Are you getting snow???

So sorry this post is getting up late today!  It's been one of THOSE Mondays...the kind where I forgot it was Monday!!  

Believe it or not, it's been a relatively SLOW winter in terms of our snowfall here in central NY state.  We are well below average, but that may still be a lot for some of you (as I live in one of the snowiest cities in the US, according to the Weather Channel!)  

Anyways, I love how the white snow in a photo just makes it so so bright, so I used some Gossamer Blue Get Happy with it's bright colors to go along with my photos!

The snowflake paper in the background was a bit busy, so I used a plain white cardstock behind my photos and just a few strips of paper.  The "sweater" looking paper is from the Fancy Pants Oh Deer collection!

 I also used some other bits from my stash, including some old Crate Paper Bundled Up, and some clear snowflakes from Studio Calico.  I stitched two circles behind the photos to pickup on the "snowball" theme!

    Congrats to Miriam, enjoy your awesome prize!!

  2. Your layout is adorable! I love it!

  3. Love this light, bright layout, it really complements the snowy photos and I love the stitching! I miss good, giant snowstorms. I need at least one a year, and I rarely get them now in VA.

  4. Cool layout! Love the stitching and snowy accents. I rarely get to do snow pages unless we go on vacation to ski!

  5. Snow? What is snow? Not sure I remember as I've lived out here in the desert for so long now!!! Love how you mixed little bits of different collections! Cute pics of the kids too!!

  6. Glad you got a bit of snow to get these fun photos!
    Feel free to take some of our snow!!!
