Snow Day

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I spent the entire weekend cropping at a fundraiser crop! My wonderful husband watched all three of our kids all weekend! He's so fabulous! I had a pretty productive weekend. I made 2 layouts and 3 cards...in the first two days, then I got sick today and just sat around like an uninspired lump...ya win some ya lose some! lol

So I thought I'd share one of the layouts I made yesterday. It was inspired by this fabulous sketch at Frosted Designs


These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when we finally got a good dump of snow combined with some nice weather after, so we went out and went sledding. It was Kieran's first time sledding and he had soooo much fun! He kept wanting to go up the hill and he didn't want to leave! It was a great day...the only thing that would've made it better was if my husband was there, but someone's gotta work! lol


All the supplies I used were from my Counterfeit Kit except this fun pink trim that was in my goodie bag at the crop. It's from Stampin Up!


I made this banner using a Hero Arts stamp and some baker's twine...it was kinda fussy, but it was worth it :)


The white strip of "patterned paper" was made using another Hero Arts heart stamp and black memento ink. I just randomly stamped it all over the page. I really liked the way it turned out :)

I'm also going to enter this into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show-anything goes

Have a great night!

I love this page, you did a great job on the banner - I agree, it was well worth it, and the handmade paper looks very cool! Awesome pompom trim!!! I've been very bad about letting Brenna play in the snow this winter, but then again, our yard is full of dog poo, and her snowsuit is waaaaaay too short - am I overprotective? Glad you had a good time at the crop! Hugs, Rox.
