No longer dreaming of a White Christmas


Hi all, from sunny and snowy Colorado where I'm staying with family for Christmas and New Year in a place called Broomfield, just outside of Denver. And yes, I travelled with a scrapbooking kit :)

It's lovely here, and the shopping is marvellous! It's fun scrapping whilst away too, I brought along some essential supplies and got a chance to use my new Cricut Personal for the first time. This layout combines cutting, stamping and matting, all bread and butter techniques with some lovely silver and blue wintry colours, it's been my first white Christmas this year since I can remember and I loved it. The stamp is from the Christmas personal impressions set designed by Marion, which I've used again and again this season on cards and layouts. Here it's the centre of the large snowflake I cut and stickled within an inch of it's life.

I hope 2009 has been a good year for you all, but that 2010 is even better. Don't forget to treat yourself - the Sugar and Spice team are always welcoming and the classes are so much fun (when's the next Mega Crafting day M?). Happy stamping!
