Circle Blog Weekly Challenge #16--Cute As a Button Sketch Challenge

This is my entry for the Cricle Blog Weekly Challenge:

The blog weekly challege from Friday, 1-14-11, was as follows:
Babies are definitely “cute as a button” with their sweet little faces and tiny features. In honor of our Baby Theme, this week we challenge you to create a SCRAPBOOK PAGE or CARD using the sketch below. Your project doesn’t need to follow the sketch exactly, but it should be apparent that you used it as inspiration. Feel free to turn it on it’s side or move elements to fit what you are doing. In addition to using the sketch, we also want you to incorporate STAMPING and BUTTONS (of course!).  Project must be newly created for this challenge and must include atleast 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge to qualify.

I used MS Cake Cartridge to cut the scallop trim and a small Inkadinkado snowflake stamp to stamp white and blue snowflakes all over it.  I then used the Winter Woodland cartridge to cut "Let it Snow" and the snowflake.  I used two buttons that resembled snowflakes and added a pink jewel in the middle.

We have had snow 2 years in a row!!  We hardly ever get snow, mostly we get ice.  January 9, 2011, we only got a few small flurries, but Keeley could hardly wait to get outside and "taste" it.  Last year on February 10, 2010, we got 4 inches and in soom places 6 inches!!  Keeley was able to get a good "taste" and she was able to build a ""tiny"" snowgirl! 

It was bitter cold today, only 31 when I went to pick Keeley up from school at 2:00pm and the wind was straight out of the north and blowing hard.  It's supposed to get down into the low 'teens tonight.  I really don't like cold weather!!!
