Hello from snowy Ohio. Not as much snow as I would have liked but it's still snow on the ground and on the trees. We are suppose to get another two inches tonight but I will wait to see. I had my grand daughter yesterday and see was looking at the snow like she has never seen it before. She is only one and a half so maybe she hasn't seen much of the white stuff. I couldn't get her away from the door. Finally, I had to just pick her up to stop letting the cold in. He wasn't the happiest but I opened a blind and let her sit in a chair so she could see it and the dog having fun with the snow also. I have a Siberian Husky that loves this stuff so it is entertaining for the kids to watch her. My other dog wants nothing to do with snow, cold or her paws getting wet. She wears her sweaters every winter and still wants to sleep under a blanket. Never seen a dog like this one.
This week were allowed to make a card or anything else. I chose to make a layout this week with a couple of Christmas pictures from the past. Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner is our sponsor for this weeks challenge which is your project must have a bow on it. So, I made the pictures into presents with a bow on the top of them. I love when a project just works out for itself. This was a lot of fun to do and I realized that I need to get back into doing my layouts for my family album. This layout is in there already. Dragonsmoore was great with the image that they let me use. It's called Christmas Pressy Bear. He is a cute little bear that is delivering mail and also holding a small Christmas tree. Since the bear is delivering mail I made the title of my layout "Special Delivery." I really thought it all came together when I was finished. I want to Thank Dragonsmoore for the great image they let me use. Now let me tell you what they will be giving to the lucky winner this week.
5 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice
Now I would like to show you the scrapbooking layout that I have made.
The image is in the corner and I added extra mail on the ground and some presents that the bear should be delivering. The frames with the red bows have a pattern on the paper that you may not see but I wanted you to know. Here are the great products that I used to make this "Special Delivery."
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- Close To My Heart
Title -- Cricut Cartridge (Storybook)
Glitter -- Ranger (Star Dust)
Pictures In Order On The Layout -- Jelissa, Hayden, and Jordan
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils
I hoped that you liked the layout. Of course, I love it because it has pictures of my family. I put the journal on the back so it didn't take up to much of the layout. I hope that you will try this challenge out. Make your project and just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to enter it. The projects from last weeks challenge was amazing. So many ideas out there. You can take one thing and not one card will be the same. I think that is great. Well I hope to see you next Sunday for another one of Robyn's Challenges. Enjoy the rest of your day and have a Great Week.
