Bo Bunny Dots ~Christmas Trees~

OK, I knoooow it's two days before Halloween...but I'm just in the Christmas spirit! Here's a little wall art for Christmas made entirely from Bo Bunny Basic Dots. I love this paper, nice and thick...you will never use plain cardstock again! This was a super quick and easy project...I found an old frame in the attic, free hand cut the trees and snow bank, then punched out the circles. The "holidays" is a piece of chipboard I covered with paper. Inked it all...added a few buttons...easy, cute and fast!

Cosmo Cricket ~OH JOY~ paper tree

I just can't get enough of this Cosmo Cricket "Oh Joy" Christmas paper line! I made this tree by cutting the paper into strips and pinning to a Styrofoam base. Then I spritzed the entire tree with Glimmer Mist and glued glitter on for a sparkly accent. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around my house!

Cosmo Cricket ~ OH JOY ~

You've been nice this year, right? So shouldn't you buy yourself just one little extra for yourself? Just one? You HAVE to scrap those Christmas memories, might as well be with the beautiful new line by Cosmo Cricket... OH JOY! This paper is worth a tiny little Christmas splurge for yourself. With wonderful names like, "Reindeer Games, Yuletide, Wrapping Paper, Merry & Bright", you are instantly transported directly to Christmas! Ho, ho, ho!

Here I have created a Christmas card using a vintage Santa image, popped it off of the card for dimension, and used the Cosmo Cricket OH JOY line. The shimmer on the image is Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels, as well as the snowflake templates.

Seasons Change

We're driving across town, I'm preoccupied and in a rush as usual. I hear an excited squeal from the back seat, "Momma! The trees are changing colors!" "Momma?" Uh-oh... question number ten of the how many questions can I ask Mom in an hour game... "Will the tree at Emma's school be orange again?" Oh good... an easy one... "Well bud, I'm pretty sure it will be orange again." Silence in the back seat... and then... "I hope it's red." Silence in the front seat... and then... "I hope it's red this year too. I'm ready for a change."
Change can be nice. It can make things fresh and exciting and makes you look forward to what each new day and season will bring. For those of you that don't get to enjoy the fall foliage in the season of change, here are few for you courtesy of Prima. Oh and Prima, if you read this.... I have two requests for red leaves this year.

Who knew a four year old could be so insightful?? I love that kid!
Speaking of love... I love this next layout! This is one of those layouts that reminds me of why I got into scrapbooking. A scrapbook page should be able to speak for itself... tell you so many things without even a word. That's why I love this layout by Rebecca (paper*bouquet). The picture says it all... true love.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life; That word is love. ~Sophocles
