Over Christmas break we got away for a couple of nights to play in the snow and enjoy some time away together as a family. We had a great time playing games (King of Tokyo is a new favorite), trying out new restaurants, meeting up with friends, sledding and we even tried out snowshoeing.

We had a fun time trekking around on the snowshoes. We didn't go for a very long time, but I could see that it would get very tiring if we'd set out to walk a few miles.

For a Phoenix girl, this was a perfect adventure with a fun mix of cold and snow. Can't wait to do it again sometime!

I had some fun putting these tags together with lots of leftover bits and pieces of Valentine themed goodies I've had piling up around here. Now they'll get tied to treat bags and be ready to give out!

You + Me: Colored Minty

I've had so much fun playing with paper and photos this past week. It feels so good to have time to make creating a priority right now.

For this layout, it was all about playing with a favorite photo and adding lots of journaling. Those lines on the background paper just called to me to be filled with words!

The You + Me acrylic pieces started out white, but I really wanted to color them to match the frame of the page. I experimented by covering the acrylic with mist (Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mint) and let the color sit on it overnight. The next day the mist was totally dry and had formed a film on the letters. I peeled the film back and the letters were left covered with the beautiful minty color!

For a few finished details on the page, I added mint foil to the heart card next to the photo. Every time I use the Silhouette, I love it! I need to remember to use it more often. I also added a few lines of hot pink stitching near the top to create a base for the banner along the top. I wonder if I will ever tire of banners? Hope not!

Love You 3

The Only You Scrapbook Circle Kit for February has a great mix of Valentine bits and pieces and it was perfect for a love themed page about my kids. I feel like heart and sparkles work year round for so many different pages!

Over Christmas break we took a three hour drive from our beautiful Phoenix weather and headed north to play in some snow for three days. On the day we arrived, snow fell all day and it was so peaceful to watch. We cozied up by the fire, read books, played games and had some snow play time too.

Hooray for snow and heart-filled pages!
