Guess who loves snow?

We had lots of snow this week and lots of changes of plans because of it. So while we are sad to miss seeing our dear friends, the kids at least enjoyed playing in (and eating) the snow.

Exciting news!

I have been asked to be on the design team at The Mosy Scrapper for the next four months! Christa runs a truly lovely board - incredibly warm and friendly, and it is a real joy to work with her and the TMS DT!

Coordinates Collections December Blog Hop

Coordinates Collection challenged its readers to create a LO with some sparkle in it this month, and no one likes bling as much as my lovely daughter. So since I have been procrastinating about scrapping the photos from her birthday party, I figured this was a good time to pull them out and get them on a sparkly layout. There is a LOT of sparkle on this page - the Pink Paislee glitter alphas, the Prima bling swirl, the black rhinestone frame around the number 6, and the Stickles sprinkles on the cupcake!
Have a great day!

Late Chanukah post...

Better late than never - I just got a chance to sit down and edit some of my photos from the beginning of the month! Jeff took this picture of me and the kids lighting the menorah:

It's hard to believe Chanukah has already come and gone!

Butterflies, butterflies

Ok, butterflies aren't the usual December motif, but when Just Imagine/Kreaxions sent me this awesome new butterfly die , I had to play with it! This is a flat metal die, compatible with most die-cut systems - I used it with my Spellbinder Wizard and it worked beautifully. I have seen several versions of these butterfly collages and always wanted to make one, so I pulled out several sheets of Basic Gray and Pink Paislee and went to town cutting butterflies. I layered them on this Basic Gray paper until I was happy with the arrangement and then embellished with whatever bling and buttons I had on my desk.

Have a great day,
