It's FREEZING out.

I missed our 5 minutes of warm weather. We warmed up to -3 just like the weather-man said. It happened at 8am this morning. My friend, Melody, got to enjoy it when she drove her son in to work. I slept in. By the time I crawled out of bed it was -22, feels like -34. I missed it!

So instead of getting outside and playing in the snow today I spent another day keeping warm indoors, playing on the 'puter and scrapping. I stumbled across another challenge blog and decided to play along. The blog is Dreamgirls and the challenge is to create a layout using the word "NEW" in the title or journaling. And layout must be Black and White. And handmade embellishment being the only additional color.
For my handmade embellishment I layered gold vellum circles on black paper. Added a red circle with some rub-on stitch corners I've had forever and a white button in the center. All the edges are crumpled and distressed.

And I got to use my new toy for the first time. Check out my Revolution. I actually bought it back in November but just got around to putting it together and figuring out how to use it this afternoon. I love the swirley 12" die (my only die so far)
