It's Snowing Here -----------

Yep, that's right, it's snowing here!  It's one of those days when you just want to stay inside.  We are expecting anywhere from 5 to 10 inches with a little sleet mixed in. 
I've been a little MIA these past few days, sick with the flu bug.  I'm feeling a little bit better and hope to catch up on all of your blogs.
I wanted to share a layout I made last week using the January kit from Lucky Girls Crafts.  I won their January blog hop prize and had a $25.00 credit to their store, so I ordered their January Forever Love kit. 
The beautiful woman in the picture is my grandmother, whom we lost to breast cancer many years ago.  This picture of her was taken shortly before she was diagnosed.  
Oh how I miss her.  
Here are a few close ups:

I also have some news to share!!  
Julie Tucker-Wolek has a great challenge blog, These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things and I've been chosen to be a part of her design team!
I'm super excited and can't wait to work with her 24, yes I said 24 amazing DT members!  The blog is all about favorites!  Something new and challenging for me!  My first project will be revealed on February 15th and I can't wait !  
I hope today to finish my layout for the current Sketch Along Tuesdays Sketch Challenge at Frosted Designs.  Our reveal was yesterday and I had started a layout and then came down with the flu.   Please make sure you check out what our amazing DT has created and what are two guest designers have to share.  We've got an amazing prize up for grabs:
and, while you at it, stop on over at Artful Delight to check out Leeanne's  fabulous February kit:
If you love Graphic 45 and Prima, then you are going to want to purchase this kit.
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful LO! Congrats on the DT spot. Your work is amazing. We got snow too, I think we are up to 8-10" or so. The plows stink around here, I haven't seen one all day.

I certainly hope you feel better soon, flu bug is the worst.
