Merry Monday Challenge Week #71

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
It was another busy one here! 
Saturday, we ran to the local orchard for tomatoes to make our yearly batches of salsa and Sunday we spent all day making it! I shouldn't say "we" as it was mostly Shawn doing the work. I just popped into the kitchen here & there to clean up after him a few times but for the most part I stayed downstairs and stamped the time away!

So, here we are at Monday again and that means it's time for another sketch from Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper. The sketch she gave us for Merry Monday is an easy one! I hope you can find some time to play along this week and to also stop by Lesley's blog to see what the other Merry Maker's have created....lots of inspiration!

I used my new pack of holiday paper from Stampin Up called Winter's Frost. This comes from the 12 X 12 pack. I was inspired with the colors & snowflakes that are in the paper.
I used a Spellbinder's Create A Snowflake set 1 for most of the snowflakes. I had to overlap some to make them fit in the sketch but I do like the look of it. I added some different sized rhinestones for a bit of sparkle. I also pulled my colors from the paper, Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Pool Party. Sounds like something from the tropics! :)

Well, that is all for me today! 
Another busy day ahead!
Today is my Dad's 78th birthday and I am cooking a big supper for my parents & all the kids tonight. I'm tired just thinking about it but I am happy to do it! There isn't nothing I wouldn't do for my Dad!! :)

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!!
