Hello and welcome to today's post featuring this week's challenge at SOUS - "warm & cozy".

I'm the first to admit that I sometimes take challenges a bit too literally. It can be hard to think outside the box. I have been with SOUS a while and have done this challenge before. Last time I put die cut scarves, mittens and hats on a layout.

This time . . . well . . . I did something else.

It's rare to find someone who doesn't like a warm cup of coffee or at least a cup of hot chocolate. On cold winter nights, I love having one or the other in front on my fire place with a fuzzy blanket draped over me. Yep, I'm "warm and cozy" with my coffee.

For all those girly-girls out there, this one is for you!

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by today.

Love you tons

Hello there! It's my day to post for Scrapping Bug Designs on FB.

So a few days ago I was a-wandering thru Hobby Lobby and came across "a shiny". This 'shiny' was in the form of these cute "fruit boxes" just waiting to be decorated.

I couldn't resist!!!

I chose the "love you tons" svg file from Scrapping Bug Designs to be the main character. After that, just a little of this and a little of that and voila!! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Ham & Cheese

My sister and I have one boy each. They could not be more different. My son is the "ham" and her son is the "cheese" of this dynamic duo.

In most of our pictures with the two of them together, it is quite obvious why.

I started out following this sketch from Pinterest. After that it took a life of its own, mainly because it took me a couple weeks to finish it.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

"Cheese"is one my my free fonts on SCAL3. "Results not typical"
was the result of my sister!!

Hello and welcome to this week's die cut challenge with SOUS - "snow". That means using a die cut on your project that represents (for you) "snow".

Remember last year's winter (2013-2014)? GAH!!

This photo was taken before any of us really knew what was going to happen. Snow, ice and freezing temperatures were still fun.

Our exchange student did not mind pulling my son around on a sleigh. His hands did get pretty numb from that though. I think he ended up putting on my gloves before the fun was over.

I followed this sketch from "myscrapsandmore".

The blue tree and snowflakes are my die cuts for this project.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Who says you have to make a winter card with a "winter phrase"?

Not me obviously.

I used all BoBunny scraps for the patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by today!

What can I say? I was challenged by my sister to do a challenge. She was bored . . . I was bored. . .  so we both made layouts for this  sketch abilities challenge. 

I have very mixed feelings about using mists and sprays on layouts and then using very little paper. Most of my spending money is invested in paper and embellishments. So it feels wrong to make layouts with mostly all mists instead. I do like how they turn out though . . . hmmm.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Merry & Bright

My sister challenged me . What can I say. . . I lost!! *shrugs* She got her layout done first AND got it posted to the sketch challenge on time too!

Well, here's mine a few hours late.

Thanks for stopping by today.

My son hanging on for dear life while we strolled thru a
Christmas decorated conservatory. 

I have a gazillion of these pop-up poinsettias.

I do love that my Silhouette can cut intricate titles. Getting it glued without
tearing it up is another challenge though.

Love twine and flags!
