And here is my creation...

Close-up of Right page...

It's all about the PINK and the BLUE and the SNOW.  This is our daughter at 21 months.  Her 2nd time seeing snow... and she pretty much could have cared less that we built her a snowman.  She just wanted to sit on the stairs and munch on her goldfish crackers.  Finally after a few hours... she decided that "Mr. Frosty" looked like a nice person to say Hello too.  

I am entering this layout into the following challenges as well:

 Getting Scrappy Ch. #21  - Use EMBOSSING on your layout along with a Cricut/SVG cut.  My embossing is on the ligh blue paper rectangles.  They are embossed with snowflakes. The 'Joy' banner and the word SNOW are cut with the Cricut. 

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - Die Cuts - Use DIE CUTS on your layout. Again the banner, the word 'Snow' are cut out using my cricut and then the 2 colored snowflakes are from a Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin kit.

ScrapFIT Weekend Warm-up 18  - Use STAMPS on your layout.  The top blue border is stamped with snowflakes and then the snowman tag is also stamped and colored.

Thanks so much for looking and coming to visit... and I hope you find some time to play along with us at  Lasting Memories # 65 challenge this week!!!
