Love and Friendship

Hello everyone it is once again Tuesday and we here are getting hit with another huge snowstorm. When it is done it will be Thursday morning and we will have had 12-20 more inches of snow! Our town here in Massachusetts already has 69 official inches of snow on the ground and we haven't even got to February yet. I just got the call that they are letting school out early today (11:45 instead of 3:20) so everyone gets home safely. I am sure school will be canceled on Wednesday so I will be able to play some while house bound!

Being Teusday it is also time for another fabulous challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations!

This week we have a wonderful theme for you "Love or Friendship". We also have a awesome sponsor this week
Di's Digi Downloads
These are some of the cutest digis I have ever seen. They were so wonderful to give us some to play with this week. I chose this adorable bear and ducky, can't you just feel the LOVE! Be sure to stop by and check out all her other cute digis. One lucky person is going to win 5 digis of their choice from Di's Digi Downloads. You can't win if you don't play so link up your creations over at Scrap-Creations.

The ladies did a fantastic job this week on their creations so stop by and let them inspire you and see some more of Di's Digis
