How have you all been? It has been absolutely frigid in my neck of the woods! It has been in the single digits for the past several days and I just heard we're in for a bit more snow too...I'm NOT a fan! I prefer palm trees and flip flops, even Chloe wore a sunhat all morning around the house. We will have to be content dreaming of spring. (And trying to pretend that it doesn't feel like we live in Alaska!!)

Onto the gallery! This is a little card where some of my resolutions are kept. I like to write mine down, so that it seems more like a goal...or a to-do list. Since I am such a "list person." Many of these are my resolutions every year...and I don't think that's a bad thing! :)

A close up shot of the embellishments...aren't those Sassafras Lass button flowers the cutest? They were the perfect little accent for all of my projects!

This October Afternoon alphabet also comes with a full set of numbers which is always fun!
This layout I wanted to tell the story of how every once in a while I get a peek at what Tanner will be like as a teenager. He was going through a "hat phase" and was wearing one everyday when I took this picture. But really it was the look on his face that made me gasp at how much older he looked!
I added glossy accents to the alphabet letters to make them shiny and stand out more on this layout! I thought it really made them pop!
Here is the journaling...using the October Afternoon journaling spots. Perfect!
I pointed the spinner to "try me" to match his expression in the photo. I added a jounaling spot that I punched a hole in and then slit one side to fit around the arrow and then did the same with the cute Maya Road robot...just to add a little bit more detail.
I'll be back tomorrow with more! Have a great night and STAY WARM!!
