Snowman

I created this two-page layout on Saturday, and it turned out just the way I wanted it to. I love when that happens!!


I FINALLY used the wonderful "snow" cardstock stickers that I received as blog candy from my wonderful blogging friend, the very talented Samm. The cardstock stickers are so fabulous, that I wanted to really showcase them on a GREAT layout! These photos are my girls having a fantastic time in the snow in our backyard, and they're building snowmen. The papers are Bazzill, the border at the bottom was created with my Fiskars threading water punch, and I stamped the journaling block with an Autumn Leaves stamp. You can click on the photos to see them larger!


Here's just page one. My girls had so much fun, and yes, Princess is always posing for photos too! She loves the snow!


Look at that snowman cardstock sticker. Isn't it fantastic? It's joined together with jump rings, and there is a jewel hanging off the bottom. The snowman had a Christmas sentiment on its lower half, so I covered it up with another wonderful cardstock sticker from the pack. I'm just THRILLED with this layout. It's crisp, clean, simple, and I love it!


This is the pack of cardstock stickers that Samm sent me as blog candy. I'm sure you can see why I wanted to use them on a special layout. They're really fantastic!! Thanks again Samm!

I got some spring cleaning done yesterday, and I need to continue today. It's going to be another nice day! Yeah! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!!

Love your layouts but I don't want to look at them for too long. We've had our warmest day of the year so far today with a whopping 16°C! I managed to do some gardening and everything. Your layouts are lovely but I don't want to think about the snow and cold again just yet - we have sunshine!!! :-)

Awesome layouts....and I love the blog stuff for Winter pages. I don't know who invented Blog Candy but they deserve 200 Golden Stars, donchathink. BTW, I will mail your crochet flowers tomorrow. Somehow I just never got dressed and left the house today. Retirement is like that, ya know?
