I used the back of some old KI Memories frost paper to get a frosty white cardstock and then heat embossed an HA snowflake stamp with white embossing powder. I added a HA pearl to the center to make them pop. I colored the snow girl with markers and added lots of bling with a glitter pen...sorry, it's hard to see in the photo. I also added some pink chalk to her cheeks to give her the look of being out in the cold. I recently saw one of Jennifer's winter cards where she layered vellum to create a snow scene and thought I would try it here and I like the result! I created a pocket too with the vellum by stitching around the edges. To finish it off I found some silver, mirror like confetti and stamped the sentiment, "be merrry" on it with Staz On ink and attached it with a pearl straight pin.
Overall, I had fun with it. I think I was just trying to keep my fingers busy so I wouldn't order one of these......The Fuji Instax Mini. I really want one! Sigh. Maybe soon.
Okay, off to bed. Got a bit of a tummy ache. Be back soon...

This is a layout I made about my dad's 60th surprise birthday party that we threw him back in June. We had Alex's band play including a cover of one of his favorite Willie Nelson songs. My brother put on a super funny video with pictures and we had a Richard's Hall of Fame with childhood memorabilla. It was so much fun!
The journaling reads, "Celebrating 60 years...Dad's 60th surprise birthday party." I had MANY, MANY pictures from his party and I didn't want to do multiple pages so I created mini prints and was able to fit 24 photos on the page! :) Also made a card.....
Love how bright it is. Hard to see in the picture but I heat embossed the Hero Arts Background image with clear embossing powder and used a paper flower inside a metal frame charm. I'll be back soon with my other projects. Still putting finishing touches on them....

And since I can't go without sharing something creative...here is a little goodie for my sister and brother-in-law. Today is their anniversary...16 years. So I used a template by Jennifer to create a holder for some cookies I baked...
ETA: An instructional video by Jennifer to create these bags can be found HERE.That's all I got for now. Thanks for coming by! Have a great weekend!

"Hi there! My Name is Wendy Sue and I am so excited to be joining Heather and her fun team here at the Bakery! J I live in a beautiful mountain valley in Utah with my incredible husband, Brad, and our four beautiful children – Meagan, Josh, Seth, and Zach. I have been paper-crafting since I was a little girl and I’ve always kept a scrapbook…well, my mom kept mine until I was in high school, then I started my own. I have been fortunate to work with some of my very favorite manufacturers over the years, and I am so grateful for each and every opportunity I’ve been given. I’ve had several projects published in various magazines, including Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Trends, and Cards. I am passionate about journaling and recording my thoughts and feelings as well as the “who, what, when, and where.” This hobby has definitely helped me focus on the most important aspects of my life – namely family – and I’ll forever be grateful for the lessons I’ve learned, people I’ve met, and wonderful opportunities that have come my way in the last several years. "
Can't wait to work with you Wendy!
Off to relax. Be back soon....

The boys said they needed their energy before the gig so I made them a plate of brownies (like I do before every practice at our house) and this is what the plate looked like after 2 minutes (lol) ...I'll be back soon hopefully with a video from today and some creative shares from my scrappin' trip with the girls tomorrow afternoon. Have a great weekend!
