I just love snow days, especially now that Patryk is a bit older. Isn't 3 such a magical age? He has been asking since 6am if he can go play in the snow yet. I've almost had enough coffee to go out there, but thought while I meet my coffee quota for the morning, I'd share a couple of layouts I did yesterday.

I made this first one for the latest Sketches in Thyme Thursday Takes sketch. I don't really know how I feel about this one, it kind of went in a different direction, and I'm not sure if I like the flowers or not...but it is what it is. (And the pictures make it all ok...isn't he just the cutest?) I strayed a bit from the photos were large (I've had these in a "to scrap" pile for a while now) so I didn't include all of the additional strips they showed in the sketch.

American Traditional Designs (now Momenta) Welcome Baby papers and Elevations sticker (the bird in the nest, oh so cute.) MSE rub on sentiment. Prima vine, paper roses random from my stash. Cricut Classic Font cartridge for the title (italic and italic shadow) and the oval around the photo. Epoxy stickers (Patryk's initials) random, unknown maker.

Next up, I have an entry for the Bling It On 2011 contest over at sketches4all, this is the first challenge posted (and I am a little behind and need to see what the next one is!) and it is to use pink and green colors along with rhinestones on the layout. I am also using this for the Colorful Creations large photo challenge (again) as this one is a cut up 8X10. I have decided to take the girls' old school photos and make albums of them, as I just can't bring myself to get rid of them, and don't want them gathering dust in a drawer somewhere.

My Mind's Eye papers. Random rhinestones on bottom, White Blossom floral rhinestone stickers stuck to a MAMBI Soft Spoken Childhood embellie at the top right (I am vowing to use up my ridiculous stash of embellies I have, I have too many! This is something I would now make, but when I bought it, I probably thought it was something I couldn't. I know better now!) Thickers in chestnut. Unknown maker of epoxy alpha stickers for Andraia's initials.

Hope you like them, now off to take these kiddos outside so I can shovel, and then it's up to do some more creating :) Have a great day!
