I am on a scrapbook layout binge. Once I start, it is hard to stop. Good thing I don't do drugs or gamble because I go overboard. I think I do a lot of layouts of my children when I start to miss them so much it hurts. It is my way of visiting them and remembering the good times we had. It is nearing the anniversary of their deaths so I guess there will be lots of layouts coming your way! I love doing them but then I feel bad that I haven't really done any for the twins. Once February passes maybe I will be able to squeeze some in. I just gotta get them printed out!!!
Once I saw the sketch over at Simon Says Stamps and the theme of snow over at Creative Belli Challenge for some reason I thought instantly of these pictures. These were some of the last pictures taken on my children. They were playing in only maybe 2 inches of snow but they thought it was the best thing in the world. I am gonna do another page with the other photos but for now I just wanted to keep this as a main picture.
The challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is to use winter warmies..something related to clothing you would wear in the snow. I cut out my mittens from Simply Charmed I believe. I didn't like the way the layer for the bottom cut out so I hand cut it then flocked it with white flocking. I used my PKS-460 Happy Lash Assortment for the faces. I used the biggest one that comes in the set which I believe is the 1 3/8" size. I covered it in liquid glass from CTMH and added a metal token to the mittens also from CTMH.
And of course the picture of my daughter for the Cutie Patootie challenge over at
Paperplay. The papers are from October Afternoon. I added oodles of Stickles to the snowflakes on the paper to make them stand out more. One of my resolutions is to use up old stuff so I grabbed these chipboard letters that I bought years ago and added some stickles to that. Boy it felt good to use up some of my ol' stash I tell ya!I had some rhinestones leftover from the Shopping page so I stuck whatever I had on this page to complete it. Hope you like it!! Stay tuned for the page that will go with this one!
