Toes in the Sand.....

Here is another LO that I created over at paws on scrapbooking during the cyber crop this weekend. I didn't get to scrap much today as I had dance practice for 3 hours, but the dancing was so awesome!! I am loving our lyrical dance we are doing. We are dancing to Slow Me Down by Emmy Rossum. You should check this song out if you don't know it, I absolutely love it! We first heard it on So you think you can Dance Canada, and here is the link to the video if you have never heard it, be sure to take a listen!

This LO is for my Dominican album and the challenge was to scrap a picture that didn't have a face in it. I was so greatful for this sketch as I kept putting it off as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it! I really like how this turned out! TFL!!
Products used:
PP - Ki Memories
Ribbon - Misc

We have a big snow storm coming tonight, hopefully we won't get too much!! I don't want to have to shovel lots tomorrow! Have a great week!!

Snow Day!!

Today is another snow day!! We now have had 5.5 this year! I am hoping to get some scrapping in after I do a bit of housework. But it was so nice to be able to sleep in this morning! I hope that the snow clears up for tomorrow as my Dad is supposed to be driving to Toronto tomorrow to move my sister home. I am SUPER excited for her to move home but I hope my dad gets there ok.
I have made another card and I am not sure if I like it or not. So I am going to post the picture below and I would like you to leave a comment here suggesting how to I could change it to make it better. It just feels like it is missing something. Here it is!

I appreciate your comments and please be honest in your opinion of it and what I need to change! Have a great day and try to stay in from the snow!
