Joy and Family - Christmas

Did we have the snownami of the decade or what? I tell you there is nothing blissful about any blizzard except the one from Fancy Pants Designs. Eve though I really like this collection, it still pains me that it is so named!! I cannot find any bliss the aftermath of the 12 inches of snow I have to contend with driving! Woe is me :)
I don't think anyone could have predicted this time last year, we would have our last Christmas in this house that belonged to my parents-in-law for over 35 years.  But there we were, immortalized in front of the fire place.  This year, over the hill to grandma's will be only a mile away!  We might just be able to handle it in a blizzard even! 
I continue to enjoying using Silhouette cuts that are designed for Project Life.  They are perfect for grid designs!  I picked up a ton of designs during the Silhouette online store sale.  For me, it's essential to have a lot of cuts to choose from my own library when I am working on a project. The subscription to the store has been a worthwhile investment for me.  
Here is another plug for the brand new issue hitting the newsstand today: the January/February 2013 issue of Creating Keepsakes! 
I hope mine arrives soon!

What a pretty page!! I love all the Cameo cuts!! I will have to look around through the PL cuts. Good idea. :) The weather just sucked. LOL We got 14" out here. Roads were terrible. DH had to work Sunday. Still not much better last night. It took him over 2 hrs to get home from work in Mpls to RF Monday night. Today it was 1 1/2 hrs to get to work. He is not happy. We need some sun to melt some of that stuff on the streets.
