Hi! I'm so happy to have you drop by for a visit!
We're expecting snow again this coming Monday! We've stocked the pantry and I plan on making a pot of split pea soup today. Hubby even bought a snow shovel! It's about time since we've been living here in North Carolina for six years and have been using a garden shovel! However, now that we're prepared, we'll get just a few flakes!
When we moved here, we bought a sled anticipating our first snowfall and how fun it would be to take a spin down our long sloping driveway! Shoot if it didn't snow for two years! That will teach us! Funny how things work out!
Speaking of snow, I have a snowy scrapbook page to share with you. It's my first page for the new year!
The patterned papers I used are from a new digital kit at Two Peas in a Bucket called 'Month by Month - January Papers'from Shelley Castillo. I had to have this kit when I saw this snowman paper! And with all the snow we've been getting, I'm sure it'll come in handy for more snowy pages! Oh and winter greeting cards too!
I used the gray patterned paper for the snowflakes that were cut with the Silhouette die cutter and then I hand stitched them to my page.
The peach paper with snowflake print was used to accent the page. I made borders and tucked some under my title.
Here's Christopher all bundled up, snowball in hand...ready or not, here he comes! :)
For the journaling, I made this vellum tag accented with some of the gray paper and finishing off with a simple jute tie. As you can see I utilized a few border punches and decorative scissors.
So, what are your plans for this weekend? I really need to finish my December Daily album! I wish I were feeling more motivated to do it! Seems after the holidays are over, I just don't have the same enthusiasm to work on it!
I've been doing a little bit of treasure hunting at my local thrift and antique stores lately and scored some incredible deals that I hope to share with you in the next couple days. I just took photos today so all I have to do now is get the photos cropped...well, you know the drill. So, go make some great memories this weekend and I'll 'see' you soon! :) Kathy
