Heart 2 Heart February Scrapbook Challenge

The theme this month fits so well with our weather of late. Usually we have long moderate cold days, but this single digit and below 0 windchill is literally for the polar bears...LOL!!!

Cozy and Cuddly has been a constant theme around here for the last few months. Not going to complain because it's no where near as bad as it could be. Thankfully.
My prayers for the many that were stranded or without power, food, and 
any access to heat sources.
Please read the base rules for the challenge on the
H2H Rules tab.
Below are the requirements for February's challenge.
           * 12" x 12" Layouts showing your interpretation of a cozy/cuddly winter moment. Can be with friends, family, pets, or even yourself with your favorite book or beverage.  
           * Must use CTMH Dimensional Elements
           * At least 1 photo required.

I have got the crud, so me being at my scrap area has not happen in over two weeks. 
My original layout plans had a lot of Artbooking and pics of my daughters from way back in the day. I think this came out better. I went over to Studio J and played all day. Also, I really got familiar with what I am capable of doing with online Scrapbooking.
Hope you like my Studio J Layout.
I would love to see your creations and your take on this months theme.
Just a quick review of how I made my 
Studio J Layout
After signing in & loading my 2 photos, I chose the 
Create My own layout. I selected the 
Family option in the Kits (drop down in upper right)

I loved the color of the papers from the Sweet Home selection, clicked on that grouping, then choose the 2 photo option in the narrow patterns down (drop down upper right corner).
I choose the Interesting Variation option for my layouts.

Once I dropped my photos where I wanted them, I played around with adding the different options of B&T papers along with other cardstock colors. 
Varied the My Stickease (a form of Dimesional Elements) and the embellishments 
to my desired effect. 
This was so stinking easy. Not including my before hand playing around time, I was able to get this layout done in approximately 35 min. For me, that is a record.
Also,I was able to choose a paper that I really loved for this layout that has been retired. I am normally a very traditional Scrapbooker. But, in a bind or for making doubles of the same layout (when I need the girls scrapbooks to have the same layout)
Studio J gets my Approval.
Thanks Close To My Heart for such an easy process with online scrapbooking.
