It's a Snow Day!

Edited: I changed my blog header last night using some Echo Park goodies in honour of us getting MORE snow ;)

WAhoo! The great wet kind that you can build a hUgE snowman!!!! So I got my scrap on this weekend. Everyone took a nap here on Saturday so I thought it would be a great time to jump on some challenges over at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking.

Here is a layout I did using the word "love" in the title and/or journaling. Papers, embellies, chipboard numbers are Sassafrass Lass, chipboard hearts are Maya Road using their mist, too, and Cardstock is Core'dinations Core Impressions Cosmo Cricket. Not sure if you can notice but I cut the flower patterned paper in an asymmetrical shape for something different.


I love running outside (not to be confused with the dreaded treadmill, LOL!) And for the "1"...I ran out of chipboard number 1's so I used the negative space from the package and then cut my own ;) and then ran it through the Cuttlebug.



And this paper comes with stitching images so I randomly stitches some of them around the page...


Next up is a card for the Elephant challenge over at the Nook. This little guy makes me smile. I just love this MME Alphabet soup line!
