Well, it’s December in Minnesota and we’ve only had a titch of snow on the ground. I am waiting for the dark brown to be covered in a blanket of white but I’m sure as soon as it has been here for a few days I’ll be pining for spring to show up. I LOVE seeing my 20 something kids turning into their younger selves at the first snowfall, outside building snowmen, lobbing white balls of wonder at each other and hiding behind bushes and walls of snow each claiming victory at their “hits”. Makes me grin with glee just thinking about it.

Love is all around when Eric and Kristin are together. I love how they are with each other, loving, laughing and just being in the moment with each other. I’ve created a Valentine’s Day kit to create some layouts of the two of them together. They are so cute!

I was asked to join a terrific team of designers over at Happy To Create in December, and am loving it. Come check out the site and see what is going on over there. Digital scrapping is so much fun! Check out my store and start scrapping those Christmas and winter photos.

Well for the time being. I just love learning new things and am so happy to have finished my class over at Jessica Sprague. It was a fun class
and I learned so much. I made new friends too. Here’s a sampling of what I made for the class. I’m sure there will be more to follow but for now a
quick peek at what I created.

The San Marco Church and courtyard were only about a 5 minute walk from our hotel and we went there several times. The church is beautiful and I love the painted fresco above the main entrance.
Did I mention the pigeons? They were everywhere and people would hold out bread and they’d fly and perch where ever they chose to land on you.

We took a water taxi to Murano to see the beautiful hand blown glass that is made there. Wow the process that they go through is so fun to watch, and the results that started from a grain of sand is amazing.
These two guys are father and son and have been working together for years. They were at the place now where the son surpassed his father. How cool that they can work together and pass it down from generation to generation.
Here’s a layout of me standing outside the Fornace del Doge. We splurged at this shop and bought our anniversary gift of two hanging lamps for over our bar counter in my kitchen. You can see the design of the glass on our lamps in the strip at the top of the first layout.
On our way to Murano we passed this fantastic lighthouse and I had to get a shot of it because I have a thing for lighthouses. You will definitely be seeing more lighthouses from me in the future.

The Grand Canal is one of the main traffic waterways in Venice. We took a water taxi called a vaporetto to really see what it was like all along the canal. The houses are so beautiful and so are the businesses and churches along the waterway.
Here are some of my favorite layouts using photos I took that day as we rode along. What beautiful weather we had the whole time we were there.
We ended our ride at the Ponte di Rialto or the Rialto Bridge which is the oldest bridge in Venice that crosses the Grand Canal, at one time being the only way to walk across and was origionally made out of wood and eventually constructed in stone by Antonio da Ponte.
