Kakabeka Falls

Hands up...  who is sick of Winter yet?
Jenny doesn't look like she is in this layout with photos from Kakabeka Falls, ON. 
Winter scenery is a beautiful thing to photograph and I love how Jenny has made me feel all toasty inside with the "Warm & Cozy" Collection from Carta Bella. A simple design that makes a great page for a wonderful memory. Thanks for the great page.

2015 Promises

This Year I will...
How have you been doing on your New Year's Promises?  Did you make any crafting related resolutions?
Pat Betmanis documented her 2015 Resolutions on this fun page from Simple Stories - Life Documented Collection. It is a really good example on how you can make scrapbook pages without a featured photo. Just highlighting the journaling is a fantastic idea. Thank Pat!

This will be the last Design Team Submission for Pat - We thank her for all her hard work and look forward to seeing the items that she creates in the future.
