Drill #21 is now LIVE at SWAT – Scrap Warriors Advanced Training and all you have to do is create a project using a Christmas Carol for your title or sentiment. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

White Christmas

All Bundled Up – Sketchy Thursdays

This week’s sketch 11.17 at Sketchy Thursdays was perfect for this layout of Matthew all bundled up to play in the snow back in Feb 2010. A little before Christmas last year, I took the kids with me to ACMoore and they had some arts and crafts set up for the children to do and were giving out snowflake shaped, glittery felt ornaments. When we got home, Matthew asked me to scrap a page for his book with it. 😀 Here it is a year later and I’m finally getting around to doing just that! lol

This week’s feature on the Firefly Expressions blog is Pebbles, Inc. and we were given a half set of foam stamps to work with. Mine included this great snowflake piece that used with white acrylic paint for the bg of my lo.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

Matthew’s felt snowflake is in upper right corner of the page. Isn’t it cute? 😀
