***Snow, snow, snow***

It is always snowing here. Everyday it snows. It sure looks pretty today, but I am getting a little tired of being inside all day! Poor Frances always wants to go out, but Isabel is still just a little too young to spend the day outside making snowmen and throwing snowballs. So inside we stay.

A few weeks ago Grandma came over and Frances and I were able to spend a few hours outside. She loves the snow! And she looks so cute all bundled up. I created this layout for the Bo Bunny blog's "Sew Dang Cute" post. I love these papers, especially the background one, and they looked great with these pictures. I like how the pictures stand out because they don't exactly match the papers.

I used the Bo Bunny Winter Joy Collection and the Cricut W
inter Woodland cartridge to cut my tree and snowman. I hand stitched the snowflake flourishes with embroidery floss and machine stitched around the background paper. To create my letters I used a clear embossing stamp pad to ink up the top of the chipboard, poured some white embossing powder and a little glitter over it, shook off the excess (so the powder just sticks where I used the embossing pad) and then heated it with an embossing  heat tool. Instant snow!

Thanks for stoppying by! ~ Sarah
