Frosty fun

We had some wonderful frosty weather a few weeks ago. For the first time since we've been living here (9 years) we could ice skate in front of our house.

The boys had a ton of fun (and so did the big boys...)!

I made this page for the january/february contest on the scrappers anonimous forum.
We were only allowed to use blues and whites and here's the result..

Supplies: pp by my minds eye and prima, embossing powder by hein designs, flowers by prima and dutch moments, chipboard by maya road and 7 gypsies, alleene's real snow (you need that on a frosty lay out), key by tim holz, letters storebrand (zeeman)

Thanks for looking!

Photo cube

I altered this wooden photo cube. I actually started in the beginning of december. I started this project up again last night and this is the result..

I made covers for the hanging "albums" inside the cube.

I used embossing powder and alcohol ink on the clear butterfly. Liquid pearls can be found all over this project. The flowers are by pettaloo and prima. The bling swirl is by prima. PP by graphic45, chipboard bird and branch are by maya road.

Thanks for looking!
