Happy Monday my internet friends!

I hope your weekend was pleasant and relaxing.

Mine was very pleasant but also extremelly challenging. Dan and I had a quiet weekend together at the cottage. The catch....the roads to the cottage are not plowed so we had to walk 3.5kms in about 10 inches of snow!!! YIKES!!! Talk about challenging. We left Friday night, so we hiked in the dark...SCARY!!!! It was pitch black and so very quiet - I kept looking behind me in case a bear was creeping in on us. What an experience. We hiked back out yesterday in daylight, that was much more pleasant. I have pictures to share. I'll have another separate blog post. I was pretty proud of myself to have achieved this.

Onto some scrappy things...

Here's the latest lo that I created using Lily Bee Design French Couture collection, that you can see here. I love the warm rich tones combined with the trendy patterns! Such a fabulous line.

I love to layer alpha letters. I find it really makes the title pop up from the lo. Here is a close up of my title, you will see what I'm talking about.

In case you didn't know Lily Bee Design has a great message board that you can join to share layouts and any Lily Bee Design talks and projects. You can see it here.


In other fun scrappy news, Color Conspiracy at European company has a online site!! It's fabulous for us North Americans because CC products are not yet available here so we can now order online. I've been a fan of this company for a while now and I'm so glad for Maya and her new venture! Congrats girl!!!! Check it out - Color Conspiracy.

That's all for today my sweet friends. I will be back soon with my post about my grueling yet very rewarding hike to the cottage.

Ah ya, I don't think I'd be hiking in the dark,in deep snow,with the thought of bears around.

Your layout is great.They have some really nice papers.

Never heard tell of the other site you mentioned,but I'm off to check it out.
