{ ...*frosty sunday*... } was so fun to wake up to *glistening frost* this it was a little gift just for me :) makes me happy to see my breath in the morning! ...the dogs even lingered & sniffed the wintery had that cold, snowy smell...even though it's less than likely to snow here, it was nice to have that magical snowy smell :) ....without further ado...i am sharing my contribution to {CREATIVE SCRAPPERS} latest sketch.....#132 -- it's a great one & the creative team really created some awe inspiring make sure you stop over & check it out & even leave them some love!

as always, thank you for looking....and much <3 to y'all!

...and a few beautiful lines from one of my favorite holiday songs: *Snow, I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow*Snow, oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow*

{favorites 2010}

*{let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...}*

......oh i can't tell you how i miss the snow.....i really do....i know you all think i'm nuts...but i'm a winter weather girl.....always have been, there's something entirely magical and dazzling about falling snow....the way it blankets the earth and builds the beauty of the season....sparkling trees and jack frost nipping at your nose....yes i still naively believe in him too! ....this time of year fills my heart with hope and child-like happiness.....i look forward to it again as soon as it's gone....i love that others soften, treat each other a little kinder, give a little more than they normally would and act as they should act every day and not just for a season. <3 ....i think it is the incredible hope that everything is possible and that a star shines brightly to remind you...

the crazy kiddos are rounding out their Thanksgiving break....and enjoying the last remaining moments of un-reality...they'll be placed back in the thick of things on monday morning, i have to say that despite their crazy antics this making homemade shampoo and hiding it under their bed....or wishing explosive diarrhea on each other...i will miss them!

Here's the description....this kit is amazing!

The leaves have changed from green to beautiful shades of red, gold, and brown. The holidays are quickly approaching as we begin to make plans to visit family and friends.

To compliment this collection we have also added patterns from Pink Paislee and Fancy Pants. You will also find a complimentary brown alphabet sheet from Jillibean Soup and a mini alphabet set from Jenni Bowlin.

Fall is also a time for lots of texture, including sweaters, which is why these pieces of felt are so perfect for this kit. You will also find some fun tabbed dividers, ticket stubs and journaling spots. Do you plan on heading out of town? Or maybe you have guests coming to visit? You can use these whimsical chipboard stickers from Basic Grey to embellish your pages! You will also find corrugated shapes; cork circles, a decorative paper clip, paper flowers, and Baker's Twine to complete the Travelin' kit from Dixie Pieces.
