Ok...I enjoy summer, I do, but I'm already ready for it to be over. I don't necessarily long for the snow...but I would be ok with some cooler days. Maybe I'm weird. And maybe that's ok. :)
So, I don't scrap in order. When I let go of that several years ago, it was such a freeing concept. I scrapped what I wanted, when I wanted. And the other day I was looking through my chipboard stash and saw the snowflakes and knew I wanted to use them and make a winter layout. When I looked through my pictures for some snow pictures I found a couple that I had completely forgot about. I do that often. And Hayden LOVES this picture, he is very proud of his snow booger. So I smiled and I scrapped, remembering that day where we played in the snow and I took this picture.
The papers, die cut frame, stickers and trims are all from My Mind's Eye. The fabulous chipboard is from Magistical Memories. I used two of the Snow Flurries pieces, and one of the Instant Frames.
That bottom snowflake is sprayed with Glimmer Mist and then covered with Helmar's Crackle technique. (The same could be said of the chipboard frame.) The top snowflake is sprayed with white Glimmer Mist. And that brad in the center is from My Mind's Eye.
Those letter stickers ("Snow") are from October Afternoon and the "Lovely" chipboard letters are from My Little Shoebox. Those awesome trims (including zipper), as already mentioned are from My Mind's Eye.
I did use adhesive from Helmar to put the whole thing together. I used their 450 Quick Dry adhesive.
So I've been canning a bunch lately. And eating a ton of food from our garden. We have an abundance of zucchinis and squash. Anybody got any good recipes for those? I've done vegetable lasagna and have been throwing them in casseroles. Also served some plain with chicken and some in a salad. Canned some zucchini relish. Oh and we have made a bunch of zucchini bread too! What else can I do? Anybody? I need some new ideas. The boys are really getting sick of them.
Wishing you a FANTASTIC Monday!!!! :)
