Snow, Rain and Cold, Oh My

Well its February...and we got Snow..can ya believe that! Last weekend up to 7 inches here...and our store closed on a Saturday due to the bad weather, impassible icy roads. We got through that and now we are heading for bad weather, actually its here.wind just picked up, rain..we did have snow for about 30 seconds..which was supposed to be needless to say, this weekend brings surprises as we are waiting to see what will happen.

I have been working on the layout at the top, Sweet Pea. This layout of course was inspired by this adorable little granddaughter born on January 22, 2010. I will refer her as Sweet you can see on the layout. In this layout, I layered Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, Sugar Rush and Pink Paisley line. I hadded Prima flowers to the corners, and of course I had to add Tim Holtz tickets..adore..they are just to cute not to add. You will see the edges of the flowers look darker, I had to try out my new Smooch..and all I did was edge it. I have these string of pearly beads on a strand..looped it and adhered it. Rhinestone pink pearls from Kaiser was a cute little add. Just little touches. The middle layer, I used fiskars hear border punch all the way around..I traced another paper to get the top note looking add the picture and embellishments on..I cut that and fell in love. Enjoy sharing this layout with everyone, I have to make another one, as my cuddlebug informed me she didn't think I loved her much because I did the frame for Sweet Pea...and I showed her, Nanna has another right over there to make just for you. She of course hugged me and said "you do love me"..four year olds..what would we do without them.

Working a few projects...stay tuned for those to be added soon..and one will be a class comin to All About Scrapbooks. I am excited! February is among us and soon before you know it..March will be here..and that schedule is getting tight. If you need more information on the layout above, let me know. The Frame is from Michaels...(cough...eck..cough) but we don't sell frames, this one is a Scrapbook 12x12 Frame. I can't wait for the Tim Holtz Sizzix dies to come...they were released at CHA as alot of other great treasures....Sure to have lots of flavor and drooling going on over at the store when that hits the shelf.
