out well at all. I am sure I need to be looking at YouTube videos or something for tutorials and what not.
~I am going on a Scrapbook Retreat with our Local FB group! So stinkin' excited!!

I'm sure there is more that I am missing, but I am now battling an ear infection {I know, I know--when does it end??}. I have never been a sickly person but I have had my run ins with anxiety, increased muscle pain,  and what not since my "year with Mono". I definitely have to take better care of my self, which reminds of one more thing I forgot to share--my One Little Word for 2014: BE.

I will tell you more about that on my next post. In the meantime, here are a few things I've worked on this year: 

 I made this PL card with some goodies received from one of our sponsors, Trees to Treasures. Here, you can see a close-up of the card and then where I used it in my PL album. Trees to Treasures  specializes in custom wood veneers. For more info on TTT and this card, please visit the PLCS blog.

 I made these PL cards for one of my blog posts on the PLCS blog about finding inspiration everywhere. For more details, please visit the blog HERE

My first layout of the year!  I made this LO there as part of a challenge to use multiple pics, a doilie, and a Project Life type card. For this LO I used some paper from an old Fancy Pants collection, Love Story;  'Love Day' card from the same collection; random papers from my stash for the layering; Thickers from my Marshall's finds; You & Me sticker from Cosmo Cricket; brads and buttons from my Stampin' Up! stash; a doily; some black rhinestones from JoAnn's store brand; arrow sticker from Paper Studio; and I stamped the word 'Forever' in black Palette ink using my new Heidi Swapp stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today!
