Now on to the show! Let's start off by getting to know me a little better...

Allison Cope

I am a mom of only one little boy, 4 year old Spencer.
I am married to my best friend, Todd, for over 2 years now.
Our little family of three live in the wilderness of the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.


Here are 10 random facts about me....
  1. I walk with my big toes pointing up! Yup... for some reason I don't like planting my big toes on the ground when I walk... strange!!!!!
  2. I have only driven an automatic car maybe 10 times in my whole life! I have only owned stick-shift vehicles in my "driving" life.
  3. I got married to Todd in a BLACK wedding dress. Yup! BLACK!
  4. I am addicted to my computer. I use it so much that my poor husband had to go out and buy his own just to have time on a computer!!!
  5. My first scrappy publication was in a British magazine called The Scrapbook Magazine about 4 years ago.
  6. I giveaway a FREE set of myStamp BOX stamps EVERY month to one of my lucky blog readers. Click the banner at the top of my blog for details!
  7. We have LOTS of deer that trot through our yard everyday. I have loved watching all the does with their sweet little fawns grow up all summer long. And apparently jack o'lanterns are a deer delicacy.
  8. We moved to BC a little over a year ago. It took my Mom, my son and I only 3 days to drive out here from my home province of Ontario.
  9. I am afraid of heights!! On my second date with my husband, he convinced me to go snowboarding with him and I had to take a ski lift for one of the first times in my life. Awww!
  10. I met my husband through an on-line singles forum! We have been inseparable ever since... almost 6 years later!
For today's blog hop, here's the sketch that Tina designed for all us of to use as our layout base....


I took Tina's sketch and rotated it 90 degrees and this is what I came up with....

First Snow

supplies: patterned paper, alphabet stickers, gem snowflake, button, BasicGrey; transparent snowflake paper, Making Memories; adhesive pearls, Kaisercraft; transparent snowflakes, MAMBI; other, thread.

Thanks for playing along, and now you can hop on over to SUSAN'S BLOG. Don't forget to leave a comment!
