Remnants take 2

This past year I made a mini of things that I love. I used a Cosmo Cricket mini I'd coveted off Peachy Cheap but never used, plus some dies from Quickutz and some My Little Shoebook mini stickers (I love those so much I could eat them).Here's the final product:

It was fun trying to take arty pictures of everyday things.

BTW, the white line around the photos I learned how to do from a digi/hybrid tutorial on Cathy Zielske's blog. If you click on the digi tag, then search around, you can find it too.

Here's another couple pages that never saw the online light, topical because they're winter themed:

To make the snowflake, I used a template from Crafter's Workshop ( has them) and some Tattered Angels Marshmallow mist. I love red and brown as a winter combo--so cozy.

The purpose of snow is hot chocolate after, I think.

The journaling for this layout is one of my favorite quotations:

"Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy marshmallows, and it's kinda the same thing."

If the purpose of snow is hot chocolate, then the purpose of hot chocolate is marshmallows for my boys!
