A Look @ Manor House Creations: Part 1

Good morning :)~! Today is the first day of CHA and to all you lucky ducks out there who were able to go- I hope you have a blast and I wish I was there! But instead of being in sunny California, I'm here in ice storm quickly turning snow storm Minnesota...ah well, what am I to do? I guess I can start looking forward to Summer CHA which I plan to attend! How about you?

Today however, I am here to share with you the first of three projects created for Manor House Creations this month. And because I'm here pouting about not going to CHA, I thought I'd show you first a layout that describes EXACTLY how I feel, lol...

"Snow Fun { At All }"
  Being stuck here in cold, wintery Minnesota at the moment TRULY is "snow fun at all", lol...as my daughter felt here after falling in the snow. I got some really great pictures of her in the spam of about five minutes on this day- which you may have already seen on a past project. But when she fell in the snow and her little hands and bottom were all cold and covered, the fun came to a halt!

A closer look:


 I was inspired by this pink/burgundy/lilac color combination. I don't think I've ever used it before but it was perfect for a girly/winter layout :). There are so many gorgeous MHC blooms to choose from and I've included both new and old varieties in this project.



 My hidden journaling. I always include some type of journaling or at least names/dates SOMEWHERE on my project, usually hidden. I feel it's important to record the memory and not just create a pretty page :).

I'm not sure where the accordion banner idea came from- I've probably seen it somewhere before, maybe not. But it was fun to do something different with it :). I love how the drops of glossy accents reflect the melting snow on my daughter's little warm hands :)- I know, sounds kinda cheesy- but that's me :D~!!

Products Used:


I hope your weekend is off to a great start~! I'll be back soon with more MHC projects to share :)- until then, be good~!!

Oh my goodness, Erin, this is simply breathtaking! I love the colors (which are my personal favorite), the flowers and all the sparkle. We are having a very mild couple of days here, very unseasonable. You can send me some of that snow! lol

It is such a sweet, girly lay-out. I love that you went outside the box a bit and used soft pink on this wonderful winter lay-out. I just love the cute flag that you used too.
