Lasting Memories Ch #70 - "Getting to Know you"

Hi All!  Well this is an exciting day for Lasting Memories Layout Challenges!!  It's the start of our new challenge term with a whole new DESIGN TEAM!!  I'm not sure if I have mentioned previously... but a few months ago, Karen, (LM Owner), asked me to stick around with her on a permanent basis and be her V.P.  Smiles from ear to ear!!!  Well... I of course gladly accepted!!  I LOVE being a part of this team!  So many fun layouts have adorned my books... not to mention it is such a great group of Ladies!!  So I hope you will keep reading and join our very first challenge of 2012!!  We also have lots of fun things on the horizon.  Something every day of the week for you to learn, see and enjoy!!  Now...  Here is what I created...

Soo... LMCB # 70 is all about "Getting to know you."  That's right!  We want to learn something about YOU!!  This can go so many different directions.  I decided to do a layout about some of "My Favorite Things."  Besides the obvious of Hubby, Kids, Friends, Family etc. etc... I decided to share with you a few things that make me "Tic" from day to day.  Living in my early 40's, I have learned to not sweat the small stuff and that it is the little things that fill in the spaces between all of life's happenings!!  Gotta think of yourself just as much as you might be thinking about everyone else!!

So... I could have put about 50 things on this layout... but showed a Rich cup of Hot Cocoa, My new fav comfy shoe.. TOMS, a good glass of Pinot Grigio, My music of Adele, Lady Antebellum, Kelly Clarkson and we can't forget the all important Paper crafting stash.  The color scheme of Black, Pink and White is also one of my favorites ... and then to complete... I included the lyrics to the song from Sound of Music... "These are a few of my Favorite things." 
I hope you enjoyed learning a few tidbits about ME.  Would love to see something about YOU!  Come on over and join us at LMCB #70 and link up your layout by Saturday, January 14th at 9pm EST. 

I am also entering my layout over at the The Paper Variety... where it's all about Black and White with a 'kiss' of color.  Black, White with PINK is my choice.  You have until January 13th to go check out TPV.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Craftin' and Scrappin'!!!

Supplies:
Cardstock Stampin' Up... Pink Pirouette, Basic Black & Whisper White, Night and Day DSP
Embellies:  Black button from A-Muse, SU white baker's twine, Black and White striped ribbon from my stash, Title letters from my stash (sorry.. threw packaging away), Handmade flowers from Petaloo.
