Long, lost passion...

Okay, I'll admit it.  Life has been absolutely nutty, embarrassingly busy, but I think I have things under control!  Time to catch up on my blog!  I feel the need to write a heartfelt apology to my blog.  So here it is.

Dear Will Work For Scraps,
I am a terrible blogger-person.  I have neglected you shamelessly due to another MAJOR commitment that is now wrapping up, but I WILL make it up to you.  I really did miss you.  Please accept this apology from the bottom of my heart.  This will not happen again.  :)
Much scrappy love,

Okay, I think we're on better terms now.
On a brighter note, I am one aerobics class (instructing it) away from becoming a qualified fitness instructor specialist!  This was the dark mistress who was keeping me from my blogging, but I am a fitter, happier, and soon-to-be employed person because of it.  :)

I need to give this blog some scrappy love!  Here are a few projects that snuck into my busy last few months...

Conquering The Bunny Hill

Were we crazy to bring our not-even-two-year-old out on the ski-hill?  Maybe.  But if people thought we were nuts, it only took them a minute to see this little natural out on the slopes was right at home!  Again!  Again!!  Joely absolutely LOVED hitting the slopes, and like any dedicated scrapbooker, I LOVED doing a layout featuring our littlest skier!  This was based on a sketch by the fabulous Kristy Lee at  Here's her sketch...

Isn't she seriously amazing?
Here's my take on the sketch.  I actually stuck pretty close to her sketch because it worked so great with the photos I had along with the vision I had for working with this Echo Park collection, Wintertime.
The cardstock used is all from Wintertime, and I just LOVE the cool colours!  So perfect for scrapping so many of my photos...afterall, it seems like it's always winter up North! LOL!
The clear little snowflakes are actually from Imaginisce's Cottage Christmas, and the silver centres are from Dollarama!  I just knew those would come in handy one day! I've been waiting and waiting to use that Martha Stewart icicle punch.  A perfect little touch.  :) Thickers, some ink and ribbon round off this layout, and I almost forgot the Sew Easy to mark the little snowflakes at the top of the page. 

Just looking at this layout brings a smile to my face.  What a little trooper out there on the ski hill!  :D
