Icicles Layout and an Enabler Alert

Ever look at a word and it just looks like it isn't spelled right? That would be the word icicles for me today. I have even spell checked it! I'm such a dork sometimes! LOL. Anyway, here's a layout I was able create this afternoon. I was in the middle of doing laundry and taking a break from the housecleaning I was doing. The girls were playing rather well together after our playdate this morning. I'm continuing to promote my love affair with Kay Miller Designs! There is a joint gallery for Kay Miller Designs and NitwitCollections and I decided to take a look around. Oh boy! I saw a layout there with an icicle as the subject and I remembered this picture I took of the icicles off our porch at the beginning of the back to back snowstorms we had in late 2006-early 2007. (how many times have I typed icicles now and it STILL doesn't look right to me. LOL)

This layout is the result of that inspiration. I used a template (#84) from Mrs Wresh and the SnowPrincess Kit from Kay Miller Designs. Font is Mammagamma, which I'm sure I pulled off the internet somewhere. :o)
And now here's my enabler alert for those of you who have Cuttlebugs and a Hobby Lobby near you. Kathi posted recently that there were some new Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders coming out. Weeeeeeeeelllllllll...of course I had to hunt and see if I could find any locally....and I was successful this evening! The Hobby Lobby near where I live has the Swiss Dots, Perfectly Paisley and Floral Fantasy embossing folders. AND Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon this week....I was too impatient to buy just one a day with a coupon, so I used the coupon on one and bought the other two outright. (can you believe it) I just knew if I didn't pick them up right then, when I came back they'd be sold out. (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). So, there you go! Just passing along the info. It's up to you what you do with it. (big grin and mischievous giggle)....

Thanks for visiting! I'm going to go scope out some more of the gallery I discovered....Hope you create a little something today.

I guess it's good for me that I don't have a hobby lobby near me or I'd be in trouble. Of course, there's no Michael's or JoAnn's (that's what I get for living on an island;) ). But you did turn me on to papertrey so that's just as bad. I haven't ordered anything from them yet, but it's been hard not to.

I am a dreadful speller so no word I type ever looks correct, because it usually isn't correct.
Love your layout!
Carol :-)

Very Nice! The picture you took is great. Another great layout and everything goes together perfectly. Love the flourishes.

I want some of those new cuttlebug folders too. I hope my Hobby Lobby has them this week.

Love the layout and awesome photo. I don't think I've seen an icicle yet this year. Too cold in Minnesota. Glad you found the embossing folders. Your mention of stores drives me nuts. For the sake of my checkbook, however, it's just as well I live far from commercial civilization . . .LOL.
