Sunny to Snowy


Yeah, it was rough.  :)

But I'm back.  I kinda crashed when I got back...was just exhausted from all the traveling I think.  But I am starting to think about starting to get back to normal life.  :)

I left the beautiful warm weather in the Bahamas....and returned to snow.  Got to the airport, could see my breath, and I immediately wanted to turn around and go back.

Somehow the cruise made the weather here in Colorado a lot less magical.

We still have snow covering the ground, although it hasn't actually snowed since our storm a couple weeks ago.  And I am longing for summer.  But it provides to perfect segue to share this project with you....


Last month on the BasicGrey blog we had a snowflake challenge and this was a layout that I did for it.  It uses a variety of BasicGrey collections, bits and pieces of this and bits of that.  I've done this before, but I just cut the snowflakes out the old fashioned way--fold and cut.  I like the texture it gives to the page to see the creases in the papers too.

Here are the close up's:


I also wanted to share a couple challenges with you.  This month, if you remember, Once Upon a Sketch and Get Creative have swapped DT's.  I wanted to share BOTH challenges with you, and encourage you to participate if they look fun to you!  :)

It's a holidays/vacations themed challenge over at Once Upon a Sketch, to be combined with this sketch:

And then over at Get Creative you will find this sketch challenge:

Hope you can play along!  


Well thanks so much for popping in today!!!!

I hope you have a FANTASTIC day!!!

Oh Pam! I absolutely LOVE that shot of the feet and book! What a great photo, sorry you had to come back to the snow however! We were supposed to get snow this week, but none, so I guess I'll have to wait a while to get to use all those snowmen embellishments I have been collecting! LOL Love Penny Scrap-aholic@blogspot.com
