Love/Hate the Snow!

It has been snowing here all day! Perfect for staying in and scrapbooking. :) I took these photos of my boys last month when we had our first snow of the season... Zach loved it and Miles hated it, so I made them each a layout using the new "Snow Peeps" kit by SuzyQ and Amanda Heimann.

Christmas Stockings

Here's the advent I made, and I finally put those numbers I made to good use:

I got the idea from the Martha Stewart site. I was actually looking for stocking ideas because I don't really like the ones we have now, but when I saw this I thought it was such a cute idea. I found 12 pairs of socks in various Christmas colors, strung them up and taped the cutout numbers on. I put little treats in each one and every day the kids get to have one. They love it!


My Angel

I used SuzyQ's new "Heavenly Peace" kit and the "Heavenly Peace Add-On" for this layout. How cute are those little nativity animals?

Fall Leaves

I started this layout a week or so ago for the dare at The Digi Dares... but I missed the deadline. Oh well, I'm glad I finally got it done, and I was really happy how it turned out. I love participating in the dares because it always gets me thinking "outside the box", so to speak.

Christmas Countdown Freebie

Holy cow, I can't believe it's December. Seriously, I think November went by faster than any month this year! I'm certainly not ready for Christmas yet, but I'm working on it. The other day I got the great idea to make some numbers for a countdown I'm making... I thought they turned out kinda cute so I'm sharing them here. Here's what they look like:

I just printed them on cardstock and cut them out using a scallop circle punch. Unfortunately that's as far as I've gotten - like I said, I'm not really ready for December to be here yet! - but as soon as I get my whole project finished I'll be back to share photos.

You could also just use the files on digital layouts. They can easily be recolored in photoshop to match your specific project. I've included the individual .png files, as well as an 8.5x11 sheet that makes it easy to print.
