Winter Fun!

This weeks challenge over at StuckOnUSketches is a Die cut challenge...How fun is that!

For Christmas this year we decided to buy our three granddaughters their first pair of skates. 
The weather has been fairly nice  this winter so I decided to take the girls out for the day, to try out their new skated, we had a blast!

The two younger girls were really scared and of course they were crying and really acting up for there mom so grandma took each one aside and just talked to them and told them they could do it, well before you knew it they were off and having a ball. Jan my oldest granddaughter has never been on ice skates before but she had learned to roller blade last summer so she  had no problem at all. I had brought along two thermoses of hot chocolate and of course my camera. After skating we went to MacDonald's for lunch and called it a day! Today layout is all about our day of ice skating.

I used Camping Critters to cut the trees and pond at 8 inches, there were mountains in the back ground but I just cut they off.
My little ice skater is a SVG file called Bella and Baxtor sledding and skating which I purchased over at My Scrap Chick 
I inked the all the edges added some stickles, flock, bling and some True Snow and embossed  for the finale touches.  I am also going to enter this layout in another couple of my favorite  challenges.First is  Getting Cricky: This weeks Simply Sunday Challenge: Let it Snow!
Next we have Die Cutting Diva: A recipe challenge: Buttons, Bling or Bows, and of course we can't forget Getting Scrappy Challenge: this weeks layout challenge is Flurries of Fun! Hope you enjoyed today's post.
