Happy New Year!! A time to reflect and to remember!

Happy New Year!! A time to reflect and to remember!

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends! I want to say Thank You to all the friends I have made this past year, and how much I am looking forward to 2011!

I am so grateful for all that I have and all that I have been given and this is the perfect time for me to reflect on what a wonderful year it has been for myself and my family!

I have so much enjoyed visiting all the blogs of my friends and it amazing how much you can learn from each other, make a connection with someone thousands of miles away and have so much fun!

I look forward to another year of fun emails, awesome blog hops, fun challenges and lots of paper crafting fun! 

Here is the card I made for the celebration of 2011. We have a pretty big party with family, friends, food and games.

Now this was supposed to be the ball that is dropped On New Year's Eve, but my Husband looked at it and said he didn't see that at all.... (HMMMMM  he is so NOT crafty)Then little Meg came hopping in and said "cool New Years Ball Mom" then hopped away. So I'm not sure!

I used the Wild Card to cut the window card and celebrate and Accent Essentials to cut the circles. I cut two of the layers to hide the string that is holding the ball.

To Remember:

This day is always a day for me to remember my Dad. He unexpectedly passed away 1-1-00.
Not a single day goes by that I don't think of him and all that he has missed.

I am Thankful for the time we had, I am who I am today because of him  and I truly am my Father's Daughter.

Here is a photo of us it is from about 30 years ago:
 Never Forgotten, Always Missed!

It really is hard to post such personal stuff so my special thanks and prayers to Georgiana
