Crafty snow days

The snow finally seems to be melting but the weather reports say we will get more tonight. I really hope not, I must be getting old as it was fun for a couple of days but now its peeing me off!
I have had more time for crafting though so thats a bonus. My sister dragged her wheelie tote of craft stuff all through the snow and ice on Saturday to come and do some crafting with me as we had to cancel our crop. We were looking through the Handmade magazine and saw a little banner that said NEST so we thought we would have a go at making our own versions.
I made this one for my craft room and have hung it on my cupboard door.
I used cardboard as the base, scraps from my scrapbox, bits of corragated card, stamps, primas and gems. I cut the letters on my Slice and hung a little chipboard heart from one of the tags.

My daughter loved it so on Sunday I sat down with her to make one for her bedroom. She chose all the papers and embellishments and helped to ink it and stick everything on.

Then my son, feeling left out wanted one as well. This was a bit of a challenge as hes nearly 13 and all my embellies are girly! My sis had given me some wizard embellishments so we used these as he loves magic and fantasy.
I am pleased with how well they have turned out and they look great hanging above the doors of the kids bedrooms.

I did this LO today with a photo taken last wednesday of us (the Scott family) in the snow. Ladybird came up with the title as soon as she took the photo!
I used kraft c/s and leftover PP from my JYC which was cosmo cricket, jolly by golly. A little snowflake from paperchase and an october afternoon journalling card finish it off.
Thanks for looking x

Busy, busy, busy. I love those banners and the way you say you just whipped them up. So gorgeous though.

I'm the same - wish the snow would just hurry up and go already. Am fed up being cold.
