~Happy Hump Day! New tutorial and layout too!~

I have been so BUSY!
This morning I got up and scrapped this layout....
Now, if you think that everyone else's work is perfect except yours,
let me share a funny story with you this morning!

I scrapped this page and I like it, so of course I wanted to get the perfect picture.
But it's winter, so there are not always sunny "natural light" days happening
at my house. Well, I got my photo studio out, but honestly I still need natural light
because it does not have enough on these dark day.
I saw a snip of bright light outside and RAN out to take a quick picture in between
rain clouds...I was not fast enough!
I was going to photoshop and edit the picture to make it perfect for you
all and I probably will for Timeless Daydreams, but for my blog
I got to thinking..."You know what? Not every moment or LO is perfect!
I am just going to show everyone what happens when a HUGE raindrop hits your page!" LOL
So here it is hehehe
This is the BEAUTIFUL January Kit from Timeless Daydreams,
another site I just love and am a Guest DT this month.Now the lace and big snowflakes are mine
but the rest is the kit...
I hand made these lace flowers....
do you think I need to make a tutorial??
Also this morning I made a quick tutorial on using the
FREESTYLE MOUSE cutter from Purple Cows.
I forgot to mention on the video it also cuts fabric...and pretty much anything else!

Hope it works for you. if you have questions let me know!

Yesterday I scrapped THREE layouts,
let me tell you why...
I broke into the February kit for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out
and it totally inspired me to scrap! You know how you get
a kit and you know it's special because you cannot think about
anything BUT scrapping with it!! OMG that is SO the SFTIO February kit!
AND...I was told..that SFTIO is going to have a HUGE crop in February!
So JOIN and tell them I sent ya...
Guess who is HOSTING the crop??
ME! That's right MZZZZ PINKY!
So you know it will be fun :)

OK back to creating and cleaning, I need to get a
hot dinner ready for these hungry boys coming home!

Have a GREAT Wednesday!
~Thank YOU for stopping by~

Hey Pretty Girl! I am laughing because running to the 'sunlight spot' is something you see me doing in my house, I can SOOOO relate to that! No sunny day, no good pics!!!!!! lol And photography is my weakness on a good day! So this post nails it! Your lace flowers are so pretty, you will be the perfect host for SFTIO! Can't wait to see! xOxO deb
