Brrrr--- It's the first day of Winter and last night we had snow! And wind! Mostly wind.. but some snow and at this point, less than an inch but who knows when I get up in the morning.. my granddaughter was so excited. We didn't get much snow last year! Anyway-I hope you started at Ashley's blog http://thebloghopprincess.blogspot.com/. She's got prizes for this hop, so don't miss out and be sure to check for any special instructions over there. Now here at my blog, since it's the holidays and I'm in a giving spirit.. I have blog candy as well! CTMH stamps, other misc. crafting supplies... it'll be a grab bag of fun, certainly not a "dirty Santa" kind of thing.. so how to win??? Please leave a comment, good, bad, or just holiday greetings if you want.. and if you want to follow me, that's super!! I'd love to get to 400 and if and when I do, there'll be a big party and give away!! You should have come here via Vanessa http://wwwpaperkraftsunlimiteddesings.blogspot.com/ blog. Don't miss any blogs on the way, there's awesome projects to give you plenty of ideas I'm sure! I'll have to hop when I get home from work.. that pesky work gets in the way of my fun! Here's my project, I made a 2 page layout all ready for our Snow Fun this winter!
 
 
 

I used some cute snowman paper from our Hobby Lobby. Added some blue mats and layers from a paper stack. The icicle toppers are from a Creative Kuts file, and the snowman at the bottom are from a package of die cuts from Wal-mart. The Jack Frost nipping at your nose was printed in a white gel pen from a Silhouette file with my Cameo. I love how you can print fine lettering.. and the white gel pen really gives it a frosty appearance. In both corners are flourishes that looked like Jack Frost was blowing snow to me. They don't show up well in the photos, but there are snowflakes on them and I added bling to those. The white box is earmarked for some journaling so bring on the snow and I'll have photos in no time for this layout!
 

Thanks for stopping by today! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
