My first post at "A Work of Heart"

I am so excited to start my personal blog.  I have been so busy working on the Shelly's Images blog and just haven't had time to work much on a personal blog.  But I often want to share crafts, projects, ideas, and just day to day life, so I thought now was as good a time as any to dive in and get started.

 This project is for the challenge at Shelly's Images Blog this week.  The challenge this week is a special 2 week challenge called "There's no business like SNOW business".  Be sure to drop in at the Shelly's Images blog to see all of the projects by the DT. 

Image: Shelly's Images "Snow Lady"
Coloring: Copics
Papers: Bazzill Cardstock and Patterned Paper from my stash
Extras: Snowflake Brad, Holographic Embossing powder for edging the title and to add sparkle to the snowflakes, Clear embossing powder to add shine to the carrot nose and hat greenery, Twinkling H20 to add shimmer to the snowlady.

It seems like AGES since I worked on a layout and I have to say that layouts are a whole different beast from creating cards.  It took me a little time to get back into the swing of creating a scrapbook page.  But I am SO far behind and really have to get busy creating scrapbook pages again.  I think that will be my New Year's Resolution.

Thanks for coming to see my first post here.  I am so excited to share lots of works of heart here.
