About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Simply Scrapping Crafts

First thing first, can you say HOLY MOLY SNOW! We have about 30 inches of snow out there, I haven't seen this much snow ever in the 20 years I have lived in Maryland. I grew up in Massachusetts and we would get a lot of snow but still 30 inches! John tried to keep up with it but once the snow blower died it was rough going. The boys had fun playing in the large drifts in our yard, and I will share a cute photo at the end of the post. Onto my page, I found a great site called Simply Scrapping Crafts. It is just amazing. Anyone who is into scrapbooking or wants to
get back to it, this site has a wonderful gallery and a ton of challenge groups that could definitely get you going. Check it out and let me know what you think. I did this page for a sketch challenge and I was a bit intimidated at first. I usually put lots of photos on my pages so I had to really think about this sketch. Of course I still have a ton of Halloween photos left so I have to do the accompining page with a slew of photos. It is hard to be spooky when your kids are wearing bright red, but I have to say I love the outcome. Enjly and I will leave you with a picture of our blizzard.

Love your page. I never would have thought to use the b&w and grey tones for this pic, but it really works! Your guys look like they are having fun in the snow!

Sorry about that. I'll try again.... We got 33.8 inches of snow (national weather service total) here in Columbia, Maryland! The layer of ice under the snow is incredible.... Love the photo of your sons; looks like they are having a wonderful time romping in the snow.

Your Halloween page is beautiful!
