A mini album and a frame.

Hello all. Are you getting ready for the blizzard too? In Chicago it is supposed to snow 18 to 24 inches in under 24 hours. YIKES! That's a lot of snow! All the schools are closing early and will be closed tomorrow, plus lots of businesses are doing the same.

I am kind of torn about this. I am tired of shoveling and driving in snow, but it will be fun to stay home tomorrow and play in the snow. I remember making snow forts and having snowball fights when school was cancelled and it was so fun! Plus Frances keeps asking to go out in the snow to play so tomorrow may be the perfect day.

All this talk of snow has be thinking about summer again. Are all these posts starting to sound the same??? I just can't help it. I love summer and can't wait to get outside again. I created this little mini-album of all the things Frances loves to do in the summer. I used the Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker "Summer" line and a Maya Road chipboard mini-album. The pink flowers are from Maya Road too.

This was really fun to make and the "Summer" papers have so many cute little sayings and critters.

I also have one other project to share today. This altered frame I made is on the Nikki Sivils blog today. It is currently on display in her booth at CHA. The picture is of my sweet baby girl Isabel only one day old. I used the "Max and Mollie" collection to make all the flowers, punched some butterflies and then cut out the 'Heaven Sent' sentiment from the cut ups paper. She is heaven sent for sure.

The frame and easle are from IKEA. They come infinished so I just painted them with some brown acrylic paint. They are only a dollar each too!

Thanks for stopping by today. If there is snow expected by you stay safe!
