A fun Saturday!

My hubby surprised me this morning while we were cooking breakfast. He suggested we take a quick trip Downtown to Navy Pier for Snow Days!
I really wanted to go but I know how much he hates cold weather, so I was really shocked and excited!
After a fabulous day hanging around and checking out the snow sculptures, we finally made it home to warm up.
I needed to warm up my creativity and get to work on more pages.
I chose this fun sketch from Sketch Inspiration #204.
I had this gorgeous picture of my youngest daughter from when we went apple picking. I also had this sheet of cut outs from The Calico Frog - Heartstrings. This sheet has been in the stash forever! I kept forgetting I had it...or was just too lazy to cut everything has been used and I am happy!
I added some fun buttons mixed in with the apple cut outs.
The quote was a challenge from The Paper Variety. We had to use a fun or favorite friend quote on our project. I tried to print this one out on cardstock but now we are having computer issues. I ended up writing it out by hand...and I hate my handwriting!
I framed the quote with a chipboard piece from Bo Bunny's Chunky Charms collection.
I also used a little bit of Brick red Glimmer Mist on the whole background.
I'm also going to enter this for the Open Challenge #3 at Sketches in Thyme. We were allowed to used any sketch we chose for our projects.
Happy Saturday!!
