Finally a real SNOW DAY!

Can winter be over so that I can take some pretty spring pictures?????  Well we stayed home today, reportedly 9 inches of snow, some got less, but it was enough to close a few school districts here in WI. I got the call @ 5:50 am this morning. I was happy because I really didn't want to go to work so I called a personal day, especially when I have to drive 11 miles to the inner city, I live almost in a rural area so our roads are not snow as quick as the city roads. 

Here are a few layouts that I created over the last few days:

She's Just A Girl

All scraps except for the base ppr with is American Crafts Blueberry. I used scraps of Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Maggie Holmes Crate Paper, Crate Paper Peppermint & Random. I also used BG Soleil and MME Honey. The title is Thickers, the small stickers are MME. 

 I Love Heart How U Kids Play 2gether

This was so much fun to create, I used Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, CP and BG. I used Beaded Dots template and white paint. The white stickers are Glitz, the pink are Thickers, the 2 is BG Undressed. 

Oh The Joys of Childhood

Used Maggie Holmes Crate Paper, Sassafras Lass, Amy Tan Yes Please, Crate Paper Peppermint, Thickers Hardcover & Lax

I'm back with some new layouts and goodies...

I know you missed me right? I took an unexpected break from blogging, I have been joining more challenges over @ and creating like crazy. Well I like to get down to the point, here's a few layouts I want to share...

Unbreakable Bond
I created this for Feb 4 Categories Challenge @ We were to use black & white and the color of our choice. I chose blue since I had altered my pictures and printed a few weeks ago, I didn't want this to clash. The blue paper is DCWV Linen Closet. The black border is Doodlebug Frills, the black stickers are Glitz Designs, the pattern paper is MME Honey. I used EK Pennant punch @ the top. I journeled about how much they love each other and sometimes can't stand to be away from eachother.

Snow Butts
I love this picture and it's quite funny. The kids were making snow angels and got snow on their butts, I didn't plan on titling it as such but once I really looked @ the picture I decided to play on it. The blue ppr is American Craft's Blueberry, the arrow, dot and chevron ppr & Thickers is Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and the border is Heidi Swapp. 

Go 2gether

I took these pictures last Feb of the girls on the trail. I can picture Gabby telling Farrah to come on. I love the grainy black and white that my camera gives. The striped paper is MME and the die cuts are Maggie Holmes. I used a mixture of MLS, October Afternoon and Thickers to create my title. 

And for my goodies...
