Creative Scrappers Sketch #140 using Cosmo Cricket

Good morning! I came across this CUTE sketch last week! It just so happened that Amy at Birds of a Feather had challenge us to take 5 pictures of what winter means to us then scrap them! I had missed my chance at getting snow picture. But came up with 5 others. Perfect timing as its a twofer...I got to complete two different challenges with one layout! :-)

I just LOVE my Cosmo Cricket! Jolly By Golly was perfect for this layout! :-)
Tip: NEVER EVER try to match cardstock with poor lighting at night. In the morning you will regret it! ;-) I used some of the fun rub-ons on the pictures and to add a little something to the title.
Why oh why did this turn sideways? Anywho....I pleated a strip of paper then sewed it down. I also did some faux paper pleating, love the looks of it. I couldn't find just the right colored numbers, so I sanded these Pink Paislee ones down and used distressing ink on them.

5 things that mean winter to me:
1. Fun hats! I am very fortunate to have a super talented mom. She made both my kids hats that they LOVE! (although the one shown she bought).
2. Photo opportunities, like Maddy taking all her clothes off down to her diaper and putting on Peytons boots!
3. Icy cold weather. I tried to catch the car thermometer reading 'ice' but didn't catch it in time. 4. I LOVE my slippers and where them ALL the time when I'm at home! The ones in the picture are my favorites.
5. We seem to get more snuggle time and couch time in.

The last time we were at my moms it all of a sudden got eerily quiet. I went to check to see what the Little Miss was doing and she was reading Mema's book! :-) She was quietly talking as she turned the pages! Haha!
Mema has this LadyBug game. Peyton LOVES it! He could play it for hours and if he can't find anyone to play with him, he plays by himself! :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
