Practical Scrappers: January Layout Sketch

Hey Everyone...It's my first post with Practical Scrappers!  YAY!  You will see about 3-4 projects per month from me all on different days of the week.  I love the schedule and how we can just choose what we want to do as a design team member! 
This was our layout sketch this month...
And I was totally inspired by it! 
Here is my layout...
I decided to use a few pictures that I just took on December 20th of this year.  It was the first snow of the year and Brooke (3.5 years old) really, really wanted to go out and play.  Both of my kids had colds SO...I tired to keep saying no and at noon, I finally gave in. 
Noah only lasted 5 minutes until he fell down and got his hands wet and wanted to go inside.  But Brooke played in the backyard for almost an hour that day!  She was having FUN!  And she took a great nap that day too!
So...for this layout, I started with a Tempting Turquopise cardstock base (Stampin Up!).  The designer papers on this layout came from My Mind's Eye.  I used a new stamp set from Hero Arts (Friendly Flags) for those cute little banners...stamped using: Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise and Lucky Limeade inks by Stampin Up!
I used the Designer's Calendar Cricut cartridge to create the title for the layout in Tempting Turquoise cardstock. 
The brads and thread that I added to the banner are by Stampin Up!  The wood heart is by Studio Calico.

And instead of snowflakes like the sketch, I used buttons!  All buttons and thread are by Stampin Up!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I hope that you enjoyed my first project for Practical Scrappers.  Make sure to visit the Practical Scrappers blog to see all of the fun layouts today!
Come back tomorrow for my take on the next Hiding in my Craft Room Challenge!
