Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let IT Snow Layout

Here is a fun layout I did a few days ago. I just loved the way it turned out!!

For the snow I used Creative Memories cutting system and cut three wavy strips out for each page, then chalked the edges to make it look more like real snow. Added some glitter to give it some sparkle then layered and popped it to give the snow dimension. This is a really easy technique but gives the page that extra POP to your layout!

Halloween With Horses

So for my birthday we took the kids to Parker, CO for the Halloween with Horses. We got them all dressed up in their costumes and took off. Once we got there we had to go ride the horses before we could do anything else. I think we stood in line for a good 30 to 40 minutes before the kids were able to ride. By looking at these pictures you can tell they had the best time. I thought they were so darn cute in their costumes and riding helmets. We also Trick or Treated in the stables, painted pumpkins, went through a kid friendly Haunted House and did a little shopping. By the end of the day the kids along with Wes and I were tired and ready to head home. Can't wait to go again next year!

First Snow

Today it snowed in Colorado! Unfortunately I do not have any pictures to show because I was sick in bed all day today. Now that I am feeling a little better the snow has already melted. It was the weirdest snow. It started off as heavy rain snow mixed early in the morning. It even thunder as it was snowing. As the temperature drooped it all turned to a very pretty snow. By 5pm it was all melted away. The ground was just to warm for it to stick around. The rest of the week does not show snow in the forecast but I'm sure we will have snow for Halloween as we do almost every year.

Halloween "BOO" Door Hanger

Here is a cute little door hanger that I put together yesterday. It turned out so darn cute! I bought the raw wood "BOO" sign at Michael's for a $1 and decorated it with paint and paper. Then sealed it with some Modge Podge and embellished it with stickers, buttons and alphabet beads. I have another to make that I plan on only using CTMH products.

National Card Making Day

In honor of National Card Making Day I made this cute Halloween card using CTMH's Happy Haunting stamp set along with SU! Halloween paper and cardstock.
Sorry for the lighting. I normally take pictures outside because the lighting in my house is so bad but today is a very windy day.

Coaster Box

I finally finished this Photo box for a Home Gathering this Sunday. I used 5 plain coasters and pasted the papers from the Caprice Level 2 Kit on one side of the coaster then painted the other sidee by mixing the white paint with a re-inker. I assembled the box by punching holes in all 4 corners of all the coasters. Then attached them together with ribbon. I love to distress so there is a lot of that going on in this project. I then took 3 - 2x3 photos and matted those then attached them to the box with some fun embellishments. The front of the box has 3 stamped flowers cut out with some glitter. I plan on adding the year down in the lower corner. The photos are from the first day of school. My youngest, who is not in school yet, was not pictured that day.
