I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas....Am I Awake Yet!

I'm Dreaming of a white Christmas!! Just like the ones I used to know..I really think that this year will NOT be a problem...no green Christmas this year!

All is white today in the Maritimes! A winter storm has covered us with over 40 centimeters of the white stuff...here is a photo of what I saw out my window today:

The best part of having a storm...is.....SNOW DAY!!! that's right..no work or school today..here are some of the things we did today!

The kiddo's enjoying the snow:

We baked Christmas Cookies:

What did I do you ask... Well, I just enjoyed the solitude and the warmth and the creative mojo that this time of year brings and I made a card for my Mom and Dad:

I hope you are all staying warm and cozy on this cold snowy day! Have a great evening!

Happy "Snowy" Easter

Well usually we can find bad weather on Good friday..this year it is actually on Easter! We woke this morning suprised to see snow had fallen..not just a light covering but 5 inches! Well no visits to relatives today. My Mom and Dad live 1 hour away from us so travelling is out of the question. So it is a relax and think about what this day really means. "Jesus" which by the way is hard to explain to a 5 year old boy who loves the fact that he gets chocolates and toys on this day.

So I hope you all enjoy your day with your families and friends, reflect on the miracles of this day and try not to eat too much Chocolate!

Month 2 and Still having a Blast!!

Okay..If I new this was going to be so much fun I would have signed up for a DT gig Sooner!! April kit has been sent to me and what an awesome kit!! Basic Grey - Pheobe Papers. At first I was a little freaked out by the colors and the patterns because I usually do more muted and distressed LO's. But when I stared working with this kit I was totally inspired. Here are a few examples:

Designed by Noella for Scrapbooker's Club House April Mini Kit.

Design Team Month 1

My first assignment as Design Team member for Scrapbooker's Club House
was so much fun. The March Cherry Arte kit was just phenominal....When the kit came in I was so eager to get started designing my layouts with this beautiful paper and embellishments.

My kit was the technical kit which required doing photo transfers with packing tape (eeek) what was I to do? How was I going to use the tranfers? Well, I mostly used them as my embellishments. I found the images in magazines..

Here are a few of my creations with this beautiful kit:

I am very excited to see what my next kit will be..I know that the owner Nicole will have a great kit for April put together for us....just have to wait for the mailman now!

Thanks again Nicole for giving me this awesome opportunity to be part of your Design Team and working with some great team mates who are truly inspiring, I am looking forward to seeing what the next 5 months will bring!!

I have to say this is a true account of this quote with the wonderful news I received this past weekend.

About two weeks ago I came across an announcement on Scrapsubmit.com that Scrapbooker's Club House
was looking for a new Design Team, they were looking for 6 new members for a 6 month term and is a Canadian company..so this peaked my interest. So off I went into the forum and found some already great Design Team Members. The owner Nicole of the online store was always on the board. I really felt at home there so I posted some of my layouts into the galleries , posted 3 layouts into the Design team applications area and posted on the forums. I got wonderful feed back from the ladies so I decided to send in my written application. I figure you will never know of you don't try..right? The announcement was to come at the finally of the online crop scheduled on the past weekend...My nervousness grew as the weekend came to a close. Announcements where posted on the board 4:00 pm MST (7:00 pm Eastern ) the announcement will come!! Yikes, my belly has butterflies...humm 38 applicants..Do I really have a chance?? I keep looking at all the wonderful layouts that the other applicants were sending..again, nervous! So, 7:00pm Sunday night Eastern time..The announcement came..the thread "The New SBCH DT and Guest DT's Find Out Now".... I opened it and at first only saw the list of the Guest Designers..and I thought oh well maybe next....wait...uh! I did not see that list....DT from Canada Martina, Lisa and Noella And the US: Cynthia, Vikki and Pamela !! What??? Is that really me?? Yahoo, it is me!!

I am so excited to get started on this wonderful journey with Nicole the owner of the Online store, Share the Design Team Coordinator, my Design Team team mates and Guest DT Team Mates. I hope I will inspire other members of the board as the outgoing DT did for me! So with this I leave you with my quote " Your Dreams are Always Within Your Reach as Long as you Believe In Them"....
