Happy holidays!

Wow, I can't believe that time of year has already come and gone! Christmas is over, and tonight is the last night of Hanukkah (much to the dismay of my children, lol). Hubby was good to me this year - not only did I get the zoom lens for my camera, but he also got me a Slice... whoo! My parents also spoiled me with a GPS system for my car and some new clothes. Thanks again to my wonderful hubby and parents!! I wanted to drop off a new layout I just finished for Fancy Pants using the Arctic Chill line.

I cut out six of the cards from the card sheet to create a frame - I put a few of the cards back into the frame and also added a few photos there. I handcut the snowflakes from the papers and added Diamond Dust (one of my new favorite products!) to give them a snowy feel. I also heat embossed the edges of the frame and the background paper to add to the snow effect, as well. I made the frame for my title with my new Slice :-)

Well, my friends, with 2009 being only a few days away, I wish you all a FANTASTIC New Year's!! I hope that 2008 has treated you well and that 2009 treats you even better!

Wow, you did get treated well! I got the slice too! I had to giggle, because Hubby looked through one of my magazines and found the slice and bought it! I have the cricut that the bought me and the silhouette so do you think I have enough die cutting machines, but I could not hurt his feelings and I am excited to use it! Love your LO! I always love everything you do, one talented lady! Happy New Year, my friend!!!!
