This is what you have to do:
These are the rules:
You must post the rules before you give your answers.
You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name.
After you've been tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details.
L: Loyal, Level-headed, Lovable (well, I guess that just depends on who you ask! -teehee)
Y: Yankee -yep! that was the best I could do. 'Y' is a toughie.
N: Nimrod-yes, WHY you ask, hmm, well only because it took me until the LAST page of 'N's' to realize I could use NURSE!! Ugh!!
Alright, so just WHO do I 'tag'???
Katrina at This, that and a whole BUNCH more
Rachele at The Ink Boutique
Erin at Inky Smiles
I've just been busy I guess......
I didn't have time to take ANY pics of the kids Valentine's. They were cute-simple but cute. I was pleasantly surprised with how they came out AND that they didn't take TOO much time to complete.
For Samuel I just did cellophane bags (SU!) with heart shaped gobstoppers tied with a ribbon and attached the stamped 'Happy Valentine's Day' tag from the Happy Heart Day set-I actually double stamped it on ruby red and cameo coral, used a little fruit punch stickles on the hearts and then punched a heart die on ruby red cardstock using my cuttlebug and did the little to:/ from: on that and threaded it through the ribbon. We stuck a little chocolate lollipop in the top and called it good. I thought they were cute and Sammo was happy so all was well.
As far as Nikki....we just did a few of the chocolate candy sliders for her friends. They are SO cute and SO easy. We did up a little bag of smarties (those BIG Valentine's ones) with a cute tag from the 'For a Friend' set--'wishing you LOVE'. It was cute and again, pretty simple. I KNEW I was going to wish I'd taken pics but eh!
Anyways, my DH TOTALLY surprised me with these beautiful flowers for Valentine's Day:
Not the best picture, I realize, but......it's the best I've got.
He is SO NOT a flower guy. I can kind of understand...they are 'just flowers and only die anyways' but it makes a girl feel special to get flowers every now and again doesn't it?! He's actually more of get a REAL GOOD gift but it's usually after the fact. I dunno. He just doesn't think of it. I guess I"m sorta like that too. I'd MUCH rather get him something I KNOW he's gonna LOVE, want and use than to just get something for the day and I'm not real good at 'being on time' either. Anyways, he REALLY surprised me this year. I didn't have a clue. The little pink roses are BEAUTIFUL-so dainty and sweet-like thin paper. Ohhh-I just love them!! My house must be warm because they're really beginning to open up. Maybe it's just that type of rose? I dunno-regardless they're STILL beautiful.
I kinda dropped the ball this year myself....I made up little pails for the kids but didn't decorate them much and just filled them with goodies.

I used Berry Bliss paper. BEAUTIFUL. I just LOVE this paper!!
I used two different stamp rollers-they're kinda fun. I've not used them much before but I think I can see where they could be addicting. :) I used a ruler as a guide this time but I may just have to invest in the guide SU! has!
Ahhhh--for this one I used the Always set (SU!) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set! Beautiful!! And PERFECT for Valentine's Day!! I'm going to add a sentiment to the bottom of this card...just haven't figured out which one yet. I added stickles to the swirley's. It looks SO much prettier IRL.
Alright, off to get my chill'in's ready for school!!

And here's a picture of the candy bar pulled out. This was SO SUPER EASY! I couldn't BELIEVE how quickly it came together. So, THANKS BEATE for the AWESOME tutorial-which BTW you can find here.
I think the ladies are going to LOVE this idea-and JUST IN TIME for Valentine's Day too!!
I know Nikki has already asked me to make some of these up so she can give them to her friends for Valentine's Day.
I also TOTALLY LIFTED this from Beate:HOW CUTE IS THIS!?!
I've made these little sour cream containers before--and at Valentine's Day-- but I'd NEVER thought of making them out of acetate!! What a FABULOUS idea right??? Well, I just HAD to try it out and if it ain't broke why fix it right? Beate's idea is ADORABLE and I'm REALLY not in much of a 'thinking mode' today so I decided to just follow her lead with this one. :) That acetate is a little slippery to stamp on that's for sure, you just have to be careful or you could have a REAL mess. I had to cut out that black circle with scallop scissors. I'm SO glad I ordered the scallop punch today. The one I already own is too big. I was thinking about just bringing one for each of the ladies...or I GUESS I could put one in their bag when their order comes. It's just SO STINK'IN cute.
That's all for me today. I work in a few hours so I'm going to lay down for a nap.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
