And I will bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moths.

So I am pretty stoked, for 2 reasons!
First, we are expecting a BIG snow storm here in Prescott, AZ, we're expecting a good foot of snow!! The temp has dropped like crazy! ok ok a foot is proly NOTHING compared to what some of you may get where you live, but for us folks, this is BIG! So I am excited, we'll get to play in it as Jayden calls it "no!! mom look no!!!" instead of its the cutest!
Ok, second reason, I got a Cricut Expression for Christmas and finally had time to take it out of it's box, her name is Betty;) I know, alittle behind on the Expression bandwagon, but hey I'm on. And I loooove it!

ok I suppose now I should move onto the rest of my post...
Here's a layout I made of Nik, as soon as I took, I knew which papers I would be using.
The pps are from Webster's Pages "Life's Portrait". The papers were so soft and whimsy, which was just right for this picture.

Here's a closeup of the bloomers paired with a handmade flower. The hyndrangeas on either side were cut from a WP paper. Love that sparkler rhinestone center for the main flower, those pieces are so beautiful and vintagey.

I cut the small circles from another WP paper to simulate snowflakes and just layered them on the WP lace trim.
Products Used: Life's Portrait Papers(US1748D), (US1749D), (US1746D),(US1747D); 6x6 paper kit(WPK16); Alphas: Storytellers Color: Paris(WS1025); Bloomers: Green; Vintage Inspired Netting: GOLD(WN1000); Lace trim(TM7043); Sparklers: Glitter(WGs01), Scalloped(WSS14)

Everything you see on this project, you can find in Tracy's shop, Stay True to God. Check it out!
I hope you find inspiration within this layout. Take time to stop by WP's ning InspireME.

Congrats on the Cricut Expression! What an awesome gift- and one I know you will put to wonderful use! I'll be looking forward to seeing what you will create with it!
Your "Imagine" page is fabulous! The colors are pretty much my favorites right now (I tend to go through phases, lol) and what you did with them is GORGEOUS! I love all the feminine touches and pretty details; they show off the darling photo of your daughter beautifully. What a fantastic layout!
Enjoy your pending storm- I hope you all have fun playing in the snow!
Happy New Year!
