Fun New Toys

I hope all of you had a great Christmas! I know we sure did. Now that all the snow is gone and I've been finished making Christmas gifts, I've had a chance to play with all of my new toys from the new Spring CTMH Idea Book! I LOVE them. On the day after Christmas, I worked on layouts all day long and stayed up until midnight paper crafting.

For this layout, I was inspired by the layout on page 108 in the new Idea Book for the tree. I used papers from the new Unforgettable My Reflections kit, along with Bird Basics and Aspiration stamp sets, White Daisy Just Blooms flowers, Winter Buttons, Clear Buttons, Sorbet ribbon, Spring Blossom brads, Antiqued Copper brads, Chocolate Waxy Flax and Juniper, Sorbet and Cocoa ink. My scrap club members will be completing this page in February!

Sledding Fun

Here's a video of the kids sledding on Friday. Super fun!

We have tons more snow today, about a foot now. We're going out to play in it after the kiddos wake up from their naps and I'll post more video and pictures tonight!

Merry Christmas!

Snow Days

We got our largest snowfall yet overnight and Alex and Ava were super-excited to get outside this morning to play in it. We had the "flexible flyer" sled that Poppa and Lulu gave us and they both loved riding on it while Daddy pulled them down and back the driveway. Ava especially loved riding on her tummy! We feel so fortunate to have had Daddy home from school all week!

Super Fun Quiz

I just found this quiz on my friend Tina's blog and I love it! I took it and based on my answers, it was right on about me! It tells you what scrapbooking item you're most like.

I'm the adhesive. I help people and keep things together, but sometimes overlook myself in the process. Hmmm - I'm off to go relax and watch a movie right now!
