You Melt My Heart :)

Hi everyone! :)

Happy New Year!!!!!! :)

I wanted to share a layout I made for the latest challenge at "Challenge YOUrself" which is all about snowflakes! :) 

Living in Phoenix, Arizona, we DO NOT get snow .... at all .... the last time we saw snow in Phoenix, was 1997, and it evaporated before it hit the ground.  So, nope, no snow in Phoenix.

However, you drive 2-4 hours north of our city (still in Arizona though), and you will see snow during the colder months.  In fact, if you know your geography, the Grand Canyon is at the top of our state, and it snows like crazy there in the winter months. :) 

At the end of November, we drove up to Prescott, Arizona, with the goal of attending their small town Holiday parade.  However, the parade was cancelled due to weather, but we decided to go anyways to have dinner at our fave restaurant up there, and do some antique shopping. 

We were shocked to see HOW much snow was left over from the storm during that weekend! 

It was fun to see Brookie, Adam and Brookie's friend that we brought with us have fun playing in the snow (and it was Brookie's first time playing in the snow!!) :) 

I made this using PhotoPlay's Frosty Friends collection, and some little Pretty Little Studios goodies. :)









Here is the inspiration for this challenge :)

Santa :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share a layout I made using Mintay's "The Sweetest Christmas" collection :) 

When I knew that Adam was moving back, I asked Brookie if I convinced Adam to take Santa photos this year, would she do it too -- she agreed, so I voluntold (*wink*) Adam that we were doing Santa photos.... and poof!! Mom gets what she wants! :) 










And here are the other shots from the Santa visit :)

Altered cutting boards :)

Hi everyone :)

I was inspired by Theresa when she altered some cutting boards from the dollar store recently!  I went to the dollar store and bought the same ones, however, I didn't have to spray paint them like Theresa did, as they were all ready red, and I knew I was using them for Christmas gifts :)


I used some Simple Stories Snap! papers on these along with other items I had in my stash to alter these -- I am giving them to family and friends for Christmas, and I will be pairing them with other kitchen goods :)
