Pandas Heavenly Pity

Or rearranged, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! It's funny how you can take the same letters and rearrange them to go from silly to loving. Words have amazing power; they can inspire, entertain, hurt, and even heal. On this, the most sacred of all Hallmark-holidays, we will focus on words. We will have several challenges today from serious to not-so-much.

Challenge 1:
How do you describe yourself? What are your favorite things about yourself? For this first challenge, I want you to send yourself a little love. Create a layout (or other piece of art if that is your thing) with FIVE words or statements that describe you. All participants will be entered in a drawing for prizes, so don't get caught up in trying to make this WOW. We want you to focus on the words. The only caveat here is that any negative descriptions will disqualify your entry. Yeah, we all have faults, but you don't send your hubby a Valentine's Day card detailing his irritating habits. So treat yourself with some love today. Post with your link in the comments. The deadline will be tonight at 12 midnight EST. I will draw three random winners from the eligible entries. Prizes have been generously donated by the following sponsors.

Prize Pack 1 - Mustard Moon goodies ($25), FiberScraps goodies ($25), and a $25 Scrapbook.com gift certificate

Prize Pack 2 - Purple Onion stamps ($50) and a $25 Creative Crafts & Stickers gift certificate

Prize Pack 3 - Mosh Posh kit ($31), a Making Memories pack from the Scrapbook Supply Store ($25), and Junkitz goodies ($25)

Good luck! I will be posting the other two challenges around 10 a.m. EST. They will be word game challenges, so get your thinking caps ready.

I received an awesome Valentines from my hubby that described me according to him and I wanted to remember the words so I created a page for my all about me book today and the challenge encouraged me. Thanks so much!

It's not always easy to scrap those 9th month pregnacy pictures...but this is the latest ones of me! :D

Sorry for the pic instead of a scan....we are snowed in away from home and my scraproom/scanner. Always great to bring scrap supplies on vacation. Never know when you'll be snowed in! :D
