New Month, New Challenges!!!

Is anyone else out there snowed in?  This is the first time in  the 12 years that I've lived here that I have not been able to get to work because of weather.  I can't really say that I mind having a day off mid-week but the company that supplies our telephone, cable and internet has been having technical difficulties.  I didn't mind being without a house phone or cable but no internet has been harder than I would have thought.  Well it's back now, hopefully permanently, so I better get this post out while I can.  Well it’s the beginning of the month which means it’s time for the new challenge reveal over at Scrapbookers Anonymous! February’s challenge is to dig out your old alpha stickers, rub-ons, whatever and use those leftover X’s. I LOVE this challenge!  Here’s my take on it.
Gavin loves his Legos but he rarely wants to make what the kit was intended for. His Legos are now all mixed together and he uses his imagination and makes all sorts of fun things. Things that are way better than what Lego can come up with!
There’s also a new sketch up over at Let’s Scrap. The ladies over there made it easy on us new DT members and made our first DT sketch the same sketch that we had to use for our DT application. So this layout has been posted previously but here it is again.
If you go to Let’s Scrap you’ll see that it is a 2-page sketch but you can choose to do only one of the sides. Head on over there and check out what the rest of the new DT did with it!!!

Great layouts! Love how you sprinkled your X's on your page! We got one snow day out of the blizzard, but no more - only about 6 inches fell down here. I'll take it, though!
