Is it really MARCH already?

Where is the year going? I seriously canNOT believe it is March 1!

We've had an interesting couple of weeks here at the Coleman bear "bwoke his wittle foot" on February 15th. Actually he really smashed his toes to bits after accidentally pulling the kitchen table bench over but there was a slight fracture in the foot. Then, the very next morning, his sister was diagnosed with the flu. I don't know what clued me in...perhaps her temperature of 105*!!!
All is well now though. We got her Tamiflu within 24 hours of the fever starting and would you knocked that flu right out! Fever was GONE within 12 hours of the first dose and she NEVER developed any respiratory symptoms at all. AND since I isolated her before anyone else got home, NO ONE else in our rather LARGE family contracted the nasty virus. Oh, yeah, she DID have the flu vaccine this year, oh well.

So I actually have been finding a tiny bit of scrappy time here and there. First up is this Snow Day layout. This is one of those really satisfying layouts...I thoroughly enjoyed every step of creating this project from photography to that last little snowflake detail. I am still really loving working with GCD's line, Joyful Peace. Even though it is technically a Holiday line I am loving it for a variety of projects. Some of the other bit and pieces on this layout include lace from an MCS kit, chipboard snowflakes from a Swirlydoos kit and lots of Prima. I used three MS punches to create some of my own snowflakes from the GCD papers. The title is cut with my Cricut using the Songbird cart. LOVE that cart!!!

I also have a new challenge up at Kitchen Keepsake. It is a VERY simple challenge: use a banner on a recipe layout. Sound a little familiar? I am just called to put banners everywhere these days. They are so much fun to create and they add such a playful touch to both layouts and cards and my mantle and the dining room chandelier is my example:
The papers are from the Gourmet Holiday line by Cookbookin' and the recipe is from my dear friend Shannon who has really been helping build up my stash of family friendly dinners. Just click on the image if you'd like to try the recipe yourself;).

This last weekend was lots of fun...I got to dance with my darling son at his Grand Cotillion Ball. Yeah, no, he did not have the time of his life.
But he was soooo the sharpest looking guy at the ball!

 He called this his "French waiter look."

Can't wait to scrap these~~~
