It's Been A Funny Old Day

Evening lovely Bloggers.

It's been a funny old day after a funny old night. We were sleeping soundly last night when suddenly the burglar alarm went off. Without thinking we woke up and flew out of bed and down stairs to turn it off, then Hubby went to investigate. Luckily, it was only the cats who, it appears, have learnt to open the kitchen door and chase around the living room setting off the detector. Guess who was not popular!!!! We will be making sure the door is properly wedged from the outside before we go to bed tonight.

Consequently, we have all been walking around with fuzzy heads today from a distinct lack of sleep.

I haven't produced anything worthwhile to show you so I thought, as it's supposed to be the last day of Winter, I'd share a layout I did of the snow on Christmas Eve. I used lots of embellishments made on my new Slice and was quite pleased with the results I got.

The snowflake paper was Fancy Pants and the music paper the inside of a lovely shaped paper from the Snowy Serenade set from Bo Bunny, who make my favourite papers at the minute. They are just gorgeous.

The title was cut on the Slice, as was the shadow for Winter, which I added glitter to for extra sparkle.

The snowflakes were cut in different sizes, the first layer sprayed with Denim Glimmer mists and the top layer covered with Martha Stewart snow glitter.

I printed the swirls from a Photoshop brush and then cut them out, very fiddly, but worth it I think.

I'm still learning what to use my Slice for but I'm finding the more I use it, the more I love it.

Well, I think it's almost time for bed, but before I go I'd just like to say that I've now been a fully paid up member of this lovely blogging community for exactly one year this weekend, wow, that went quickly, and what a wonderful year it's been. I've met some fantastic, warm, friendly, very talented people, both in cyberspace and in person and I'd just like to sign off by thanking each and every one of my followers for their continued support and inspiration. Here's looking forward to another great year.
