Even though we had some snow here in Kentucky this year, I have no new snow pictures to scrap.  I have had no camera of my own for a while now and it is hard to scrap when you count on others for photos, let me tell ya, lol!  Fortunately, one of the benefits of my DH being the PC DR for the family is that I get access to all of the photos from those machines he works on...even to those they wish I had never seen!  Such is the case with these pages I made this week with the newly released WINTER PENGUINS kit by Kimberly Stewart!  I really like the colors of this kit!


Tim is the life-long friend of my DH.  He is also his ex-BIL and his boss, and it seems like he still enjoys to party like its 1999, lol!  I think it does us all good to turn loose and just enjoy ourselves sometimes but I also believe that sometimes, in this ole life, we may attempt to disguise our sadness and longings for something different with a smile on the face and a beer in the hand.  On that note, in typical Good Granny fashion, I added a little bit of "food for thought" with quotes on a couple of the pages:

The below page is my submission for the SBE March Title Take Challenge, Treasured Friends. I used a template from the blog of Happy Girl Scraps with a quote from Epicteatus: "Unless we place our religion and our treasures in the same thing, religion will always be sacrificed."  After I made this, I realized this background paper would be perfect to use a Scrabble-type alpha with for the title.  I know I have one of those somewhere so I will have to search that out for another page with this kit.

On the second of this two-page spread, I used the March SBE Featured Font, Jellyka, Saint Andrews Queen, and sketch template5 freebie by LorieM Designs with a quote from Walter Anderson:
“I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.”


As I watched Tim dance at the company's Christmas dinner last year,  his whole fun dancing style brought to mind Toby Keith's song "Who's you daddy" so that, along with the SBE March Template by Mikki Livanos was the inspiration for the below two-page spread.

For the final "WINTER PENGUINS" page I am sharing with you this week, I used the SBE-HOT Template by Holley Berry Designs for the first page.  Then I decided I really needed to do something more to give the page extra pop to illustrate all the fun Tim was having so I gave the page an "upgrade".


As you can see, these pages have absolutely nothing to do with Kimmi's cute WINTER PENGUINS but she includes so many wonderful elements in her kits that they can be used for so much more than the kit name implies so go forth and be inspired, lol!  Be responsible with your "fun" and Happy Scrappin!
