This week was very, very long. I could not wait until today. I am on vacation and I return to work on 1/2/13.  Woo hoo! I am going to get some rest and spend some time with the family. Sadly my sis and niece wont make it up here :(. I really wanted to see them. Since I had half a day today I decided to go to Walmart. Last year I started the tradition of getting them cute pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve. I was able to get some Dora pajamas for Gabby since she loves Dora and some butterfly pajamas for Farrah.

So I've worked on the following layouts over the last couple days. Enjoy!

They Eat Snow

These kids couldnt wait to get outside and play in the snow. They were so excited and decided to eat it too. Gross.

The background ppr is American Crafts Classics called Ender. I used Studio Calico White over 12/12 hexagon template. I cut out some of the hexagons from Happy Day and layered Poodleskirt Pink paint by Americana over 6/6 Mini Swiss Dot template. Both templates by The Crafter's Workshop. I sprayed very TA Strawberry Cheesecake very lightly. I threaded some sequins together for added sparkle. The gray stickers are Snap and the glitter stickers are Thickers in Rainboots. For the pictures, I edited with Picasa and used the " cinematography" filter. Thanks for looking


So yesterday we had our first measurable snow in over 280 days! Wow, I was getting used to the mild, although rainy weather. But here in WI anything is possible. The kids ate and I let them play outside in the snow. They had fun making and throwing snowballs @ eachother. I didn't get many good pictures but I will edit as best as I can. For this picture I used Cross Process and 1960's filter over it. I love how it turned out. I've never done that before. Keep in mind that I do use Picasa, so you can do the same if you have the software, google "Picasa" it is free!

Poor Gab!

 I took this on Tuesday when we had part 1 of our snow storm. The kids had so much fun making and throwing snowballs, making snow angels and gliding in the snow but Gabby soon became annoyed and started crying when Farrah threw some @ her...

I used the Cosmic Bubbles template with the following mists : TA Sea Glass, TA Be Mine and Shimmerz Cotton Candy. I used WRMK Aqua Floss, The large colorful circle paper is Amy Tan Ready Set Go, The blue and white dot is MME Lavander Cutie Pie. The pink dotted paper is Bazzill Dotted Swiss and the black and white border is Making Memories, The circle is DCWV Mango Frost. The letter stickers are Thickers Sparkling. 


  1. Beautiful work, Miss Mia! And that paper on the first one? Wow! I love them all- but I'm a little obsessed with that first one's color- great!!!

    1. Hi Kory how have you been? I used American Craft's Classics (Ender) Thanks for all the love.
