Hello!  I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!  I am so looking forward to a new beginning and things seem to be looking up!

I love this layout I created for The Crafty Scrapper Design Team.  This photo is my oldest grandson Logan and my oldest granddaughter Kenzie.  Every year after Christmas we take the grandkids to Tyler, Texas on a little trip.  We normally go to the Tyler area and stay at a resort.  This year we stayed in a cabin by Lake Palestine.  The views were spectacular!  

I really loved all the papers from Fancy Pants - Timbergrove Collection.

I thought a long time how to create this layout and then it suddenly came to me.!  I used red cardstock and then Fancy Pants Timbergrove red and white paper which I distressed.  I sewed around the edge to give myself a little border to place the blue paper with the snowflakes.  I then distressed again.  On the flip side I saw this gorgeous silver snowflake paper!  I think it looks yummy!  I used by Martha Stewart Cherish Punch.  I was given white ribbon with the pom poms and then I placed the sparkly blue ribbon in between!

This was rather hard to complete this look!  I had seen this done several months ago and I thought it would look great on this layout.  So, I cut out three strips of paper, added ink to the outside, and rolled them up.  I then added the eyelets, attached the paper and then added string to tie them up!  After I completed the first one the rest was rather easy!  Yea..score one for me!

Here you can see all the layers that I used.  I also used from Kaisercraft the wooden hinges plus I added the little pearls.  The flourish is from Maya Roads which I painted a light blue.  You can see the little snowflakes from Maya Roads and painted them blue but then added stickles plus a blue center.

Look at all the lovely flowers!  These are from Petaloo!  I also added a wooden square plus had a little tag that I painted and wrote "cousins" on it.  I had in my stash this cute little clear round ball and found some clear teardrops as well.
