Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  I am just finishing cleaning up a few more things around the house and then I am ready to ring in the New Year!  I have decided that this year my word is ORGANIZE.  I am on a huge organizational kick right now and I am hoping it lasts!!!

Reflecting back on this past year, I feel extremely blessed.  I love my life, my family.  I am happy.  And boy does Webster's Pages ever make me happy too!!!  Just look at the gorgeous product from this new collection Composition and Color.  It seriously makes me swoon!

Sweet Friends

Friends.  They are so important in our lives, aren't they?  I am so lucky to have my sweet friends in my life whom I LOVE... these ladies are fun, supportive, loyal people.   Sadly, my besties have all moved away.  I miss not having them close by :-( and is it just me, or is it a lot harder to make good friends as an adult?

It sure is fun watching my daughters make friends.  They sure have no problem making new friends:-)  I used the perfect papers for this theme of my page:  Webster's Pages new Best Friends collection.

These girls play so amazing always brings so much joy to hear their laughter when together!  I hope this sweet relationship continues to grow and blossom!

A big thank-you and hug to all of my online scrapbooking friends!  I appreciate you all so much!

Snowflake Tutorial

I am so excited this year that we are covered in snow already!    It is a beautiful winter wonderland outside and it has me feeling very festive :-)

Today I am going to share with you a FUN tutorial on how to make a snowflake using a glue gun that I did for the Webster's Pages Blog the other day.  You can check that post out HERE.

Find a snowflake template that you would like to use and print it off.

Cover the template with a piece of wax paper.  I used tape to hold mine in place.  Spread a small amount of dish soap lightly over the wax paper.  This will help the snowflake to peel off easily.

Using a glue gun,  place glue onto the image of the snowflake.

Allow the glue to dry.  When dry, gently peel off the wax paper. Cover lightly with clear glue and sprinkle sparkles on top.

You are now finished and ready to use your snowflake as an embellishment for a scrapbook page, card or even as is to hang from your tree!  

I made a card using the Royal Christmas collection from Webster's Pages.

Hopefully you have heard about Webster's Pages Sprinkles...but if not, check out their blog HERE to find out all about it.  It is a little something each month that will make you HAPPY!!!!!!  And isn't that what life is all about?

For the Webster's Pages blog we were asked to create about something that makes us happy.  Immediately, I thought of my family.  Being with my family always makes me so is where I always want to be.  The only thing that makes it better ... is when I have my camera and am able to take pictures of my family.  Ahhh true bliss!

For this layout, I used the Park Drive collection (yes, AGAIN...I love this collection)!!!!  Here is a closeup:
