Okay ladies, I am serious this time. I will make blinkies for all of you if you want them. Check mine out in My Place. Just let me know the name you want to be called in a PM. I might miss it if it is posted here on the thread, esp since over the next few days I will be really busy. I'm gonna take the little face off of mine but it will still say my name--so yours will say blinging babes and then your name.

Here's my first page of the year:
Bump

It was a DT assignment for one of the LSS here. There aren't any pics because I am using pics form the store and didn't want to bother asking for permission to post them online.

Let me know what you think--I feel like I went a little old school with it on the one hand but then I did try something new with the swirl ont he side on the other...
