Let It Snow Mini Album! And 200 Followers Blog Candy!

Just look at this darling little Penguin....Isn't he just the cutest thing ever? Today is another challenge for the Design Team over at Cricut Mini Albums, this weeks challenge is snow. I live in Canada and guess what! I hate the snow! If it was up to me I would be moving tomorrow, but hubby just loves it here in Edmonton and I can not convince him to make the big move.

This is a very small album, there are only four pages to put pictures and I am just waiting for my sons family to come over today for a visit , and then I can get a shot of each of his kids playing in the snow.

The oval on the front cover is from a Christmas card I got this year from my BFF and I just had to recycle it. She hand painted the red trim around the edge and the glitter is just so amazing. Thank you Sharon for helping me out with my mini album this time. LOL!


I used Winter Frolic for the darling little Penguin cutting him at 2 inches. His little umbrella was cut from Paisley also at 2 inches and the snow flakes were cut at 3 inches using, When it's Cold Outside.


The snowmen are just something I picked up at the Dollar Store. I also used my Cuttlebug Snowflake folder for all the embossing.


Final touches were my white gel pen, inked around all the edges and added ribbon to match.
I am also going to be entering this mini over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #41 Snowy Delight and Made by Momo Challenge Me Tuesday



Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed and I will see you all back on my next post, which will be some Pink Blog Candy! Just taking pictures now.

What an absolutely darling mini! I haven't made one yet...but this may be exactly what I need to get motivated to make one. I love your choice of red with the snowflakes--a really nice change from all the blue usually seen this time of year. I always enjoy poking around on your blog--you're so creative. I have a new challenge, a planned blog hop and my first ever Design Team call on my own blog--hop over to http://karelj.blogspot.com if you find time and check out my new look for 2011! I hope you are abundantly blessed in this New Year! karelj
