With all the wintery weather we’ve had this week, I thought I’d share with you a snow layout I made. No, it’s not from this past week. We only got wintery mix and some touches of flurries, but TONS of sleet and freezing rain!
These photos are from my childhood. We lived in Virginia for a few years and we had a big snow one winter! This photo is of my sister standing on a sidewalk in the snow.
I remember that snow very well! We had tons of fun sledding down a nearby hill with our friends. I have no idea how we were able to play for so long in such bitter temperatures! Just being outside for a short while when it’s in the 30s is TOO cold for me, now! I remember coming inside with soggy mittens or gloves, and being impatient to go back out into the cold again!
I had lots of fun making this layout! I love the cool blues and white in this one. The transparency is a super old one from my stash. I think it’s from 2006! It’s made by Heidi Swapp. Lots of outlined layers stacked up! The cluster over on the right is several label pieces layered with some embellishments. I added a liberal sprinkling of some sequins for some added sparkle. It was hard to just sprinkle them and let them be glued where they fell, but I did it! I’m not usually that brave! Most of my embellishments are carefully thought through and planned! More sparkle was added with the delicately glittered snowflakes and the silver and white twine. Some punchinella was also tucked in the layers for more visual interest and shine.
Is it snowing in your area? Is this year a colder than typical year? It certainly has been colder than normal here!
As we head into the weekend, take a moment to indulge in your creative side! Remember to link up to the Make Something Monday Challenge #4 by Sunday at midnight! (the challenge is to use pop-dots)
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday with a new challenge!
