Love & Joy

I promise I'm not purposely avoiding you all... quite the contrary! I'm living with excessive amounts of guilt for not logging on and showing you something new! :) So I took another break from my hectic schedule and decided to finish a scrapbook layout I started back in September. You may recognize the look?

This is my middle son, Morgan, back in 2002 trying to catch snowflakes. He's not very good at it, but when you factor in that he's probably only seen snow maybe 2 times in his life, you can understand why!

If you follow my blog regularly, you'll recognize that this page gets paired up with the one of my oldest son, Mason, who was much better at catching snowflakes. You can see him at this post. Oh, alright... I'll repost the picture here:

Remember that these pages have absolutely no stamping on them! And they both use chipboard that is included in the On Board Trinkets Ornaments kit that's in the current mini catalog (page 14). You can either cover this chipboard with the die cut Designer Series Papers included in the kit, or you can coat them with Craft ink and emboss them with clear powder as I have done here. The snowflakes also come from the mini - the Little Felt Flurries set (page 18).

So now I have both Love AND Joy... my life's complete. :) ...oh, wait a minute, I still need Patience! Ah, well, I'll get to him later.

Page Recipe:
Stamp Sets: NONE!
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft, Ruby Red Stampin' Write marker
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Ski Slope DSP, Baja Breeze, Ruby Red
Accessories: On Board Trinkets Ornaments, Little Felt Flurries, Wide Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon
Tools: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Tombow Multi-purpose Adhesive, Word Window punch
