Triple scoop set for January: Clearly Sentimental about Emerson (retail value $15.95)
Not available for purchase until February 3rd.

Sounds good to me, how about you??
For my project this month, I decided to do another wall hanging. I am LOVING these!! Not only did I use the new Pure Innocence stamp, Start the Day with Whee!, but I also used a sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental About Emerson stamp set. Since I was assigned the info on the Triple Scoop, I thought it was only appropriate, :). I started by taking a wooden oval cut out and painting it white. I then covered it with some Bella Rose DSP and sanded the edges. My image was stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel and colored with my Copics. I then layered it with Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette. The white layer is Georgia Pacific paper cut out with my Cuttlebug and Scalloped Square Nesties. I then added some May Arts ribbon to the top and some more SU ribbon on a spiral clip. The sentiment actually hangs down a little off the bottom, and is attached with my ghost flower/button embellishment.
For my next project, I took a planner I got from the Dollar Store and covered it with DP so that it would be pretty.

I am on a mission to get more organized this year and stay ahead instead of behind, so I decided to get a planner so that I can write down everything I need to do, when it is due and all that. It will also keep my schedule straight.....between both jobs, appointments, and my social life....I need it!!

I covered the book with some My Mind's Eye Dp and then added some ribbons to hide the seam . I then stamped 2010 using the new Bling 'Bers set and cut them out. They were then attached to a white panel, which was layered with Cool Caribbean, Regal Rose and Pumpkin Pie. At the last minute, I decided to add brads to each "hole". It took some time, but I like it all shiny and stuff!!LOL!! The book itself is pretty simple, but SO MUCH PRETTIER!!!

Well, that is it for me now!! The next stop on the hop is Amy's Blog. Have fun and happy shopping!!
