01.10

Hey everyone!  We are having a snow day here in the Ghahary household.  Everyone is home today including my hubby as we are in the midst of a 48 hour snow escapade.  They called off school this morning but I think it will be canceled again tomorrow as the snow is not supposed to stop until sometime Friday afternoon.  Again, I ask you, does Mother Nature need a calendar?  March is just a few days away and with nearly 2 feet of snow predicted we probably won't see green until May at this rate!  Ugh!

So how about some cute photos of my oldest to cheer me up?  Sounds good right?  LOL!  This is the last of the projects I created for my guest designer role for Pink Paislee this month.  Actually this was the first layout I created but the last one I am sharing.  LOVE these photos of Darian!  Doesn't he look like such a little man wearing his Daddy's tie?  I can't believe how fast he is growing up but I am SO proud of him for the little man he is becoming.

 

This layout was all about the layering and the embellishments.  I always love the Punch Outs that Pink Paislee has to go with their collections and the 365 degrees die cuts are no exception.  Really fun shapes!



And the Cork Buttons and Bella Brads?  Heaven!  Do I really need to say more?  LOL!  Seriously though they are very fun to work with.  The cork is soft and you can literally just pierce your brad right through it.  And I love that the brads are so chunky and opaque to boot.  Gives them a really cool look!

 

And finally just playing with one of my Martha Stewart punches.  I have collected quite a number of these punches recently along with  all of the Stampin' Up! punches I own from back in the day when I was a demonstrator.  I was having issues with how to store them all since the drawers of the Store in Style cubes I was using were getting too heavy and the bottoms kept falling out - not good!  LOL!  I finally decided to buy a Making Memories Embellishment Center that now hangs on the wall by my work station and I have a bunch of my punches sitting on it now.  33 to be exact.  With room for lots more.  I love being able to see them all now and not have to rifle through drawers to find which one I'm looking for.  And I bought the embellishment center with a 50% off coupon which makes it an even more rewarding deal.  LOL!



That's all for today folks!  I'm off to snuggle with the boys on the couch while we watch the Garfield movie.  We've already gotten in a game of Super Mario Bros monopoly as well.  And all before 10am!  Kinda makes all the snow worth it - just a tiny bit!  :)

Isn't this a crazy winter?! We've gotten more snow this year than we have in the 3 years since we moved here to Texas.

This was my favorite of your 365 projects- love this one, Lynn!
