Snow Day! Who Doesn't Love a White Christmas?

Good morning everyone!  Welcome to The Bugbytes, Sunday edition.  It's Sabrina from Sabriolet Designs here to share my latest scrapbook pages with you.  If you are a regular follower of mine, you know that when I scrapbook I usually make a double for a book I have been putting together for my Mom.  Well, this double layout is the LAST creation for my Mom's book.  It is full to the brim and DONE.  In fact, that baby is riding on a truck somewhere on its way to Colorado as I type.  It is such a glorious thing to be finished with a long term project!  This sketch is from one of my favorite places, Sketch Savvy.  Sherry Stringfield is a big fan of layering and borders, and well, that's probably why I like her sketches so much.  I tend to create very full and sometimes a little busy pages.  Her sketches have a lot of elements and I am always challenged to find new and creative ways to  make my page speak to me.  This double layout has a winter time theme.  In fact, these pictures were taken on Christmas Day 2010 when it snowed here in GA and we all went sledding on the golf court in back of our house.  I have so many fond memories of that day, mostly because it reminded me of my childhood in Colorado, and because for the first time ever, my children got to play in real snow.  It's a strict requirement for just about every complete childhood!  I printed these pictures out probably six months ago and just could never really think about how I wanted to put this together.   I went searching for a sketch not long ago, and it all came together.   

It's one of my favorite pages of all I time I think.  I used my Silhouette for most of the die cutting, but there are some Cricut cuts scattered throughout.  My cartridge library is so extensive that I don't know that I will ever totally put my Cricut away.  The Silhouette does things so well though, it does make it temping, or rather easy to work with just one system.

I also tried something new - stamping on a layout.  These stamps are from Papertrey Ink and I stamped directly onto the layout.  I was a bit nervous about it, but it turned out pretty well.

My favorite part of the page is this banner.  I adore, adore, ADORE how well my Silhouette Cameo cut out these snowflakes.  It handled the details with no problem and coming from the Cricut world this is nothing short of amazing.  This is an incredible machine, and if you are thinking about getting on you can't go wrong doing so.   Don't you like the sledders?  I think they are so cute!

Thank you everyone! I feel like I finished my Mom's book with a bang. And I am so thrilled about being done and not having to worry about working around the clock to get it done and in the mail, etc.
