Groundhog's day, Valentine's Cards, Feb. Pagemaps and more

Happy Groundhog's Day! Unfortunately our groundhog was snowed in it's hole under 18+ inches of snow this morning so I guess that means more winter for us :( My husband spent all morning clearing up the snow with our neighbors and now we are all inside enjoying our snow day. I hope your morning wasn't as snowy and messy as mine ;)


Today is Valentine's Card Day on the Bo Bunny blog. I made two cards to give to my little girls. This first one is for Frances. She is addicted to Pandas right now.

(supplies: Bo Bunny Crush papers, Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock,
Bo Bunny Crush 12 x 12 chipboard, bling and ribbon, Cricut Pagoda cartridge.)

I made this one for Isabel. We have two dachshunds to I thought this little guy was perfect.

(supplies: Bo Bunny Crazy Love papers, Crazy Love 12 x 12 chipboard,
Crazy Love Noteworthy, ribbon and bling, Cricut Paisley cartridge)
Yesterday I received the February Pagemaps newsletter in the email. I was super excited because the Nikki Sivils DT was asked to contribute for February and I was one of the lucky girls to create a layout. I received this sketch from Becky and I love it! I was so happy to be able to contribute I volunteered for any size. This was my first time making an 8 1/2 x 11 page, but I didn't mind because Isabel's baby book is this size. I created this layout for the front page of her book.

buttons and brads, thickers, Jenni Bowlin butterflies, ribbon, pearls, Cricut Give a Hoot cartridge)

Lastly the other day I received this super sweet blog award from Paula, aka 'The Scrapbook Speedway'. I can't thank her enough for thinking about me and am more appreciative than she knows. You have to check out her blog too because she is one awesome scrapper!

Along with this blog award I am to tell 8 things about myself so here goes....

1. I love Chai Lattes. I could drink them every morning if they weren't so darn expensive.
2. I love to watch tv. My DVR is always at 99% though because unfortunately I have no time to watch tv.
3. My dream vacation is to go to Alaska. I will make there one day when the girls are older.
4. Pizza is my favorite food and I could eat it everyday. My favorite pizza topping? Pepperoni and spinach of course.
5. Frances was my grandmother's name and is also the patron saint of animals. I love animals and my grandmother took care of me as a little girl. That is where my Frances gets her name.
6. I am terrified of elevators. I will always take the stairs if I have a choice.
7. I go to bed around 9pm every night. I would go to bed earlier if I could, but Frances doesn't always cooperate.
8. I am only 5 feet tall. Yep, I am very short! The shortest in my family. Except for my Grandmother who was shorter than me.

Now I am supposed to pass this on to 8 other bloggers, but honestly I can't choose! So let me think about this a little more.

Thanks for coming by today!
