Slip and Slide

It's FREEZING out!! The past few days haven't been bad, but we had an artic blast come in and I'm dying. It's 27 degrees out and much colder with the wind chill. The wind is awful!!

So, to keep me warm, I worked on a summery layout. I love these photos. Ryan and the girls had so much fun this summer on the slip and slide.

This was a 'just for fun' page. I used some Sassafrass Lass and October Afternoon on it. The buttons are Doodlebug.

This next card is pretty sunny, too. I did it for the December sketch over at Emma's. Lots of BG Nook and Pantry on it.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. We sure did! Look at what I've been playing with this week:

I'm so excited! I love my phone. And I've been taking lots of videos. Santa brought me a tabletop tripod, so I'm hoping to figure out how to post some tutorials on here!

That's about it for today. Have a great day!

Oh, I LOVE my Flip. Chloe uses it all the time too and makes me little videos of her toys talking to each other. LOL. I should definitely use more. What I do is tape it and then load it up onto photobucket, then you have a link that you can post to your blog. It's going to be so fun to see you on video! Yayyy!
