BasicGrey Challenges # 22....Hearts...All The Things Love!!!!

This week at BasicGrey Challenges we are challenged to use "Hearts" as it is Valentine's Day after all! The other DT members have really outdone themselves this week!!! I found all their creations to be so beautiful and inspirational, so, I hope you go visit their blogs and see their amazing creations and I hope you can join in the challenge this week too! Remember to follow the heart theme and to use at least one BasicGreay product on your creation!

I bought this fab heart-shaped chipboard album at Micheals for $1.50 (gotta love a bargain, smile) and used various BG papers, stickers, brads and buttons on it! I took some inspiration from the title of Bev's fab blog (love it) and thought I would make a mini-book about "All The Things I love"!
This is me and my hubby Chris at my parents house Christmas day! He is definitely my soul mate!
I love this pic of my daughter Hannah...such a natural beauty!!! It was taken last summer camping...she is the sweetest thing!!!!
Chris surprised me for out 10th wedding anniversary with a Caribbean Cruise on Liberty of the Seas!!! He is sooo sweet!!! Now I am totally hooked...just love cruises!!! We are going again in 2010 on Royal Caribbean's, Oasis of the Seas, YAY!!!!!
My two goofy kids at Epcot Walt Disney World, FLA...I am a total Disney freak!!! I think I need another Disney fix and soon!

Well, I heart pretty paper and my favourite cardstock is Bazzill!!! This is me and Mr.Bazzill himself, smile!!! I took a tour of Bazzill cardstock Co. in Arizona when we went there on a family vacation!!!! They were so kind and generous!!!! I left with a fabulous goodie bag chalked full of Bazzill products, like this big pink Bazzill brad!!!
This is me and Snow White, my all time fave Princess!!!!! I would love to be her for a day...that is my dream!!!! Some say there is a bit of a resemblance..what ya think?
I just love Magnolia stamps...it's definitely my thing!!! I love this new Tilda she is sooooo sweet! The "xoxo" is a QK digital download that I cut on my QK Silhouette...I love it too!!!!

I can't live without my yummy coffee!!!!

This is my sweet guy, Kieran!!!! What a cool dude with his new skateboard!!!!!

Well, I think I could have made 10 more pages with all the other things I love like BasicGrey paper, blogging and my Blackberry...well maybe I will just have to make another book,lol!!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can join us this week at the BG Challenges!

Hi Tara,

Thx for the sweet comments. The process was long and messy with the embossing poweder and glitter getting all over the place but worth it...haha.

Beautiful album. I luv the colours. All the photos are so sweet. Where did you purchase the wooden plate stand? I've been looking for one but not sure what size to get for cards. What size do you have?
