The Color Room 89

Winter firmly arrived here in Minnesota a few weeks ago and the kids rejoiced and welcomed it with open arms!  Even I, the grumpy mother, couldn't resist going outside and snapping some snow photos.  I must add that winter must have decided to take a Caribbean vacation because it's been unseasonably warm here this week!  Anyway, here in the photos, Second Child is completed outfitted by clothes from a dear friend of mine.  That hat is just so adorable!  I called it an Eskimo hat, though it really looks more Russian? Who knows, she looks cute in it :) 

Here is another beautiful palette from the Color Room.  I feel like these are shimmery winter colors, especially given the inspiration photo, so that's why I chose these photos for this layout.

Here is a close-up of the title area of the layout.  How adorable is that Cosmo Cricket chippie bird. I really miss their products!  I sure hope they will have new stuff out for the winter CHA coming up!
Christmas is fast approaching and I am furiously working on getting a big project wrapped up before I take Christmas break off for the first time since I started working!  There's always the 23rd for shopping! lol.  Have a wonderful evening and I hope to be back soon, which means I should probably make a project or two first! :)

My gosh, this is adorable! Love, love every little thing about this, Jing Jing. Awesome photos and awesome colors. Love the papers you mixed and love how you used the circle elements. And that little bird just makes me smile. How I've loved that Cosmo line. :)
Enjoy your burst of warm weather. I'll take that any day over too much snow. ;)

Very very cute! Perfect papers!! I love the color palette and all of your layers. Yes... where did winter go?? I didn't mind the rain we got. I actually prefer that to shoveling all the snow that could of been! At any rate, I much prefer this warmer weather. Have a great weekend! I think a trip the Jackson Street roundhouse to see the trains and Santa is in order this weekend.
