Snow and Scrapbooking

Thank the Lord, the power just came back on!
Now, I love snow, and it is beautiful but without electricity it is just plain stressful.
I was ready ...
I carried in a bunch of wood,

Gathered the candles,

 And cleaned off my scrapbook space. Just in case I could make a way to scrap by candle light.

When the snow first started falling, and before the power went out, we were all so excited. 
A day at home all together with food and fire.

This sweet young man built me a snowman.

 Is that not the happiest little snowman you have ever seen?!

Well, the excitement ended when the power went out.
Just so you know, I can not scrap by candle light :(

Before all the snow began, I was on a scrapbook roll.
I've have had the best time. Winter just makes me want to scrapbook all the more.

Here are just a few pages I have finished in the past few days. 

Sorry about the poor quality of the photographs.
 I just haven't found the best way to photograph my pages yet. I'm working on it.

My next project is to learn all I can about stamping.
After watching a few videos about stamping, I think it is something I want to learn more about.

 My first step is going to be to have a Stampin up Party.
Doesn't that sound like fun?

My New Favorite Blog...

I have been in full scrapbook mode lately. A new grand-baby will do that to you!

 My oldest daughter, Emily, has finally discovered the wonderful world of scrapbooking! Yay for me!
 We have spend every spare minute scrapbooking over the last week.

I have been so pumped that I even bought some new scrapbooking tools...

My new self healing cutting mat. Don't you just  love the color, it so soothing! 

Also my new ATG gun.
This has to be the best new tool to date.

When I get in this full scrapbook mode, I spend a lot of time searching the Internet for new and inspiring scrapbooking blogs and websites.
There are alot of them out there, but this one has to be my very favorite right now..
