Oh my, almost 100!! and layouts :)

Oh my oh my!!! I just noticed that I'm almost to 100 followers!! wowzers!  Well ladies, when I reach 100, I will be offering a blog candy to celebrate. I'm excited about that!!!

Speaking of blog candy, there's an AWESOME fellow crafter, SassyLady, who started her first blog not too long ago so that she could share her lovely creations and cricut/gypsy cut files. She's offering a super generous blog candy right now!!! Go check her blog out, become a follower and comment so you can have a chance at her blog candy!  That's ShesASassyLady.

I scrapped a bunch last weekend, I already posted the cards so I thought I'd post a couple layouts. :)

I did this for a challenge over at Scrapbook Dreamer. I find using white as a background very challenging... I'm not fond of that much white. But the challenge was to use at least 50% white, so I did. I used some Basic Grey papers from last year and cut the borders with fiskars border punches. The "snowflakes" were cut on my cricut, and I've forgotten which cart I used. LOL... yes I know they are red, I wanted them red! But I also used my MS branch punch to cut branches in white, which I then inked the edges and stickled with Stardust stickles. The Wonderland title are some glitter alpha stickers I had in my stash. This was the first snow that hung around and my son was pretty excited about it.

I love going back to a simpler style now and then, especially with papers like this that need no embellishment.  This is from a new line from Bo Bunny... you have to find these papers if you like snowflakes and the blues/plums they use on these papers. They are so gorgeous!  I just added the picture, the title and the handful of snowflakes cut from cricut Winter Woodland. I stickled the snowflakes and the top of "snow".  I added journaling after I took the picture... this is a photo of the very first snow on October 9, 2009; which came as a bit of a shock. I was on my way to my LSS when it started, and by the time I got there it was coming down in big fat clusters. And several scrappers out taking photos in front of the LSS. LOL!

Thanks for looking!
