There are so many birthdays coming up in Troy's family in March so I thought I would get a head start... yeah, believe that!!! ( being the procrastinator that I am, hehe)
I made the base and scalloped layers using  "Birthday Bash" Cricut cartridge...Card/Tag on pg. 43 .. I decreased the size each time , I started at 5 1/2 "

You hold the key to my heart "Scrapbooking Layout"

Click here for my weekly freebie!!
Happy Wednesday!!!! I thought I would change things up a bit and do a scrapbooking layout. What's unique about my layout is I converted it into a wall hanging by using cork board as a base and hung it my craftroom. I choose pictures with lots of green showcasing nature to compliment the background paper. These are random pictures on different occasions where Michael and I were enjoying a bright sunny refreshing when everything has been white for so long don't you agree? Click on image to view the sparkly details. I created my flowers with random prima flowers I had in my stash and used cotton balls as a base... I took the cotton ball and spread it out in one direction, tore it at the center and made an "X" and placed underneathe flower.I used Spellbinders Scalloped Squares and Rectangles for the picture's of myself and Michael, I used the negative for the stream scene.
I used Pearlizing Medium on my flowers and random spots t…

Free Digital "Boy Building Snowman"

It is time for another free digital!!! Michael and I got bundled up and decided to build a snowman yesterday but the snow was too hard and no stick whatsoever so we built a cave instead. I would love to say that Michael was facinated to be out playing in the snow but he simply wanted nothing to do with it, hahahaha  (guess who did all the work?) my plan to take pictures to go along with this digital failed miserably for Michael was off the first chance he got and went inside.

Mini Album cont....

click here for this week's freeie! Hi!  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We still have the cold bug and strangely it goes away for a couple of days and suddenly it is back again... huh? I can't wrap my head around this one but on the bright side we are cheery and happy, we take advantage when we are sick to get all those extra cuddles in.
On a total different note I am super excited to share the next two pages in my "Love" album, if you remember this is my Valentine's gift to myself, hehe!
Here is the cover page if you missed it:

And two more pages I have managed to complete,  it is only a small album so I hope to get the other 5 pages done before Valentine's Day...eeek!
These pages were done for Troy, for those of you who don't know Troy is my partner in crime, just kidding... he is the most calm, patient adorable man on the face of this planet and I am proud to call him my best friend.

Hopefully I will be showing you the rest of the album this week!!
