Do you wanna build a snowman?

It doesn't have to be a snowman! I chose to create mine out of paper! So often we document our lives, our children, our relationships , and memories; and most often that comes in the form of scrapping photos with our children in them; but sometimes, its fun to just scrap without our children's shining faces. I chose to document the big hit in our home lately, as I am greatly sure it is in your home as well! My radio, blu-ray player, coloring pages... they are all over run by this amazing movie.

This weeks sketch reveal over at Let's Capture Our Memories was the perfect fit for this subject.
The three photos down the middle are perfect for a replicated photo of the movie cover! I also got to use my UWS snowflake confetti for the most perfect embellishment for this layout.
I can honestly say that the girls have never been sooo excited over a scrapbook layout in their lives.
If you feel greatly inspired by this super fun sketch, don't hesitate to play along with us. Don't forget to link up your layout HERE for a chance at an awesome prize from LCOM.
There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but the linking form will close on the last day of the month at 11:55pm (Atlantic Standard Time) to allow us to find a prize winner.
Thanks for peeking, and I hope you all now have this song stuck in your head ;).

over the hill

I'm up today on the UmWowStudio blog, sharing a page celebrating my 30th birthday. I was lucky to be born on a major holiday; the 4th of July. We don't normally celebrate my birthday, as the days are full of independence day activities, but this year, with the impending move and the decade birthday, I felt we should atleast squeeze in a cake!
I was super happy how festive this layout felt. Just right for a birthday photo!
Can you see that balloon chipboard. The UWS celebrate confetti is the most amazing product for birthday projects. It also includes these fun starbursts I added, along with cupcakes, streamer confetti, and birthday hats! I also framed out my photo in this super fun UWS speech bubble frame!

On another note, today marks two weeks left in our California home. We are planning to leave on the 25th and stay in a hotel with hubby until the 28th, when he completes his career course, and we depart for Northern New York. There is still much packing and sorting and purging to do, and I chose to keep my daycare kids through this week, adding to my time crunch, but how can you say no to loving on sweet little ones a bit longer!
I hope everyone has an amazing start to their week, and thanks for popping in!
