Happy 2010

~Happy New Year to you all, I've had quite a busy (and sick) start to the New Year. I still have bronchitis but I am recovering, although I had to go see an Emergency Doctor on New Year's Eve because I was in so much pain - I was given antibiotics and I feel so much better today!!! The New Year has brought lots of good things for me too, so I'll explain all of those as I go through this post. But first.....

~THANK YOU to all of my readers, if you notice my visitor counter, you'll see I have gone over 5000 visitors - something I am extremely happy about. 5000 visitors in 6 months is great.

~This week I have been having a slow look through my christmas presents, these are 2 of my faves.........
~This book is fantastic, you go through and tick off the ones you have done, and then make plans to do the rest!
~I also now own 2 pairs of these fab boots......
~I have them in Beige and BRIGHT blue, I love them so much - I wish the snow would go away so I could wear them!!!
~I don't want an awful lot in the January sales, just these ear muffs from Accessorize........
~And although I have 2 HUGE hairbands, I really love this one from Accessorize too........
~I am loving huge hairbands at the moment, I have a flower one and one with a huge bow, I also have several smaller bow hairbands.
~I never thought I would like Cath Kidston, until I saw this pin cushion.........
~I really really WANT this, it's so cute!!! We might have to go to the Cath Kidston shop in Edinburgh at some point - I know Jay wants a few bits too.

~A few of the girls on The Everyday Scrapper, are playing along with One Little Word on Ali Edwards blog, so I decided I would play too. After a good while deciding on my word for 2010, I chose SUCCEED........
~I start college in February, and then in September I get to start my 2 year course in either Hairdressing or Beauty Therapy - and I so want to SUCCEED in that, it's important to me. I also did a layout using my One Little Word.........
~I used Basic Grey Lemonade for this layout, and it's my first one using a card background!!! I spritzed the whole thing with Pink Bubblegum glimmer mist.

~Lastly, but certainly not least.... Scrap Tiffany have a brand new Design Team (of which I am a member), are planning a Blog Hop and have a brand new forum. The forum is now open to the public, so come join us. Our Blog Hop will be in February, so I hope you will join in - all the DT will have some fabby projects on their blogs, and there will be giveaways too............
~This was my first week as a DT on Scrap Tiffany, and the first challenge was to do a project on I Could Not Live Without... so I did Winter Walks - at this time of the year, I love walking and getting some nice photos for the start of a year. This photo was taken in January last year.........
~I hope you will play along with the challenge for this week on Scrap Tiffany, go check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with for Week 1 2010.
~That's everything from me today, I'm back at college tomorrow - just 3 weeks of Step In left, then in 4 weeks time I start my course.... I'm excited (and a wee bit nervous)
~I hope everyone has had a great start to 2010.
~love, Vicki xxx
