Speechless!




I was absolutely stunned to see that my Let it Snow layout made the cover of Scrapbooking and Beyond's Winter 2009 issue. This is more than a dream come true and I think I have been walking on Cloud 9 for a few days now. I have to give most of the credit to my cute little munchkin, Maddie, for her inspiring personality which always shines in her photos.


This layout was designed for a series at SB&B called A Flourish for Every Season, which began in the Spring 2009 issue. The Winter issue is our final installment of the wonderfully fun series. I specifically chose the KI Memories Frosty Lace Cardstock as a major design element for its flourish pattern. I also love Pebbles Inc's Snow Fun collection. It is the perfect combination of blues, greens and whites and feels perfectly cold.

This little Snow Day mini album with the same Snow Fun collection can also be seen in the SB&B Winter 2009 Issue. I used a Plain Jane chipboard album that had scallops on the first layer and then wielded my Fiskars Apron Lace punch to mirror the pattern on the rest of the layers.

Thank you for stopping by and celebrating with me - Liz

Liz! The cover! That is sooo freakin' awesome. Huge congrats to both you and Miss Maddie. You have officially achieved the greatest scrappy goal. There is nothing else left to do. Well I guess you could design your own line of pp's - but as we all know... this year's pp's are next year's clearance bin. But that magazine will be cherished forever!
