Snow Day!!

Today is a snow day here in my little corner of New Brunswick. It was so nice to sleep in!! I did feel a bit bad for my DH who had to go to work. I wish he could have stayed home with me today. I did do some scrapbooking last night. I participated in the sketch challenge at paws on scrapbooking and I have included the LO I did below. It is for my dominican album. If you would like to check out some of the other amazing work done with last night's sketch you can check it out here.

Here is my take on the sketch!(sorry for the poor photo quality as it was taken at night, I will try to take a photo later today)

Also would you like to win some blog candy? Check out this blog and her gorgeous cards for a chance to win some goodies!

There are 29 participants and these are all being revealed at the same time! The LO we are scrapjacking is by the talented Christine Middlecamp. You can check it out here if you are interested in participating.

Here is a wine container that I altered for a dollarstore challenge on Paws on Scrapbooking.

Happy New Year!!!

Hope everyone had a great New Year's eve! We had fun, went out to dinner, and then played scrabble and rock band. Well it was fun for a while, something i ate last night did not agree with me, I can't figure out what it was but at least I feel better now!! I also did some scrapbooking yesterday and completed a mini album for my friend who had her baby at the beginning of December which was 6 weeks early!!! I can't post it yet as I have entered it in the guest design team contest at Paws on Scrapbooking but if you would like you can take a look at it on the paws site here.

Hope you all have a happy new year and are successful in your new year's resolutions!!!
