Every year our Day Care, All About Kids, puts on a Christmas show that all the children participate in. It is so cute to see all the little ones singing. Bridget was a little ham this year and just loved being on stage. Brian played Father Christmas and had lots of lines. Luckily he was able to read his lines. The kids passed around a microphone and Brian was keeping track of everyone's turn. He wasn't the least bit nervous. I'll be having more of this layout to sell as soon as the base paper comes in.

The good thing about 20 inches of snow is that I had time to scrapbook. Yeah me. We spent a week in Williamsburg at Thanksgiving this year. We ventured to Busch Gardens on Friday night to see their Christmas light display. Boy, was it cold. We were all frozen and they were out of cocoa. Luckily, the lights were beautiful and distracted us for a while from how cold we were.
Getting off my road was a bit difficult, but I made it. There is a good 6 inches on my street but once I made it to Oaklahoma I was good. The parking lot is clear even though the driveway in is covered in a layer of snow.
I left out the Hero Arts cards for Make and Takes for anyone who would like to make a card.

Lisa Hetrick here. Hope everyone is staying WARM. There is lots to do and LOTS of goodness at the store right now, so if you haven't been in, RUN, don't walk.
Now, on to some CHILLY inspiration. This month, the design team has a snowy blast putting together projects using the new frosty Bo Bunny line. I LOVE the mix of blues and purples and the GLITTER papers .... YUMMO!
Great papers and embellishments for your snowy pages, winter cards and projects. Here's what I came up with. The first project uses a piece of circle mdf board (Kaiser) and then I took a fitting off a clipboard and attached it to the circle, making a circle clipboard. After covering it with patterned paper and using the super duper LARGE Bo Bunny clear snowflake stamp, I made a hanging scrapbook. LOVE doing this kind of project. I love getting my pictures out of their scrapbooks and on to the WALLS.
And for all the card creatives, like me.... Here are some card designs sure to inspire. Quick, easy and make use of that YUMMO glitter papers. All the bling... done for you. How cool is that!
Stay warm. Don't forget Hero Arts preview day is tomorrow (Friday the 18th) and Demo Day is this Saturday (the 19th). LOTS of creative inspiration, sales and happy, happy things happening.

My de-stresser this week was working on my design team layout. I just love the Bo-Bunny serenade line. These papers are GORGEOUS! I found they really paired well with the Bo-Bunny dots so I used the Concord Dot as my background and accented with the beautiful serenade papers and embellishments to scrap these photos of my daughter's college performance of the "Vagina Monologues". And, surprise! surprise! my leftover Basic Grey Eerie alphas from an earlier design team layout matched and provided a great title for this page!
Have a safe and happy holiday season ... hope to see you at the all-day crop on New Year's Day if not before!

I used the new Bo Bunny papers.... they are a MUST have! I hand cut the snowman from a pattern I have. I also used the Bo Bunny cardstock sticker pack. I added a tag with journaling on it... its hidden because I do not like my hand writing. But since I dont scrap much for myself, I would forget when and where if I didnt.
I hope you enjoy it!
Ps... I will have them in the store sometime this week!
Another card.. pretty simple too. The ornaments were hand cut and glued on acetate. I used a bit of thin wire to make it look like they have hooks.
I used my Cuttlebug and I believe one of the labels from Spellbinders. The stamp was a dollar stamp sold at photo scraps a while back.

I am working on a couple July 4th layouts now...I will post when I am through with them. Hope to see you at the store soon. Off to veg in front of the TV......Lisa H.
Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. I know I did. I had some time during the Turkey week to scrap a bit and did several layouts. I am quite happy with how they turned out. This layout uses a summer line from Kaiser that I found awesome--I loved all the shades of blue in the papers and found that they worked great for some pictures of a family get-together this summer in Ohio. Hope you like it. Lisa H.
What Photoscraps has a new employee? Yes! My name is Sandy Biddinger and I am the newest employee at Photoscraps. You probably will not see me out front at the counter. I have been hired to update the store's blog and create custom diecuts using the pazzle. I am often found in the computer room in the back using my creative talents to design new and exciting diecuts. Please do not hesitate to make a request. It may just show up on the racks. We will also take your specific custom orders for titles and shapes. (Please allow 1 week for delivery) Just see the person at the front counter to fill out your request.
Capture the magic of your frosty winter days. Layer your favorite photos on the soft winter palette of the Snowy Serenade glitter papers and the beautiful lines of our BoBunny Edgy albums. Add a touch of journaling and create a cherished family album.

Jill has been very sick with the flu so I'm doing her post for her. Before she got sick, she made these adorable Christmas trees from Eskimo Kisses. Jill had purchased some great templates from Inky Antics and used one for the tree boxes. I love how she decorated the trees with ribbons, dew drops and buttons. Hopefully, she will be healthy again soon so she can make us more fun samples!
