Snow in Love!

Hey y'all! I'm back again this week, how about that?! LOL! Anyway, I'm here to share with you the LO I mentioned earlier that I'd been working on for weeks. I've just had it sitting on my craft room desk & I finally made myself pick up where I left off. I just love Crate Paper's Snow Day Collection & this LO uses just 3 sheets of their awesome paper, which I happened to pick up for a $1.50 at Hobby Lobby's Basket Market. Seriously, if you have HLBM near you, you must go - there are so many great paper crafting bargains there! Plus, this collection was just perfect to scrap this photo of our son & fur baby enjoying some winter weather!

I also want to mention that I got the fabulous idea to use scalloped circles wrapped in twine as snowflakes from a LO designed by Lisa Storms. I found her LO featured HERE in a Scrapbooks Etc. post & just fell in love with the idea! I firmly believe in giving credit where it's due so I hope you also check out Lisa's fab blog RIGHT HERE too! Now, I'm off to work on my YMH project for Tuesday & hope you'll join me again then...and I would also be tickled if you decided to follow me on Pinterest.
