She will be joining us for our December 15th and 30th challenges! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And can I just say how IN LOVE LOVE LOVE I am with Erika's intro she wrote... OMYGOODINESS!!! LOVE IT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Snowflakes on noses and butterfly kisses
Our children, my Husband, first star o’night wishes
My wedding vows sealed with beautiful rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glams, Glimmer Glaze too
Flowers from Prima and Helmars fine glues
Rhinestones from Kaisercraft, Basic Grey Blings
These are a few of my favorite things

Merlots and Malbecs with chocolate as sides
The peace and tranquility of the ocean tides
Anything that Nine Inch Nails writes and sings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the roast burns
When the milk turns
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

How COOL is that?!?!?!? LOVE IT and WELCOME ERIKA!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I also wanted to announce that Nathalie will be our Guest Designer in February! She won my challenge on Yvonne's blog!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYY Nathalie!! I will have more details as February gets closer! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Is your FAVE CELEBRITY a current one, one from the past, or you have so many, you just can't decide?????? We want to see who you would choose!!:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Let's see who our DT have picked! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

First, our GDT Patricia! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) She chose Audrey Hepburn!! I loveeeeeeeeee her and I loveeeeeeeeeeee this LO!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And next, we have Jana's FAVE CELEBRITY Marilyn Monroe!! *sigh* I loved her...and I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee Jana's STUNNING LO! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Hanneke and her FAVE CELEBRITY is Cesar Millan!!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeee how she got all the cute doggy goodies on here!!! LOVE IT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Michelle B. and she made her FAVE CELEBRITY with a twist...she asked her Daughter and her Husband who their FAVE CELEBRITIES were, and incorporated theirs along with hers to make a FAMILY FAVE CELEBRITY lo!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE IT!!!!! And Michelle picked Sandra Bullock as hers (JUST LIKE ME! YAY!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Chris's artistic take on her FAVE CELEBRITY....she couldn't pick one, so she made a collage of several of her FAVES!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE this Chris!! WOW WOW WOW! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And last, but not least is mine, and I also took a twist on my lo.... I didn't include a photo of my FAVE CELEBRITY Sandra Bullock, rather I did a quote from one of my FAVE MOVIES of hers, "Hope Floats" is the quote I used... "Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will.."  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

So, there you have it...these are our FAVE CELEBRITIES...who are yours??? Give us a link to your creation (it can be a lo, a card, an altered item...old, new, doesn't matter...we just want to see you play along!)..... in the comment section of this post by the evening of December 13th and we will announce our winner on December 14th!!!! The winner this time will be getting a $20.00 gift certificate to!!! Talk about Happy Holidays for YOU!! lol! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  Can't wait to see what you create!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
