Peace Joy Love & Cheer Scrapbook Page

I finally sat down to make a scrapbook page. It's been far too long since I've added to the kids' albums (obviously, since this photo was taken for Christmas 2003)! I was inspired by a sketch I saw in this month's Scrapbooks Etc. and I went with it, giving myself permission to actually use all those cute little felt flurry snowflakes! I also thought it was about time to try out my "Join the Cheer" Big Shot Die since it hadn't been used yet.

Christmas Reed Diffuser

First of all, I'm sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time. Most people become too busy to stamp during Summer, while that seems to be the only time I have time to stamp! My September was filled with getting back to work (up to 80% instead of the 40% I taught the last five years), getting the girls settled into a new routine (especially with my youngest starting Kindergarten), and taking a group of students to Prince Edward Island for a National Leadership Conference (which was a blast, even if it did leave me far behind in my marking!). Today, however, I set aside some time before cleaning my stampin' space for tomorrow's club night to make a simple project. Yesterday I found this reed diffuser on sale. My wheels have been turning since I saw something similar altered in one of my Stampin' UP! magazines, so I happily picked up a couple of them. This is what I had time for today.
