sunday . . .


We are snowed in!!! Well, not quite anymore - we have done lots of digging out in the past couple days :) It began Friday night - here is Justin & I getting ready to plow the driveway & neighborhood . . .

Saturday morning this is what we woke up to . . .

And it kept snowing, all day & early evening Saturday!!! Ryan & I did some baking to pass the time :)

Then we played a bit in the snow :)

In all we ended up with a little over 30 inches - insane for our area!!! And another 6 - 12 inches expected by Wednesday - ahhhhhhhhh!!

I haven't spent any time scrapping this weekend - too much time shoveling and playing and baking & drying wet clothes :) I am definitely scrapping tomorrow night though!!! I am in creative withdrawal!!!

I do have a little scrappy goodness to share though - Pam from My Creative Scrapbook sent me this BEAUTIFUL kit for February - totally jam-packed with awesome papers & TONS of embellies!!!

Here is my sketch for February . . .

And here is my take using the February MCS main kit . . .

I did a little misting on the chipboard included in the kit for the title work . . .

And I added in a bit of stitching - love these patterned papers by Making Memories!!

Have a fabulous Sunday!!

  1. What a lovely layout! (The snow is lovely too, though I'm sure the shoveling wasn't :)

  2. Darn blogger... lost my comment!! Try it again..

    I wanted to say, I LOVE that LO of Ryan and Justin. Just such a sweet moment to preserve!! But then, I really truly do love all you make!

    As for the snow, I can totally empathize with you. Tho it has been awhile for us up here. I live just over the border from the Twin Cities in WI. We haven't had snow like that since Halloween, 1991. That year, we got about 3 ft. dumped on us. Then 3 weeks later, another 2 ft. Hasn't happened since!!

  3. Julie you layout is awesome. Such a sweet picture of your guys.
    We had 18" of snow (southeastern PA)
    and it's C O L D !!!
    Good scrappin' weather!

  4. Love the sketch - you have definitely been in a circle mood as 3 out of the last 4 Iʼve seen have had circles in the background!!
