Make It Monday #80 @ The Memory Nest

Hello everyone! Happy Monday to you! I hope that you had a good weekend! After a weekend of freezing rain, which caused us to lose a big limb on our pear tree, we are now forecast to have thunderstorms and 60 degree weather today! Crazy weather around here!

Today is Make It Monday #80 over at The Memory Nest. Leslie has created a fun collage type sketch for us to work with.

I have used Simple Stories "Winter Wonderland" collection on this layout of Ada enjoying the first snow of the season. We didn't get a lot back in December, but enough that she could go out and walk around in it. Oh how she wanted to build a snowman, but there wasn't enough to do that! She kept on about it until Abby finally took her out and they built a tiny snowman.

The only thing that is not from the Simple Stories collection is the little snowman stamp that says, "Baby It's Cold Outside". That is from a Studio G $1 stamp set. When I finally decided I "needed" this collection, it was mostly sold out, and about all I could get was a few sheets of paper and the enamel dots, so I had to get a little creative with what I had, but I love the way it turned out.

I added in a couple of snowflake die cuts and buttons for embellishments. I will add in a little bit of journaling on the "I {heart} winter" block when I figure out what to say in that little space!

Head on over to The Memory Nest to see the fabulous layouts from the rest of the design team. You have until the end of the month to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day!
